What's the secret to looking great in a photograph? Over to Mario Testino: “If I know I am going to have my picture taken, I will use the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask – it lifts the face. But to me, picture perfect is a positive attitude. Some people look their best acting cool; I look better with a smile. Finally, bend forward so your stomach goes back, it makes the body look really good!”
Alta Moda by Mario Testino(MATE)
Your coffee table will be a more stylish place with Mario Testino's latest tome. Alta Moda is an equisite homage to the people of his native Peru, and is available exclusively at NET-A-PORTER. The book includes an introduction by Testino's friend, American Vogue's Hamish Bowles, who reveals the respectful way that Testino has merged his fashion-sensitive vision with this fascinating culture.
