Just Peachy: Kate Moss's Beautiful Cover

UPDATED! below . . .

This morning my eldest daughter and I walked to the farmers' market for fresh vegetables and bouquets of gloriously faded zinnias.

Although I do like jewel tones, a faded flower, in shades of peach, pink, and saffron, is so pretty at this time of year, when the light begins to change from summer bright to fall warm tones.

I also bought, though not at the farmer's market, August's Vogue UK (at the end of the month, I know), so struck was I by Kate Moss's cover.

Not only does she look more elegant than I've seen her for years in an editorial (I was actually reminded of this image for Liz Tilberis' Harper's Bazaar):

except that she is wearing a gently faded peach dress, delectably embroidered with sequins and silk:

I do hope to see more KM editorials like this one (photographed by Mario Testino).

But wait:  what's this?  A dress so terracotta-y, bordering on "rust," that I ignored it on

How can this earthy dress be the peachy confection far above?  Ahh, the tricks of the light . . .
