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.

“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.”
