The many faces of Kate Moss

The world-famous English model’s greatest attribute is her versatility, helping her to inspire fashion photographers and artists as an icon of the nineties. Now, those who desire their own picture of the great Kate will soon be able to bid for one in London.

How fitting that Kate Moss was recently celebrated at a Tokyo exhibition alongside Catherine Deneuve as a timeless muse. From the moment she embarked on a life of catwalks and photographic studios at the age of 14, Moss was considered an exciting new face of her generation. With her cool, challenging looks and wide-spaced eyes, she wasn’t an obvious, classical beauty – but her individuality (as well as the many stories of scandal in the media) assured her lasting fame. The Christie's auction in London on 25 September will offer some of her best pictures, from such star photographers as Irving Penn and Herb Ritts – to name but two.
