Testino Lets Us In
This month fashion photographer Mario Testino debuts his latest book “Let Me In!” featuring a collection of his personal archives throughout the years of taking pictures of models, celebrities and well, beautiful people.
A behind the scenes look at some of the most glamorous parties, red carpet events and photo hoots, even these “outtakes” are more glamorous and even more intriguing than what’s published. A touching shot of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony actually makes you wonder if perhaps her love truly doesn’t cost a thing. And the shot of Gwenyth and Madonna puts to rest all those catty gossip tales we’ve feasted on.
In the end, we are all voyeurs- and Testino knows it. He cunningly includes cover girl Demi Moore in nothing but her birthday suit canoodling with her hubby Ashton Kutcher at home. If that’s not enough of a draw, don’t know what is.
Final Word: An absolute must-have for your coffee table book collection, you could wait and score a copy at the highly anticipated Taschen store in SoHo this spring or right away at www.taschen.com.
