Hedi Slimane Shoots Kate Moss for International Women's Day

In honor of International Women's Day, Hedi Slimane has photographed a series of nudes of Kate Moss titled "Liberation". I LOVE all of these shots - I am speechless by the beauty of every photograph and the vison which is the Hedi Slimane aesthetic. I would expect nothing less from Hedi. I believe that this is going to be the year of a resurgence to prominence and pop culture relevance for Kate Moss (see Kate for YSL in my previous entries). The concept of shooting a supermodel for an International Women's Day exhibit is brilliant - the juxtaposition of these two antithetical concepts, women's liberation and supermodels and the stigma associated with the modelling industry, forces the viewer to really think about the context and to think about how much women have accomplished. Kate Moss is truly a brand to be reckoned with and she epitomizes the concept of the liberated woman in today's world. Kate is the ultimate femme fatale and she never ceases to amaze me with her innovative and creative endeavors.

Yay to Hedi Slimane and Kate Moss for showing the world true "Liberation"!!!!
