Draped in a luxuriant and vibrant red fur, supermodel Carmen Kass confronts the camera impassively. Her perfect teeth framed by impossibly glossy red lips and nails, the model's direct and fearless gaze reveals the delicate greens, blues and even violets of her eyes in stunning detail. Aloof and untouchable, 'Carmen Kass, Los Angeles, 2009' is a distinctly Testino image of contemporary female beauty, defiant and fierce.

'Carmen Kass, Los Angeles, 2009' was released on the occasion of his major retrospective at the MFA in Boston, 2012.
Mario Testino is best known for his highly polished, exotically bright advertising campaigns and his exquisitely styled photographs of the couture scene. He often sets up highly staged environments and captures arresting and magical images in the off-guard moments. Instantly recognisable for the casual elegance and visual opulence of his images, Testino's photographs reveal alluring glimpses of his high-fashion world and simultaneously mythologize it.
