December 23rd: Kate Durbin


Marking her thirtieth British Vogue cover, supermodel Kate Moss takes over the September issue of Vogue UK with a mix of rock ’n roll flair and classic elegance. Lensed by Patrick Demarchelier, Kate shines bright in “The Moss Factor.”

Willy Vanderperre captures a sultry Kate Moss for the cover shoot of April’s Vogue UK. Styled by Miranda Almond in flirty and elegant looks, the British supermodel is a stiletto-wearing vixen in “Basic Instinct.”

Captured by Peter Lindbergh, supermodel Kate Moss falls easily into the role of seductress for an all black-and-white story in the latest Harper’s Bazaar US. After having some sexy fun with male models Ash Stymest and Callum Wilson, Kate luxuriates in sultry yet elegant looks pulled by George Cortina.

After working eight consecutive seasons with Longchamp, supermodel Kate Moss collaborates with the French label for a handbag collection. Captured by David Sims, Kate stars in the black-and-white campaign shot in Elsa, Paris.

In V Magazine’s editorial “Kate & The Gypsies,” stylist Karen Langley and photographer Iain McKell have the opportunity to work with the legendary Kate Moss. Dressed down, but still wearing the best from labels like John Galliano and Dsquared², this supermodel shines regardless of her surroundings.

Stylist Simon Robins proves he is not afraid of a little glam and sparkle as he adorns Vogue Russia cover girl, Kate Moss, in glittery pieces by Gucci, Balmain and Alexander McQueen. Under the well-trained lens of Sølve Sundsbø, Kate looks quite the part of a seductive vamp with her smoky cat eyes and intense gaze. Me-ow!

Kate gets clad in skin-tight, black leather for the September issue of Vogue Paris. Lensed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, the British supermodel delivers editorial gold in rebellious ensembles courtesy of fashion editor Emmanuelle Alt that feature the work of DSquared, Isabel Marant, Chanel and more.

We’ve already seen Kate Moss’ October cover for French Vogue, and now it’s time to get a look at the shoot in its entirety. The British supermodel was captured by Inez and Vinoodh in an all black-and-white studio shoot which features a combination of elegant and hard-edged looks as styled by Emmanuelle Alt. Entitled “Kate Moss,” the spread only reaffirms Kate’s status as one fashion’s most iconic faces.
