One of the most widely anticipated fashion tomes of the season, Kate: The Kate Moss Book, was feted Thursday evening at Marc Jacobs’ Bookmarc store in Mayfair. Moss arrived (dressed in a full-length gold gown by Jacobs, and escorted by her husband, Jamie Hince) fashionably late to a throng of paparazzi’s lightning storm of flashes and cheers to the party at 50 St. James which was by then in full throttle.
With the aid of champagne, guests like Florence Welch (wearing spring 2013 Marc Jacobs), Boy George, Pedro Almodóvar, Kristen McMenamy, Liberty Ross, and Cara Delevingne, Noel Gallagher, Bob Geldof, Alison Mosshart, Donna Karan, Riccardo Tisci, Annabelle Neilson took to the neon, light-up dance floor to all hours of the night.
The British supermodel’s book, created in collaboration with fashion bigwigs like Jess Hallett and Jefferson Hack, is a personal retrospective on her career from “new girl with potential” to one of the most iconic models of all time. Moss admitted to Women’s Wear Daily that the glossy volume, filled with career anecdotes and tons of fashion photography (some of which are being published for the first time) wasn’t exactly difficult to compose: downplaying her achievement she stated, “Well, I didn’t actually have to write anything”. Oh Kate, don’t be so humble your career has and continues to be amazing!
Luckily, it seems we’ll be hearing a lot more from Kate soon: the Telegraph reports that Moss is making a documentary, using footage from her worldwide book tour this year and next. The fashion world can never have too much Kate!!!
