If you're going to the Isabella Blow exhibit at Rockefeller Plaza don't expect to see any photographs from Mario Testino.
Originally, the famed photographer agreed to donate a photo to the celebratory exhibit, but suddenly changed his mind.
A source explains:
"So many photographers gladly supplied their work. But just a few weeks before, they got a message saying, 'Mario's season is fully booked, making it impossible for him to allocate any extra time.' He was always complaining how the fashion world turned its back on Issie, but he's just like everyone else."
Testino's rep was quick to refute the claim saying the photographer happily supplied an image to Blow's widower Detmar Blow to use on the sleeve of his book Blow by Blow.
The rep continued:
"When Mario's studio was approached to donate a print for the exhibition, we were not able to produce one 'of exhibition quality' at such short notice."
Considering it was for an exhibit at Anthropologie, we're sure they would have gladly accepted any quality.
