Another day, another Kate Moss cover! No, seriously, this time it’s big! Harper’s Bazaar UK has Kate Moss on the cover (the issue has two covers, and Kate is on both of them) of the May 2011 issue. And there’s a perfectly good explanation for that – an Alexander McQueen tribute issue!
Photographed by Solve Sundsbo, Kate Moss is wearing a gorgeous ruffled dress on the newsstand cover. A dress you may remember. Somewhat. Ghostly. It’s the same dress Kate was wearing in the new legendary hologram feature she did in the Fall Winter 2006 Alexander McQueen Fashion Show. Such an ethereal moment! One of my favorite in fashion. Ever! The second cover, however, is radically different, miles away from the first and from Kate’s usual style. (the story continues right after the jump with larger images of the covers)
We’re so used to seeing Kate Moss wearing her already trademark black eyeliner that I don’t even remember her with otherwise. In this second cover’s case, Kate Moss is sans eyeliner and looking fabulous! She’s also wearing a dress from the Fall Winter 2011 2012 Alexander McQueen Collection, as designed by Sarah Burton. She’s the very picture of perfection! I don’t even mind she’s looking a bit like Kylie Minogue!
The issue, like I said, it very special, featuring Alexander McQueen’s muses (Kate Moss, Daphne Guinness and Annabelle Neilson) recollecting their most precious McQueen memories. For the moment these are the only images available but I’m looking forward for the rest. Have you seen more from the issue? and if so, where? (Harper’s Bazaar via 1, 2)
