Note: mild nudity ahead
Kate Moss is on the cover of Next Liberation -- for the third time in three years -- for good reason, says the editorial.
Kate is the poster or icon of modernity, a frozen idol able to adapt and untiringly project herself on the immense and complex screen of universal fantasies. British photographer Sam Taylor captures the essence of Kate's duality in a metaphor-rich fashion editorial that taps into a growing intellectual discussion about animals
Moss is admired because she cultivates her persona in a casual, offhand manner, writes Next Liberation. Her ability to not wind herself in knots for our cultural consumption but instead remain true to Kate, makes her one of the most formidable icons in the world.
Of course, Kate Moss has a penchant for rock musicians, but the truth is she can have just about any man. She can -- writes Next Liberation -- marry a prince if she choose -- becoming suddenly respectable and not so edgy, if she chooses.
Bottom line, Kate Moss is in charge of Kate and also her body, which is frequently photographed nude. On a fashion editorial note, it seems that fashion will be making animal goddesses of women in the coming months. That puts us all together in fighting in celebrating, not condemning women's 'animal natures' or lesser beings, as Aristotle considered women.
We are certain that a new evolution of female imagery in fashion is taking place -- at least in Europe. It's the essence of our writing at Anne of Carversville, most recently with In Life and Death, Orangutans Find Humans Fascinating and Returning Ancient Greek 'Person' Status to Dolphins.
