sinner & saint.

kate moss in a rare religion-meets-high-fashion motif  for the cover of W magazine | march 2012 “fashion bible” issue.

shot by steven klein, moss exudes a haunting mood on both available magazines covers.

styled by W’s fashion & style director edward enninful, the editorial is coupled with an article that explores the relationship the world has with miss moss.

will self writes:

“Whether angel or devil, Kate Moss beguiles in any guise. Moss has aged and continues to age—not gracefully, for she’s a suburban hellion from the outer limits of Cockneydom, but beguilingly. The images seen here delight in the platinum and pearliness of her slightly skew-whiff teeth. I lose myself in the cold reactor shutdown of her brown-to-black eyes. As for that ever feted bone structure? Well, what to do but wax poetic about that perfect geometry: Moss’s mouth no rosebud but a crushed carnation, her cheekbones somehow performing the alien accomplishment of curving down to below its petals.”
