Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"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
