Kate Moss.

To share happiness is the very noblest thing human beings can aspire to

In 25 anni di attività di modella Kate Moss  è stata ampiamente fotografata sia in quanto modella che in quanto reale punto di interesse.

E in questi 25 anni l’abbiamo letteralmente ‘vista vivere’ senza sentirla parlare poi tanto (quando parla è se possibile ancora meglio che in foto).

Vi consiglio di leggere quest’ intervista di Vanity Fair Us di cui hanno ampiamente parlato anche i giornali nostrani (di cui la storia del tatuaggio dell’artista Freud che vale milioni).

L’intervista è rilasciata in occasione dell’uscita del libro  “Kate Moss” edito da Rizzoli, che ho già sfogliato di soppiatto alla Feltrinelli.

Kate Moss – Rizzoli

Non si tratta del solito libro sullo stile di Kate. Si tratta di un bellissimo Table Book di fotografie dove tutte le foto hanno un denominatore comune che anziché essere l’artista, oppure la corrente, il periodo ecc è il soggetto. Kate Moss.

Ci sono molte foto che non avrete mai visto, alcune molto molto suggestive. E’ un piccolo capolavoro.

Perché? Perché Kate Moss è la madeleine vivente di un’epoca ancora vicinissima ma non attuale, di uno stile di vita che probabilmente ancora esiste, ma è raro e circoscritto.

Vi trascrivo (per chi non avesse voglia di leggersi le 6 pagine dell’intervista integrale che comunque consiglio vivamente) alcuni passaggi tratti dall’articolo di Vanity Fair.

FACE – 1990 – THE 3rd SUMMER OF LOVE

“When I see these Face pictures, I see Lila. I love that.”

“The 3rd Summer of Love”—a classic statement of the anti-glamorous grunge style, of which Day was a founding artist.

GRUNGE

Marc Jacobs. Two years later he nailed the grunge aesthetic with a famous show in New York, with Moss as a model, for which he got fired by Perry Ellis but earned fashion immortality.

VOGUE UK 1993 – 

“If it had been a girl with bigger breasts than mine, and what they’d expect to be a lingerie model, then it wouldn’t have been shocking at all. Because it was shot on a teenage girl, they said it was outrageous, pedophilia. Ridiculous. I must have been 19. I’m standing in my underwear. Really controversial.”

Moss was tagged with “heroin chic” as well as anorexia. “I had never even taken heroin—it was nothing to do with me at all”

LOVE part.1 – Mario Sorrenti

She fell in love with Mario Sorrenti, one of the new wave of photographers, which helped, but they were often separated. He would be in London while she was in New York, where she stayed with his mother, Francesca.

SKINNY –

Nobody took you out for lunch when I started. Carla Bruni took me out for lunch once. She was really nice. Otherwise, you don’t get fed. But I was never anorexic.

LOVE part.2 – Johnny Depp

In New York, in the 90s, Kate Moss and Johnny Depp lived in a building on Waverly Place, where Carolyn Bessette, John Kennedy Jr.’s then girlfriend, lived downstairs.

A tribal area was staked out by James Brown, Jen Ramey, the casting director Jess Hallett, and Lucie de la Falaise, the wife of Marlon Richards, who is the son of Keith Richards and Anita Pallenberg.

Being MOSSED – Let’s just have fun

Amanda Harlech compares Moss to Daisy in The Great Gatsby, “but without the heartlessness. It was ‘Oh, come on, let’s have fun. Let’s just have fun.’ And that’s not frivolous, actually. To share happiness is the very noblest thing human beings can aspire to.”

“She got Mossed,” says Moss. “People that don’t know me get Mossed. It means, I was gonna go home, but then I just got led astray. In the best possible way, of course. I mean, it’s always fun, and a good time.”

“I remember phoning downstairs,” says Hallett, “and saying, ‘Can we have an alarm call for seven A.M., please?’ They said, ‘That’s in five minutes, madam.’

Qui sotto la foto che preferisco, ritrae Kate Moss abbracciata ad un Lucien Freud malato che di li a poco sarebbe mancato.
