Our favorite new Internet timewaster, Pinterest has in recent weeks become a haven for online pro-anorexia and eating disorder communities. Drawn to the site’s image-heavy, community-oriented style, thinsporation posters have recently flooded the site, posting pictures of jutting hips, emaciated models and concave bellies, emblazoned with pro-ana slogans like “nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” And, most importantly, Pinterest posters can post anonymously, meaning that users can reach out to one another but still feel safe.

But all of that is about to change.

You would think that with the level of universal fame Kate Moss has achieved, she … wouldn’t deign to be photographed looking lascivious by her friend, the seedy predator otherwise known as Terry Richardson. However, I have to give it to Kate — all one needs to do is give the girl a cigarette and a leather jacket, tousle her hair, snap some otherwise pretty typical photos, and the results exude the implacable coolness that Moss is famous for. I like these pictures, but that has far less to do with the photography/photographer and more to do with the fact that Kate so effortlessly owns every frame she’s ever graced. It’s no wonder she’s been modeling’s premiere wunderkind for going on 20 years now. These shots aren’t set that differently from the grimy photos Richardson took recently of Lindsay Lohan, but they manage to be worlds apart. [High Snobiety]

Stars Fête Prada’s 24-Hour Museum

As I’m sure you’re well aware, Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week is in full swing, and so is all the festivity that comes along with it. Last night, the biggest (and most notoriously fun-loving) fashion superstars this side of the Rive Gauche celebrated the launch of Prada’s 24 hour museum. A collaboration between Prada and the Italian visual artist and satirist Francesco Vezzoli, the pop-up extravaganza is open for today only. Talk about a whirlwind! The evening began with a private dinner, and the afterparty featured a DJ set by attendee Kate Moss (all decked out in silver furs, natch). With a roster that boasted Salma Hayek, Catherine Deneuve, Marianne Faithfull, Anna Wintour, and Emmanuelle Alt among guests, this was the party to be at last night. To have a look at the museum exhibit before it’s gone, and the photo gallery from the event, check out 24 Hours Museum.

Kate Moss Lands A Major Ad Campaign

Kate Moss has long been the poster girl for anything and everything that’s glamorous, rebellious, lavish, and drenched in cigarette smoke. Her numerous turns as an actual poster girl are no less noteworthy. Whether you love or hate Kate (I love), her iconic face is inescapable season after season. Spanish retailer Mango has tapped both Kate and her friend Terry Richardson for the chain’s spring 2012 print campaign. If you recall, the model and the infamous photographer previously collaborated on this promotional video for Mango’s autumn runway show last year. This is a huge score for Mango, who has been fronted in the past by such stars as Scarlett Johansson and Penelope Cruz, because snagging Kate Moss as the face of an ad campaign lures in a whole new, previously untapped demographic: those, like me, who will unabashedly sign on for (almost) anything she shills.

Nude Kate Moss, Bare Milla Jovovich & Tons More Sexy Ladies In The 2012 Pirelli Calendar (NSFW!)

So what’s the difference between saying that the 2012 Pirelli calendar features a boatload of naked models looking smoking hot, and saying the 2012 Pirelli calendar features a crapton of nude models looking friggin’ sexy? Well, according to the art historian Kenneth Clark:

To be naked is to be deprived of our clothes, and the word implies some of the embarrassment most of us feel in that condition. The word “nude,” on the other hand, carries, in educated usage, no uncomfortable overtone. The vague image it projects into the mind is not of a huddled and defenseless body, but of a balanced, prosperous, and confident body: the body re-formed.

And all this is to say that though they may look naked, the girls in the 2012 Pirelli calendar — shot by Mario Sorrenti — are nude. But you don’t really care, do you? You just want to see what Kate Moss looks like without all of her clothes on. Well, fine, so do we. But beware, this gallery is full of boobs (so many boobs!), is pretty full frontal, and entirely NSFW.

Glamorous supermodel Kate Moss does the androgynous thing on the latest cover of Vogue Paris, where she evokes a Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie. Moss is pretty hot, and Bowie’s not too bad either, so the combination of the two on one cover is pretty powerful.

The Good, The Bad & The WTF At The 2011 British Fashion Awards

Last night, the British celebrated their own particular brand of style with the British Fashion Awards, honoring the best in designing and fashion talent from around England. Women swept the awards, winning top honors for best fashion and accessories designers — Victoria Beckham and Charlotte Dellal, respectively — while Alexander McQueen head Sarah Burton took home the award for fashion designer of the year. Alexa Chung was crowned most stylish (what is this, high school?) for the second year in a row, beating out both Kates — Middleton and Moss — and Stella McCartney, Christopher Kane and Kim Jones took home additional awards.

But what you really want to know is: what did they wear? After the jump, some of the best and worst to grace the fashion red carpet.

“The reason for Kate and this whole group of women I found that someone named ‘waifs’ was because before that, a lot of women were getting breast implants and doing things to their buttocks. It was getting out of control. I just found something so distasteful about all that. I wanted someone who was natural, always thin.”

Calvin Klein on first hiring a then 19-year-old Kate Moss to be the face of his underwear line in 1993. Moss’s slight physique led to a significant rise in waif-ish models and, of course, the “heroin chic” trend of the early/mid-’90s. While I appreciate Klein’s honestly, I find this perspective problematic as it pits one feminine ideal — big-breasted and Barbie-like — against another — hyper-thin and girlish. While this “always thin” look may come “naturally” to Moss, it doesn’t come naturally for many; eating disorder statistics are frightening proof of that. [Jezebel]
