Call an exorcist, quick! Kate Moss looks like you’ve never seen her before in a hair-raising portrayal of “good and evil” on two covers of W magazine, and we’ve been in an endless loop of scared yet captivated since seeing them.
Shot by Steven Klein and styled by Edward Enniful, W’s Will Self describes “Evil Moss,” who dons black leather and devil horns (potential Halloween costume idea?) as having lips that are “no rosebud but a crushed carnation, her cheekbones somehow performing the alien accomplishment of curving down to below its petals.” Uh, sexy?
However, Saint Kate couldn’t look more picturesque in lacey-white Vera Wang and Erdem numbers. Evil Moss (who slightly resembles the nightmare-inducing girl in The Exorcist) also makes an appearance in white, wearing a hauntingly beautiful Jil Sander dress which we love—and not only for its ability to take the focus off her demon face.
We imagine that it was probably challenging to turn the flawless model into a monster, but her convincing performance makes us think she should star in a horror movie! What do you think of the photos?
Fashionista: “Bad Kate, […] looks a little like Lady Gaga circa her face implant stage. Creepy.” [Fashionista]
Styleite: “How have we never before noticed that “alien accomplishment” of her cheekbones? Amen.” [Styleite]
Huffington Post: “Her eyes look ghostly, and she’s gotten the Lady Gaga “face horns” treatment through either prosthetics or some super-creepy Photoshopping. Yikes! We wouldn’t want to run into that Kate in an empty church.” [Huffington Post]
Nicole Stafford, photo editor: “Kate Moss never ceases to make a captivating photo even after 20 years as a model. I enjoy the rawness of these images, especially her crooked clustery teeth, even though I’m sure these images have probably still been retouched extensively. My only question is, is anyone else as sick of the whole biblical/gothic good/bad girl theme? Are they trying to be provocative?”
