About this item
Years after her discovery at age fourteen at New York Citys 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 Salmons insightful text, accompanied by more than sixty gorgeous images, explores this phenomenonthe story of an icon, a muse, a legend, an enigmaand how our culture has created the collective Kate Moss myth.
