moss + mcqueen
During Kate's devastating drug scandal in 2005, she was dropped from Burberry, Chanel, H&M, and basically the entire world of fashion. There was, however, one major player in Kate's corner, her close friend, the late Alexander McQueen. At the end of his spring/summer 2006 runway show, McQueen wore a "We love you Kate" t-shirt, and for the final look of his fall/winter 2006 show he featured a STUNNING hologram of Kate twirling in a STUNNING McQueen gown, leaving the entire audience STUNNED. Seriously an amazing moment in fashion history. Please check it out by clicking here and then here (leaps and bounds better than the Tupac hologram which looks all roboty…but seriously, Tupac forever! You're always in our hearts, even if your hologram wasn't as good as Kate's).
Given their close relationship, it's somewhat surprising that Kate has never fronted a McQueen campaign, that is...until now. The brand's spring 2014 ad campaign features Miss Moss with a slick yellow 'do and a voodoo doll version of herself. Awesome. Bring on the Kate.
P.S. Kate's debut as a contributing fashion editor for Vogue UK is set to hit the shelves in T-minus 3 days! We'll keep you posted with details of the 12-page, 70's punk-inspired spread!
