Kate Moss at The Ritz, Paris

This is what happens when Kate Moss, Vogue, The Ritz Paris & Tim Walker come together - the outcome of this shoot is nothing short of perfection. I recently came across this shoot from the April 2012 issue of Vogue US (How I ever missed this I will never know!).
The beautiful and opulent shoot of Kate Moss was photographed by famed British Photographer Tim Walker and took place at The Ritz Paris. Styled by Grace Coddington for Vogue US, the Marie Antoinette inspired shoot is what fairytales are made of.
Dressed head to toe in Haute Couture and posing in suite surrounded by Chanel & in the gold clad Coco Chanel Suite Bathroom next to an overflowing bath full of pink bubbles, this shoot is by far one of my favourite ever shoots by Tim Walker.

“I drink the French 76: vodka, sugar, lemon juice topped up with champagne; it’s the best drink ever, but it only tastes like that in the Hemingway Bar,” says Moss. This quote is everything I love about Kate Moss and this editorial.
