Mario Testino est considéré comme le plus grand photographe de mode de sa génération, mais ses photos de Kate Moss vont au-delà de la mode. Résultat de deux décennies d'une extraordinaire amitié, extraordinairement glamour, cette collaboration des deux icônes offre un aperçu intime de la vie et de la pensée de deux des figures de proue mondiales de la mode. Revivez l'aventure de l'une des collaborations les plus fertiles de l'histoire de la mode, des clichés réalisés en coulisses aux premiers défilés, à des témoignages de la réalisation des éditoriaux marquants, qu'ils continuent à produire pour les magazines les plus prestigieux du monde. De nombreuses photographies ont été choisies parmi les archives personnelles de Testino, et sont ici publiées pour la première fois. Cet ouvrage est l'hommage personnel de Mario à sa muse : une jeune fille ayant attiré son regard et conquis son cœur grâce à sa beauté, son humour et son esprit, et dont l'image, à travers ces images, a conquis les esprits de par le monde.

Years after her discovery at age fourteen at New York City’s John F. Kennedy Airport and her quick ascent to the top of the supermodeling world and choice luxury-brand figurehead, Kate Moss represents an unusual success story: that of a middle-class teenager who became one of the best-paid models in the world with no apparent effort. Hers is a story of endless reinvention: more than twenty years later, despite tabloid scandals, drug use, rehab, and tumultuous high-profile romances, Kate Moss appears before us as a fresh creation each time, an ideal subject able to adapt to any circumstance, recast herself ceaselessly through self-staging and self-narration, and make the world fall in love with her over and over again. In Kate Moss: The Making of an Icon, Christian Salmon’s insightful text, accompanied by more than sixty gorgeous images, explores this phenomenon—the story of an icon, a muse, a legend, an enigma—and how our culture has created the collective Kate Moss myth.

"Model as Muse" explores fashion's reciprocal relationship to iconic beauties that represent the evolution and changing face of the feminine ideal. Featuring a brief historical overview of the phenomenon of the supermodel, the book begins in the early 20th century and continues to the present day. Dorian Leigh and Lisa Fonssagrives in the 1940s are joined in the 1950s by Dovima, Sunny Harnett, and Suzy Parker. They are followed by Jean "The Shrimp" Shrimpton and Twiggy in the 1960s and Lauren Hutton in the 1970s. The 1980s witnessed such enduring personalities as Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell, and Linda Evangelista, while the 1990s brought on Kate Moss, whose edgy, street-inflected style has inspired not only fashion designers, editors, stylists, and photographers, but artists such as Chuck Close and Lucien Freud. With an emphasis on styles from the 1950s onward, the book features designs from the great ready-to-wear and couture houses--Madame Gres, Christian Dior, and Balenciaga in the 1950s; Rudi Gernreich, Yves Saint Laurent, and Cardin in the 1960s; Giorgio di Sant'Angelo and Halston in the 1970s; Christian Lacroix, Versace, Comme des Garcons, and Calvin Klein in the 1980s; and Marc Jacobs, John Galliano, and Alexander McQueen in the 1990s.

A dark, all-pervading sexuality haunts this beautifully wrought collection of interlinked short stories set against the backdrop of the diverse communities of Cape Town. The voice of the collection opens up territory that has only been gingerly approached in South African literature, tenderly probing the occult regions of the psyche in order to expose sexuality and repression, passion and inhibition, and joy and sin. The intriguing overlap of ambiguities and contradictions exposed by this gentle inquiry illuminates the rifts and tears in the tapestry of ardent yet unrecognized South African longings and desires. Andr Brink writes about this book: "Moss is a collection of some of the most exquisite short stories I have read in a long time. If this seems like extravagant praise, I can only say that I believe they can be compared to some of the best work by Margaret Laurence. Each story has been finely carved, with every little detail in place, creating such a dense system of interrelated meanings that the reader cannot skip a line without missing something vital. This sense of interrelatedness applies not only to the details of each story in its own right, but also to the collection as a whole: several of the characters (Jessica, Eva, Sean, Luke Loyola etc)feature in different stories, which means that a web of reference is created within which meanings are constantly related, enhanced or relativised. Even more pervasive than characters is the recurrence of certain symbols (the moss garden, the church and cross, the sinful woman etc), and the fixation with constantly interchanging moral values. Just as the stories in Zoe Wicomb's You Can t Get Lost in Cape Town are subtly interwoven through space and time, Watson s stories share a frame-work of reference in their beautifully understated immersion in the moral problematic of good and evil, the (often deceptive)opposition of virginal purity and the contamination of the flesh. I can honestly say that I have seldom, in South African literature, come across short stories of such suggestive power as these. And the deft way in which they are all, in an almost subterranean or submarine manner, related to one another, creates the possibility of reading the volume, not just as a collection of short stories, but perhaps as a redefinition of the form of the novel.
