Fantastic Fashion Fantasy!

Bringing the December cover of British Vogue to sparkling, effervescent life is the first of two movies created from footage recorded during Nick Knight's recent photo shoots for said title. A flurry of a fashion fantasia edited by Ruth Hogben, today's opener features Kate Moss as a prima ballerina coiffed by Sam McKnight, preened by Val Garland and smothered liberally in milles feuille Limoncello layers of the softest, dreamiest silk-tulle courtesy of Christi an Dior Haute Couture.

    Has Kate Moss becomes too convenient of a choice for magazines-Interview magazine used her as the first cover model after the revamping of the layout, it's just a no brainer, yet, I thought it's a lazy choice-because using her gaurantees sales, even with a terrible layout, so many people would buy the magazine because she is on the cover, not because they think it's cool layout or if the magazine is interesting.

    I don't think that she is chosen .... because she is just a pretty face !. Can you mention one model that has managed today to catch the public's imagination ? ....... the following sentence proves indeed that her ' magic ' appeal is undeniable , whether we like it, agree or not ...: " using her gaurantees sales, even with a terrible layout, so many people would buy the magazine because she is on the cover, not because they think it's cool layout or if the magazine is interesting. " and SALES is what it is all about , the essence of the magazine ....... but then let's be fair and not blame her or the magazine for that matter .... but the PUBLIC self who very eagerly wants a 'piece' of the fantasy ...... but then again it is all about ... giving the public the freedom to buy what they want ....
    How many models wouldn't dream of having such staying-power-appeal .... and to be able to evoke visual poetry ... ?

    Is everyone here referring to the 21 second clip of Kate Moss posing for the camera??
    This is hardly impressive stuff...
    And, yes, I agree that she is an easy choice. I bought this months Vogue despite Moss being on the cover.
    As far as staying power goes- I'd rather see someone who's made a real achievement in life at that stage.
    The Kate Moss phenomenon is being fed to us through the media convincing people that she is a major icon of our time. In reality, she is just a great model with a cool sense of style and lots of designer clothes at her disposal- c'est tout.

Who would be your choice that is far more interesting to the public and can be far more inspiring to buy that particular issue even if the purchaser self finds, believes or is convinced that using her as model is far to easy, luck of imagination or ' boring' ..... ???
    Yes the media feeds but people want to be fed ... that is why people buy magazines otherwise they wouldn't bother to pick up VOGUE or any fashion magazine at all ... there is always the freedom to be dicerning ... :):)

    Kate is a better model than when she started, but I think this icon thing has taken on a life of its own, regardless of how she performs on the job, people have casted their opinions of her based on all the stuff written on her, mostly invented by the paz, and this image is in some ways in her control but in many ways not.

    For the Interview cover-Tang Wei, she just been pronounced HK citizen so she is allowed to work with the film/entertainment industry around the world. She was banned to work for the nude scenes she had done in mainland China in "Lust, Caution", and she is one of the most provocative, anticipated actresses in the global cinema scene now.

    A great choice for CHINA ! ... but a choice of no real significance outside CHINA, read ' unknown ' ... sorry KA WAI but you do seem sometimes rather 'one way' bias .... a pity for someone who does seem to be a world citizen and who by living in the west would be able to understand why KATE MOSS is their choice , read SALES, whether we like her or not ..... She has just and simply passed the stage of the cliché word ... ' MODEL ' ... she is no longer a model !!! ... she is imbedded in the publics's sense of beauty, style, glamour, etc .... whatever that may mean .
    The fim may appear 'pretty' .. 'to pretty' .... but that is not what makes the film appealing or hateful ... it is KATE giving it ' life' .... artist director aside !
    I think it is rather .... intriguing .... that she is the only one who manages to increase the numbers of post at such a rapid tempo .... I don't think that Tang Wei, however wonderfully talented she may be as an actress could manage to break KATE MOSS's records in the matter of selling a fashion magazine in the west ... but in CHINA I'm sure she gets the record she deserves .... and that is GREAT !!
    Give us a more realistic choice .... just out of curiosity ???

    KA WAI can you mention an " ICON' that hasn't take a life of its own without all the ingredients you refer to ?
    She just performs a great job and carries it with absolute precision, she gives the photographers top value for their money ... it comes natural to her ... ! She can be Marilyn but a la MOSS , she can pose ' a la Dietrich ' but with that MOSS allure and tongue-in-cheek effect ...... we see ' Marilyn ' we see ' Dietrich' but in realty we just see that SHE IS KATE fooling us with great finesse .... just magic !.
    Please do tell us which model you believe can carry such visual performance with great ease and absolute conviction ?
    I think PARIS HILTON ( by the way an ' ICON ' fitted for a Jeff Koons'... 'masterpiece' ) must be full with admiration on Kate's status as an ICON .... of course PARIS status as an icon is just like one of those Jeff's ' pretty 'balloons .... full of inspiration ... but of the 'amusing' kind ..... :):)
    Until the new KATE appears on the scene .... KATE will be just the right choice for those who can chose freely from thousands of exquisitely beautiful and ' glamourous' .... ' models ' ... After all we all 'love' the scent of money ' ... or don't we ? .... so who would chose her if she is bound to disappoint the sales ???

