Kate Moss and Vogue UK go together like ham and cheese. Like peanut butter and jelly. Like crimson and clover. Like yin and yang. So while it isn’t too surprising to see Moss’ visage on the cover of the magazine’s June issue, it should be a little striking to know that this is Moss’ 32nd appearance on the front page of the fashion tome. Here, my 12 favorite Kate Moss Vogue UK cover looks. Keep reading »
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.

Kate Moss is gorgeous, but is she funny? This clip of her and Stella McCartney going head-to-head against Patsy from “Absolutely Fabulous” puts her to the test.
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]
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 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.
