Kate Moss has been named 'new face of Stuart Weitzman' this week in a transatlantic marriage of style that will see the British Supermodel showcase new and upcoming pieces from the high-end US shoe brand from now onwards. The collaboration was launched with a series of striking monochrome photographs by Mario Testino: the shots show  Kate wearing shoes from the brand's spring/summer 2012 collection:

Shown here wearing 'Sin City' sandals from Stuart Wetizman's forthcoming 'global print' collection, Kate looks every bit as effortlessly chic as she always has. Despite the length of her career it's the first time that Kate has worked on an American shoe campaign, and according to Stuart Weitzman she was chosen because of her international fashion status as well as her personal trend-setting cult style.

Kate commented: "I had a great time shooting the Stuart Weitzman campaign and I'm so happy to be face of the brand this season," said Kate Moss. "Working with Mario Testino is always fun and it was wonderful meeting Stuart on set."

We can't wait to see more of the Global Print collection, which also includes the wild, full-length gladiators pictured below:
