Snapshot, 2006: A mirror moment with Kate Moss

You can just imagine Mario Testino popping into the cloakroom to wash his hands and discovering Kate Moss sitting on the sink, applying lipstick. Well, you can if you try really hard. If your imagination fails you, no need to worry, because the photographer just happened to have his camera ready...

But why is Kate wearing a mask? And whose bathroom is it? No matter – if you’re the successful bidder when a copy of the photo 'Kate Moss, London, 2006' by Mario Testino is auctioned on 28 April 2014 by Phillips in New York, you can spend a lifetime making up stories around it. The estimate for the signed and numbered chromogenic print is 3,000 to 5,000 U.S. dollars.
