Double Trouble

Back in the day when supermodel tag was reserved for a select group of women whose incredulous beauty and presence commanded the undivided attention of the fashion industry. Amongst this motley crew of gorgeous muses were two young Brits, otherwise known as Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, who marched to the beat of their very own drum. Moss and Campbell have been in the modelling spotlight for close to three decades and the public's fascination with the pair continues with no signs of abating. Moss was discovered in 1988 at age 14 by Storm Model Managements Sarah Doukas while in transit at JFK airport. Campbell was similarly scouted at the precocious age of 15 by Beth Boldt of Synchro Model during a shopping expedition in Covent Garden. Campbell and Moss would go on to become two of the most celebrated models in history, appearing on countless magazine covers, in campaigns for every conceivable high fashion label, and posing together for publications including  American Harpers Bazaar, i-D Magazine and various international editions of Vogue.

Interview Russia reunites the dastardly duo for its December 2012 issue shot by boy wonders Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. The dramatic black and white imagery encapsulates the timeless and mesmerising beauty of Moss and Campbell as they don looks from the Spring/Summer 2013 collections of Saint Laurent, Gucci and Costume National. The editorial serves as a reminder of an era when models were truly super and not simply a dispensable commodity at the beck and call of an industry which benefits from the ephemeral star quality of the current generation of modelling hopefuls.
