Shots of the 37-year-old supermodel feature in a showcase of pictures taken by some of the world’s most famous photographers – including Mary McCartney, the late Corinne Day and Paolo Roversi – currently on display at Paris’ Galerie de L’Instant.
However, it is not just the aesthetic beauty of Kate which is captured in the photos, but also her “intelligence”.
A spokesperson for the gallery said: “Kate is one of the most photographed people in the world, and yet she continues to fascinate and inspire. The exhibition is a homage, not only to Kate’s beauty but also her intelligence.”
Among the highlights are a nude picture – taken by Corinne Day – of Kate wearing nothing but a soldier’s tin hat, as well as the model backstage at a Chloe show in 1995.
The spokesperson added: “Despite a lack of interviews and a few scandals, Kate Moss’ career has been a success and has set an example. She has inspired the biggest photographers of every generation as well as contemporary artists including Lucian Freud, Marc Quinn, Sam Taylor Wood.
“It is therefore only fair that we dedicate an exhibition to her, as her work with photographers has been so rich and varied.”
‘Kate Moss by the Biggest Photographers’ – which runs from now until September 14 – was originally scheduled to open in November 2008, but it kept getting put back due to lack of funding.
