Created by Kate Moss, in collaboration with creative director Fabien Baron, Jefferson Hack, and Jess Hallett, KATE: THE KATE MOSS BOOK (Rizzoli), is a highly personal retrospective of the iconic model’s career, tracing her evolution from “new girl with potential” to one of the most recognizable models of all time. Moss began modeling as a teenager and achieved recognition when photographs of her shot by Corinne Day appeared in British magazine The Face. Making her “waif” mark as a counterpoint to the ’90s Amazonian supermodels like Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, and Linda Evangelista, Moss has certainly stood the test of time. Throughout her career, Moss’s magic has been captured by the world’s leading photographers (like Hedi Slimane, Inez & Vinoodh, and Mario Testino), and this volume spans the entirety of her unparalleled career, from model to fashion designer, and muse to icon. Told through images that Moss has personally selected, KATE shows the influence of her collaborations with top photographers and artists over the last two decades, and clearly demonstrates why her career has had, and continues to have, such incredible longevity. KATE: THE KATE MOSS BOOK is available now.
