In addition to a cat-themed shoot featuring Kate Moss and Lara Stone and images of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Natalia Vodianova in heavy embellished layers, the 30 Years of Optimism editorial by Mario Testino for Love Magazine spring/summer 2012 includes several more intimate images of some of the most famous celebs.

Beyonce poses in a car with a puppy, Gwyneth Paltrow is mid-laugh fit wearing an ancient armor helmet and Karl Lagerfeld poses in his casual tuxedo in a bizarre and unexplained addition to the 30 Years of Optimism editorial in the spring edition of the British biannual magazine. Extreme close-up portraits of David Beckham and 'Ironman' Robert Downey Jr. are also included in the eclectic set of images by Mario Testino, a photographer who has undoubtedly photographed some of the most celebrated celebrity figures.
