I was in Rome walking near Viale dei Condotti where the best fashion designers show their collection to people coming from all over the world. I saw a sign Todo o Nada – Mario Testino and I was so excited to discover his exhibition.

Mario Testino is one of the world’s most celebrated photographers. His pictures of Princess Diana and Kate Moss are amazing.

The exhibition show 54 pictures by Mario Testino which reveal two opposing directions in his work: fashion and the nude. He says:” The pictures start fully clothed and end naked. But where does fashion photography end and portraiture begin?”

“I like strong, independent women. Women who, despite their strength, never lose their femininity and who don not use their beauty as a tool. Women with personality who can reflect their own desires and ours”.

You can see the exhibition until 23 November at Palazzo Ruspoli in Rome.

On 8th September I flew back from Italy and I went straight to shoot an event for Agent Provocateur in Soho during the Vogue’s Fashion Night Out.

It was cool. A model was stripping at the window while many fake paparazzi were shooting her. Lots of people were curious to see what was happening. Lot of fun that night.

Obama was in London between 24 and 26 May and so many protests by the muslims happened in these days. American and English people were excited to see the US President on the street of London, going to Westminster Abbey, the National Gallery, Backingham Palace and the Parliament.

Tension was high for security reasons but everything was well done.
