Kate Moss’ latest incarnation – fashion editor for British Vogue – came of age today, when images from her first shoot behind the camera were released in the runup to the March issue of the magazine hitting the shelves.

Moss has been working with longtime collaborators Mert + Marcus as photographers, and with insider favourite Daria Werbowy as model: all the components are in place for a Fashion Moment. The result of this alpha alliance emerges with Moss’s influence at the fore: her signature rockn’roll aesthetic is riding high.

Werbowy is almost unrecognisable too. The Vogue regular is usually seen as a natural beauty – in Céline’s advertising, she looks makeup-free, as she is on the cover of this issue of Vogue – but in this shoot she’s dressed in an LBD, fishnet tights and lashings of eyeliner with a bright orange wig. With Werbowy sitting at the wheel of what looks like a Cadillac, in the woods at dusk, the mood of the shoot is a bit Americana, a misfit on the run. And her pose is all limbs – one you could imagine Moss herself affecting.

It recalls shoots from the Face magazine in around 1994 – the same year as Natural Born Killers, with its fugitive-chic icon, Juliette Lewis, came out. Moss would have starred in them then. Now she’s handing over the baton. This is a starter before the Moss main course, but it’s safe to say all the ingredients are in place.
