Kate Moss Does Vogue UK September 2010

  • Pin it

Fashion-wise, it seems Kate Moss is the most precious, relevant thing in the UK. She’s covering the September 2010 issue of Vogue (making this her 30th Vogue cover ever) and she brings nothing new by doing so.

Kate Moss, the ultimate fashion’n rock star, as photographed by Patrick Demarcherlier gives us another pretext to pick on Vogue’s (UK or US) obsessions. Whether it’s about movie stars or Kate Moss, Vogue editors have their weaknesses and that shows.

The Moss Factor fails to bring something substantial to the fashion scene. By now we know everything by heart, every possible twist of Moss photography. I wish there was something more original in this pictorial, something more appealing than the certified charm of Kate Moss doing her rock chick thing. Are we at that point where only the safe choice sells? (photos via)

This proves there’s a lack of real interesting rock stars today. Otherwise they would have graced the cover perhaps?

I just wish that they would use another model besides Kate Moss.
There are plenty of them out there.

I couldnt agree more on the last line of your post… and it seems we are many in this band vagon, but Alexandra Shulman seems to be oblivious to that…
to me, she has a lesbian crunch on Kate, otherwise it makes no sense.
every two months Kate is on the cover of Vogue UK…
Really BORING..
I really hope that Lara Stone’s ascension (now even higher with CK behind her) will shift the market and we will be free of Kate Monster.

I just love that military coat she’s got on the cover.

Some years ago when Kate caused scandal after scandal Vogue UK’s site published promptly positive and glamorous news and photos of her. I found that sort of hilarious.
Kate Monster? Nah, come one! Kate will go into history as a great model who managed to be long in the spotlights. We have to admit La Moss is unique.
I agree though there are many other great models around who deserve a change. Anna Wintour never put one of them on her covers. At least Alexandra Shulman use good models.

Monster is just my personal vision on her , evidently..
i dont believe in her “uniqueness” at all… there are hundreds like her at london’s suburbs..
she is a “monster” made by the media… it could perfectly be any other girl around.
the media made us kind of “swallow” her and accept her as unique, bombarding us with the same message again and again..
its the power of the mass media what scares me most….
