Kate Moss, one of the most photographed and iconic women of all time, has stepped into the shoes of one of the most iconic men of all time, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, Elvis Presley. ‘The Wonder of You’ by Elvis Presley with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the third track to be lifted from the massive number one album of the same name, now has a beautiful, specially filmed video with Kate Moss channeling her love of rock ‘n’ roll and her own inner Elvis. With clothes and imagery that draw inspiration from existing Elvis photographs and footage, the video is the first original music video for anElvis Presley track produced in this decade.
Filmed at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, where the album was recorded, the video was conceptualized by Vaughan Arnell of Moxie Pictures who discovered a striking resemblance between classic Elvis Presley images and some of Kate Moss’most famous fashion shots.
Brought to life in stunning black & white, the video features Kate Moss performing in styles inspired by four memorable Elvis Presley looks including the black leather suit made famous in his 1968 Comeback Special. The modern interpretation has been recreated as a jumpsuit which was custom made for Kate Moss.
Kate Moss said: “I was so excited to be asked to be involved in this project, anything for Elvis…”
