Kate Moss made a rare promotional appearance at a drugstore in London to show off the latest product in her fragrance empire, Vintage Muse.
In related news: Kate opens up about being an artist’s muse, ‘I’ve worked with a lot of artists — Lucian Freud, Marc Quinn, Tracey Emin, Gary Hume, Jake and Dinos Chapman . . . I became friends with some of them. A lot of them, really. And, you know, we’d see each other out, hang out at parties and what have you, and over the years they’d ask me to do odd projects’.
Now she has worked with art dealer James Danziger, of Danziger Projects, putting together 11 images of her by 11 of her favorite photographers, including Chuck Close, Juergen Teller and Annie Leibovitz. The results will be exhibited at the Pulse art fair in Miami next month. Kate’s favorite is a black and white image by Mario Sorrenti. She said; ‘I was in a relationship with him at the time and it was a very intense period of my life — it was my growing-up stage. I think I was 18 or something. I’d left London and went to New York and everything started to happen.’
She also tried to explain the reason she is continually in demand; ‘I guess I’m adaptable. I don’t know, I kind of go with whatever they want. I don’t see myself as one thing. You know, I turn up at work and they can kind of do what they want with me, really [laughs]. It’s not like there is one look that I specifically do — I’ve done a lot of different things.’
If you are planning a trip to London you can view her portrait by Mike Figgis currently showing at The Little Black Gallery until December 18th 2010.
