KATE MOSS UNRETOUCHED FOR VOGUE ITALIA

Kate Moss is as gorgeous and fierce as always in these unretouched photos for Vogue Italia. The iconic supermodel worked with photographer Peter Lindbergh to create a stunning set of black and white photos that give a behind-the-scenes feel and a raw grainy look reminiscent of a shoot they did together in the early 90's. 

What I love about these photos (and every other photo of Kate Moss) is that when you look at them, you think, "Yup, that's Kate Moss just being Kate Moss." And now, at 41, with minimal makeup and an unretouched and unphotoshopped approach, we can really say, "Yup, that's Kate Moss,"  

It's about time this trend has taken off and started a movement. At the end of the day, don't we all just want to see the real thing?

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: FOR THE MODERN WOMAN

I will be the first to admit that I can be particularly difficult to shop for. I have extremely vivid ideas of the things I need in my life and what I don't, the quality and functionality of these items, and of course their aesthetic appeal. Sounding a little hard to please eh? 

Knowing this about myself, and having met a couple of the same breed, I have put together the Holiday Gift Guide For The Modern Woman. Classic, fun and purposeful gift ideas, including a few sophisticated upgrades of things we already own- intended to please even the most difficult to shop for.
