The Kate Moss Book: 8 Covers

 The Kate Moss Book: 8 Covers

I  have a Kate Moss book, it’s softcover and was purchased at a Brooklyn stoop sale for a few dollars many years ago. It’s called Kate: The Kate Moss Book (which now I’m seeing on Amazon has some decent worth!), but now there is a new and different one, called The Kate Moss Book, published by Rizzoli and available for pre-order for $52.47 on Amazon.

It’s basically a book of Kate Moss photos, and is offered with eight different covers, shot by Mario Testino, Corinne Day, Inez & Vinoodh, Craig McDean, Mert & Marcus, David Sims, Mario Sorrenti, and Juergen Teller. FYI: they will be shipped at random–no picking allowed!  See the other seven covers on the next page.

P.S. Now that I’ve pulled my Kate Moss book out, I’m reminded it  includes a forward written by Moss in 1995, in which she writes about being labeled “viciously by the majority of the media.” She ends by saying she’s off to “eat a massive steak and loads of very fattening potatoes, with loads of butter.” All of which of course refer to the insane beating she took as the face of “Heroin Chic.” Her ability to come out of that pile on says a lot about her survival skills, which in part must have contributed to the unusually long length of her career.

Kristen Stewart Cover By Mario Testino Vanity Fair July 2012

Kiristen Stewart graces the cover of Vanity Fair, shot by  Mario Testino for the July 2012 issue. Stunning imagery of the outspoken actress whose star we hope has just begun to shine :

“I have been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph,” Kristen Stewart tells Vanity Fair contributing editor Ingrid Sischy in July’s cover story. “I get some serious shit about it. I’m not embarrassed about it. I’m proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, What an actress! What a faker! That thought embarrasses me so much that I look like shit in half my photos, and I don’t give a fuck. What matters to me is that the people in the room leave and say, ‘She was cool. She had a good time. She was honest.’ I don’t care about the voracious, starving shit eaters who want to turn truth into shit. Not that you can say that in Vanity Fair!”

Introducing MarioTestino.com

mario testino1

Looking at Mario Testino’s works make me want to shimmy around with maracas in hand because he truly knows how to capture the celebration of fashion. Maybe its his million dollar smile mystique, the vibrancy of colors equivalent to a toucan’s beak, or that the most beautiful and the most talented seemed to unleash their best before hiscamera. Whatever it is, having it all personally curated and compiled by the photographer himself in one website is something to be grateful for on this dreary Monday in the city.See a little peek on the flip via MarioTestino.com-Rika N.

 Hp11 421x540 Editorial: Vogue UK May 2012 By Mario Testiono

Fashion the way we see it should always provide inspiration. The constant emphasis on reality and practicality while necessary is not–at least for yours truly–what captivates the heart.  A beautful example is this stunning editorial shot by Mario Testino for Vogue U.K. Taking color , texture and styling to such levels that have nothing to do with reality one might say, but the true style lovers know that it does. To each his own. See more on the next page via.

Highsnobette-JLO Vmag

As a sexy boxer, Jennifer Lopez graces the cover of  V magazine, styled by Carine Roitfeld and photographed by Mario Testino. In her interview  she candidly hints to the toughness needed to stay the course and beat the odds:

Lopez posed for a boxer-fighter-survivor photo shoot with Mario Testino for this magazine— a theme symbolic of her career of late. “I can take a lot of punches and still keep going,” she says. “I’ve been trained like a boxer to go 15 rounds.”

LFW: Tom Ford Spring 2012 Backstage Sneak Peek Images

TomFordBackstage LFW: Tom Ford Spring 2012 Backstage Sneak Peek Images

This image is going viral on all the fashion sites–it’s a backstage shot taken at Tom Ford’s London Fashion week show, taken by runway model Candice Swanepoel, who Twittered it (and indeed it is still there on her page as I type this). This is a big deal because Ford has set himself up as the anti-internet designer who wants nothing to do with anything instantaneous and is very protective when it comes to images being taken at his shows. Then again, if no attempt is being made to remove the image one has to wonder if its leak wasn’t given the downlow okay.

On the next page, see Swanepoel in a Tom Ford black lace dress she recently wore to an event honoring Mario Testino. Next to her in the first image is model Rosie Huntington wearing Burberry.

LaraStoneVMagazine 540x392 Lara Stone As Elizabeth Taylor For V Magazine

It’s Lara Stone for V Magazine’s “Heroes” issue, worked on by Mario Testino and Carine Roitfeld, who used Elizabeth Taylor as the inspiration for a 72-page editorial. The images here and the ones of Stone on the next page really are lovely. The eyebrows are fantastic of course but so is her faded ginger hair, which matches her lipstick oh so perfectly, plus the diamonds and the lighting, and so on and so forth. Via Stylist.

KirstenDunst5 Kirsten Dunst on Cover of V Magazine

The somewhat enigmatic Kirsten Dunst is featured on the cover of V Magazine, issue No. 64.  She is photographed by Mario Testino, who does an excellent job capturing her cool allure, which has made her so appealing to U.S. directors seeking a little more heft than just another blonde. In the article, KD chats about her friendship with the women behind Rodarte, as well as Takashi Murakami.

Images of the cover shot, plus the rest of the pages from the editorial after the flip.
