Picture of teenager in Vogue goes for Dhs95,000

A nude portrait of a teenage Kate Moss has been sold at
auction for more than $26,000 (Dhs95,000).

The iconic snap was taken by photographer Albert Watson
on a shoot for the German edition of Vogue in January 1993.

The sepia picture features the supermodel kneeling, with
no clothes on and looking into the distance, with just her legs to protect her
modesty.

It was expected to bring in $19,000 (Dhs69,000) at the
Bonham’s auction in London, but an anonymous bidder was named the lucky winner
after putting up $26,000 (Dhs95,000).

Bonham's photography specialist says, “Kate Moss is a
contemporary icon and the photographer is a well-established name. Combine that
with the size and limited edition nature of this lot and it all combines to make
it interesting to collectors.”
