Imagine being picked out of the thousands of models by a fellow model. A supermodel called Kate Moss. Well according to Vogue.co.uk, Kate Moss has picked model Irina Lazareanu (pictured above right on the catwalk and on the cover of W Jewelry) to model her Topshop collection.
It’s not the first time the two models’ paths have crosses, Irina is a former drummer in Babyshambles, you know, Pete Doherty’s band, and when Kate was guest-editing French Vogue in 2005 she cast Irina in an editorial shoot.
“Kate thinks she’s got a very unique, rock-chick look,” says a Vogue.co.uk source. “She really felt that Irina embodies the feel of her TopShop range – her porcelain skin, her big eyes under her thick Sixties fringe – it was a look Kate was impressed with.”
P.S. Kate Moss for Topshop will be available in New York thanks to Barneys from May 8 â€“ only 7 days after the range launches in the UK.
