In Your Face with Mario Testino @ the MFA Boston

by bostonianbrunette

Last night we attended the preview party for an upcoming exhibit at the Museum of Fine Arts, by Mario Testino. This is the first major US exhibition of photographs by Testino, who has captured countless iconic images for Vogue and Vanity Fair.

‘In Your Face’ features images of models and celebrities – from Kate Moss and Gwyneth Paltrow to Gisele Bündchen and Patriots Quarterback Tom Brady.  British Royal Portraits reveals Testino’s relationship with the British Royal Family including engagement portraits of Prince William and Kate Middleton.

This is a beautiful exhibit, featuring countless photographs of well-known people. We weren’t supposed to take pictures….but I didn’t listen. Gisele, Anna Wintour, Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio – so many people showed up – it was a full house.

I happened to bump into Gisele (love when that happens), and many other models.

The champagne was flowing, the food was scrumptious (I was so focused on the photos that I completely forgot to take pictures of it), and the models were gorgeous.

I highly recommend stopping by – a wonderful way to spend an afternoon meandering throughout the exhibit – the artwork is captivating.
