British style icon Alexa Chung has returned to front French label Maje’s Spring 2013 campaign, as shot by British photographer Craig McDean. The campaign is said to be inspired by the Pop Art movement and Andy Warhol, but me, myself, I’m not exactly getting that vibe.

The Kate Moss Book: 8 Covers

 The Kate Moss Book: 8 Covers

I  have a Kate Moss book, it’s softcover and was purchased at a Brooklyn stoop sale for a few dollars many years ago. It’s called Kate: The Kate Moss Book (which now I’m seeing on Amazon has some decent worth!), but now there is a new and different one, called The Kate Moss Book, published by Rizzoli and available for pre-order for $52.47 on Amazon.

It’s basically a book of Kate Moss photos, and is offered with eight different covers, shot by Mario Testino, Corinne Day, Inez & Vinoodh, Craig McDean, Mert & Marcus, David Sims, Mario Sorrenti, and Juergen Teller. FYI: they will be shipped at random–no picking allowed!  See the other seven covers on the next page.

P.S. Now that I’ve pulled my Kate Moss book out, I’m reminded it  includes a forward written by Moss in 1995, in which she writes about being labeled “viciously by the majority of the media.” She ends by saying she’s off to “eat a massive steak and loads of very fattening potatoes, with loads of butter.” All of which of course refer to the insane beating she took as the face of “Heroin Chic.” Her ability to come out of that pile on says a lot about her survival skills, which in part must have contributed to the unusually long length of her career.

Ad: Kate Moss For Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone is opening its first European store in London, and the label tapped Kate Moss to front its ad campaign, as shot by Craig McDean. Rag & Bone will also show during London Fashion Week during September, and from what I’m reading, the the London ad campaign and runway show are a first for the brand.

As for Moss, my co-editor, SGP, and I were just chatting about her recent rise among male fashion watchers.  She’s been an icon forever and a day in the fashion world of women (to the point where it’s like, oh boy, another Kate Moss ad, cover, runway??) , but it seems over the past couple of years there’s been this uptick in interest for her by the fellas. Search through the posts on our sibling sites, where the guys post more about Moss more than we do, and check the popularity of her Supreme t-shirt to see what we mean.

We have this theory that the guys who once never noticed her now find her attractive because she’s a grown and accomplished female, whose credentials as a successful wife, mom and business woman are established. Sort of how young male chimps lust after more mature, alpha female chimp ladies. Not that dudes are animals or anything (even though we all actually are), but there is something to be said about a woman whose looks are still working and who has all her ducks in line.
