About Kate Moss

Born in Croydon, England, Moss was discovered in 1988 at the age of 14 at JFK Airport in New York City. Shooting to fame in 1993 with a evocative ad campaign for Calvin Klein; Moss changed the look of modelling in the 90’s. She brought into focus the ‘heroin chic’ look and ‘size zero’ fashion. Of this Moss said; “It was just the time. It was a swing from more buxom girls like Cindy Crawford and people were shocked to see what they called a ‘waif’.

Moss has starred in countless campaigns for high-end labels, from; Gucci, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, Chanel, Burberry and Bulgari. As well as having worked with the most renowned fashion photographers in industry, from Mario Testino, to Mario Sorrenti, Steven Klein and Juergen Teller.

Still commanding the runway spotlight, recently closing the Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 collection, Moss has also launched a line of clothing with Topshop.

Playing Dress Up… Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

Katie Holmes’ has been transformed into the style icon Jackie Kennedy – her wardrobe personifying the late first lady of style…

While the ‘The Kennedys’, a four-part biopic, starring Katie Holmes and Greg Kinnear hasn’t received the best reviews, the costumes and styling is something else entirely.

Kennedy’s chic khaki pants worn with crisp white blouses; her sophisticated White House shift dresses; as well as her iconic ballgowns – make a stylish appearance in the mini-series. Giorgio Armani recreated the iconic pink Chanel suit (pictured above left), that Kennedy wore in Dallas in Nov. 1963, the day her husband was assassinated. Costume designer, Chris Hargadon, created over 45 looks for the mini-series, which also sees a beautiful recreation of the black Oleg Cassini suit, worn by Kennedy at her husband’s funeral.

Many of you cited Jackie Kennedy as one of your favourite style icons; I would love to hear what you think of Katie Holmes’ First Lady transformation? xx
