Kate Winslet has been on camera, naked more than once. This time it’s going to be different. The world renowned photographer, Mario Testino is behind the nude photos for the “Todo o Nada” exhibit that will open in Rome in July.
“You know that his biggest strength without fail is making women look beautiful,” she said at the El Museo del Barrio gala Thursday evening in New York City, as she presented the celebrity favorite with an award honoring his career. “When Mario turns to you and says, ‘It’s beautiful, but I think it would work better naked, no?’ How can one refuse? No matter what insecurities about oneself a subject may have, Mario makes them go away like a magician.. One moment you are in the hair and makeup chair fully clothed and wishing you had smoother skin, longer legs and smaller feet and then Mario comes in and in that charming way he takes you by the hand and says, ‘Don’t worry it’s going to be amazing.’”
“I said to her, I want you to pose nude for this exhibition. And she was like, ‘Oh, OK, Mario.’ She said yes right away.” That didn’t come as a surprise to Testino. “Most of them I think trust me. I would never let them down.”
Wow. This man must have magic. If the ladies are that willing to strip down…. I am impressed. This exhibit it going to be something else! Stay tuned for the photos!
