October “it” Girl ~ Kate Moss
I never used to care much for Kate Moss. Ok, maybe I was a bit fascinated by what Johnny Depp saw in her during their tumultuous relationship, but mostly I was very confused with the attention given to the waif of all waifs.
Ever since Kate’s life exploded in Sept 2005, when she was caught "powdering her nose" with an illegal substance, there seems to be more depth to her. She was dumped by H&M and other major contracts, but a year later the waifish style icon’s comeback has seen her profile reach new heights. Her annual income is believed to have risen to about $45 mill USD working with Rimmel, Agent Provocateur, Virgin Mobile, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Roberto Cavalli, Stella McCartney, Bulgari, Chanel, Nikon, Versace, Calvin Klein Jeans and Burberry. Now she’s set to start designing a new collection for UK’s TopShop (read more Couture in the City).
Here’s a fashionista that doesn’t need a stylist (ala Rachel Zoe) to set her look. Moss takes risks with her style, career and life and that is why she is this month’s "it" girl.
Story Cont’d…. And if that isn’t enough, she counts F. Scott Fitzgerald among her favorite writers although she also once admitted that her bedside reading was The Tao of Pooh Bear . Come on! that has to speak to this "it girl" and a dynamic personality behind the couture frocks.
