Topic: Mario Testino
Remember when Kate Middleton and Prince William sat for Mario Testino in their first official portrait? Middleton wore a lovely cream Reiss dress that sold out in no seconds flat and everyone thought they looked comely and happy and the world felt whole for a fleeting second? Cool; now imagine it with a baby. More
Since Gisele is a supermodel–and supermodels get even more famous if they drop the baby weight in zero minutes–she is posing with toned, sweaty stomach exposed. She was shot by Mario Testino, of course. More
For their spring/summer 2013 ad campaign, Stuart Weitzman spent a dillion dollars to have Mario Testino shoot Kate Moss wearing just enough of their clothes to cover her naughty bits. One might think this would be a recipe for success, but there are two main problems as far as I can see: the poor use of Photoshop and the fact that she’s making the exact same face in every picture. I will never understand why a brand would hire a supermodel known for her ability to be expressive and then coach her into utter blandness. Unless being bland is their brand? Take a look. More
That’s another for the pile, Mr. Testino. More
Is there anyone who hasn’t yet tired of Rihanna‘s whole bondage/rough sex/bad girl aesthetic? More
We were bracing for an abrupt induction of the latest member of the “powerful and influential famous women who insist they aren’t feminists” club. More
Lots of women go topless or bottomless or simply lingerie-clad in photo shoots for magazines. More
Tom Brady plays football but the fashion industry has decided he’s just too beautiful for all that pummeling and grunting, so they’ve bestowed upon him a nebulous career in being handsome. Thus, here is Tom Brady wearing a Givenchy suit on the cover of V, photographed by Mario Testino, styled by Carine Roitfeld and interviewed by Tom Ford himself (the full-court press). The New England Patriots’ quarterback and husband to Gisele Bundchen probably said some pleasant things in that interview, but it’s Ford who says all the interesting stuff. More

What do you get when you combine up-and-coming supermodel Sky Ferreira, master photographer Mario Testino, and an homage to Like A Virgin era Madonna? A damn fine editorial is what. See, magazine editors? There are lots of other iconic blondes to channel besides Marilyn Monroe. Maybe try channeling Courtney Love next. More
In an astonishing turn of events, news leaked this week that a thin, white, conventionally attractive blonde girl will be featured on the cover of American Vogue. That girl is “country cutie” (our preferred epithet) Taylor Swift and that issue will run in February. Here’s the full spread and–not being an asshole for once, guys!!–we like the throwback feel of the cover.
…The editorial, however? Not so much. Looks an old Fashion Rocks insert and floppy hats are still being used to signify “edgy bohemian glamor.” Swift was shot by Mario Testino wearing some monumentally ugly clothes (but also pretty Rodarte Van Gogh prints!). Take a look. More
