At Long Last, Kate Moss for Alexander McQueen
Given her close relationship with the house and the late designer, it’s somewhat surprising that Kate Moss has never fronted an Alexander McQueen campaign. This season, however, the brand has remedied that, and tapped the forty-year-old supe to star in its Steven Klein-lensed Spring ’14 ads, two of which debut exclusively here. Barefaced and clad in Sarah Burton’s black leather and gold warrior wares, Moss sports an acid orange pixie cut in the snaps—a touch that lends the images a Fifth Element-meets-Hunger Games vibe. (Fitting, considering McQueen frocks pop up on more than a few occasions in Catching Fire.) Also starring in the ads is a sufficiently unnerving mini Moss doll, who’s styled to match the model. We imagine that the toy’s role will become clear in Klein’s film for the brand. Inspired by the voyeuristic 1960s British thriller, Peeping Tom, the short is set to go live on McQueen’s Web site at 8 a.m. EST. Can Moss top her ghostly Fall 2006 performance for the house, in which she was projected onto the designer’s runway as a floating hologram? Head over to www.alexandermcqueen.com to find out.