    For this project of a la Marilyn Monroe, I thought the model could have been any lesser known. My thought when I saw it was Kate was that-"Again?" Galileo-back off a bit, everyone has their opinion when it comes to art and fashion. There's no right or wrong opinion in this department, and more power to Kate to have unbiased fans like you.

Yes there is no right or wrong opinion but you certainly seem to have a kind of NEGATIVE campaign going on in this forum about Kate Moss .... in any case that is the impression you do seem to give with great conviction ... as someone said she can never do right ... poor girl !
    Your ' back off ' expression ... sounds really rude, very rude coming from you, but then again you are just human ... if you cannot use real good convincing arguments then think twice before you post something because your emotional opinions will be certainly challenged .... and this is indeed a FREE forum so don't complaint if you don't particularly like any one's else opinion about your assumptions ..... because I'm sure many readers don't like yours that are more often than not unreasonable and to certain extent insulting ... so anyone could easily applied the same to you ...." -back off a bit "
    In the end you never mentioned who could do a better JOB for the shoot but then again we know the answer .. don't we ?

    Kate is a great model, I think I have seen too much of her. I think many models (Laetitia Casta just came to mind) could do just as well of a job, I know more people like to see Kate, I think to say Kate do a better job, it's personal preference, but it was a bit tiring to see Kate again.

    Galileo... The reason there are so many posts here is not Kate Moss, it is your little obsession with hitting back at every single comment made.
    To state that Moss carries out a job with "absolute precision" is a ridiculous overstatement if ever there was one. In the big scheme of things she is at best a delightful clothes hanger.
    I don't think you have given a good argument as to why she and her images are so important that you can't think of a single soul to replace her on the cover.
    How about putting Jordan Dunn on the cover. All on her own. There are not nearly enough black models around and she is a great choice.
    Or maybe go with the very talented up and coming young actresses- Andrea Riseborough or Rebecca Hall.
    Someone new, someone exciting, someone who has a talent beyond looking good in designer clothes and maybe even has something interesting to say! shocking isn't it.
    I want Hadley Freeman on the bloody cover- I would buy ten copies!
    This is not about Kate Moss. It's about people falling for the same thing over and over and over again. That's not magic. It's trickery.

    For Interview last issue, Now thinking about it, Amy Winehouse would have been much more interesting on the cover-she is very frank in interviews, not afraid to speak her thoughts, she is a fantastic singer who crosses genres of pop, torch lounge singer, soul, blues, jazz, and she is very interesting looking. I don't want to go into role model here, to me she is a great artist I would have loved to read an interview on her.

    " Galileo... The reason there are so many posts here is not Kate Moss, it is your little obsession with hitting back at every single comment made. "
    Merleu .... that may be so in your 'eyes' and ' wise' perception .... but it is obvious that you haven't taking the time to check the past comments post regarding Kate Moss long before I joined this forum ... nice try :):) .
    I just simply cannot understand Ka Wai's NEGATIVE obsession with Kate Moss ??? ... Even Nick Knight took once the time and the courtesy to explain to her " what kind of person she is " ... i think it is rather unreasonable to be hitting constantly at someone just because you want someone else on a cover of a magazine ... IT IS POINTLESS and ABSURD !. Yes talking about ' little' obsession ! Nice of you to come in her defence but please get the facts right when entering in an argument .
    " I don't think you have given a good argument as to why she and her images are so important that you can't think of a single soul to replace her on the cover. "
    If you care to digest my post CORRECTLY .... I'm referring to " SALES " ... do you understand that aspect of FASHION BUSINESS ? Isn't it a little naive to think that just because someone else can be on the cover except KATE MOSS, then that is the right choice ?.... I could say the same about so many 'uninspiring' models that I'm sure you would be happy to see ... but then again is it you being right because you have a different taste, choice ? .... read again it is all about SALES ! ... not pleasing your personal taste Merleau or Ka Wai's ... I could also say the same about your choice .... where is your convincing argument to use her ? ... there are millions of models who can replace her for a VOGUE's cover including Ka Wai's choice from China ... but then only the experts at VOGUE would know their business better ..... won't they ?
    "How about putting Jordan Dunn on the cover. All on her own. There are not nearly enough black models around and she is a great choice. " SO IT IS ABOUT RACE ... ? Ka Wai's 1st choice was from China so it must be about race ?
    " Andrea Riseborough or Rebecca Hall." ... your choice but I'm sure that many more viewers have their OWN choice ..... let's then write a letter to VOGUE with those suggestion !
    " This is not about Kate Moss. It's about people falling for the same thing over and over and over again. That's not magic. It's trickery. "
    It is " trickery " according to your perception and I'm sure you know the whole process so lets not waste time discussig "trickery" ... and indeed what is magic to you might be just " trickery " to others ... Your sense of interpreting views just opened my eyes indeed ! Let's burn Kate Moss ... she is so uninspiring after all to so many who do seem to buy the magazine with her image ... if just because seeing her makes our lives so terribly miserable and deprives us of having the model of our very own and particular preference ... :):) ... Perhaps VOGUE could start a new trend ... by placing inside cut-outs of the best "LOVED" models and then each fun could then stick her choice at the front ... and the world will certainly be a better place to live and then Merleau you don't have to worry then or Ka WAi about anyone challenging your views ... You call it hitting ... I call it " come up with a better argument " ... but then again your arguments are just based on what you think is better and according to your personal feelings ... mine are based mostly on that SALES decides .... and there she does indeed a GREAT JOB for VOGUE,however much you may want to disagree SALES is what matters to VOGUE or anyone who pays for KATE's work !
    Yes you would buy ten numbers .... but I' wondering what are you going to do with ten numbers ? ... Sounds weirdly OBSESSIVELY unhealthy passion for fashion to me ..... just curious !!
    As far as I'm concerned we could put horses on the cover ... or a dinosaur ... really who cares ? ... it is not as if life is going to end or is it Merleu ? :):)
    Just write to VIGUE and get on with it ... it is pointless to keep complaining and doing nothing about it !
    Over to you Merleau !

