While you’d be forgiven for thinking that the Hadid sisters and Kendall Jenner are the only models in the entire world, at 43 Kate Moss is proving that she’s still ‘it’ when it comes to the modelling arena.
Almost 30 years after her first cover shoot, she joins fellow household names of Jennifer Lopez, Donatella Versace, Taraji P. Henson, and Jessica Chastain in a W Magazine cover that is a tribute to powerful women. Along with an in-depth interview with Moss, you can see the screen tests for the five women here.
In the online cover, W scribe Lynn Hirschberg, writes, “Initially, Klein wasn’t sure about Moss. She isn’t your typical model: She’s five foot seven (short by industry standards), and she’s somewhat bowlegged.
“In fact, when Moss was discovered at 14 by the modeling agent Sarah Doukas at a New York airport, her mother was shocked that anyone would want her daughter to pose for pictures.
“Despite having been photographed countless times in her long (and still major!) career, Moss has remained a chameleon… In this W shoot, saw her as confident, strong, and, yes, proudly naked at age 43.”
