Vintage Kate Moss

Kate Moss Castaway

Kate Moss Vintage

Editorials don’t get much hotter than this vintage castaway shoot featuring the fabulous Kate Moss, so I’m going to make this brief.

Shot back in 2002 for UK Vogue, photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott captured Miss Moss at what I think was the peak of her hotness. Faded colours and salvaged materials were combined to create a deserted island vibe that set off the deep tan of Kate’s bare skin. This is the darkest I have seen her and it looks surprisingly natural with her sun-kissed hair – which is a perfect example of how balayage should be done this season. But before you go calling your spray tan lady asking for the darkest shade, there’s one little thing you need to remember. Fake tans this dark may look great on film, but that doesn’t mean they work in real life. Take my advice and save it for a photo shoot.
