TVF coproduction

Kate Moss – idol of an entire generation. No other supermodel has graced the covers of so many different magazines, appeared so often in the headlines, or attracted such legions of male and female fans.

Designers from all the big labels compete for her. Whether Versace, Gucci, Dior, Cavalli, Chanel, or Yves Saint Laurent: any firm represented by Kate Moss enjoys uninterrupted sales. From superstar Damien Hirst to painter legend Lucian Freud, artists young and old cannot escape from her spell, and their works have contributed to her ever-growing iconic status. But what is it that makes an icon? How does a woman like Kate Moss come to be worshipped by an entire generation?

Kate! The Making of an Icon is the first documentary to trace her iconic status to its origins. Shot in New York, London, Paris, Milan, Beijing, Zürich and Berlin, the film features exclusive interviews with Vivienne Westwood, renowned English fashion journalist Colin Mc Dowell, fashion photographers Peter Lindbergh and Albert Watson, famous US artist Chuck Close, Zürich-based artist Daniele Buetti known for his ‘injured fashion photos’, the general manager of YSL Renaud Le Lesquen and filmmaker Mike Figgis. Other interviewees include art collector Christian Boros, Metropolitan museum curator Kohle Yohannen, and Christies contemporary art expert Jean-Paul Engelen.
