Kate Moss is the new face of Skims
Skims is now model approved with the release of its latest campaign. On Tuesday, Kim Kardashian revealed that Kate Moss is the new face of her solutionswear brand. The imagery, photographed by Donna Trope, shows Moss wearing the Skims bralette and ribbed cotton briefs in Bone color, as well as a pair of shapewear shorts, the Fits Everybody triangle bralette and matching briefs in black.
“I first met Kate in 2014 through [Riccardo] Tisci “, Kardashian said on Twitter. “And I was immediately struck by her cheeky humor, her authentic, classic beauty – we’ve been friends ever since!”
That’s right: Kardashian and Moss were recently spotted touring the Vatican on a trip to Rome in June. Additionally, some internet research shows that the two may have originally crossed paths at Tisci’s 40th birthday party, which took place in August in Ibiza and included famous guests such as Naomi Campbell, Kanye West, Paris Hilton and Justin Bieber. At the time, Tisci was Creative Director at Givenchy (he now stars at Burberry) and dressed Kardsahian for his wedding to West, which took place in May 2014. The rapper even performed for Tisci at the party. starry.
Moss’s campaign for Skims comes on the heels of one of the brand’s biggest launches to date – dressing the U.S. team for their off-duty hours during the Summer Olympics in Tokyo. The collection, which is available now, includes underwear, pajamas and loungewear.
Skims is no stranger to having some of the biggest celebrity models in her campaigns, including Addison Rae, Paris Hilton and, of course, Kardashian herself. But none come close to Moss, whose co-signer officially gives Skims the haute couture seal of approval. “She is the fashion icon, defining a whole generation of style and I am honored to introduce her as the new face of @SKIMS this summer!” Kardasian continued on Twitter.
“I have been a Skims fan since day one,” Moss said in an official statement. “What Kim does with the brand is so fresh and modern, what women really want underwear that fits them perfectly: I wear them, my daughter wears them – even my mom wears them!”
