Kate Moss Plays Director for British Vogue

-------


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.

The Ice Bucket Just Got Much Chicer, Thanks to Gisele Bündchen and Mario Testino

-------

The chances of Donatella Versace dumping a bucket of ice water over her head seem slim to none, but this could be a real thing—maybe. This afternoon, after accepting his nomination by Gisele Bündchen, Mario Testino called upon Donatella, Kate Moss, and David Beckham to take part in the Ice Bucket Challenge. The monthlong campaign, in efforts to raise awareness of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), quickly went viral with influencers like Oprah pouring it out on Instagram. But what started as an Internet stunt has reportedly raised more than $10 million. We’re ready to see more of fashion’s favorites participate—and we’d happily nominate ourselves to pour anything on David Beckham.

Kate Moss Is Richer Than Ever

Kate MossSome 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.

The 10 Best Moments from Riccardo Tisci’s Ibiza Birthday Bash

-------

When we first heard that Riccardo Tisci would celebrate his 40th B-Day with a few (hundred) of his closest friends, in Ibiza, on a horse stud farm, we were fully prepared for an influx of “HBD @riccardotisci17″-captioned Instagrams. Every one of the Givenchy designer’s longtime nearest and dearest, like Mariacarla Boscono to his some of his new devotees like Kardashian/Jenner clan (Justin Bieber was also there. We’re still trying to figure this one out) quickly flooded our feeds with that may have been the most Instagrammed birthday party in history. In addition to a performance by Kanye West (surprise!), a Studio ’74 theme (get it? It’s the year Tisci was born.), and a four-tiered birthday cake (yes, fashion people eat birthday cake), Tisci was treated to a pair of 24-karat-gold Beats by Dre headphones, which were bestowed upon him by Naomi Campbell, before she and Kate Moss broke into “Happy Birthday.” Here, the 10 most memorable moments from Riccardo Tisci’s 40th birthday bash—plus, an exclusive bonus video of Tisci making a wish. #Ibiza74

BONUS: Make a wish, Riccardo!

Kate Moss for Stella McCartney is the Stuff that Dreams are Made of

Kate Moss for Stella McCartney

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.
