mario testino

I was flipping through the newspaper the other day. That is a complete lie in an attempt to sound intellectual. Anyway I was flipping through, sorry I meant the Encyclopedia, when I stumbled across this cheese ball photo of Prince William and his soon-to-be-royal-wifey, Kate Middleton.

Definition of cheese

To my astonishment, I found out that this nice little family portrait was shot by none other than the Mario Testino. Hit the breaks. Yes, that's the one. The one that shoots Kate Moss. The one that is BFF's with Anna Wintour (oh whoops, I thought I was talking about me). The one that has released a million coffee table fashion photography books. The one who introduced me to Kate Moss. Yes, that's "the one." 

Kate Moss. I don't know where to begin. First of all, can I just say how hard it is to write a serious blog when you have Prince William and Kate Middleton smiling at you like the world is about to end and they're about to eat your family.

I don't know what it is about Kate Moss, but she is up there with my number one idols (those of which include Nigella Lawson and Britney Spears). Her partnership with Mario Testino brought me so much joy - I just wanted to share a few shots with you.

And without further....ado (is that how you spell it?), I give you my all time personal favourite (has been my computer and phone background for 2 years):

"What people say isn't going to stop me. I have to do things for myself."

Don't ask why. Just sit there and bask in the glory that is Kate Moss. Mario Testino, you are a genius. Do you have any sons my age? I swear to God, I will respect him and not use him for his father's photograph collection. 

Good night everyone!
