When a photographer’s fame almost eclipses that of his A-list subjects, you know you’re talking Testino. This Collector’s Edition presents a sumptuous selection of studio work and candid shots, shimmering with pure Testino style. Highlights include a beaming Gwyneth Paltrow with her Oscar, a fur-cloaked Jennifer Lopez, and the unforgettable portraits of Diana, Princess of Wales.
The mere mention of Mario Testino’s name evokes a rush of adrenalin in anyone that cares, even a bit, about the worlds of fashion and celebrity. So omnipresent is he at major magazine shoots and A-list events—an insider if ever there was one—that he has become a celebrity himself. The launch of Testino’s latest book, to celebrate his inaugural exhibition in China, brings together an exciting selection of his best studio work with glamorous examples of his candid shots. A beaming Gwyneth Paltrow clutching her freshly-won Oscar, a fur-cloaked Jennifer Lopez atop a commode, and the unforgettable portraits of royalty including Diana, Princess of Wales, and her sons are just a few of the hundreds of iconic pictures that are brought together, for the first time, inside the book. Testino’s best recent advertising and fashion work rounds out the selection, making this a must-have collector’s item.
Limited Collector’s Edition of 1,500 signed copies, each with lenticular cover portrait of Lady Gaga and delivered in an injection-molded plastic box.
