i-D invited seventeen of Kate Moss’s friends, fans and colleagues from over the years to ask their favourite catwalk queen a question of their choice. Happy 40th Birthday Kate!
Impossibly beautiful and implausibly well known, from storming catwalks across the globe to countless magazine editorials, and a party life to put even the most hardcore amongst us to shame, Kate Moss needs little introduction. With her Topshop range (returning April 2014) causing havoc on the high street, and an army of Moss lookalikes fast springing up in its wake, i-D has invited seventeen of Kate Moss’s friends, fans and collegues from over the years to ask their favourite catwalk queen a question of their choice. From her favourite underwear, to her blossoming singing career (to what she sees last when she closes her eyes), enter the world of Miss Moss. i-Con. Goddess. WE LOVE YOU, KATE. Always. Forever. Amen. X
