38-year-old supermodel Kate Moss has donated a topless picture of herself to raise funds for the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC).
Moss’ photo – by Norwegian photographer Solve Sundsbo – will be auctioned off at Bonhams in London on May 17. In the shot, Moss poses in gold metallic trousers, with only her arms protecting her modesty.
Moss is not the only ‘naked’ celebrity image up for auction.
Leading photographers and private collectors have donated a range of celebrity portraits, with highlights including:
- Patrick Demarchelier’s stunning image of Christy Turlington taken in New York in 1986.
- A playful shot of Brigitte Bardot and Sean Connery on the set of 1968 Western Shalako by celebrated British photographer, Terry O’Neill.
- A striking portrait of British actor Oliver Reed by celebrity photographer, Alistair Morrison, whose previous subjects have included Bette Davis, Laurence Olivier, Anthony Hopkins, Tom Cruise and Margaret Thatcher.
- The notoriously flamboyant fashion designer Valentino by Martin Schoeller.
- The iconic portrait of Twiggy by Barry Lategan.
- The beautiful Celia Hammond by Terence Donovan.
- Artist of the moment Damien Hirst by David Bailey.
- An intimate shot from Rankin's ‘Snog’ series, 2000.
All funds raised from the auction will go to help support the NSPCC and its Rebuilding Childhoods Appeal, which aims to support post-abuse therapy for children and young people. Find out more here.
