She appeared on the front cover of i-D The Raw Issue in 1989. Her clothes have been worn by everyone from Kylie to Rihanna. It is one of two of Matthew's portraits that are currently on display as part of Exposed: The Naked Portrait, an exhibition jointly curated between the National Portrait Gallery and the Laing Art Gallery , Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
This exhibition of unclothed portraits from the National Portrait Gallery Collection invites questions about identity and gender, the real and ideal. It includes portraits of exposed sitters from Nell Gwyn to Naomi Campbell, Gilbert & George to John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
