Kate Moss has been the face for many fashion houses and campaigns in her 25 years of career. But her journey in this universe of fashion isn’t slowing down or coming to an end, as she is still experiencing her share of professional firsts. Kate Moss has surfaced as the face for Alexander McQueen for the first time for Spring 2014 ad campaign.
The 40 year old super model has been captured by renowned photographer Steven Klein. Shot in East London, the campaign has been inspired by the 1960s British thriller; Peeping Tom which revolves around a serial killer murdering women and capturing their horrified expressions on a portable camera. The dark, eerie theme images and surreal video shows the model sporting short crop hair dyed in striking golden yellow shade. WWD also reports that Kate is styled in tight leather harness and corset tops throughout the campaign.
Clad in pleated leather and gold gladiator-style outfits, Moss is seen carrying a mini doll version of her own self, dressed in the same Sarah Burton-designed pieces from the collection. I wonder if the brand has plans to woo doll collectors and the model’s fans by putting these exclusively designed Kate Moss dolls up for auction.
The accompanying short video starts with Kate staring at a selection of monitors before entering a house. The movie also gives an impression of some voyeuristic element following her as she walks up a flight of stairs and removes her jacket.
The campaign is scheduled to show up in the March issues of Vanity Fair, Interview, Love, AnOther Magazine, and American, British, Italian, French, Chinese and Japanese Vogue along with others.
