On the eve of the Oscars, PC Valmorbida and Jared Najjar's PRISM gallery hosted an exclusive opening preview for Mario Testino, the eponymous exhibition by the world famous fashion photographer now on display. The Sunset Strip gallery was swarming with models, artists, designers, actors and an overall exceptionally good-looking crowd for the event, later followed by a wild after party co-hosted by Gisele Bundchen at the Fleur de Lys mansion in Beverly Hills. Mario Testino should seriously come to town more often because even by L.A. standards, the night was quite a spectacle with supermodels everywhere (kiss, kiss Karolina and Naomi!) and lots of getting down on the dance floor. Take a look and see for yourself. [All photos by David X Prutting / BFA]
