Kate Moss is notorious for many things, among which is rarely ever speaking in front of a camera and being extra guarded about her personal life. So it’s a surprise to see her do exactly that in an interview conducted by famed fashion photographer Nick Knight on SHOWstudio, the go-to place online for all things fashion and film. The interview is part of an ongoing series called Subjective where Knight is presenting the history of contemporary fashion photography through the perspectives of top models. You can tell just how unused to speaking on-camera Moss is by the way she fidgets with her rings, keeps on her sunglasses and clutches a glass of red wine. She and Knight still manage to have a fascinating conversation about the early days of her career, from her 1990 The Face cover which was shot by Corinne Day who introduced then-15-year-old Moss to London’s nightlife to being pinned to the center of the waif and heroin chic movement in fashion. “I think I was just really young and thin,” Moss explains. “Of course, I was working in fashion. Back in the day, they didn’t feed you. The jobs I was doing didn’t have catering…. I’m a fabulous scapegoat. They’ll still use me, people.” Watch Moss’ endearing interview above—who knows how long it will be until she does another.
