R.I.P. Corinne Day

I was so sad to hear that Corinne Day passed away, I've always been a big fan of her work. Below is my all-time favorite editorial of hers; it's from an old issue of Dutch that I dug up recently. Kate Moss and Rosemary Ferguson were her favorite models to photograph;  I don't think they ever looked cooler.

Without being unctuous, this is my favorite fashion blog. You look for the less obvious and you are so knowledgeable and you tie it in with something I really love: cats. Every time you post, I learn something new. Thank you.

Just an observation on a Wednesday morning.

Thank you so much for posting this, Corinne Day is one of my favorite fashion photographers. I can't believe that so few people are talking about her death. It hit me really hard.

that kate moss seems so different to the current kate moss. this could be attributed to great modelling or just a change in fashion, but i like to think it's just that corrine day was such a wonderful photographer, she was able to capture different aspects of people in a single photograph. truly R.I.P.
i adore your blog and all of your recommendations. karen carpenter film? wild and amazing.

Glad you liked Superstar! I wish everyone would watch that film. I think corinne day always had a very specific vision of kate moss and I was just more authentic and interesting than Mario Testino's Kate Moss or Mert & Marcus' Kate Moss. She was totally a genius.
