The face is familiar, but there's something not quite right about this picture.

Someone's taken Kate Moss out of her skinny jeans, done up her hair and persuaded her to put the cigarette out.

The partying supermodel, 35, looks almost regal in this taffeta creation by Oscar de la Renta.

But then the picture was taken by photographer Annie Leibovitz, famed for her portrait of the Queen.

It is featured in next month's Vogue magazine to mark this year's Costume Institute gala in New York.

Yesterday Kate showed the more recognisable side of her image as she dressed down for a trip to the shops near her north London home.

Dressed in a scruffy torn short skirt, black blazer and trilby, she couldn't have looked more different to the poised perfection shown in her Vogue shoot.

Sponsored by designer Marc Jacobs, the superparty at the Metropolitan Museum of Art rivals the Oscars for glamour.

Moss is co-hosting the gala with singer Justin Timberlake.

Mr Jacobs said of Moss: 'There has been so much written about her personal style. But it isn't her personal style that interests me, it's her person; it's the life and the spirit.' Mail Online reported.
