kate in the vivienne westwood opus

"Kate came in with a cigarette a can of lager and some chips." says Westwood. "She's not worried about anorexia." A quick spell in hair and make-up transformed Moss, the lager-swilling chip-muncher, into Moss, the icon. Westwood describes how, after the first picture was taken, Moss studied her own image intently. “She’s very shy, and every time she does a shot, she needs to know if that magic is working on the picture or not. Maybe she doubts herself. She needs to see this ‘thing’ emerge. It is amazing, because she’s a little skinny girl before she’s photographed, but in pictures, she becomes larger than life.”
