Special Guest Judge... Kate Moss! Roxy Girl Icon


Guess who the special guest judge is for our Roxy Girl Icon contest? That's right, it's supermodel Kate Moss herself!

Show Kate Moss your Roxy Girl look.
Kate Moss is one of the most recognized and iconic super models of all time. She has graced the cover of Vogue 30 times and embodies effortless beauty and confident style. She has been a muse and inspiration to many artists, photographers, designers and musicians.

Kate Moss is the cover girl for British glam rocker Bryan Ferry's new album Olympia. Throughout his four decade career, Bryan has often featured exotic females on his albums and in his music videos, most notably Jerry Hall on his 1975 album Siren.

These women became know as Roxy Girls, women who embodied ritz, confidence and glamour. Roxy Music's enduring iconic status continues with Kate's appearance on the cover of Olympia.

Create a new or classic look for Roxy Girls; women who embody ritz, confidence and glamour!

Kate Moss will personally choose her 2 favorite sets! Winners will receive a deluxe edition album and 40 page coffee table book featuring pictures of Kate Moss signed by both Kate Moss and Bryan Ferry.
