Mario Testino: SIR (Multilingual Edition) Reviews
I honestly just love walking around campus with this. If you know and love Mario testino, you'll love it
I enjoyed it more than other books of his I have purchased over the years and at $60, seemed worth it, there's no particular organization to the photos but there are no women in the book which is after all called "Sir." Think it's timely with skin amply sprinkled throughout so thanks for that.
Very fast! Good choice.
