Mario Testino at the MFA

The fashion magazine nerd in me was salivating last night at the Mario Testino exhibit that is currently on display at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.  Called "In Your Face," the glossy, irreverent, and beautiful show is a sort of who's who in fashion and popular culture.  (As a nice companion to the exhibit, there is also a room full of his British Royal Portraits on the other side of the museum.)  Seeing "In Your Face" last night really reignited my fascination with Kate Moss, a frequent muse of Testino's.  What was really cool about the exhibit though is the sheer size of the prints, blown up to be larger than life.  It almost felt as if you were walking through a magazine.  And isn't that every girl's dream?  Here are some of my favorites.