    Vogue must be putting Kate Moss on their front cover for a reason, and that reason has got to be that she sells more magazines than anyone else.

    Kate Moss Re-Created in Gold as Modern Aphrodite ! " ..... THE LARGEST GOLD STATUE CARVED BY MAN SINCE EGYPTIAN TIMES "
    PIC>:http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/1434205-kate-moss
    Yes the word ' SALE ' does seem to come up again ..... and again, all about INVESTMENT !
    -------------------
    Here continues the British obsession with Kate Moss: the British Museum has recreated her life-size likeness as the modern day Aphrodite carved out of gold with her legs tucked behind her head.
    The statue is made of 18 carat gold and finds its home in the midst of other statues of Greek goddesses.
    The likeness is so precise that its weight is comparable to that of its subject at about 50 kg. That officially makes it the largest gold statue carved by man since Egyptian times. It cost a whopping 1.5 million Pounds Sterling out of which 1 million was spent on the gold alone. But the investment should be worth it. It could fetch up to 10 million when it eventually goes on SALE .
    It required Moss to pose for a day though apparently not in the somewhat painful pose in which she is depicted.

    Hi Galileo,
    So, "Greed is good"?
    It's all about "SALES". How depressing.
    Your point seems to be forget beauty, forget aspiration, forget role models, forget intelligence, forget all other considerations EXCEPT sales. Sales is all that counts, don't complain about this just accept it!
    NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!!!!
    Sales is probably all that counts to Vogue but that's precisely its problem- compromising all integrity and value for sales and a quick buck. Prioritising money and profit is the hall mark of the worst aspects of culture -like the Spice Girls in music or High School Musical in film or any number of other execrable 'cultural' outputs that put making money before CONTENT.
    If thats the world you want to live in then good luck to you.
    For me and others here we'll keep challenging the status quo and promoting content over commerce.
    Kisses!xxxx

    " Your point seems to be forget beauty, forget aspiration, forget role models, forget intelligence, forget all other considerations EXCEPT sales. Sales is all that counts, don't complain about this just accept it!
    NO, NO, NO, NO!!!!!!! " .............. Now that is the spirit !... but then does VOGUE represent all that ? When I talk about VOGUE I'm not talking about a magazine with an Avant Garde spirit, whatever that means .... it is just a COMMERCE magazine .... read again PROFITS .... and for that particular magazine Kate is their choice, the public pays for the issue and she does a good job for then !! ... but attacking Kate is not going to solve anything .... but writing to VOGUE and voicing your distaste of whatever they do or whoever they put on the cover .... then we are talking !
    I don't think that the complainants were voicing their concern about more ' CULTURE ' ... were they ? .... they were just talking about " their favourite models " if they were free to choose ... so that KATE may take a walk !
    Now you ask.... the world I want to live in is a world were people would stop being so hypocritical and do more for the environment, human right's, women's rights, children right's, animal right's ......... far more urgent causes RIGHT NOW than being so superficial about their dislike of seeing KATE MOSS on the cover of a perfectly well known magazine and its aim in the matters of 'BEAUTY' !
    " For me and others here we'll keep challenging the status quo and promoting content over commerce. " ... And YES go for it !!! ........... and may I add for a better PLANET ! ...... and to become more generous towards our fellow human beings in everyday life ... JUST DO IT !
    And GOOD LUCK !

