Kate Moss has been a favourite paparazzi target for decades. And while she's always approached them with the mysterious indifference she reserves for much of the media, even she has limits. When Kate's close friend and frequent collaborator Nick Knight saw footage of a pack of 20 male paparazzi descend on Kate and her 13-year-old daughter Lila Grace at LAX airport he felt compelled to take a stand on how they treat her. On the photographer explained, "I wanted to make a T-shirt that would give her some way of speaking her mind."

The result is the ANTI-T-SHIRT, a garment "for any occasion when you need to speak your mind directly and powerfully." At first glance it's a pretty regular black tee. But when photographed under blinding paparazzi flashes, their light reveals a hidden message: "FUCK YOU CUNT." Going by Kate's artful use of profanity in her new Calvin Klein campaign clip, we wonder if she helped with the copy writing.
