Kate Moss - The Making of an Icon

My newest book bought primarily for inspiration, through words as well as images. Kate Moss has always been one of my most eye catching models.

Buy the book - it makes an awesome coffee table book.

Favourite Quote: Then more visible they make me, the more invisible i become." - Kate Moss

"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." - Kate Moss: The Making of an Icon
