While Kate Moss is used to being in front of a camera by now, this early shot of the English beauty proves that she’s always been a natural. Moss mounts a bike in a polka dot bikini in the black and white Polaroid shot by D’Orazio and featured in his new book.
Even model Heidi Klum got the opportunity to pose for D’Orazio during a sexy lingerie shoot. D’Orazio was originally a painter but “picked up a camera as a young man in the 1980s and quickly became known for his distinctive work in fashion, producing editorial work for elite magazines,” Glenn O’Brian mentioned in the forward of the book.
