The many faces of Kate Moss, arguably the world’s most famous supermodel, are compiled together in a revelatory new book created by the model herself, with eight covers revealed here for the first time. Created in collaboration with celebrated art director and editor Fabien Baron, AnOther Magazine founder and editor-in-chief Jefferson Hack and Jess Hallett, the book is a highly personal retrospective of her career, following her trajectory from schoolgirl waif to one of our era’s most recognisable and iconic faces.

In a brainwave that serves to emphasise Kate’s extraordinary range, editor Baron’s decision to issue the book with eight different covers is a startling reminder of Moss’s seemingly infinite chameleon quality. From the earliest image of the daisy chain strewn teenager shot by Corinne Day in 1990 – via the gleaming Amazonian goddess captured by Mert & Marcus, David Sims’ haughty beauty and Craig McDean’s sensual temptress – to 2009’s sleek French Vogue editorial with Inez & Vinoodh, this is a work that not only represents the extraordinary depth of work by a single model, but also tracks the history of fashion media and modern culture.

Kate: The Kate Moss Book is released in November 2012, published by Rizzoli
