Also we've been worried about Kate Moss and her growing attachment to the Libertines' Pete Doherty, whose fascination with crack has emperiled our heroine and her beloved baby by Jefferson Hack.
Katherine Kendall's book doesn't find the space to cover these latest debelopments, but with a figure so stylish and dynamic as Kate Moss, it would be hard to write a book that could keep itself up-to-date--maybe regular CD-ROM supplements would do the trick? I liked the way she wrote about Kate Moss posing for Lucien Freud, it shows that she has a brain too, not just an appetite for sensation as a result of being brought up in a overly restictive family that would not allow her sweets. Kate Moss has had to battle a lot of problems, including the bad press engendered by her rampages through hotels during the Johnny Depp days, and people feeling that she has no talent, and the rumors about bulimia and anorexia, and yet every time she gets written off, she bounces right back looking prettier than ever! In our crowd, we consider her the Babe Paley of the 21st Century, than which there is no higher compliment.
And her little daughter, Lila Grace, is so cute. There are some good snaps of her in the Kendall book.
Yes, the book is filled with re-cycled interviews and other sources, but it isn't all that bad.
Perhaps next Katherine Kendall could write a book about the British actress slash comedienne Kay Kendall, whg was Kate Moss' spiritual ancestor back in the 1950s. Trivia--did you know that Kate has appeared in ten films--always as "Herself"? What other star can boast such a high ratio of appearances as herself?
Readers will get a great deal of satisfaction from this book.
Please! First of all, this is a very small book, just shy over 100 pages of actual writing. The rest of the pages are poor quality B&W pictures, and a huge section in the back of "notes," and a bibliography.
After finishing this book in one sitting, I had learned nothing new about Kate Moss. Every bit of information in this book is taken from old interviews Kate, Johnny Depp, and others, had done for different magazines.
I think this book was a waste of money, and is not worth it at all, not even for a die-hard fan.
