If my calculations are correct, it would appear that the shelf life of my Nutella (on my pillowcase) is longer than that of a model. Perhaps the only model known to man who’s been able to transcend this universally-accepted expiration date is Kate Moss, but even she is getting to an age where bookings don’t come as easily as they once did. So it would only make sense that she would start picking up other jobs. But unlike, say, you and I who might “pick up” an extra gig as a bartender or as an unpaid DJ for a friend’s birthday, Kate’s gigs are bit more…how do I put this?…legitimate. I doubt she even had to send in a cover letter for her position as “contributing guest editor” at Vogue UK. She was given that title in October of 2013 and, since then, has styled three shoots. And, as you might expect, they killed. The words “styled by Kate Moss” titillate, don’t they? Admit it.
Her first styling work as contributing fashion editor was in the March 2014 issue, when she styled Daria Werbowy in a spread called “Cause Célèbre,” shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott. And in which punk influences prevail:
Her second came in Vogue UK’s May issue, when she styled her new collection for Topshop on model Freja Beha Erichsen. The spread is called “All Tomorrow’s Parties” and was shot by Craig McDean:
And finally, her third and most recent foray into styling, which will appear in the pages of Vogue UK’s September issue and features Lara Stone, shot by Mario Sorrenti. Apparently it’s the largest fashion spread to ever grace the pages of Vogue UK:
