Mario Testino Shoots a Dramatic Kate Moss for Vogue Spain

Now these are some overly dramatic images starring Kate Moss, photographed by Mario Testino. "Styled by Sarajane Hoare, the British beauty poses alongside Spanish matador José Mari Manzanares in some of the season’s most opulent looks. Designs from the likes of Christian Dior, Alexis Mabille, Dolce & Gabbana and Lanvin are complemented by the glam touch of hair stylist Sam McKnight and makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury."














I'm personally never quite sure what to make of these kinds of fashion images. I can appreciate the clothing and the photography, but the way that the posing and styling is done I find strange. No one ever really dresses like this. I can appreciate the art, but these clothes are actually on sale. Where do people wear them? Who buys them? Whatever the case, the images are fun to look at.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe this type of fashion is couture and it's meant to trickle down and influence other, more casual fashions in the coming season.

People DO actually dress like this. You just have to be part of that exclusive world. Have a look at this video from my blog if you are really interested in who buys this stuff and for how much. Sometimes it is to. inspire other collections (Devil Wears Prada speech) other times its considered art and purchased for that reason. Travel to a very wealthy area with people from other countries. These extremely rich men dress their women like this frequently.

Does anyone know if it was done with film or digital, because it seems to have a slight grain and the dynamic range of film, but then again, anything can be simulated these days.

 yeah i was just about to ask the same question, anyone find a behind the scene video for this?

Mario Testino has always been one of the many photographers that I look up to, the above is more of the reasons why.
