Kate Moss Dances in the Dark "Ritual Spirit" Massive Attack

Kate Moss dances in the dark for Massive Attack’s, “Ritual Spirit,” directed by Robert “3D” Del Naja. Collaborating with singer/songwriter Azekel, this EP offers an intoxicating video experience. Taking it in is like ingesting a slow-moving, neo-psychedelic drug. Something I’ve termed, The Blend, it allows us to appreciate the thought process while embracing the touch element.

Play a lil' Jail House Jubilee in "Caged Heat" by Steven Klein

Anna Cleveland and Violet Chachki play a little jailhouse jubilee in “Caged Heat” by Steven Klein for Interview Magazine, 03/16. Pushing the procession of provocation, this breaks barriers as it redefines gender-bending. Following Cleveland into the fray, we watch frocks rock as hips start to sway. What I wear will never be confined, as who I am can’t be defined. Lifting a wallet may get you in, but it will take more for haute couture to fall off this girl’s skin.
