The world can’t get enough of controversy. The world can’t get enough of Kate Moss.
The French Vogue issued a new number with Kate on the cover shot by Inez and Vinoodh. The editorial is rather Brigitte Bardot-ish, in a raw nude-rock attitude. 70s air and mini-outfitted La Moss go for a photo shoot by the lake.
I’m not a fan of tobacco glamour, as I already said before and thus I didn’t posted the pictures where KM was photographed holding a cigarette.
To quote the editorialist “On the Road – About Fashion as a Road Movie.. The most STAR of the tops makes the choice of leather, cotton and denim, transforming perfectos and mini-shorts in basics made for living. (..)”
I see no road movie in these pictures. I see a woman down by the lake side, a Honda motorcycle, an impossibly dressed blonde over makeup-ed woman who just likes to wear vests and never close them, even if she’s wearing nothing underneath.
The cover says “Sexy like Kate Moss”. The only thing I see is an unconvincing woman looking more like being hunted. Just out of curiosity, if you know, why there’s no smiling in fashion editorials?
[…] has to turn out. My intentions here, after posting about Kate Moss photos by Inez and Vinoodh for French Vogue, were to understand why in GQ’s perspective, women can be attractive, look alive and healthy and […]
I agree, she does look a bit haunting in these…and never buttons her vest. Not a very appealing look.
I can’t see what this has to do with fashion and why this is attractive for me, as a woman, in a fashionable way. Vogue is a womens magazine right? Isn’t this shoot really not meant to be for certain male magazines? I’ve name for this and I hardly dare to write it but ok, I do it anyway: the inflatable doll look…….
[…] up again. I was wrong. It seems it’s a wave of doll-ish pictorials (like one dear reader made the remark on the site) in all magazines. Fashion or […]
I have to agree. I’m not very impressed by these.
Kate is a Scrawn, suitable for the fashion runway, I admit.
These pix (especially the cover) presents some thin tramp apparantly fogged out of her gourd. This is selling nothing but “um, duh?”.
Bad shoot. Very bad. (“Oh, I think Pete Doherty is leaking down my left leg…”)
Maybe fashion is no longer appealing by itself, it absolutely has to come with celebrity. However, Paris Vogue takes a bit further with every skinny smoking blonde passing its pages. Like the oh-so legendary french charm has something to do with that. Or like if you’re not like that, you’re not worth the fashion while.
[…] it or hate it, Naomi’s I-D cover with Stefano Pilati isn’t one to overlook. Inez and Vinoodh really done an outstanding […]
I have to disagree with all of you . i think these pictures are absolutely great , and Kate Moss looks sublime in them .
Who cares if it doesn’t look like a ” road movie ” it’s a fashion photo shoot .
The clothes are great , ” the tobacco glamour ” isn’t disturbing , this pictures express rebellion and freedom ( perhaps that’s why the article mentioned the ” road movie ” like atmosphere )
it is as though none of you know anything about fashion , how can you say that this is a ” very bad ” photo shoot , it’s Vogue Magazine along with some of the greatest photographers .
I could not agree more – i think kate looks fabulous and i love the hazy lighting it is so nostalgic
HELLO they do not smile in editorials because they are not supposed to make you feel cheery and happy about yourself they are about high fashion and challenging your perceptions – or all we would have would be super-whitened teeth in commercials.
I think if it is slightly disturbing that is because it slightly wants to provoke comment and scandal – that is what art is all about, making you really think and argue.
I love this edition of vogue… i looked for the boots that kate worn on the few picture… and i bought them but it was very difficult… 1245 euros the price was too big but i love them… like kate wear them, i can wear them like her and they are too much beautiful…
