Letter: Vogue editor seems to have missed the point

The Independent Online
Sir: Alexandra Shulman, the editor of Vogue, implies that the Independent has been deliberately creating a scandal about photographs of Kate Moss in order to be able to reproduce them (letter, 27 May). I had never heard of Kate Moss before the Independent began to mention her earlier this year, and now scarcely a week goes by without you mentioning the childlike 'supermodel' somewhere.

This week we have had a surfeit of the woman, with the Vogue photographs in Home News on 22 May, a photo on the letters page on 25 May and the Vogue underwear photographs again on 26 May. It would appear that you are the ones with an unhealthily prurient interest in this skinny waif - all done in the interests of objective reporting, of course.

Yours faithfully,
