Watch: Kate Moss Stars In New Elvis Presley Video

Watch: Kate Moss Stars In New Elvis Presley Video

Someone like Kate Moss doesn’t need any more street cred, but as the leading lady in the new music video for?Elvis Presley’s?The Wonder of You (one of his greatest tracks of all time), she is the epitome?of cool. The clip was filmed as a tribute to the King of?rock ?n? roll using?clothes and imagery that draw inspiration from existing photographs and footage of the iconic performer, and it is something quite special – the video is the first original music video for a Presley track produced in this decade. And the model is ideal casting given her iconic status the world over.

Filmed at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, where the album was recorded, the video was conceptualised by Vaughan Arnell of Moxie Pictures who married the striking resemblance between classic Presley images and some of Moss? most famous fashion shots to create the beautiful black and white performance clip.

Naturally, fashion is at the forefront of the concept; Moss performs in clothing inspired by four memorable 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 Moss (you’ll see this in full at the very start of the video).

Overall,?it’s an interesting way to bring?Presley’s music to a new generation and to those complaining in the YouTube comment section, yes, Moss is not Elvis, and she’ll never be Elvis (no one will) but the efforts made to pay tribute to such an icon of music, should be very much appreciated by all.
