In September, Kate Moss ,a girl who needs no introduction, is celebrating 25 years of career. On this occasion,The Edit, the magazine of the online retailer Net-A-Porter, devoted to her its cover and an editorial shoot, in which Kate appears in all her glory. The article also discusses the fact that Christie’s holds a retrospective and an auction of works devoted to the supermodel.
” It is hard to believe it has been 25 years since the phenomenon that is Kate Moss burst onto the fashion scene. Since that fairy-tale moment, when the 14-year-old British beauty was spotted by Storm Models’ Sarah Doukas in JFK Airport, we have been captivated by her every turn. Whether dancing with choreographer Michael Clark for Alexander McQueen, stepping out with Johnny Depp or sitting for Lucian Freud, she has always enthralled, seeming somehow both everyday yet totally out of this world.
Photographers and artists who have captured her image over the years say it is her strong sense of self that makes her the perfect subject. So on the eve of a landmark Christie’s auction of Moss-inspired art, we invited artist Mat Collishaw to create a special cover story with the supermodel.
We also look back at Moss’ much admired style, take inspiration from her iconic looks, and talk to her long-time collaborators – from Charlotte Tilbury to Nick Knight – to discover the secrets of fashion’s most enduring muse. ” – Lucy Yeomans, Editor-In-Chief
