Kate Moss has graced countless covers of Vogue over the years, including the most important issue of the year in September. This year though it’s her cover for Esquire that has really caught our eye, dressed in a white tuxedo blazer and jewelled bodysuit. It is 17 years since Moss last fronted a men’s title, posing for Arena and photographer Craig McDean in 1996. To put that in context the Spice Girls were about to hit the big time and Prince William was just 14 years old.
This time around she is the face of Esquire’s Best of British issue, and editor Alex Bilmes is more than chuffed to have stolen her away from the women’s glossies. Of the cover star he said, “For too long Kate has been monopolised by women’s fashion magazines so I am thrilled that we’ve persuaded her to front our special issue dedicated to this country’s most stylish people and products. I really can’t imagine anyone better suited to the job.” We couldn’t agree more.
