KateMoss1 Kate Moss Untouched (Still Gorg)

Fashionising’s Daniel Dykes posts up images of Kate Moss photographed by Juergen Teller for Self Service magazine. The conceit of the editorial is that the images of her are not photoshopped. That being said, they’re still shot by an amazing tallent, plus overexposed, which we all know does marvels when it comes to hiding imperfections. It doesn’t matter though, she’s still amazingly beautiful, as are all models with or without their makeup, a fact which seems to piss people off beyond belief. Dykes himself had some interesting things to say on the topic, which is worth a read, but here’s an excerpt in the meantime.

“….the role of Photoshop in the fashion industry often attracts the most amount of derision. When I last touched on that very issue the model who brought it into focus was Kate Moss. Moss had just been revealed as the face of Valisere Lingerie’s 2010 campaign, and it was a heavily photoshopped face. Though Photoshop had clearly been liberally applied I refued to attack its use, the debate pointless. After all, it’s my firm belief that we the consumer want Photoshop to be used – the alternative is an advertising and fiction-based landscape filled with less-than-perfect people, and reality provides us enough of that.”

It’s true. Fantasy is such an important element of fashion and how much we revel in it only differs by degree. More images from the shoot on the next page.
