Kate Moss, Nyx, Greek Goddess
Nyx

Nyx  is the Greek goddess of the night. A shadowy figure, Nyx stood at or near the beginning of creation, and was the mother of other personified deities such as Hypnos (Sleep) and Thanatos (Death). Her appearances are sparse in surviving mythology, but reveal her as a figure of such exceptional power and beauty, that she is feared by Zeus himself. She is found in the shadows of the world and only ever seen in glimpses.  More Inspired by a photograph of Kate Moss included in a feature on her in Interview Magazine.
