Vogue UK: Florence Welch

Florence Welch

Looks a bit aged, no? Like, what did Testino do to Florence? The couture-wearing musical goddess did not ask for such misrepresentation. Blech.

Vogue UK: Freja Beha and Arizona

This is particularly breathtaking and refreshing for Testino as of late. Starring Freja Beha and Arizona Muse, this editorial had potential to be yet another stereotype casting of the two, but the direction and styling alone is gorgeous. Freja emits slightly more emotion and plays her role with more emphasis than Arizona does, but I can’t say I expect much from Arizona already. Regardless, the two make for a stunning shoot in Chanel and in – brace yourselves for my regular fap to Givenchy – but the iris print in the Givenchy photographs so well. I’m dying for the pops of color in the otherwise use of black and white.

Vogue September 2011: Kate Moss

Kate in McQueen

I still claim that my invitation was lost somewhere in the mail. Kate’s wedding was the wedding to be at, and such a darling wedding at that. Who cares about the royal wedding nonsense when the Kate Moss is getting married?

First off, I want to thank Anna Wintour for not only providing a lovely cover, but providing us all with a brilliant idea for the September issue: Kate’s wedding. She is but the queen, am I right?

Going through the photos, some big names were in attendance at her wedding. There was Stella McCartney and her father, Paul McCartney, Jack White and Karen Elson, Hamish Bowles, Naomi Campbell, Marc Jacobs,  Daphne Guinness, Lara Stone, and many others were all their to witness the nuptials and the soiree that happened after. Such a charming celebration it must have been.

For photos, follow the cut or go to Vogue.com. I know I will be purchasing this issue the moment I find it on newsstands.

Vogue UK May 2011: Lara, Natalia, Freja

Glowing, perfection, ethereal goddesses. This is how I can describe these three covers in the wedding-themed UK Vogue. Testino shot Lara, Natalia, and Freja perfectly as light, lovely ladies. Many people had a problem with Lara’s expression, but  I don’t believe she could be any more pretty and fare-skinned and soft. The three do have this sort of dewy complexion about them that is rather perfect.

V #70: Britney Spears

Cute, sexy, and sweet. Mario Testino captures Britney Spears for the March issue of V Magazine. The cat cover concerns me a bit and the styling of the shoot could have been better, but Britney looks absolutely happy, pretty, and seductive; just how we like her. Doesn’t that lacey Dolce & Gabbana look absolutely sweet on her?
