Kate Moss is still the coolest girl and one of the highest-paid models around. But in spite of the fat bank she’s been making as a lady who is extremely pretty and talented in front of a camera, she’s been diversifying her options lately. First she picked up her design gig at Topshop again by bringing Kate Moss for Topshop back from the dead, and now she’s actually found herself a spot on the masthead at British Vogue.
Vogue UK announced this morning that Kate Moss would be signing on as a contributing fashion editor for the magazine.
This marks the first time that the British model – who has starred on 33 British Vogue covers since her debut for March 1993, as well as numerous shoots inside – will be directing the other side of the creative experience. She will be a hands-on editor joining the rest of the Vogue fashion team of stylists and working with her choice of photographers and models.
“Her undoubtedly brilliant sense of style, depth of fashion knowledge and understanding of what makes a wonderful image will be exciting to see on the pages of British Vogue,” said editor Alexandra Shulman, who puts Moss on a cover approximately once a year. “I am really looking forward to working with her on ideas.”
The fun thing about this new job is that Moss isn’t just doing a one-off hobby shoot. She’ll actually be directing recurring photo stories for the magazine, which will give us a chance to see how her style evolves in the role. Vogue says the first Kate Moss, British Vogue Contributing Editor, fashion editorial is scheduled for an issue this spring.
Kate Moss doesn’t talk much to the press, but she has a lot of style and is very, very good at what she does. After so many years being awesome in front of the camera, we imagine she’s picked up quite a bit about what makes a good fashion editorial, so we’re really looking forward to seeing what she comes up with.
