Vogue Paris is celebrating 20 Vogue Covers with the legendary Kate Moss. 

With lips slightly open and hair brushed back, Kate Moss posed for Michael Thompson on the October 1997 cover of Vogue Paris.


One of my favorite Vogue covers, and one of my favorite pictures of Kate Moss.

 After shooting almost all the covers for Vogue Paris in 1998 and 1999, Mario Testino dedicated himself to his own work in 2000, and didn't return to Vogue until February 2001. He chose Kate Moss to play a platinum blonde femme-enfant on one of the covers for this issue.


For her fifth cover with Mario TestinoKate Moss wore a Gucci fox fur and organza shawl coat, over a Nike cotton sports bra, in a sporty-chic look was created in honor of the Olympic Games held in Athens that year. The Peruvian photographer signed almost all of the fashion editorials in this issue of Vogue Paris.


I still have this issue somewhere in the dark corners of my bedroom. 
The close friends and fellow supermodels teamed up for this beautifully diverse cover. 

For Vogue Paris February 2008, the magazine chose Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell to pose for the cover. The supermodel friends known for their party girl London lifestyles, wore Louis Vuitton to star in this special Bad Girls issue, in a black and white photo shoot by Mario Testino.


Kate Moss played Brigitte Bardot on a Harley Davidson, for the April 2008 cover. In jean shorts and a leather jacket, the top model exuded extreme sensuality in the Inez & Vinoodh shot from the Sur La Route editorial.


A few weeks after making her big comeback by closing the Louis Vuitton Fall/Winter 2011-2012 show in Paris, Kate Moss poses in front of a red, somber screen for Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. Our all-time favorite cover girl appeared on the May 2011 Vogue Paris cover with male hands pulling on her sparkling embroidered Armani Privé jacket. The supermodel appeared again a few pages later, in an editorial featuring  the best of Spring/Summer 2011 haute couture.


With her own name pendant, Kate brought a touch of irony to the June/July 2012 Vogue Paris cover, in a barefoot shot by Mario Sorrenti. Posing as a retro mermaid under the searing sun, the instantly recognizable Kate keeps cool by her aquatic surroundings
