Moss goss

Here at Stylitz we (ie. me) are obsessed with Kate Moss. Yes, yes she may have been surpassed of late by the ubiquitous Cara Delevigne, but there is only one Mossy and despite some drama and recent comparisons to Kathy from Eastenders, she is a fashion icon of supreme status.  At university, where I was studying fashion design, I regularly used poses from her book (pictured below) as a base for my fashion illustrations. She is a chameleon; a true model canvas that can cover every look – be it vampy, sultry, grungy, happy or fresh faced Calvin Klein simplicity.

So I was very excited to hear that this September, Christie’s is hosting an auction of some of her iconic images as shot by the likes of Mario Testino, Annie Leibovitz, Nick Knight (main holding image) and Glen Luchford.  Curated by German art collector Gert Elfering, this lot is sure to get the fashion world buzzing.  With some images valued at £150,000, this is not for those with a Primark budget. I have 2 months to win the lottery.  Better get playing…

  1. You are so right Litz, she’s utterly amazing. When I worked at CN they had her on the cover of Vogue 4+ times a year – the sales jumped so high every time she was on there that they couldn’t afford not to have her the same month next year! Love that Bowie cover xx
