Kate Moss is British Vogue's Newest Fashion Editor: World Rejoices
Stop press! Kate Moss, queen of the fashion world (and of my heart!) is set to complete her domination of the style set with her new role as fashion editor at Vogue.
After gracing the cover of Vogue a massive 33 times, this was the obvious next step for Kate in her post-modelling career. The magazine announced last week that the radiant Ms Moss will be a ‘hands on editor’ and that her debut work on the magazine would take place in time for the spring issue.
Editor Alexandra Shulman said in a statement:
"I am absolutely delighted that Kate is going to work with us in this new role. Her undoubtedly brilliant sense of style, depth of fashion knowledge, and understanding of what makes a wonderful image will be exciting to see used in the pages of British Vogue. I am really looking forward to working with her on ideas."
Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Models, who represent the gorgeous 39 year old commented:
'We are absolutely thrilled at Kate's appointment.
'This is a natural development in her remarkable career. Bringing her unique sense of style and creative sensibility to Vogue is the perfect fit. She is the definitive Vogue cover girl.'
This won't be the first time Kate’s creative work will appear in Vogue. All the way back in 1994, she styled a high street shoot that was critically acclaimed in the industry, while in 2005, she guest-edited Vogue Paris.
It’s proving to be a busy year for Kate, who also announced this month her plans to collaborate once again with Topshop. This will be the first time she’s worked with the store since 2010 and we’re predicting another collection that’ll sell out in a New York (or should that be London?) minute.
Her new range will be sold in over 40 countries in 2014.
She told WWD: 'I have really missed being involved in the design process, and working with the team at Topshop. Now more than ever, with London being at the forefront of fashion it feels like I'm back home working with Topshop.'
Check out our top ten Kate-Moss-Vogue covers below, and tell us which one you like best!
Back in the 90s, Moss's critics told us her look had popularised heroin chic - and sure, she's incredibly skinny. But a poster girl for drugs and rock n' roll? Here she looks as fresh-faced as a milkmaid!
Chameleon Kate goes for the chop - we like! Short, shocking and very blonde, it wasn't long before fashionistas the UK over starting looking forward to Kate's next incarnation.
Her next move? An even shorter chop, and this time Kate went au naturel. We loved this stage - young carefree Kate became the nation's sweetheart and did a patriotic Vogue cover just to prove it.
Rrr! With time, Kate grew out her hair to the tousled blonde rock chick do she's been working so well over the years. She's pure sex appeal in this ruby red Vogue Paris cover and the sequinned statement jacket became a look she'd return to again and again.
Yep, technically not one
cover, but who am I to begrudge you an extra helping of the delectable Mizz Moss? British Vogue and Vogue Paris teamed up, each giving their different take on rock n' roll Kate-as-David-Bowie. Personally, we prefer the British one - but we have to give the Vogue Paris team snaps for their daringly androgynous take on the most indisputably feminine of British models!
This, we like. Sleek minimalism may not be Kate's own cup of tea, but this cover just serves as proof of what a versatile and talented model Kate is - while the look's more subdued than we're used to seeing on her, she makes this look completely her own.
Now that's what we're talking about! The peak of boho Kate, when parkas the world over sold out, even in summertime. Nay, especially
in summertime, 'cause that's when gorgeous Kate made a rainy summer's weekend in Glastonbury seem like the hottest ticket on the planet, alongside her style disciples, Sienna Miller and Alexa Chung.
Miss Moneypenny, please! Kate Moss plays at being a secretary in a skin tight pencil skirt and a ruffled chiffon blouse, and makes the rest of us feel like dorks about the way we
look in our work wear.
If you were looking for proof that Kate Moss has struck a Dorian-Grey-esque deal with the devil to never age, this is probably it. While doing research for this article, I stumbled across this striking picture of an extremely young looking Kate and assumed it was from the mid 90s. Nope - this was for the September 2012 edition of Vogue Paris.
Timeless Kate. She's still channelling sixties-with-a-modern-twist in pale eyeshadow and white matte nails and making everyone else in the room look irrelevant.
We can't wait to get Kate's fashion tips straight from the lady herself - what about you?
