Fashion Snapper- Mario Testino

In celebration of one of fashion’s most sought-after snappers, Mario Testino’s 60th birthday, I thought I would share some of his amazing work as a fashion photographer.

Mario Testino began his career by selling portfolios for 25 pounds in London to wannabe models. Today he is best known for his highly polished, strikingly bright ad campaigns and his exquisitely styled photographs of the couture scene all which possess a deceptive air of insouciance.

Testino has shot the likes of Madonna for Versace as well as the late Princess Diana for her famous Vanity Fair cover in 1997.

His unerring ability to take beautiful pictures which sell clothes stems his popularity with designers and fashion editors.

Close to home, Mario Testino most recently shot the Vogue Australia November Issue cover featuring Blake Lively:

Mario Testino has a perpetual connection with the best fashion supermodels, working alongside Kate Moss, Cara Delevigne and Miranda Kerr for campaigns.

Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne are two of the most famous faces in the world of modelling but have never been shot together, until this year. Burberry released the campaign of the two for the My Burberry fragrance last month in which is another archive in Mario Testino’s career.

Another defining moment in Testino’s career was the release of the book  “Kate Moss by Mario Testino”

A photographer’s tribute to his greatest muse

Mario Testino is recognized as the ultimate fashion photographer of his generation but his pictures of Kate Moss transcend fashion. The consequence of two decades of extraordinary friendship, and phenomenal glamor, this iconic collaboration is an intimate insight into the lives and minds of two of the world’s definitive style leaders.

It follow’s the journey of one of fashion’s most creative collaborations, from early days backstage at the shows to behind-the-scenes glimpses of the ground-breaking editorials they continue to produce for the world’s most respected magazines.

To top of his amazing career Mario Testino prevailed the “In Your Face” exhibition first shown in Boston 2012 and most recently in SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL. The exhibition gives the public an inside look at some of today’s most elusive and exclusive subjects through the lens of renowned celebrity photographer and Vogue and Vanity Fair contributor Mario Testino. Testino’s first US exhibition represents the brilliant range and quality of his thirty-year career and includes striking, larger-than-life images of international superstars such as models Kate Moss, Stephanie Seymour, and Gisele Bündchen, actors Brad Pitt, Nicole Kidman, and Gwyneth Paltrow, musicians Mick Jagger, Madonna, and Lady Gaga, and athletes David Beckham and New England’s own Tom Brady.

Lastly I would like to wish this amazing artist a big Happy Birthday, with many more defining moments still left to come in fashion photography from this man.

This weekend I took to this trend with my outfit consisting of the bright orange colour fashion must have this spring wearing the Babydoll Maxi dress from Hello Molly Fashion.

The fiery hue has been spotted all over spring 2014 ready to wear shows, making its way from lips to clothes, bags and shoes. With the addictive television series Orange Is The New Black not even realising they were predicting a major colour moment for this seasons fashion trends.

Dare Hair

Bold hair colours is a new trend that is sticking around this spring with celebrities from Kylie Jenner to Nicole Richie daring to stand out. I completed my weekend look with a pastel blue toned hair colour that complemented the orange dress to my surprise. New brands have taken advantage of this array of colours on the top of our heads with Nak hair for the brave and permanent colour and Dare Hair Colour around for a good time not a long time with wash out hair coloured products.

The Myer SS15 Launch injected fun with coloured hair by Kevin Murphy to set the ice cream pop tone with high-profile names providing a star-studded boost to the show, which had models stomping down the catwalk with candy-coloured hair.
