Naomi on hand for close pal Mario at 'Obsessed' launch

3 JULY 2008
Celebrity snapper Mario Testino was flanked, appropriately, by one of the world's best known models as his latest exhibition opened in London on Wednesday. The acclaimed photographer enveloped catwalk beauty Naomi Campbell in an affectionate hug as she joined a roll call of celebs turning out in support of Mario's new venture.

The exhibition, entitled 'Obsessed By You', showcases a collection of 32 shots taken over the course of the Peruvian's phenomenally successful career.

A list guests including Claudia Schiffer and David Furnish - who seemed particularly taken by a photo of his parter Elton John with Elizabeth Hurley perched atop his piano - were able to purchase the prints from a starting price of 15,000.

Highlights of the collection include stunning images of London by night, a photo of Kate Moss preparing to apply her own lipstick, and a shot of Hollywood starlet Lindsay Lohan floating on a stack of inflatables in an LA swimming pool.

'Obsessed By You', runs at the Phillips De Pury Gallery until July26.
