We’re used to seeing Kate Moss in front of the camera. Just in the past few weeks, the supe starred in the new Stella McCartney ad campaign and verified that her career is stronger than ever—this year was her most lucrative to date. (She’s reportedly worth $92 million.) Seeing her on the other side of the lens, however, isn’t something that happens quite so often. For British Vogue‘s September issue, Moss took her first stab at filmmaking with The Wolf in Her, a short film that captures Lara Stone frolicking in the woods for a Mario Sorrenti shoot. Shot on a Super 8 camera, the film has a fuzzy, ethereal quality to it, enriched by background music from her husband Jamie Hince’s band, The Kills. A few wolves also made it into the video, which makes us question the fear factor on set. We’d like to think Moss kept her cool, as always. Watch the film, here.
Some would argue that Kate Moss’ career was hottest in the ’90s, but if her paychecks are any indication, the model is now bigger than ever. According to The Telegraph, this year has been Moss’ most lucrative to date. In the last 12 months, her business assets rose from £11 million to £17 million, bringing her net worth to £55 million (or about $92 million). Her two companies, Tilly Church Ltd and Skate LLP, both saw significant increases between October 2012 and October 2013, roughly totaling £5 million.
Moss’ success this year can also be attributed to dozens of global magazine covers and advertising campaigns, like the ones for Kérastase, David Yurman, and Stella McCartney (which is included in our Best of Fall ’14 campaigns feature today). Other additions to Moss’ endless portfolio? A Playboy editorial for the magazine’s 60th anniversary; her ongoing contract with Rimmel London; a relaunched collaboration with Topshop; and the Burberry fragrance campaign, which she fronts alongside Cara Delevingne. Timeless is an understatement. Moss’ fortune is expected to rise even more before 2015.
What does Kate Moss dream about? That was the question on Stella McCartney’s mind when she cast the iconic model in her Mert & Marcus-lensed Winter 2014 ad campaign, which debuted today. “Kate epitomizes the Stella McCartney woman and I wanted to capture her dreams and the moments we have shared over the years,” McCartney said of Moss, who has now appeared in her ad campaigns seven times. “I wanted to escape into something surreal this season, and fashion should make us dream, sometimes.” These particular dream-like images depict Moss inside zippered frames, which are surrounded by abstract landscapes of glaciers, forests, and the cosmos. The campaign will debut in the September issues of major international magazines. A short film titled Kate Dreams is set to follow.
