Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Carolyn Bessette and John F. Kennedy Jr. Jennifer and Brad. Justin and Britney. Though there are quite a few couples from yesteryear that history cannot help but mourn, perhaps none are more editorially ironic nor on better terms than Kate Moss and Mario Sorrenti.
The pair famously met at a modeling job in London in 1991. “I remember sitting next to her and feeling like my heart was going to stop; her beauty overwhelmed me,” said Sorrenti, and were together for the early, breakthrough moments in both their career. The images by Sorrenti, who would later become one of fashion’s most iconic photographers, captured of his then-girlfriend became the reference for Calvin Klein’s 1993 Obsession perfume campaign, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Now, a new book released by the CR collaborator with Phaidon, “Kate,” features a rare 50-image series of never-before-published photographs taken just before Moss’ rise to fame. Vulnerable and impossible to look away from, the photos, which were edited by Sorrenti with Dennis Freedman, show a 17-year-old, softer side of the waif-thin star the fashion world has been enumerated with for decades.
Placed inside a clamshell box cover, “Kate” is truly an obsession.
“Kate By Mario Sorrenti” is available online now.END
