1. THE BOOK I NEED IMMEDIATELY IF NOT SOONER:
Kate Moss by Mario Testino
Kate Moss by Mario Testino was released as a special edition in July 2010.
There were 1,500 copies produced, each numbered and signed by the artist.
This book is the consequence of two decades of extraordinary friendship, and phenomenal glamour, this iconic collaboration is an intimate insight into the lives and minds of two of the world’s definitive style leaders.
Mario says “I met Kate very early on. Shortly after her first Galliano show I went backstage to congratulate her, only to find her crying: she was disappointed that she had only been given one outfit to model in the show. My answer to her was this: “In life there are perfumes and colognes. You need to use lots of cologne as the scent fades away; with a perfume you just use a drop and it lasts all night. You are a perfume, you will go on and on.”
