She's got the look

Despite her legendary career, things were looking a little dodgy for Kate Moss recently: she'd been ousted from her Mango by Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr, who brought her accessible, but very sexy and sassy style to both the press at the new campaign's launch,  as well as to the pictures released so far, leaving Moss' stint as the face of the brand looking rather limp by comparison. But if fashion history has taught us anything, it is that nobody puts Kate in a corner. This is why, at 38 (!), she set out to prove she may well still be the world's greatest model and secured two major campaigns in just a matter of days.

First, a campaign for footwear heavyweight Stuart Weitzman, for which she's replaced Natalia Vodianova. Shot by her good friend Mario Testino (and what a team they make!), Kate needs no artifice, no colours, no distractions - the black and white images show Moss wearing little to distract from the statement footwear thanks to natural make-up and her signature mussed-up do.

Second, Moss has just been announced as the face of the Givenchy Spring/Summer 2013 campaign, surprisingly, the first time she's ever collaborated with the brand. Although we have to wait until January to get a glimpse, it's only fair to say the images will be well worth the wait - they've been shot by Mert and Marcus and styled by Carine Roitfeld. And that sounds amazing already.

With the release of her book Kate: The Kate Moss Book only recently and a documentary in the works, seems like Moss is not going anywhere.
