Modestly titled Kate Moss by the biggest photographers, the show surveys two decades of the supermodels career. It includes defining images: Corinne Days frank nudes and Arthur Elgorts shot of Moss standing on a Brasserie Lipp table in a Night Porter-esque ensemble both make appearances. Photographs from Patrick Demarchelier, Mary McCartney, Paolo Roversi and Rankin round out the heady mix.
The show at Pariss La Gallerie de LInstant marks the culmination of a years-long drama. In 2008, the Musee des Arts Decoratifs said that it would mount a Moss exhibition, keeping with its status as Pariss fashion museum of note. After delays, the Musee announced last April that its difficult economic position rendered it incapable of following through with the original plan.
This exhibition is an homage, not only to her beauty, but also to her intelligence, a spokesperson from La Gallerie said. Get there before 14 September to see for yourself.
