You’ve probably already seen the winter cover of i-D featuring one of the best winks of all time, Kate Moss looking at us through her 1995 Calvin Klein ad photographed by Craig McDean. If you haven’t seen the cover, or didn’t care about it, or you don’t even recognize that photo – I recommend don’t waste your time reading the rest of the post because it’s purely about worshipping Kate Moss and my sacred book is made of her photos from 90’s.
Today, after a friend told me that her friend saw and met Kate Moss at a house party in Istanbul couple of days ago (?!?!?!, right??) I suddenly had a rush of feelings, I remembered how crazy I was for Kate Moss. And not just during my childhood, in 2006 when I was studying German at Goethe Institut in Bonn, they asked us to tell a story about our icon. When I finished my short paragraph about Kate the Great, people were looking at me blankly. First I thought it was my awful German, but then I realized nobody knew her. NOBODY! That’s probably one of the main reasons I’ve hated German and didn’t continue the courses. Something like that would never happen in a French course, right?
