Fashion magazine W is the first tabloid that expressed its support to the snorting-cocaine supermodel Kate Moss, publishing an article in its November issue.
The article, written by deputy editor Julie Belcove, features an 8-page spread inside - complete with a glowing editorial describing her as an 'icon.'
Belcove writes: "When Kate Moss burst into the fashion world in the early Nineties, few imagined she'd still be the dominant model more than a decade later.
Her delicate frame posed a paradoxically giant challenge to the prevailing ideal, epitomized by towering, busty mannequins like Cindy, Claudia and Naomi.
But the big-eyed waif developed a womanly presence. As the world now knows, she has not come through the transformation unscathed.
A tabloid sting recently caught the 31 year old Moss using cocaine, the resulting photographs cost her several lucrative contracts.
Moss, who was booked for this issue well before the scandal broke, has had a long relationship with the magazine, appearing on more covers - by far - than any other model or actress".
W's creative director Dennis Freedman added: "She has shown courage by taking steps to deal with her personal problems and it is only natural that we would support someone that we regard as a friend."
A spokesperson for Kate's London agency, Storm, said: "We are delighted and grateful for W's support for Kate through their photo coverage and commitment and also through their public message of loyalty."
