Mario Testino and the Girls

December 3, 2009 — 3 Comments

I can’t remember when I first saw a Mario Testino photograph, but I do own his book PORTRAITS, which is big and pretty and has loads of pretty photos too. I love it.

You know Testino, right? If you don’t, think of any model of celebrity… and he’s probably photographed him. He’s photographed everyone but me, it seems. That’d be awesome, be photographed by Mario Testino. Come on, Mario! We can have food together in Lima. It’ll be fun. LOL

So now it will be a Mario Testino day~~~

I love his photography best when he goes simple. I really seem to not be able to stand most his high fashion photography though. I always feel it’s forced… like when he shoots Natalie Portman, and I love her. And she’s got some awesome photoshoots, but her Testino work doesn’t seem to click.

But I do love his almost naked composition, over-exposed, natural light, grainy and slightly out of focus. There’s something about that style that makes me tingle. Many of those last photos of Princess Diana are like that. They’re gorgeous.

That’s it for the first batch, check back for the 2nd~~~

Yeah, the new film from Lars Von Trier doesn’t deserve an Ooh La~ it’s far to creepy, that’s why it deserves an evil laugh. *MUAHAHA*

I wonder WHEN the final installment of the Lars Von Trier trilogy, Wasington, will get (if ever) made~~
