Product Description:

Kate Moss Kate Moss has endured as a bellwether of fashion and pop culture. For years, her image in magazines, on billboards, and on the screen has influenced how women see themselves and their bodies, while setting societal standards for beauty. This title gives her portrait. Full description

From the Back Cover:

Years after her discovery at age fourteen at New York City’s John F. Kennedy Airport and her quick ascent to the top of the supermodeling world and choice luxury-brand figurehead, Kate Moss represents an unusual success story: that of a middle-class teenager who became one of the best-paid models in the world with no apparent effort. Hers is a story of endless reinvention: more than twenty years later, despite tabloid scandals, drug use, rehab, and tumultuous high-profile romances, Kate Moss appears before us as a fresh creation each time, an ideal subject able to adapt to any circumstance, recast herself ceaselessly through self-staging and self-narration, and make the world fall in love with her over and over again.

In Kate Moss: The Making of an Icon, Christian Salmon’s insightful text, accompanied by more than sixty gorgeous images, explores this phenomenon—the story of an icon, a muse, a legend, an enigma—and how our culture has created the collective Kate Moss myth.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Kate Moss: The Making of an Icon, Christian Salmon, An icon and a phenomenon - both a muse and a canvas for many of the fashion industry's greatest creative visionaries - the remarkable Kate Moss has endured as a bellwether of fashion and pop culture. For years, her image in magazines, on billboards, and on the screen has influenced how women see themselves and their bodies, while setting societal standards for beauty.

In "Kate Moss", author Christian Salmon explores how "the twig" became the Myth. Insightfully unravelling the mystery that is Moss - and the look and persona that has continually shifted and changed in perfect sync with the zeitgeist - "Kate Moss" is striking for its compelling read, beautifully enhanced with breathtaking images of the model throughout her career.
