But Kate Moss has decided to pay tribute to the late designer the best way she knows how - by wearing one of his most iconic creations. A hologram of Moss flailing around like a ghostly apparition appeared on stage at the climax of the March show at Paris Fashion Week. McQueen projected the image on the stage in tribute to Moss, who was then lying low after being caught in a cocaine scandal six months earlier. And the supermodel was given the chance to return the favour in the new issue of Harper's Bazaar magazine. On the cover of the glossy, Moss also wears a white McQueen creation by the label's head designer Sarah Burton, who took over from Lee McQueen after his death. She recalls first meeting McQueen.
Set in the Northern English countryside — where Creative Director Sarah Burton grew up — photographer Jamie Hawkesworth captures Kate Moss in an industrial mill and its surrounding gardens. Burton draws upon this quintessentially British landscape throughout the collection, taking inspiration from the moody blooms and fabric mill machinery that she associates with her hometown. From fuchsia petal sleeves paired with punk jewelry to slick power suits styled with heavy-duty boots, Burton continues to play with juxtaposition. In a bid to upcycle and explore new forms of craft, the designer also included embellishments created from remnants and scraps found on the factory floor. For the standout look of the campaign, Moss sports an oversized silk taffeta red dress that is puffed and gathered into a floral form.
Is that you, Kate? Kate Moss seems determined to show she is far from past it at 40 with yet another stunning fashion campaign. The supermodel has been announced as the new face of fashion brand Alexander McQueen, four years after the designer's tragic death. Surprisingly, despite appearing in numerous McQueen fashion shows and her close friendship with the much-admired man behind the label, this is the first time she has fronted a campaign for the brand. The striking pictures show Kate with a dramatic, orange-gold crop, luminescent skin and bleached out eyebrows and lashes. The model, not usually known for her heaving bosom, also shows off some pretty impressive cleavage - perhaps thanks to the push-up leather bralet she wears in many of the images.
The Kate Moss hologram was a dramatic and emotional finale to the Paris show, with the ethereal figure of Moss shown floating inside a giant pyramid, set to the poignant soundtrack from Schindler's List. McQueen was renowned for his catwalk show theatrics and also his love of exploring new technology, though this particular work was created using the Victorian parlour trick Pepper's Ghost. It was ambitious and exciting and totally creative. This was essentially surveying, so we could check virtually every field of view to see that it would work from all angles and where we could put the screens and projectors. Working closely with Joseph, we made sure everything was not only aesthetically correct but technically too.
