Alessandra Ambrosio, Jimmy Fallon and Doutzen Kroes for Vanity Fair.

Alessandra Ambrosio, Jimmy Fallon and Doutzen Kroes for Vanity Fair.

Late Night With Jimmy Fallon may not be readily available to all us Brits, but that hasn’t stopped us taking him to our hearts as one of the funniest, down to earth guys around. His frequent skits with pal Justin Timberlake (catch their hilarious hashtag sketch here) rack up ridiculous numbers of hits on YouTube, and his on-point yet respectful interviewing techniques make him beloved of established A-listers and up-and-coming Hollywood stars alike.

As if to cement his name in hosting history, Vanity Fair have popped him on their latest front cover, flanked in Bond girl-esque manner by none other than Victoria’s Secret royalty Alessandra Ambrosio and Doutzen Kroes.

It’s high time Mr Fallon received such a commendation, though it seems he is a little bashful of how far it seems he has come. Which of course, makes us love him all the more. Jimmy took to Instagram to express his gratitude and amazement at his latest exploit, he wrote:

‘Okay – this is one of those – is this happening – moments. As a kid from upstate NY – Vanity Fair is… a major investment. Yes. You know it, all of the big stars are on it – classy, cool and untouchable. I WOULD’NT even dream to be mentioned in it let alone the cover. To spend my money to buy a magazine was a giant deal. (Rolling Stone, Tigerbeat, MAD) But Vanity Fair? That is a down payment. Just BUYING A COPY meant that you know what’s up and you are doing well. I remember making that investment and reading and reading and keeping the magazine – like an old book. It was like the actors got a story (not necessarily the one they wanted) but a real story – plus Dominick Dunne murder mysteries – it kindof was a book.I still have some of my favorite magazines (SPIN, Details and Grand Royal (beastie boys fans know what I’m talking about)). To meet David Kamp and know he’s writing about me is weird. To have ANNIE LEIBOVITZ take a picture of you is a story alone! These supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio and Doutzen Kroes were in the east river at 7am in December FREEZING in a bathing suit (it’s the 50th ann of SI Swimsuit Issue) I was freezing in my suit as well but these guys were troopers. I asked them if they ever looked BAD in anything. They are so pretty. They said of course!! It was then that I realized I could’ve been a supermodel. Anyway- here I am. On the cover of Vanity Fair and I’m psyched, amazed, shocked and happy. Just so you know. J’

What a guy. And hats, shoes and coats off to Doutzen and Alessandra for donning bathing suits for a shoot in temperatures that Jimmy deemed to be ‘FREEZING’!

It is clear that despite the temperatures, the shoot was an entertaining one, and as soon as the cover was announced, Doutzen Kroes took to Instagram to share some behind-the-scenes snaps of the morning. Take a look below. As Vanity Fair’s cover line ran, ‘Heeeeeere’s Jimmy!’.
