Kate Moss dons an admirable amount of hats: fashion model, Britain’s national treasure, style icon, wife, mum, dog owner, muse… Hell, she’s even dabbled in (adorably awkward) singing on a Babyshambles track. But Playboy cover model? That’s one I did not see coming. NowThis News claims to have gotten its hands on an internal memo from the publication that named Moss as the cover girl of its 60th anniversary issue, which would hit newsstands January of next year. Kate has posed in the nude countless times, but her jobs historically tend to skew artsy avant-garde rather than garish lad’s mag. According to the memo, she’s set to be shot for the editorial by legendary photog team Mert and Marcus, with W‘s Alex White as stylist, this week — and with a team like that, the results are likely to be much different from the magazine’s usual fare.
Though it’s not much more than a rumor right now, it’s certainly feasible, and I bet it would convince a whole new demographic to pick up Playboy on the newsstands for the very first time (duh, ladiez be lovin’ Kate Moss). I know I would — I buy every Kate cover. It’s an expensive habit. Seriously, do you know how many covers this girl gets? [Fashionista]
Paris has been awash with fashions and celebrities and celebrity fashion designers for the past week, so it makes sense that International Fashions Model and Sublime Cigarette Smoker Kate Moss would be there, with her husband Jamie Hince. But also there? Almost An Oscar Winner Jesssica Chastain, with her beau, the very Italianly named Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo.
Because I am basically an overgrown high-schooler, I want to know: Who do you think is the cuter couple?

Kate Moss obviously sold her soul for incredibly great skin or something, right? She was spotted Thursday evening sans fards looking drop dead amazing. Between her sun-kissed golden locks, and that skin, Moss might just be the posterchild for how to lead a party lifestyle. After all, most of us would look straight up haggard if we did as much raging as this lady did. And while I might switch out that shaggy dog coat for another, Moss proves that she’s always and forever on top of her game. [Photo: Fame/Flynet] Keep reading »
The long-standing baddest bitch in the game turns 39 today. That means she’s been in the business for 20 years, which is about four times as long as the average model. It’s easy to see why Kate Moss has had such a lasting effect on the fashion world: it’s got as much to do with her devil-may-care attitude and scandalous (former) ways as it does with her long legs and striking features, which have been landing magazine covers (fashion glossies and tabloid trash alike), billboards, and ad campaigns and headlining runway shows since her induction. Let’s take a look at Kate being Kate over the years … [Photo: Corinne Day/Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
”[Lucian Freud] told me about when he was in the navy, when he was 19 or something, and he used to do all of the tattoos for the sailors. And I said, ‘Oh my God, that’s amazing.’ And he went, ‘I can do you one. What would you like? Would you like creatures of the animal kingdom?’ I mean, it’s an original Freud. I wonder how much a collector would pay for that? A few million? … If it all goes horribly wrong I could get a skin graft and sell it! It’s probably the only one on skin that’s still around, because when he was in the navy he was about 19. Can you imagine?”
— Considering the late, great artist‘s nude painting of Kate Moss sold for £3.9 million (Sienna Miller could learn a thing or two from Kate’s choice in pregnant portraiture), which equates to approximately $6.2 million, the morbid fact of the matter is that his etching of two swallows on the supermodel’s lower back would likely be worth exponentially more. (If people actually did that stuff, that is. Do they? Don’t tell me.) That is one fancy tramp stamp. [Huffington Post]
The dress Kate Moss chose to wear for the launch of “Kate: The Kate Moss Book,” a book about Kate Moss, doesn’t really make much sense, but she could probably wear, like, the most appalling Liberace get-up and women all around the world would be like, “Need.” I guess you can wear whatever the hell you want when you’re a grungy 5’7″ girl from Croydon with crooked teeth who became one of the most universally recognizable (and loved) faces of all time. Oh, and on top of this whole book situation, there’s also going to be a Kate Moss documentary! Two decades after her modeling debut, Ms. Moss is still killing it, and is it any wonder why? Er, I may be slightly biased. Just slightly.
