I know that I'm way late to this game, but multiple factors have contributed to my growing obsession (many steps past love) for Kate Moss. As a fashion follower, she was always in the mix as a big player in my consciousness, but I never really investigated further. After becoming obsessed with everything about her wedding and subsequently reading articles and interviews, I was already part way down the slippery slope to fangirlville. As she continues to get better with age, my obsession grows (I mean, come ON). 

I was excited to hear that she was posing for Playboy because, like Marilyn Monroe, the original centerfold, Kate is classy and professional who makes smart decisions about when to take her clothes off for the camera and who to take them off for. There was no bottle blonde weird half shirts and porny poses in this shoot. It was pure classy, arty perfection. Not like it was going to be anything else. I wanted to repost for reference. All photos (there are more! and she is more naked in them!) from WhoWhatWear.com via Playboy

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the biggest art fan. I like my share of certain types of modern art, I love street art and I'm a fan of photography, but when it comes to fancy art museums and analyzing a brush stroke or a color choice, I'm pretty lost. Nor do I care so much. But when it comes to fashion in art, I can easily get on board. The Cut put up a slideshow with images from a book about fashion illustration, and I excitedly clicked through and it got me to thinking. I love the internet for bringing creative people to the masses and introducing fashion fans to people who combine fashion and art. Whether it's painting, illustration, graphic design with a message or comical depictions of industry realities, I can't get enough. It's easy to keep an eye out around the web, but some of my favorite sources for fashion art are below! 

The Cut: Between illustrated fashion personalities, photographs re-imagined or fashion shows drawn andpainted, New York Magazine's fashion blog really knows how to find and commission people who create some of the coolest fashion art. Search through the site for more.

Paper Fashion: I follow Paper Fashion on Instagram, and I love the beautiful embellished drawings that come up in my feed. Katie Rodgers is extremely talented and really has an eye for bringing out the subtleties.

Honestly WTF: One of my favorite blogs, they cover real art, which I almost always love, but also fashion art and illustration. They find people from all over the world and bring it to their great blog. It's led me down a lot of hours of rabbit holes.

Pinterest: My board titled "Create" logs all the artistic ideas I find on Pinterest and all around the Internet. It's not just fashion art, but there's a lot of fashion art in there, and each pin will lead to where I found the work if it wasn't from my Pinterest feed.

UPDATE: Honestly WTF highlighted Vogue's December cover spread which used inspiration from iconic art pieces for recreations featuring Jessica Chastain.
