Thanks to the newly relaunched MarioTestino.com, we can peep Mario's stylish work in one place. As one of the rare shutterbugs to reach iconic status — joining the ranks of Irving Penn, Herb Ritts, Annie Leibovitz, Richard Avedon, and Rankin — the Peruvian photographer has snapped A-list celebs, glossy fashion editorials, and high-profile ad campaigns for more than 30 years. Now, after showcasing his work in the London Portrait Gallery, in countless magazines (including Vogue, V Magazine, and Vanity Fair), and in 11 photo anthologies, we can see his close friend and muse Kate Moss reapplying lipstick, Prince William and Kate Middleton on their engagement day, Gwyneth Paltrow celebrating her '98 Oscar win, and a young Gisele Bundchen in her native Brazil all in one go. We love that the revamped site reads like a who's-who in star-studded names, but best of all? He has the ability to make even the most casual photo shoots look utterly glamorous. Take a look at our favorite Mario shots thus far; then, head over to his site to see his portfolio in full.
Irving Penn, lensman extraordinaire, died today in his Manhattan apartment, at 92. The famed photographer is best known in fashion for shooting vibrant scenes for Vogue. He married model Lisa Fonssagrives and they spent 42 years together until her death in 1992. I don't have a favorite Penn photograph, I think it's time to take a look at the artist's work, pay tribute, and select something special.
