what if thee mario testino was charged with photographing your wedding? over-the-top amazing or what? mr. testino did just that for kate moss. "mario has known [moss] since she was a fragile sixteen-year-old, crying her eyes out backstage at john galliano’s first paris show. in that dim, distant past, when a model’s success was judged by the number of changes she had in a show, kate had been given only one outfit and was feeling unloved. mario comforted her. 'you know, in life there’s perfume and there’s cologne,' he told her. 'cologne, you have to spray every fifteen minutes. perfume, you put a drop and it lasts a week. you’re perfume.'" ah, spoken like a true artist. it goes without saying that moss' beauty is ever lasting.
