From her reign of ‘90s waifs to the bohemian, rocker-chic sensibility that became her signature, Kate Moss has cemented her status in the fashion world as icon. She was famously discovered at JFK when she was just 14 and shot by Corrine Day and Melanie Ward for The Face in a series of black and white photos depicting “dirty realism” or “grunge” soon after. This shoot defined a new aesthetic in high fashion: on the heels of The Supers (Christy, Cindy, Linda, Naomi) came Kate from Croydon.
Time logged on runways and in front of the camera brought her to the world’s attention, but it is her personal sense of style that endures. Last week Kate Moss attended her first Met Gala since 2009 (she co-chaired the “Models and Muse” event alongside Marc Jacobs that year); amidst ball gowns requiring their own transportation, she wore a stunning LBD by Saint Laurent. All hail.
TO DO (thanks Kate)
1. Celebrate what makes you distinct with the things you wear.
2. Lean into your uniform (whatever that is--hers is lots of black, denim, boots galore) and pile on luxe accessories you love to personalize (THIS IS WHERE TO INVEST).
3. Embrace well-cut jackets.
TO DO is a new section that distills the blog down to two or three actions or points. I hope this links content to closets--let me know what you think!
