Kate Moss talks Morocco with Mario

Kate Moss talks Morocco with Mario

Kate Moss first discovered Morocco with photographer Mario Sorrenti.

The North African country is a fashion and celebrity favourite, with David Beckham recently heading to the country to celebrate his 40th birthday.

Supermodel Kate is also a massive fan of that part of the world, and chose the Moroccan city of Marrakesh to style a shoot for Vogue UK starring Freja Beha Erichsen.

"I first discovered Morocco on a shoot with Mario Sorrenti. We had a moped and went off into the desert together," Kate recalled to the fashion glossy.

"Freja's the perfect mix of masculinity and femininity."

For the style spread, Freja models a range of outfits; from flowing skirts and dresses, to tiny swimwear and evening tops.

In one black and white shot, the Danish model relaxes on a chair wearing a Givenchy tinsel bolero and bodysuit, with a Chloé suede belt.

"I am inspired by the gardens in Marrakesh. My perfect evening would be spent in those lush surroundings, having dinner with close friends," Kate said.

"Marrakesh has always been about the mystery, the excitement and the vibrancy."

Another shot sees Freja relaxing by the pool on a Moroccan Berber rug, peeling an orange.

She looks stunning in a sequined Tom Ford poncho that skims her stomach and black underwear. Her wrist is adorned with a Kenneth Jay Lane snake bracelet.

"A night out in Marrakesh is all about dressing up. Perhaps I would wear my pyjamas and too-high heels," Kate revealed.
