Baring all: undiscovered Kate Moss revealed in new Mario Sorrenti book

The portfolio includes never-before-published 1990s images of future supermodel Kate Moss Mario Sorrenti

Is there anything left to reveal of the supermodel Kate Moss? Apparently so, if a new publication by Phaidon is anything to go by. The lavish tome, titled Kate, will include “never-before-published portraits of a young and undiscovered Kate Moss taken in the early 1990s by her then boyfriend, the Italian photographer Mario Sorrenti”, says the blurb. The glossy pics inspired the famous 1993 campaign for Calvin Klein’s Obsession fragrance. “She’s definitely a magical person, and at the time she didn’t even know it,” Sorrenti once said. The portfolio, planned for release this autumn, will cost £75.
