    I would of preferred a full face. But the 'muscle tissue side' gives it a lot more edge.

    That's not a new shot, is it? I think that's a shot from an old W editorial.

    This is really an eye-catching image. You can't miss it, even if you don't know that it's Kate the picture just calls to you.

    Looks like it. And if we're talking about the same thing, it was the cover and she either had yellow or gold on with bright pink letters...

    Thats not the point. Even the publisher himself says that the magazine is not a fashion magazine. In the article, they discuss the use of retouching and how it makes women unrecognizable. By using a photo that has been shot for the purpose of being in a magazine and being retouched, they are illuminating the artifice of those very images.

    ^It wasn't a criticism just a genuine question.

    what's so strange about Manuva's comment? Damien Hirst coulde have shot Kate herself for his artwork... ( in this case he didn't obviously)

    Kate Moss... Damien Hirst... Moss as artist's muse... Hirst reprising something about flesh that simply calls on our instinctive reaction to the sight of such things, then people adding a layer of pseudo-intellectualism on the lazy process in order to be part of the art club.

    IS THERE NOTHING NEW IN THIS WORLD?

    Pieces of 'art' in museums and magazines that have riffed on the image of Ms Moss are numerous, and this is the worst I've seen so far. And I also can't look at the cover shot without recalling W and thinking fondly of that issue.

    Weirdest cover reprint ever, I'll give it that.

    Thank you for seeing that Manuva :flower: The image is from March 2005 by Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin. Damien Hirst used the image to make his painting.

    I don't mean to be so hard on the magazine - it has to sell itself somehow - and why not combine the populism of Kate Moss with their own arty agenda, but reading that press release...
