I love finding images of supermodels in unexpected places, especially when the model in question is Veruschka and the magazine is Cosmopolitan. Looking fierce and feline as always, Veruschka poses alongside another model in an array of sparkling white outfits that are are guarenteed to "To cool him off but also turn him on..." Sadly her Amazonian body and smouldering eyes were not included, but the ensembles are definitely ones to inspire lust and love...
