Back in September 2008 the fashion world could hardly contain its excitement when the Musee des Arts Decoratifs announced that it would be curating an exhibition dedicated to Kate Moss. The museum is quite the go-to for fashion-centred exhibitions, having already played host to retrospectives on Balenciaga, Madeleine Vionnet and Christian Lacroix to name but a few. It planned to to open an homage to the world's most recognisable supermodel, exploring 'Kate Moss' myth and its creation by some of the greatest photographers of the last twenty years.
