Katherine Ann Moss
16 January, 1974

“Kate is human and divine; powerful and vulnerable; glamorous and earthy; Ophelia and Lady Macbeth.  And our feelings for her are contradictory, too. They are blameless: we love her.  They are impure: not to put too fine a point on it, but we would like to fuck her.”  ~ Alex Bilmes, Esquire online

“She’s the kind of girl you wished lived next door, but she’s never going to.”
~ David Bailey
