Vogue UK enlists Mario Testino to shoot the magazine’s first issue with 3 different covers. Natalia Vodianova, Lara Stone and , Freja Beha Erichsen grace the triple covers in frilly white dresses and soft pink makeup, but do these images conjure images of romantic revelry, or watered down beauty?


Mario Testino

Photographer/Other credits: Model

Country of origin: Peru

One of fashion's most sought-after snappers, Mario Testino was born in 1954 in Lima, Peru. He came to London in 1976, took a flat in an abandoned hospital near Trafalgar Square, and began selling portfolios (for £25, including hair and make-up) to wannabe models. Today he is best known for his highly polished, exotically bright ad campaigns and his exquisitely styled photographs of the couture scene all of which carry a deceptive air of nonchalance. Now at the top of his profession, Testino has shot Madonna for Versace as well as photographing the late Diana, Princess of Wales for her famous Vanity Fair cover in 1997. His popularity with designers and fashion editors stems as much from his professionalism and good nature as his unerring ability to take beautiful pictures which sell clothes.
