Pieces to a Puzzle

Modelling icon Kate Moss adds another feather to her well-trimmed hat with her Marilyn Monroesque turn on the cover of Vanity Fair's December 2012 issue. The 38 year old is captured by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott wearing a blonde wig and little much else. Moss, who remains one of the most elusive figures in modelling in spite of almost 25 years in the industry, opens up to Vanity Fair about motherhood, marriage, her past relationship with Johnny Depp and controversies which have helped to fuel her illustrious modelling career. Moss may be the seasoned professional these days, capable of fulfilling any editorial brief, however this wasn't always the case as Moss reveals to Vanity Fair's James Fox when recalling her early modelling days and that 1992 Calvin Klein shoot with Marky Mark which catapulted her into the public's consciousness. Moss details "I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go out and work with Marky Mark and Herb Ritts. It didn't feel like me at all. I felt really bad about straddling this really buff guy. I didn't like it. I couldn't get out of bed for two weeks. I thought I was going to die. I went to the doctor, and he said 'I'll give you some Valium,' and Francesca Sorrenti, thank God, said, 'You're not taking that." It was just anxiety. Nobody takes care of you mentally. There's a massive pressure to do what you have to do. I was really little, and I was going to work with Steven Meisel. It was just really weird - a stretch limo coming to pick you up from work. I didn't like it. But it was work, and I had to do it."
