She’s no angel, but that didn’t stop Kate Moss from getting dressed up like the Virgin Mary for W magazine!
The scandalous supermodel, who often hits the shoreline topless, is featured in the religion themed March 2012 split covers of the fashion magazine, showing off her “good” and “bad” sides – and RadarOnline.com has the controversial photos.
Wearing a Vera Wang silk lace dress, an Erdem habit, and Early Hollywood vintage lace, Kate was photographed by Steven Klein for the magazine’s Spring Fashion Bible issue, with religious word references like ‘divine’, ‘heavenly, ‘sinful’ scattering the cover.
For the “Bad” cover, the model is depicted in a darker light, wearing a Gucci silk georgette dress with blood red lipstick.
In one of the more controversial images inside the magazine, the supermodel wears a white Jill Sander cotton dress with her legs spread open, holding a dark cross between them.
While the photos are a hit with aspiring fashionistas, they have caused outrage among conservative groups, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
“Clearly W magazine needs to generate some controversy to pretend it matters, so it’s turned to today’s standby and decided to bash Christianity,” Dan Gainor of the Culture and Media Institute exclusively told RadarOnline.com.
“Everything W has done here, from making the issue the ‘Fashion Bible’ to having Moss hold a crucifix provocatively between her legs, is designed to provoke controversy and mock religion. We get it, hating Christians is certainly in fashion.
“Interestingly, W tried to create twin covers showing a good and a bad Kate Moss. Given how twisted W is for mocking religion, they should have stuck to just one cover — the bad — to reflect the magazine itself.
“While Moss can be faulted for appearing in this spread, it’s the responsibility of the magazine’s editors not to try to profit by denigrating faith. Instead of high-brow fashion, readers get low-brow bigotry,” he concluded.
No stranger to criticism, Moss, who married The Kills Jamie Hince this summer, has managed to stir up scandal ever since debuting her “heroin chic” look on the catwalk in the 1990s.
One of her biggest scandals to date, was when photos of her surfaced allegedly snorting cocaine with ex-boyfriend Pete Doherty – but according to the numbers, the scandal only made her richer!
