If you’ve ever walked down the magazine aisle of CVS, then you have seen at least one (probably more) of Mario Testino’s lustrous photographs on the cover of Vogue or Vanity Fair.
He’s the world-renowned fashion photographer behind the lens of hundreds of iconic photographs, ranging from rock stars to royalty.
For Testino’s first stateside exhibition, his work—considered the physical representation of all things high fashion—will be coming to the worst-dressed city in America.
Wipe that puzzled look off your face: I’m talking about Boston.
Beginning Sunday, October 21, the Museum of Fine Arts will be showing two exhibits featuring Testino’s famous portraits.
The first, aptly named “In Your Face,” will be running through February 3 and comprises 125 of the photographer’s favorite pieces spanning his 30-year career. Expect a wide range of intimate and provocative images of some of Testino’s most famous subjects; Kate Moss, Mick Jagger, and Lady Gaga included. The accompanying exhibit, “British Royal Portraits,” will feature never-before seen images of the royal family (like Prince William and Kate Middleton’s engagement), and will be shown through June 16, 2013.
Testino’s photographs continue to be VIP passes for the masses. So pinkies up, Boston, and get drunk on fabulousness at the MFA.
Oh and if you dare show up in sweatpants and Uggs, I will find you. And I will hurt you.
