A: Something like this!
You may know Chris Levine for his ground-breaking 3-D representation of the Queen back in 2004, but it now seems the Canadian born light artist has chosen supermodel supreme Kate Moss as his latest leading lady. What is it with Mossy and artists? Everyone from Lucian Freud to Marc Quinn have given their artistic spin to Kate’s beauty, although we can pretty much guarantee you’ve never seen Kate like this before. Ever.
She’s Light, the name of Levine’s new laser installation featuring Mrs Hince herself was created in collaboration with makeup maestro Charlotte Tilbury, ahead of a large-scale holographic stereogram portrait of the supermodel that will be unveiled at Selfridges on June 17th to mark the opening of Charlotte Tilbury’s ‘Rock N Kohl’ makeup event taking place in store that week. She’s Light is will be shown to the public for the first time today at The Fine Art Society before making its big move to Selfridges on June 17th.
Although Levine’s new piece might not feature Queenie herself, there’s no denying that the 3D artist has more than effectively captured yet another living British icon. We think Kate looks absolutely amazing in the new portrait- with just a red lip, slick of eyeliner and a diamond necklace, Mossy proves her timeless beauty yet again.
Earlier this week we were lucky enough to catch up with old friends Charlotte and Kate who are clearly beyond excited about their most recent collaboration…
Moss said, “I love collaborating with artists, so when my dear friend Charlotte asked me to do this project with Chris I was really excited, as his work is so unique. Chris captures from the outside what you feel inwards. It is amazing how he captures your spirit.”
Charlotte Tilbury gushed, “I am so excited to be unveiling the final image in my Beauty Festival event at Selfridges. The shoot day was shrouded in magic, Kate was so still and so calm – I feel that, with this and the final image we have captured her soul. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!”
Charlotte Tilbury’s Makeup House Of Rock ‘N’ Kohl will be taking place in Selfridges from 17-23 June and the new portrait of Kate will form part of the window display. We can’t wait to see it for ourselves…
