(femalefirst.co.uk) - Nude Kate Moss Photos Sell For ?183,000 Nude photographs of supermodel Kate Moss fetched a total of ?183,000 when they went up for sale in a London auction yesterday (31May07). A six foot square photograph of a naked Moss, taken by Albert Watson, sold for ?54,000 ($108,000) - five times the amount auction house Christie's had expected. A 1996 portrait of the catwalk star entitled Kate Moss (Hand on Neck) went under the hammer at ?38,400 ($76,800), while a 1993 photo of Moss shot by Corinne Day for the cover of fashion magazine Vogue sold for ?6,600 ($13,200).
But at ?84,000 ($168,000), the highest bid for a Moss original was for a set of six prints of the 33-year-old without make-up, taken by Chuck Close. The photos were originally estimated to go for only $40,000 (?20,000).
