Supermodels MATE For Life, And More Of The Day’s Top Stories

-------

Top models Karlie Kloss, Lily Donaldson, Constance Jablonski, Isabeli Fontana, Izabel Goulart, and Edita Vilkeviciute were among the guests who flocked to Peru to celebrate the opening of Mario Testino’s Asociación Mario Testino—a.k.a. MATE—a non-profit organization promoting Peruvian art. While Testino’s work will be on permanent display, an inaugural exhibition will open to the public on July 17. [MATE]

When supermodel Doutzen Kroes saw the recent cover of Vogue China, she was surprised at what she saw. The magazine had photoshopped her image so that she looked as though she only had one leg. “I think photoshopping is OK until something like that happens,” she said. “You don’t want to lose one of your limbs.” Agreed.

Raf Simons’ Couture debut at Christian Dior had everybody talking. The floral arrangements were just as head-turning as the clothes. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the million-flower setup of peonies, goldenrod, dahlias, and more, which were cut and arranged to decorate five salons. [Telegraph]

The men of Brazil are in for a treat. Gucci is opening a men’s store in São Paulo on July 21. The 3,600-square-foot shop will be Gucci’s sixth men’s-only outpost and will include a full range of menswear, accessories, and luggage, as well as a made-to-measure tailoring program. [WWD]

Taylor Swift just gave Lady Gaga a run for her money—literally. The country pop singer has taken reign as the highest-earning star under 30 years old, taking in an impressive $57 million. Gaga’s earnings dropped from $90 million to $52 million (still not too shabby), landing her the fourth spot on the list, along with Adele, Rihanna, Katy Perry, and Kristen Stewart. [Vogue U.K.]

The Full Testino, Just A Click Away

-------

Well worth a few minutes of your clicking this afternoon: the new and improved MarioTestino.com, which launched today in a revamped version spearheaded by creative agency King & Partners. The site features a deep archive of vintage Testino work searchable by publication, brand, or type, as well as Testino films, videos of gallery exhibitions featuring his work worldwide, publications, collaborations, and information about MATE, the nonprofit Testino established in his native Peru to provide support to Peruvian artists. While those require a little digging in, there are more visceral pleasures to be had, too—key among them, the wealth of vintage gold, like videos of Testino on set and soon-to-be-classic shots of some of his great muses, like this one of Kate Moss.
