That Girl

Kate photographed by Patirck Demarchelier

In all my years casting I rarely hung out with the models. I didn’t want to get involved in their personal lives or feel badly when they were no longer ‘right’ for the magazine or designer I was working for. Kate was my one exception. She was, and is, one of the greatest girls I have known, and not just as a model. Wickedly funny, smart, and kind, Kate made the long hours on set or backstage, bearable.

‘Kate: The Kate Moss Book’, published by Rizzoli New York, is chock-full of the best pictures from Kate’s 25 year career. When she started modeling, the supermodels (Christy, Linda, Naomi) ruled the pages and catwalks. Kate had a different look and was shorter than the ‘big’ girls at the time, but we all knew she was it. And she still is.

To Celebrate her book, Vanity Fair shot Kate for the December 2012 issue cover. The accompanying article by James Fox is very personal and gives insight into the iconic beauty we all love.

  • Read the article in Vanity Fair. Now I know why she does not give interviews. She is beautiful in photos, no doubt.

  • An exception indeed. When I received this issue of Vanity Fair in my mailbox I must say I was blown away by the great cover photo! She is so very striking and alluring! It is nice to know that she was always a pleasure to work with and be around. Thanks for sharing! Beth
