about this item
Years after her discovery at age fourteen at New York City146;s 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 Salmon146;s insightful text, accompanied by more than sixty gorgeous images, explores this phenomenon151;the story of an icon, a muse, a legend, an enigma151;and how our culture has created the collective Kate Moss myth.
