Kate Moss really likes Niagara

Back in March, supermodel Kate Moss got a gig as an editor for British Vogue, and for her first assignment she styled a model after Detroit punk rocker-turned-fine artist Niagara. Moss even faithfully recreated photos of Niagara from Detroit's early punk scene for the spread.

But the Niagara-love didn't end there. Just last week, UK's Daily Mail spotted Moss wearing a top from Niagara's line for the Japanese fashion line Hysteric Glamour, which is adorned with a black-and-white photo of Niagara herself.
