The new tome is being released to mark Testino’s first exhibition in China (and presumably aimed at a wealthy Chinese audience).
It features a selection of the photographer’s studio work, as well as examples of ‘candid shots’ such as Gwyneth Paltrow clutching a freshly won Oscar and, oddly, ‘a fur-cloaked Jennifer Lopez atop a commode’.
Limited to just 1500 copes, each signed by Testino, the book is available in pink purple or green.
And not only is each copy delivered in an injection-moulded plastic box, but it they will also feature a lenticular cover portrait of Lady Gaga.
Mario Testino is published by Taschen priced at £450.
