Kate Moss Discusses Her 90s Calvin Klein Obsession Ads


Kate Moss's 90s Calvin Klein 'Obession' ads are still some of the most memorable and iconic fashion images of all time. Captured by her then-boyfriend and photographer Mario Sorrenti, the photographs had a stunning simplicity - snapped in black & white - that captured the British model's raw beauty. 

Kate has commented on capturing the images at the time, explaining that Calvin just saw some holiday photographs and wanted to recreate that mood: “Calvin saw Mario’s book and it was all pictures of me on holiday, and he was like, ‘Great, I can see it’s an obsession,’ and he saw it, and it was obsession. I would wake up in the morning and he would be like taking pictures of me, and I’d be like, ‘Fuck off.’” 

 Kate says that she split from Sorrenti soon after: “We split up after that. Now I understand that kind of thing a bit better, capturing an image and working, doing those things, but at the time I was 17.”

Karlie Kloss Talks Business and Career Plans


American model Karlie Kloss recently made several appearances at Cannes Film Festival as part of her role as L’Oréal spokesperson. The model explains that the event was very busy for her because she had many duties to perform: “This is my first official year as a L’Oréal spokesperson, so it’s been a busy week with shooting commercials, walking red carpets, going to fabulous parties.” 

Speaking on her Karlie's Kookies business, the model says she hopes she can grow it to become even bigger: “Yes, I want to grow it bigger. We are in the works of figuring out how to make it into a proper business. My sister has celiac [disease] – that’s the reason why I started baking gluten-free [and vegan]. Because it’s tough to find a good-tasting cookie without gluten. They are all very dry, but it’s actually more fun to cook without butter and sugar, it’s like a science experiment, and I am a closeted nerd at heart.” 

 She has no plans to retire and says she is just getting started because she aspires to be like other models who have grown their own companies: “Nooo. I’m 22, I’m just getting started. Role models of mine like Christy Turlington or Cindy Crawford, they work even today after incredible careers — and kids. I want to do this job for a very long time, but I see education as a way to invest in myself, and diversify and be able to think about how to go much further.”
