Average people idolize celebrities for a plethora of reasons, some more valid than others. Outside of the realm of style, Kate Moss isn’t exactly the first star who comes to mind as far as inspirational lives are concerned, so maybe (probably) I am touched in the head for thinking she’s an overall positive role model. Despite drug scandals and disastrous relationship choices, Kate has always handled fallout with grace and an impressive ability to bounce back to a place even better than where she started. There are a lot of things I’ve learned from Kate being Kate, and how to dress is just one of them. Never complain, never explain. On her 40th birthday, a style inspiration board doesn’t even begin to cover it (maybe this French documentary will?), but it’s a decent place to start! Keep reading »
There aren’t many people out there who can say they kicked off their 40th year on earth with a Playboy cover. I’m not going to say that there’s only one person who can make that claim, because I don’t know if that’s true, but I do imagine it’s a pretty exclusive group… and naturally, Kate Moss is part of it. I’m just going to go ahead and assume that Kate Moss is part of all exclusive groups by default. Keep reading »
A couple weeks ago, Rachel posted that teaser image of supermodel Kate Moss on all fours, clad in a Playboy Bunny costume, cotton-ball tail and all. And now the issue itself — the magazine’s 60th anniversary issue — has arrived, with Kate on the cover. Somehow she manages to make even this ridiculous and kinda demeaning ensemble look totally chic. Sigh. See one more (SFW) shot after the jump! [Stylelite] Keep reading »
Here’s a challenge for you eagle-eyed Frisky readers: can you deduce which famous female is sporting the iconic Playboy bunny costume from bum alone? A hint — we wouldn’t typically peg her as the Playboy type, but that doesn’t mean this is the first time she’s bared her bod in a magazine. Far from it, in fact … Keep reading »
London Fashion Week is my favorite of all the Fashion Weeks for one reason and one reason alone, and her name is Kate Moss. The Croydon native rolled through the Topshop Unique show like a (shockingly good-natured!) boss on Sunday with daughter Lila Grace in tow, looking every bit the icon on mom duty in dark sunglasses, leopard-print pants, and a T-shirt. LFW comes to a close on Tuesday, so I’m crossing my fingers for more Kate sightings before its end…
Gasp! A brand new Kate Moss editorial and interview in an American magazine? What have I done to deserve this? (Nothing, obviously. It just happened. They didn’t do it for me.) The O.G. supermodel has been keeping it more low-key than ever as of late, rarely photographed aside from candid shots of her strolling about London with husband Jamie Hince or tumbling out of a club every so often, but with a Playboy cover rumored to be on deck, it seems like Kate may just be getting a little bit better-acquainted with the press these days. The photoshoot is delightful, but as is always the case with Ms. Moss, the quotes are even better. Kate talks body image, her daughter’s fascination with “The Devil Wears Prada,” and “white bums,” after the jump… Keep reading »
Aw, baby Katers, always tumbling glamorously out of a club somewhere in the middle of the night. I love it! More importantly, though, who would have ever suspected that Kate Moss, one of the most dazzling women on earth and otherwise, would own one of those ridiculous bunny-ear phone cases? Not I, my friend. Not I. [Photo: WENN]
We get it: I love Kate Moss. She’s a stunning model, a sartorial darling, a party girl and mother and rock star wife — she covers all the bases, and looks incredible whilst doing so. But Kate is also notoriously press-shy, which means that most media accounts of her are, well, straight-up awkward, despite testaments (by her many famous friends) that she’s one of the sweetest, most fun people around. It’s rare that she’s captured in a genuine moment… but that’s exactly what her old friend, British TV presenter Nick Grimshaw (with whom she read aloud Fifty Shades of Grey for charity), elicited when he agreed to prank call her live on BBC Radio One. Grimmy, as she refers to him, phones Moss to inquire about the whereabouts of his “High School Musical” DVD, because he needs to watch it right now, and she reacts with legitimate concern. Considering Kate’s tight-lipped public persona, as The Cut writer Charlotte Cowles attests, “this may just be the best press she’s gotten in ages.” [NYMag.com]
Kates Moss and Middleton effectively share nothing in common aside from a first name and a nationality: one is a renegade party girl and supermodel, the other a refined, perfectly vanilla royal wife and full-time perfect blowout-haver. And yet! The results of a poll formulated by Britain’s largest online beauty retailer, feelunique.com, show that the polar opposites snagged the top spots in the running for the UK’s most influential beauty icons.
Moreover, Middleton has knocked Moss out of the prime seat by almost double, with 30 percent of the poll’s responders citing the Duchess as the inspiration behind their beauty purchases. Says the site’s editorial director, who happens to be named NEWBY HANDS (????!), “Kate and Kate represent two sides of really modern women and between the two of them they cover all style and lifestyle tastes. … Despite their differences they are both aspirational and fascinating.” But, you know, Moss forever and ever and ever amen. There is only one Kate in London, am I right?
Of course, this raises the question — which side are you on? Do you skew towards Kate Moss’s insouciant tousled hair, smudged smoky eye, and nighttime red lip, or Kate Middleton’s black liner, flawless curls, and healthy bronzed skin? [Telegraph]
Man, England gets all the best stuff! (Not really? Fine.) As part of a fundraiser for the charity Comic Relief, BBC Radio 1 promised listeners that they would have the notoriously tight-lipped Kate Moss in to read an excerpt from Fifty Shades of Grey, on the premise that they would be able to collect £200,000. And, duh, they did it, because there’s no better incentive for raising money than anything involving Kate Moss. So, want to hear Katers open “that mouth of hers” (says host Nick Grimshaw) to read a page out of the beloved literary masterpiece using her exceptionally sexy voice? Of course you do! She almost — almost — pulls it off without laughing, and then finally collapses into a heap of giggles. Isn’t she the cutest? [Fashionista]
