“There is only one Kate in London” some would say. This slogan was born to celebrate her, the one and only Kate Moss. But for a while you can say "There is only one Kate in Bologna", because, if you are among the many worshipers of the fascinating model, an unmissable event concerning her is awaited in this city.
Very shortly, from 13 March to 1 May 2014, the exhibition "Kate Moss: The Icon"At the prestigious Ono Gallery di Bologna. This particular gallery, dedicated to contemporary art in the most varied forms, is located in the heart of the center of Bologna, a few steps from Piazza Maggiore, precisely in Via Santa Margherita 10.
More than 50 incredible shots will tell the queen of everything cool, an often controversial icon that has become a real cultural phenomenon over the years. Kate who, despite that eternal girlish air, turned 40 on January 16, has never ceased to amaze, posing, drawing, inspiring and even singing. His performance as a lap dancer in the splendid video of the White Stripes "I just don't know what to do with myself".
Woman capable of conquering the greatest stylists, from John Galliano to Alexander McQueen, appeared on more than three hundred covers, and able to always live on the thin line of all that is excess.
She is the absolute icon of fashion, perhaps the most famous top model in the world, and for this very reason the famous "Playboy" wanted, for the January special edition that celebrated the 70th anniversary of the magazine, only her, Kate . It was a certain Sarah Doukas, creator of the Storm agency, who launched it at the age of 14 in 1988. Kate Moss is a particular type of beauty, archetypal of a generation, who contrasted her naive girl's smile with that unkempt look born in the grunge culture.
And, if the subject were not enough to attract the public, there are also the famous photographers who have had the pleasure of portraying her and thus documenting her splendid career, from David Ross to Chris Levine, from Jurgen Ostarhild to Roxanne Lowit, from Satoshi Saikusa to Albert Watson.
And, hear and rejoice, the entrance to this unique exhibit will be free. It will only be open for a month and a half so hurry up.
