About the book

Created by Kate Moss herself, in collaboration with creative director Fabien Baron, Jess Hallett, and Jefferson Hack, this book is a highly personal retrospective of Kate Moss's career, tracing her evolution from `new girl with potential` to one of the most iconic models of all time. KATE: The Kate Moss Book will be released with eight unique covers, shot by Mario Testino, Corinne Day, Inez & Vinoodh, Craig McDean, Mert & Marcus, David Sims, Mario Sorrenti, and Juergen Teller and will be shipped to customers at random. Kate Moss began modeling as a teenager and achieved recognition when photographs of her shot by Corinne Day appeared in British magazine `The Face.` She made her so-called `waif` mark as a counterpoint in the 90s to then-dominant, Amazonian supermodels like Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, and Linda Evangelista, and, with countless international magazine covers and fashion features, and campaigns for brands including Calvin Klein, Chanel, Bulgari, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, and Longchamp, has remained one of fashion's most enduring and influential forces. Moss's magic has been captured by the world's leading photographers, 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. Photography by Arthur Elgort, Corinne Day, Craig McDean, David Sims, Hedi Slimane, Inez & Vinoodh, Juergen Teller, Mario Sorrenti, Mario Testino, Mert & Marcus, Nick Knight, Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, Roxanne Lowit, Steven Klein, Terry Richardson and others Including many 'never-before-seen' images from her own archives and those of the illustrious photographers with whom she has worked, KATE is a must-have for anyone interested in one of the most iconic models in the history of fashion media and modern culture.

Reviews

"Created by Kate Moss herself, in collaboration with creative director Fabien Baron, Jess Hallett, and Jefferson Hack, this book is a highly personal retrospective of Kate Moss's career, tracing her evolution from "new girl with potential" to one of the most iconic models of all time." ~ Highsnobiety.com "...the Rizzoli book promises an intimate look into into fashion's leading lady. Indeed her career has been so expansive it's a wonder they could fit it all into one edition. Not just a model, she has also dabbled in the world of fashion design, and the book encompasses all these things and more, as well as personal images belonging to Moss herself... For a Kate Moss fan, this book really is a must-have." ~ dualshow.com "While fashion has an infamously short memory, the book will make sure no one ever forgets Kate." ~ Modern Luxury Dallas "...the book is a highly personal retrospective of her career, following her trajectory from schoolgirl waif to one of our eras most recognizable and iconic faces." ~AnOther Magazine " Kate: The Kate Moss Book is the most exhaustive and compelling pictorial autobiography this reviewer has ever had the pleasure of reading. The format of the book is set up to reveal what lies beyond and beneath the two-dimensional image of one of the most ubiquitous faces and icons of the latter 20th century. Ms. Moss comes across as honest, quite devoted to her craft, and genuinely lovable in a business whose members it is so easy to loathe. There is no stone left unturned in these pages. She is every woman, every girl, every tomboy, and every sex siren loved by the camera. So many more wildly talented photographers make Kate: The Kate Moss Book the quintessential depiction of one of the most enduring personalities of fashion. The images are beyond expectation and the sheer stature of the book does everything to solidify Ms. Moss' place in fashion's hall of fame. I have never been a fan but am now totally won over by the unbelievable assemblage presented in this homage and visual history of Kate Moss. This is a book that equals its subject matter in quality and grandiosity." ~Jeffrey Felner, NY Journal of books "I can't wait to peruse the pages of this book; I'll be in awe of all the iconic imagery. This will be a great addition to my collection." ~Melissa Magsaysay, Angeleno Magazine "...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. Told through images that Moss personally selected, Kate shows the influence of her collaborations with top photographers and artists over the last two decades..." ~Life + Times " The Kate Moss Book celebrates the supermodel's decades-long reign, from fresh-faced teen to grunge goddess to all-around glam icon." ~ New York Post

Kate Moss Biography

Katherine Ann Moss (born 16 January 1974) is a British model and businesswoman. Arriving at the end of the "supermodel era", Moss rose to fame in the early 1990s as part of the heroin chic fashion trend. Her collaborations with Calvin Klein brought her to fashion icon status. She is known for her waifish figure, and role in size zero fashion. Moss has had her own clothing range, has been involved in musical projects, and is also a contributing fashion editor for British Vogue. In 2012, she came second on the Forbes top-earning models list, with estimated earnings of $9.2 million in one year. The accolades she has received for modelling include the 2013 British Fashion Awards acknowledging her contribution to fashion over 25 years, while Time named her one of the world's 100 most influential people in 2007.A subject of media scrutiny due to her partying lifestyle, Moss was involved in a drug use scandal in September 2005, which led to her being dropped from fashion campaigns. She was cleared of charges and soon resumed modelling. She has inspired cultural depictions including a £1.5m ($2.8m) 18 carat gold statue of her, sculpted in 2008 for a British Museum exhibition.

Early life

Moss was born on 16 January 1974 in Croydon, Greater London, the daughter of Linda Rosina Moss (née Shepherd), a barmaid, and Peter Edward Moss, an airline employee, and raised in the Addiscombe and Sanderstead areas of the borough. She has a younger brother, Nick, and a half-sister named Lottie (Charlotte). Moss's parents divorced when she was 13. She attended Ridgeway Primary School and Riddlesdown High School (now Riddlesdown Collegiate) in Purley. She worked several local retail jobs in her early teens.

Career

Beginnings and "heroin chic" fashion

Moss was recruited as a model in 1988 at age 14 by Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Management, at JFK Airport in New York, after a holiday in The Bahamas. Corinne Day shot black-and-white photographs of her, styled by Melanie Ward, for The Face when she was 16, in a shoot titled "The 3rd Summer of Love". Moss was presented as a young unknown, and Day described the pictures as "dirty realism" or "grunge".Moss then featured in the Levi's campaign 'Levi's for Girls', with great success, set up by The Design Corporation and again shot by Corinne Day. A further shoot followed for The Face, by Tony Briggs, entitled "Haute Coiffure", Moss went on to become the "anti-supermodel" of the 1990s in contrast to the models of the moment, such as Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell, who were known for curvaceous and tall figures. Moss featured in the fashion look heroin chic in 1996 (which prompted speculation over her weight) with a campaign for Calvin Klein. Then-US President Bill Clinton spoke out against the trend. Moss said, "It was just the time. It was a swing from more buxom girls like Cindy Crawford and people were shocked to see what they called a 'waif'. What can yo ... Read full biography
