Curious Kate


The Daily Mail had a breathless report today of Kate Moss' recent run-in with physicist Brian Cox. The unlikely pair met at a party following the Olympics Closing Ceremony on Sunday night, where Moss peppered the scientist with what Cox called "extraordinarily detailed questions about the universe." We're not surprised to learn that Moss has more to say than she lets on (nor that she's evidently a cocktail-convo champ). Juergen Teller once imagined the soft-spoken supermodel as a Bobby Fischer-type in an editorial for Vogue UK, and Richard Prince cast her as one of his signature nurses for a spread in the blockbuster September 2003 issue of W, which was devoted to the muse. At the time, W creative director Dennis Freedman praised Moss' exceptional range: "She's a woman, she's a child, she's a tomboy, she's very sexual, she's smart, she's funny, she's good, she's bad." She's more than just that face.

    Kate Moss is definitely more than just a pretty face! One reason I love her is because she is a study in contrasts, as Freedman suggests. I know she gets a lot of flack for her lifestyle and appearance, but her influence and allure transcends all of that. But my thoughts here should not surprise anyone, since I do run a blog celebrating the model, the muse, the superstar Kate.

    Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos and story :)

    She is the KATE of all time! I can't wait to get my hands on Vogue Paris September issue with Kate on the cover!

    A face and A brain, that's what I call independent and successful woman!

  • this is lemonade

    Seeing as her success isn't just based on her pretty face but also innovative business projects etc, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Kate can hold a conversation about the Universe. I guess that's why she's so inspirational to women, and not simply admired by men and envied by her own sex.

    I just love her, she looked amazing in the olympics closing ceremony!

  • Azrakun

    in all honesty I would not have thought so! I am pleasantly surprised, but then she has gotten quite far and that can't be just due to her beauty. :-) Plus she is definitely my style icon!

    There's nothing more refreshing than child-like curiosity. Love this layer of Kate's personality.
