We gave it a B

For faithful magazine readers, most of the images here are familiar: a fresh-faced Princess Diana, radiant in natural light; Gwyneth channeling Grace Kelly in a white frock; a brunette Cameron slyly flashing her butt crack. And though the photographs of A-listers, supermodels, and royalty are indeed fetching, one can’t help wishing that Testino had included more of his personal work, images that capture celebrities less as icon and more as human. Those pics — including Janet Jackson dropping trou and an unabashedly silly Jagger family portrait — offer a glimpse of the glitterati, unguarded.
