Editorial Reviews

Review

"Created by Kate Moss herself, in collaboration with creative director Fabien Baron, Jess Hallett, and Jefferson Hack, this book is a highly personal retrospective of Kate Moss’s career, tracing her evolution from “new girl with potential” to one of the most iconic models of all time." ~Highsnobiety.com

"...the Rizzoli book promises an intimate look into into fashion’s leading lady. Indeed her career has been so expansive it’s a wonder they could fit it all into one edition. Not just a model, she has also dabbled in the world of fashion design, and the book encompasses all these things and more, as well as personal images belonging to Moss herself... For a Kate Moss fan, this book really is a must-have." ~dualshow.com

"While fashion has an infamously short memory, the book will make sure no one ever forgets Kate." ~Modern Luxury Dallas

“…the book is a highly personal retrospective of her career, following her trajectory from schoolgirl waif to one of our eras most recognizable and iconic faces.” ~AnOther Magazine
 
Kate: The Kate Moss Book is the most exhaustive and compelling pictorial autobiography this reviewer has ever had the pleasure of reading. The format of the book is set up to reveal what lies beyond and beneath the two-dimensional image of one of the most ubiquitous faces and icons of the latter 20th century. 
Ms. Moss comes across as honest, quite devoted to her craft, and genuinely lovable in a business whose members it is so easy to loathe. There is no stone left unturned in these pages. She is every woman, every girl, every tomboy, and every sex siren loved by the camera. So many more wildly talented photographers make Kate: The Kate Moss Book the quintessential depiction of one of the most enduring personalities of fashion. 
The images are beyond expectation and the sheer stature of the book does everything to solidify Ms. Moss’ place in fashion’s hall of fame. I have never been a fan but am now totally won over by the unbelievable assemblage presented in this homage and visual history of Kate Moss. This is a book that equals its subject matter in quality and grandiosity.“ ~Jeffrey Felner, NY Journal of books
 
“I can’t wait to peruse the pages of this book; I’ll be in awe of all the iconic imagery. This will be a great addition to my collection.” ~Melissa Magsaysay, Angeleno Magazine
 
“…a highly personal retrospective of the iconic model’s career, tracing her evolution from “new girl with potential” to one of the most recognizable models of all time. Told through images that Moss personally selected, Kate shows the influence of her collaborations with top photographers and artists over the last two decades...” ~Life + Times
 
The Kate Moss Book celebrates the supermodel’s decades-long reign, from fresh-faced teen to grunge goddess to all-around glam icon.” ~ New York Post

The first time I saw Kate Moss was in The Face magazine (now sadly gone to magazine heaven) and I was stunned at her rawness and unique beauty. Here was a young woman who was not like the typical model we saw in ads and fashion magazine editorials. Here was a thin and lean waif who was a natural beauty with spunk and a rebel streak! Kate Moss defined style in the 90's through her Calvin Klein ads and sexy photo shoots. Despite, the backlash against her "under weight" frame, Kate continued to work and make beautiful art! For those of us who regard her beauty as timeless and love what she represented, a book collecting her greatest images was long overdue. The Kate Moss book is not just a book celebrating some of Kate Moss's most memorable images, as it is also a collection of her edgy work with some of the greatest photographers who have worked in fashion.

The book is massive and almost 400 pages. It is heavy and solid. Flipping through it is like wading through 2 decades of fashion's greatest images. Kate helped select these images and should be commended for choosing images that are not always flattering but are always interesting, Kate on the toilet, Chuck Close's wonderful black and white portraits sans make-up, and numerous shots which I found to be beautiful but the average person might not.

The nudes, black and white, vivid colors, some erotic and some plain, are some of the best images of Kate Moss, because despite reports she cried during the sessions of her earlier nude sets, she seems most comfortable without clothing. Despite enduring judgement, criticism for her weight, scandals involving drug use allegations, and having becoming a mom, Kate Moss is still super successful and beautiful (reportedly earning millions of dollars last year!

This is the definitive book of Kate Moss images, captured through the lens of some of the world's leading photographers, and personally selected by Moss.
The diversity and quality of the photographs is sublime, all capturing the iconic beauty of Kate Moss in a very elegant and perfectly finished volume.
Quite beautiful.

Must weigh 10 pounds. I love it. All Kate. I love the dedication. Good quality, hardback book with no visual errors or markings (i make photo albums in a lab). Quality paper. Minus one star because I saw a few of the photos in the last Testino book, but only a few. I love Kate because she is ageless. I gotta say though, I had no idea she had naturally curly hair. I am pleased to be able to get rid of more than a few magazines I had been saving for her editorials. I got the younger photo of her on the cover, the close up, and couldn't be happier.

My Girl-Crush! This was a Christmas gift to myself, and the best one! Full of not only photos from famous ads and editorials taken by the greatest photographers, but also of sculpture and artwork that has been made in her image. Her beauty, strangeness, and versatility really inspire me as an artist. This book will be an inspirational reference for years to come...

I have the first Kate Moss book from 1997, and I love that one. This one is massive and VERY heavy, which makes it awkward to look at. I feel like this book is less personal. The last book had many unseen photos, personal photos. This book is mostly pictures that have appeared in magazines over the years. And I don't have a problem with nudity, but almost every picture is of Kate naked. It got to be a bit much. I still pull my 1997 copy out occasionally and look through it. I can't say I will do that with this book.

If you like kate moss then you will like the book. Many images, both flattering and unflattering which I thought was good for keeping it real. Does have a lot of nudity so just keep it away from your more conservative family members if need be. I liked that the book detailed which years and for what magazine, ad, ect that each picture was used for also. Overall a good solid book. I liked that the book was very big as well.
