At almost 40, Kate Moss will grace the cover of the 60th anniversary issue of Playboy. The issue hits newsstands tomorrow, in the same week Kate was awarded the Special Recognition Award at the British Fashion Awards 2013, recognised for her longstanding contribution to the fashion industry.
Before Kate bared it all for the famous photography duo Mert & Marcus, she worked with St.Tropez Tanning & Skin Finishing Expert Nichola Joss to give her skin a camera-ready glow.
1 Week to go
To create Kate Moss’ sexy, yet luminous Playboy look, Nichola started moisturising and exfoliating treatments with Kate a week before to make sure that her skin was hydrated and radiant using the St. Tropez Tan Enhancing Body Polish and Body Moisturiser. Nichola says “It’s so important to hydrate as much as possible before a big shoot because dry skin will look dull in front of a camera.”
Five days to go
Five days prior to the shoot Nichola used the classic St.Tropez Spray Tan formula to give Kate a head-to-toe skin finishing treatment, creating an even bronzed base for further application.
Two days to go
Two days before the shoot Nichola applied the St.Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse with Applicator Mitt to keep the skin looking fresh and perfectly finished before the shoot. To add dimension and accentuate Kate’s best features, she applied an extra layer of the St.Tropez Self Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse around the inner thighs, waist, cleavage and then down her back and arms.
On the day
As a final touch, Nichola used the St.Tropez Gold Illuminator on the lengths of the limbs to make them appear longer and leaner, plus on the décolletage to accentuate her bone structure. The illumination and contouring makes sure the light hits the right curves.
Clothing optional with St.Tropez.