    galileo, man, your posts are so tiring I wonder why I'm still bothering.
    Let's give it one last shot.
    You keep ranting on about sales. Sales are determined by the public and the public is continuously brainwashed by advertising and the media.
    The public buys Kate Moss because it is repeatedly told to (by Vogue, by Grazia, by Nick Knight, by whoever). Convincing people like you that she is an inspirational icon. They are not really given another choice.
    As we blog, the media wheels are turning to bring Agnes Deyn to a similar status.
    To convince us all that Deyn is more than just a pretty, goofy, edgy breath of fresh air young model- she is a style icon in the making. She will be huge! important! You will see her on the cover and you will buy this now must have issue.
    When someone will dare say one day that there have been one too many covers with her face on them, they will be attacked by herds of fashion victims convinced that Agnes Deyn is some supreme being which must not be criticized.
    Someone like you will go on about SALES! and how Vogue just do what is right for the magazine.
    The reason for the rise and rise of the spoilt, talentless, son of x/daughter of x rich kids are the same magazines that so eagerly place Moss in every second issue.
    Because it is fashion and lighthearted any criticism thrown towards Moss and Alice Dellal and Alexa Chung and Agnes Deyn and Daisy Lowe etc' is greeted with contempt. As if the person just dosen't get that it's all about fun and beauty and fantasy and that's what people want it sells!! Don't spoil it.
    As an industry that influences millions of people and brings in billions of pounds every year it cannot be immune to criticism.
    These blogs (any blogs) are here for exactly that, so people can state their opinions regardless of Vogue sales.
    My opinion is that kate Moss may sell Vogue issues by the bucket load but at this point her image has been over exposed and recycled too many times.
    It is an easy choice for Vogue who would do a much better service in bringing a variety of women to the forefront - keeping the magazine fashionable and beautiful but also challenging and sophisticated.

    I often find many people who adore Kate Moss to be a bit obsessive. Their passion to defend her(she is a commercial commodity, even her name is registered trademark, like McDonald's, her face and image is a product, as any commercial products, are in the position to be critiqued)says volume about people and our society's attitude toward celebrities who are promoted, crafted, manipulated and created by tabloid magazines, fashion magazines, junk magazines. My mere statement at the beginning of this thread was referring to not Kate Moss looks of being "pretty, too pretty", but I was referring to the whole look, the whole package of the short film, and my other statements were still not about attacking Moss, if one reads carefully, it's my feelings about the media overusing her in order to sell. The media since the scandal, have and is still spinning the Kate Moss image in order to generate revenue-more power to them. I do think people have gotten a bit brain washed by the constant bombardment of Kate daily, on the internet, in almost every single junk magazine. If I criticize the over using of Kate, it's because I think the media is becoming very uncreative and limited. Although in our stark economy Kate is a safe bet to generate sales, there must be some actresses and entertainers, or even some other rising models, who really need the opportunity for more exposure, more so than Kate Moss does. It's interesting that my post from an earlier thread regarding photo shoot with Kate by Nick for Topshop premiere collection in UK Vogue would be read as a negative. I praised her work right from the start of the post, that photoshoot was really very well done, from Kate's body language to the small details of lighting, makeup and hair. It's just another proof of some people's obsession to select what they want to hear, their eyes go right to the negative as an instant reflex. I think it's pointless to win people's personal feelings over on this topic regarding Kate Moss, it's so individual, there's no right or wrong, it's a preference of taste and choice for a fashion cover, that's all, and if Galileo could critcize other people's choices, why other people can't criticize the use of Kate Moss? I think the artwork, the statue of Kate was a money and attention grabbing piece of work. That's just my personal feeling as soon as I saw the news of it the very first time.

    Yes we do have " HIGH MORALS " and HUGE words about ... art ... beauty ... style , but who are they kidding trying to teach others about their HIGHT and MIGHTY sense of WHO should be put on a cover of VOGUE ? yes that must be our sense of ' SOCIAL' responsibility ?

    In this bad economy, perhaps is a good time to explore new faces. Isabella Rossellini first got her big Vogue cover at the age of 28. She was just a reporter for Italian television station at the time, and was asked to do a cover shoot and then a new star was born. Sometimes magazines need to take more chances to spread the opportunities around more. There are 12 covers a year, at least 3 covers a year go to Kate Moss for the last 3 years, maybe 5 to 6 covers go to actresses, that only leaves 3 maybe 4 covers for new models. It's about sales, but sometimes it's about giving opportunities to newcomers as well, in order to create new interests, new blood, new trends. Even have Kate Moss do a cover with a lesser known model would immediately raise the profile of the the other model, and makes the cover look a little different and more interesting too-in my view.
