Personally selected by Princess Diana for her portrait, credited with turning Gisele Bundchen into a supermodel, and working alongside Carine Roitfeld helped turning Gucci into an advertising powerhouse, Mario Testino has become one the fashion industry’s most celebrated photographers. And now he has a new project to cement his iconic status.
Launched earlier this year after Mario Testino snapped Kate Moss naked except for a white robe and towel after a photoshoot, the photographer has launched a new set of portraits entitled ’The Towel Series’ on instagram. Since embracing social media enthusiastically, the Vogue favourite has regularly continued to open up the exclusive world of fashion and presented it in a style that is quite the departure from his typical high gloss production.
After the Moss photo, Testino began shooting others in similar states of nakedness– Kate Upton, Candice Swanepoel, Miley Cyrus, and Joan Smalls just to name a few. But while the girls have been grabbing the headlines and likes for the Instagram-exclusive project, the boys like David Gandy, Travis Smith, Sean O’Pry, Justin Bieber, Francisco Lachowski and Ton Heukelw have somehow been completely forgotten about… Could you forget any of them?
