It must have been destiny!
In her new book, Kate: The Kate Moss Book, Kate Moss reveals she wasn't the girl Calvin Klein wanted to model in their iconic ad campaign.
The supermodel said:
"Patrick [Demarchelier] was shooting the new campaign for Calvin. Bruce [Weber] had done it for years, and Calvin had asked Patrick to do it. They wanted Vanessa Paradis, but she said no."
Apparently, Mossy wasn’t even sure she was going to take the gig, adding:
"I can still remember asking Paul Cavaco, 'Do you think I should do this Calvin contract?' And he said, 'You know what? You're so small, you might not last. It could be all over in a season! Take the money and run!' I worked at Calvin for eight years. I just didn't know if it was right for me. I thought it might stop me being able to do other things. I think I just saw it all as a way of getting out of Croydon. I definitely didn't want to stay where I was."
Wow! So that totally makes that nervous breakdown worth it, right!?
We think so because we're having a hard time imagining Vanessa in those iconic ads.
Do U think CK made the right choice???
