Mario Testino Page 2
It’s the end of June, so of course we’re starting to hear all about those oh-so-important September issues. (Fashion mags are funny like that, you know?) Just as we reported last month, it is indeed believed that Kate Moss will grace the cover of Vogue. In a more surprising cover choice, it looks like Vanity Fair has chosen Lindsay Lohan to front the glossy.
It looks like Vanity Fair might have to send Mr. Timberlake a fruit basket because he’s just been bumped from the July cover of Vanity Fair. Who’s taking his place? The royal couple, of course. We revealed Will and Kate’s Vanity Fair cover last month: the long-awaited, never-before-seen photo from Mario Testino’s engagement portraits. As much as we love the Prince and Princess, we don’t love the cover — and now we know it wasn’t even the original!
Scans of Emma Watson‘s July Vogue cover have surfaced, and we really dig it! As we heard earlier this week, Watson indeed wears fall Prada, but that’s not all that references the cooler months ahead.
For those of you who thought we were finally done with royal couple coverage, we’ve got bad news. And for those of you who (like us!) still can’t get enough, we’ve got great news. Kate Middleton, er, Princess Catherine, er, the Duchess of Cambridge and her hubby Prince William are set to appear on the July cover of Vanity Fair. And that’s not all.
Like most people in the fashion establishment, photographer Mario Testino has said some lovely things about Duchess Catherine. But if he had to pick a favorite subject, he says Princess Diana would win hands down.
Ten days ago, Stefano Gabbana committed the ultimate faux pas: he unintentionally betrayed Anna, and leaked June’s Vogue cover. Vogue was not pleased! Now the cover is officially out, so we can (once again!) show it to you. It’s pretty!
Look, it’s not like Kate Moss has never taken stunning nude (or almost nude) photographs in the past, so her butt-naked cover for the 36th anniversary issue of Vogue Brasil shouldn’t be that big a deal. And yet somehow, it just is.
It’s only fitting that the May issue of Vogue UK is totally and completely royal wedding-obsessed. Not only is there a feature on Kate Middleton (who they call Catherine), a piece on fashion brides, and guide to being a perfect wedding guest, the magazine also went all out when it came to the cover.
Being Lady Gaga must be so very strange. Not only does she feel the need to travel by egg and birth guns in music videos, but she’s quite possibly one of the most famous people in the world — so famous, in fact, that some of her biggest fans are they themselves quite famous.
The newest issue of V Magazine hit newsstands today, and singer Britney Spears is all over it. The 29-year-old pop diva is hard at work promoting her new album Femme Fatale, so what better than a magazine cover and spread that features her in all her glory? Or, at least a glory preserved in an amber glow?
Buried somewhere under Sunday’s barrage of Oscar-themed tweets was the following earth-shattering, 140-character revelation shared by fashionable boy about town Derek Blasberg: Mario Testino shot Britney Spears for V magazine’s March issue. The exact word Blasberg used to describe the pairing was “EPIC.” We’re not so sure.
Lady Gaga‘s March cover of American Vogue seemed to make the magazine’s advertisers happy — and from the looks of things, it’ll make readers happy, too.
Mario Testino‘s engagement portraits of Prince William and Kate Middleton are lovely (even if they were retouched), and the photographer tells the lovely story of their lovely creation in the current issue of Vogue. Testino, no stranger to capturing royalty on film, gushes prolifically about the queen-to-be, adding another few hundred words of evidence to the library of information indicating that no one dislikes Kate Middleton.
Earlier today, Carine Roitfeld revealed she’s stepping down as editor in chief of Vogue Paris, effective January. And while she spoke to Cathy Horyn about her plans for the future — which is to say, she apparently has none — we can’t help but take a look back. January marks Roitfeld’s 10th year editing the French glossy, which makes February 2001 her very first issue. Let’s take a look.
Kate Middleton may have done her own makeup for her super duper official royal engagement pics with Prince William, but that doesn’t mean the photos weren’t subjected to some retouching. Scandal! Except, you know, not really.
We sure didn’t have to wait long for Kate Middleton and Prince William‘s Mario Testino-shot royal engagement photos to be released! Testino took two pictures — a formal shot in the Council Chamber of St. James’s Palace‘s State Apartment, and a more casual one in the palace’s Cornwall Room.
If you’re marrying the Prince of England, you can pretty much assume that your engagement (and wedding) photographer is going to be someone huge. And not like, Best In The Wedding Photography Business huge, but Best In The Entire World huge. So it should come as no surprise that Kate Middleton and Prince William’s engagement photoshoot was done by one of fashion’s most famous and most revered lensmen. Any guesses?
It was really only a matter of time before Donatella Versace asked Mad Men star January Jones to front one of her campaigns. They’ve been an inseparable pair ever since the designer tapped the actress to star in an Elle spread featuring her dresses last spring. Or, at least as inseparable as they could get through Jones wearing Versace almost everywhere she went.
It’s finally happening: Lady Gaga is set to appear on the cover of the March issue of US Vogue. Sources tell Just Jared that Gaga’s cover will be shot by Mario Testino later this month. Oh, and she may be in the new Muppets movie.
In a fabulous yet somehow unexpected choice, Angelina Jolie covers the December issue of Vogue. We’re not sure why we think it’s unexpected — this is her fourth Vogue cover, after all — but somehow Jolie and Vogue, especially the utilitarian, fashion-eschewing Jolie she’s become, make for a surprisingly odd couple. But no matter, the interview is fascinating and wide ranging, and the portrait — shot by Mario Testino — is gorgeous.
