Following introductions from Ed Razek (from Victoria's Secret), Richard Branson (who let them shoot at his home), and Russell James, we get right into the photographs. Models Brooklyn Decker, Miranda Kerr, Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton, Emanuela de Paula, Jarah Mariano, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and Lindsay Ellingson are all featured, whether frolicking in the ocean, concealed by branches, or simply reclining on the sand. Most shots are black and white photos, though a few color ones pop up throughout the book.
V2 is a quite beautiful book, capturing the beauty of some of the world's most beautiful models without devolving into mere prurience. It is creative, talented, a bit surprising, and quite stunning.
