Kate Moss 'so excited' to dress up as Elvis for music video

Supermodel Kate Moss has been getting to know the wonder of Elvis Presley's wardrobe for a video shoot that sees her channelling some of the singer's best-known looks.

Moss is one of the most photographed women in the world and will recreate some of music's most recognisable outfits by starring in a music video for Elvis hit The Wonder Of You, in which she dresses as the King of Rock and Roll.

It will be the first original music video for an Elvis track produced in this decade and has been recorded to accompany the third song taken from the number one album The Wonder Of You: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Moss said: "I was so excited to be asked to be involved in this project, anything for Elvis."

The video is shot in black and white and features Moss, 42, in four key Elvis looks which include the black leather suit made famous during his 1968 Comeback Special - although here it has been recreated as a jumpsuit for the model.

Vaughan Arnell of Moxie Pictures came up with the idea after noticing some striking similarities between Moss's most famous fashion shoots and Elvis, and it was recorded at Abbey Road Studios.

The album, a follow-up to 2015's If I Can Dream: Elvis Presley With The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, debuted at number one and features Elvis's vocals accompanied by the orchestra on such hits as Always On My Mind, Suspicious Minds and Amazing Grace.

Moss's video for The Wonder Of You will go live on Vevo from 9am on Friday.
