£50 in the shops, £32.50 on Amazon with free delivery it is a huge difference to me. I got the cover with her sitting with black dress on, that is either M&M or Lamsweerde? copy is immaculate and sealed tight.

They want £165 from me.... For that price I could fly to the UK, buy it and fly home again and still save money.

I know but bookstores here do tend to bump up the prices so I don't want to be shocked with how much it will be. Prices even vary from bookstore to bookstore.

^Those were her 'Steven Meisel/Kevyn Aucoin' eyebrows, as she nicknamed them... I was never keen either.

With bone-structure like that you don't really need eyebrows That's why she looks so mesmerizing/alien-like with bleached brows in my opinion.

Kate with Audrey Hepburns caterpillar brows would have been a scary sight

Overall it is a must for any fan of Kate's, I did have my hopes set on receiving either the M&M cover or the David Sims version, but in the end I'm not that bothered because it is still immaculately presented and the book is a testament to her outstanding career, she's no longer considered a model, she's an icon, when I think of Kate I think of a quote Philip Treacy once said 'She's the modern day Marilyn Monroe' and she is, if not better.

To this day I can't fathom why I find Kate so fascinating and I doubt I ever will. Help me please

The book doesn't really feature much of her early work, it's more her work post 1990's, but since her career spans for almost 20 years or so it must have been very difficult to collate images from every corner of her career but they did a damn good job at including some of her most iconic, well what I would of considered iconic from her career.
I'm so confused. Is this the book that had multiple cover shots of Kate. Who's the actual author Kate or ??? There are so many Kate books I don't know which one I'm getting.
