Kate Moss, a la Herb Ritts

The sexy Kate Moss shoot in Vogue Hommes International made me think of the late photographer Herb Ritts.

Ritts was responsible for some of the most iconic supermodel images; his work with Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell made them look like Greek goddesses. It's funny, because Kate Moss isn't what you'd call a Herb Ritts girl: she hasn't the Amazonian presence or powerful features of a Tatjana Patitz or Stephanie Seymour. And yet, it's a testament to her skill as a model - as well as that of photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin - that they managed to pull off a pretty good HR homage, even managing to bring a little something original of their own to the table.
