    Who are/were the great photographers muses?
    Does anyone have any information about their working/personal relationships?

    Don't know is she muse or not but Kate Moss is usually working with Mert & Marcus, Mario Testino & Nick Knight.

    And last time Daria often works with Inez & Vinoodh.

    I think all the listed models & photographers have good relationship. If they didn't have they wouldn't feel comfortable during shooting and couldn't make good shots.

    I think Catherine McNeil is one of Mario Testino's muses. He discovered her (from what I've read)

    Natalia Vodianova was often photographed by Annie Liebowitz(sp?), but I don't know if Natalia was actually Annie's muse or not.

    ^I would say that Claudia Schiffer is Largerfeld's muse. He's been photographing her since circa 1990. And of course she was his muse at Chanel during the 90s.
