We have one question: How gorgeous?

US Vogue's April edition contains this gem of a photoshoot by Tim Walker, featuring none other than Kate Moss.

They're on location at the Ritz, Paris (naturally) to celebrate that iconic hotel one last time before it closed its doors for renovation. Presumably said renovations will now also include scrubbing pink bath bubbles off one of the bathrooms?

Kate made herself at home in the hotel as she posed in a series of increasingly stunning outfits - seriously, if you check out the full slideshow over on she's clambered onto the mantlepiece and onto the back of a couch at various points.

More images from the shoot are available over at, accompanied by a piece reminiscing about the Ritz - in all its glorious luxury - by Andre Leon Talley.

Our favourite anecdote is this one:

"My best fashion moment was in 1996, when Karl took over the entire first-floor Imperial Suite for his couture show, to observe the twenty-fifth anniversary of Mademoiselle Coco's death. He had two shows that brisk January day, and between them Naomi Campbell, Shalom Harlow, and Kate Moss came to my room-a simple one with two armchairs and the bed in a neoclassical alcove-and took naps. Karl and I walked in to find them all lined up asleep under layers of fine piqué sheets, like fairy princesses, false eyelashes still in place."
