"Kate represents the ultimate kind of woman - an icon of our times," Mario Testino.

So.. i havent manged to update my blog in a while as have had the crazy process of moving house and setting up interent, bils etc! It has been a bit manic but finally we are settled in and have fully functioning internet!

Anyway i was looking through August's issue of VOGUE this week and noticed that some of the stunning photographs taken by legendary photographer Mario Testino have been published on the coveted pages and my they are amazing. Kate Moss of course is one of the most iconic supermodels of all time it doesnt even need to be said outloud we all know it, but in these photos you see a vulnerability and more human side to her.

The photos catch her smoking cigerettes, lying naked, applying eyeliner whilst crouching on the floor, etc..simple static poses that capture the real essence of a human being whilst showing how beautiful Moss truely is behind all of the glamour.

I urge you to buy a copy of August's Vogue or try and get along to the exhibition in London showing the photographs by Testino, they truly are a masterpiece...
Here are a couple:
