The name “Kate Moss” is pretty much synonymous with muse, thus it isn’t a surprise that one of fashion’s greatest photographers, Mario Testino calls her one of his. The pair have been friends for two decades and from that friendship, some amazing photos have emerged. Both take glamour to the next level and are truly masters of their crafts.
Kate Moss by Mario Testino chronicles their work together from early on when the supermodel graced her first runways to groundbreaking editorials that the two have collaborated on for some of the world’s most renowned magazines. Many of the images in the book are from Testino’s private archive and are never before seen, thus it truly is a treat. Testino writes the foreword and Moss, an exclusive essay.
Many designers have been inspired by soon-to-be Mrs. Moss and we can’t blame them. Here are some of my favorite “Kate” picks (perhaps directly or indirectly influenced by her style).
Eye-catching and gorgeous, the Kate Ring by Mark Walsh & Leslie Chin would surely adorn her fingers when she is having one of her girlier moments. We know for a fact that Marc Jacobs and Kate Moss are great friends so that leaves no question about the Kate Shoulder Bag ($950). She’s known to have a hippie moment every now and then and DANNIJO’s Kate Mesh Bracelet ($194) is just that with turquoise and red stones, channeling festival chic.
Kate Moss by Mario Testino retails for $69.99. Visit www.taschen.com to purchase.
