GENIUS: Anna Wintour Requests Mario Testino To Shoot Her Passport Photo

Let’s face it, who hasn’t found themself in the queue for airport security, about to go on holiday with your pals and in bent-over-double-hysterics comparing your passport photos? Think dodgy facial expressions, hair that is by no means behaving and the giant boil that inconveniently coincided with the need for a new passport snap. We’ve all been there - unless you're the editor of US Vogue, that is...

Whilst you're more likely to spot fashion photographer Mario Testino’s beautiful images gracing the pages of the world’s top fashion magazines, the much acclaimed photographer has revealed one of his roles includes taking passport photos! For Anna Wintour! In a truly awesome interview with The Guardian Testino says, 'Every year I go to photograph her for the Met Ball – her, her kids,' before going on to say that he was then asked to take pictures of the editor and her son for their passports. Fabulous or what?

It’s an altogether different passport-photo approach to that of supermodel Kate Moss who was recently spotted having her snap taken in a Snappy Snaps store in London. Working a black leather jacket and her signature pout, Mossy could've been one of us (ish). Perhaps she'll be giving Mario a call next time...
