Vogue UK Picks Kate Moss As Cover Girl, Steals Vogue US’ Thunder
Whoa, did Vogue UK totally just cross Anna Wintour and the American Voguettes? Judging by its August cover, the answer could be yes.
As we reported, Kate Moss is set to cover the all-important September issue of American Vogue. From what we gather, Mario Testino shot the supermodel’s wedding festivities, which serve as the backdrop for the editorial. But Vogue UK just released images from its August issue, and Moss is the cover girl! Shot by Testino! With the text “Meet Mrs. Jamie Hince” beside her!
Okay, so obviously Moss isn’t the craziest choice of cover model. She’s always a solid pick, and of course British Vogue is going to want the British model to be on its cover around the time of her British wedding. And while Testino shot Moss for both publications, he like Moss is a classic choice (plus, the Vogue UK shoot clearly went down prior to the nuptials). But still, it’s a bit bit thunder-stealing!
Anyway, the cover is lovely, with Moss all done up in a Miu Miu dress and retro hair and makeup. Alas, we can’t help but wonder what Anna thinks.
