Party-girl supreme and queen of street fashion, supermodel and millionairess, Kate Moss is as familiar in headlines as on the catwalk as the twin narratives of lurid tabloid stories and continuing adulation of the fashion industry demonstrates to all the paradox of fame. Whether she’s partying, finding another way to get out of it, or strutting self-assuredly down a catwalk in Paris you can be sure photographers are in a huddle close by, ready splash her or crash her in tomorrows headlines. She is now more familiar to some as the Cocaine Kate of recent tabloid headlines than as the face of Chanel and Burberry.
This searching and remarkable book charts both her career and personality as she is propelled out of a misspent youth by the hand of fate to the top of her profession and beyond to become an icon, bigger than the brands she is paid a fortune to represent. However, within the whirlwind of that life the book reveals to us an all-too-human Kate Moss too, as surprised as anyone by the nonsense of celebrity, an apparently addictive personality with a frenetic desire to be loved that accounts for her merry-go-round of celebrity lovers and parallel quest for a dream man to endorse her ethereal fashion self. From the Johnny Depp saga to her strange affair with Pete Doherty, this book recounts it all in a fast-paced, taboo-shattering style that is in a mould reminiscent of previous daring exposes from Fred Vermorel.
