The long awaited book created by Kate herself, alongside Creative Director Fabian Baron (also Editorial Director of Interview Magazine), her former partner Jefferson Hack (Founder of Dazed and Confused), and Jess Hallet (one of the industry’s most respected casting director’s), is available for sale today. The book acts as a retrospective of the controversy causing model and chronicles her transition from the industry’s “New It Girl” to one of the most iconic, recognized models in history.
I was not at all surprised to hear that KATE: The Kate Moss Book will have a total of eight unique covers which will be shipped to customers at random. And it only seems fitting that the eight images used for the covers were shot by some of the industry’s most well known photogs; Juergan Teller, Mario Testino, Mert & Marcus, Mario Sorrenti, Inez & Vindooh, Corinne Day and Craig McDean.
With thousands of mag covers under her belt, the ability to make a mark in the industry during the days of the glamazon “Supermodels”, campaigns for global brands like Calvin, D&G, Lonchamp, Bulgari, Chanel, Gucci; a capsule collection for TopShop, and she somehow managed to successfully bounce back from public humiliation and controversy surrounding her cocaine use. Seriously, there is nothing this chick can’t do!
Told completely through the images that the model has hand picked herself, KATE proves the influence she has had over her 25 years in fashion. Images by Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, Hedi Slimane, Arthur Elgort, David Sims, Roxanne Lowit and Terry Richardson and more are also featured in the book.
Moss is also the cover girl of this month’s Vanity Fair issue where she chats about her post Calvin campaign breakdown, break-up with Johnny Depp (aka sexiest man alive) and heroin.
Cannot wait to get my hands on my own hard copy, which I just ordered on Amazon…yay!
