This astounding collaboration between designer lingerie house Agent Provocateur and Kate Moss breaks new ground. These genius innovators in haute couture commissioned Mike Figgis to portray Moss in her first acting role, resulting in four unique online films: Shadows, Scale, Exhibitionist, and NarcissusThe Four Dreams of Miss X. Shot in night vision, these films are intensely intimate: a beautiful woman's private dream experiences. Each film was released online periodically over the last year. Enticing readers into the dusky world of Miss X, the book presents both the scripts and stunning images from the films, as well as a unique DVD featuring all four dreams. This is a must-have purchase for fans of Kate Moss, film, and gorgeous photography.

About the Author:

Joseph Corré (son of Vivien Westwood and Malcolm McLaren) and wife Serena Rees opened the first Agent Provocateur shop 10 years ago arousing a media frenzy usually reserved for superstars. After this phenomenal success, Agent Provocateur has gone on to launch a thriving mail order catalog, an award-winning website, and produce complementary accessories including shoes, jewelry, and a very successful fragrance and beauty line. Kate Moss is one of the most beautiful and arguably the most famous model in the world today. Discovered at JFK airport in 1988, she has since gained icon status worldwide. Mike Figgis is a renowned film director, best known for Leaving Las Vegas and Time Code.

From Publishers Weekly:

A new photo book featuring Kate Moss romping in filmy lingerie by global retailer Agent Provacateur (AP), originally of the UK, proves that the line between art and advertising is thinner than a G-string. The tome, along with an enclosed DVD, is the brainchild of film director Figgis (Academy Award winner for Leaving Las Vegas), who uses four hallucinogenic dream sequences to showcase the diaphanous undergarments that have made AP a fashion favorite. Moss's own introduction explains how pleased she is with the "eerie atmosphere that is reflected in the photographs," but the volume's wealth of sexy, arresting images make it hard to focus on the style icon's introduction, much less the nonsensical text scattered throughout. While some of the photography hits kinky, ethereal, Brassa?-like notes-most notably in the use of oddly realistic, carefully posed mannequins-the majority exhibit a playfully sexy tone, with a few half-hearted stabs at genuine provocation (a woman with a gun pointed at her, a "murder victim" outlined in chalk); less successful are a smattering of heavily pixilated digital stills seemingly meant to evoke arthouse grit. Though Moss is at her sensual best, lesser-known models hold their own-their lack of celebrity baggage lets the expensive lingerie shine, proving itself an art form that's equal parts cutting-edge fashion design and delicious excess.
