This September, Christie’s in London will host “Kate Moss–The Collection–Curated by Gert Elfering.” The sale will present “works in various media celebrating the great modern muse Kate Moss,” including pieces by Annie Liebovitz, Juergen Teller, Mario Testino, Ellen von Unwerth and a “specially commissioned” tapestry by Chuck Close.

Gert Elfering says: “There is so much you can learn from Kate—how you should always remain true to yourself, develop your own style, and [emphasize] your individuality.”

Me at 17, who almost got killed by a cab crossing Houston Street because he was staring at a giant billboard of Kate Moss in a Calvin Klein ad instead of paying attention to his surroundings, was not available for comment.
