A Date with Kate

I know you guys are tired of Kimberly Stewart, so let's talk about someone we haven't posted about a hundred times.....Kate.
Christie's will auction rare and unseen portraits of Kate Moss next month, with some photographs expected to raise over £22,000 each. One unpublished black and white photo taken by Corinne Day at a Croydon quarry when Moss was just 16, is expected to sell for £6,000. The infamous Day shot of the model in a pink tank top and black pants, standing up against a white wall decorated with fairy lights, is expected to go under the hammer for at least £7,000. Other nude portraits and fashion shoots with renowned photographers Irving Penn, Albert Watson and Chuck Close, will no doubt fetch an even higher price. "She is a cultural icon and arguably the most influential model of our day," said Christie's head of photography, Yuka Yamaji. The auction takes place on May 31.
