An icon and a phenomenon - both a muse and a canvas for many of the fashion industry's greatest creative visionaries - the remarkable Kate Moss has endured as a bellwether of fashion and pop culture. For years, her image in magazines, on billboards, and on the screen has influenced how women see themselves and their bodies, while setting societal standards for beauty. Her every step is still followed avidly in the tabloids, and her mercurial image can seemingly sell anything, from popular electronics to global luxury brands such as Calvin Klein, Longchamp, Dior, Chanel, and many others.
In "Kate Moss", author Christian Salmon explores how "the twig" became the Myth. Insightfully unravelling the mystery that is Moss - and the look and persona that has continually shifted and changed in perfect sync with the zeitgeist - "Kate Moss" is striking for its compelling read, beautifully enhanced with breathtaking images of the model throughout her career.
