The Kates and Alexander McQueen
Alexander McQueen has released new ad shot by Steven Klein and featuring Kate Moss. Watch it. And if that was the only exposure you’d ever had to the label, would you ever guess that that was where Katy Cambridge’s wedding dress came from?
A reader called Tania just emailed suggesting that there’s a lot of Tilda Swinton happening here in Kate’s styling. Yes. Totally. And some Angelina Jolie Maleficent cheekbones too.
So Kate’s on a dark, dank street. She’s being watched. She’s being targeted. She knows. So she leads her stalker into her flat. And we’re supposed to be afraid. Or are we? Because she doesn’t seem afraid at all. Tania asked me if I think she’s being attacked at the end.
I guess it’s open to interpretation. When we are photographed, are we being attacked? Or are they suggesting that it’s a combination of attack and want? That’s the dilemma of attention, isn’t it? You don’t want it…but you kinda do. This is the blurry line then, especially as it relates to celebrity. That’s how I’m seeing it. How are you?
