Harper’s Bazaar recycle Kate Moss, twice

Bibby Sowray

We're all encouraged to 'reduce, reuse, recycle' wherever and whenever possible in daily life, and it appears fashion publications are no exception.

We all marvelled at Kate Moss' sun-kissed glow and artfully tousled hair when she graced the cover and inside pages of US ‘Harper's Bazaar 's July issue in a beach-themed shoot - and it seems Australia and the Ukraine were just as taken with the images.

Now, the ‘Harper's Bazaar’ editions from both countries have chosen to use pictures from that very same shoot, which was photographed by Terry Richardson, to cover their August issues.

While the original US cover featured Moss wearing a white feathered creation posing against a rock, the Australian and Ukrainian editions have opted for more evidently beachy shots.

We're all for recycling, and we understand that shoots involving the likes of Kate Moss and Terry Richardson cost mega bucks, but we're not sure how we feel about this situation - isn't the point of having country-specific editions that they each display something different from that of their foreign counterparts?

It's not the first recycling Kate has been involved in. She graced the June 2012 issue of British ‘Vogue’ , shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, and appeared to have borrowed David Beckham's rope from his Armani underwear campaign, which was also shot by the famed photography duo.

We're betting Kate doesn't suffer the drudgery of sorting her plastics from her paper on a weekly basis like us mere mortals, so at least now no one can accuse her of not doing her bit when it comes to recycling. She's nothing if not thrifty.
