Christmas gift: Taschen Kate Moss By Mario Testino, £45
Perfect book for any fashion lover, the book follows the journey from early days backstage at the shows to behind-the-scenes glimpses of the ground-breaking editorials they continue to produce for the world’s most respected magazines.
Many photographs have been chosen from Testino’s private archive and are published here for the first time. This book is Mario’s personal homage to his greatest muse: a young girl that captured his heart and eye with her beauty, humor and spirit, and whose image in his photographs has captured imaginations the world over.
