"Kate still hadn't broken through the battle line of the supermodels of that time. I wanted to show the glamour that we could see underneath the waif portrayal." Originally commissioned for Esquire, the magazine dumped the images and dismissed Moss's prospects as a future model. About six months later, Moss's career began to build, and the magazine reapproached Garner about doing another shoot with her in London. (Garner says that her images were eventually published alongside "a scathing piece about how these waif girls had the audacity to challenge the beauty icons who were already established."
