I don’t know how I let this one slip by, but here is the news for those of you who missed it too. Kate Moss recently starred in the world’s first fashion 3D movie, KM3D-1 in collaboration with AnOther magazine.
Artist and filmmaker Baillie Walsh created the short 3D film who previously worked with Moss on a hologram for Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2006 show.
In the film, Moss is depicted in an almost goddess-like manner, thanks to the stylings of Jerry Stafford. Using state-of-the-art Phantom cameras, Moss was captured at 1,000 shots per second, which allowed the film to be slowed down to a speed at which a slow movement is almost undetectable.
Kate appears frozen in time, before she launches a handful of shattering diamonds at the camera. This film is truly beautiful and the 3D technology makes for a more mystical viewing – you can view it here.

It was only a matter of time before fashion designers started to ride the 3D wave! Oakley recently released some “optically correct” Real D glasses, but they weren’t exactly everyone’s cup of tea.
However, Gucci has latched on to the fact that most 3D glasses are darn ugly, and has done something about it! These Gucci “optically correct” Real D frames, are styled with the same 80’s look as the rest of Gucci’s eyewear in its recent summer collection.
They have a high-tech multi-layer mirrored coating too, which prevents distortion when you check out your new look in the mirror.
They are available only from US stores in December – though looking cool in 3D will set you back a pretty penny…$225 to be exact.
