As if one brilliant Kate Moss video wasn’t enough for this fine Tuesday, we’re treating you to ANOTHER. What lucky things you are. And this time, the Cheekbones of Croydon have been let loose in their natural habitat: an uber-glossy photoshoot. So, pray tell, what IS Mossy up to now?
Let’s begin by casting our minds back to May this year when Grazia Daily was partying with MANGO and Moss in Paris. At the time, rumours were rife surrounding Kate joining forces with the high-street brand, as well as photographer pal Terry Richardson, for some exciting fashwan biz. After sitting alongside the duo on the FROW and watching a film of Kate umm, getting dressed in the back of a white van, we left the French capital wondering whether there would be more Mossy MANGO-ness to come...

Well, today we have the answer. As predicted, MANGO have confirmed that Mossy is the face of their A/W’11 collection, bringing models back into the mix after stints from Hollywood actresses Scarlett Johannsson and Penelope Cruz. Exciting, indeed! And here's the first piece of concrete evidence:

A sneak peek at the TV campaign filmed by Monsieur Richardson showing Kate cavorting about in her signature sensual style, with a touch of suitably Spanish flair. And it's not hard to agree with Marc Jacobs' gushing compliments about Mrs Hince's 'incredibly charismatic extraordinary personality' as she beckons us into a curtained-off dressing room where she slips into a flowing red chiffon frock, a twinkling Chanel-esque jacket and sparkling partywear. Yep, we agree, totally unique.

So don't forget to keep your eyes glued to your telly boxes – and this very site – early next month when the full results will be unveiled. And yet, one question remains: is there a Mossy/MANGO collection in the pipeline, hmm..?
