Diana, Princess of Wales by Mario Testino
I decided to research Mario Testino after various classmates completed a blog using his work. When I looked on his website there were many different portraits of celebrities. I found a folder that had various pictures of the royal family and this one stuck out to me the most. It wasn't posed it wasn't over the top glamour or high fashion, it was simple and very beautiful. This picture captures the very essence of Princess Diana in being that she was very simple but yet something is bold and chic about her. She wasn't an in-your-face royal she was a commoner who leveled with the common people. The other pictures (including Prince William and Kate Middletons wedding photo) were more posed and showed their riches. Where as this is simple and elegant without trying to hard.
