”[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.
These photos of Rihanna and Best Supermodel of All Time Kate Moss getting a bit Sapphic are pretty hot. Photographed for the latest issue of V magazine, the pair are rather good at affecting a lesbian lover kind of vibe. We’re feeling it. Check out the additional photos after the jump.

“I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18, when I had to go and work with Marky Mark. It didn’t feel like me at all. I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn’t like it. I couldn’t get out of bed for two weeks. I thought I was going to die. I went to the doctor and he said, ‘I’ll give you some Valium.’
It was just anxiety. Nobody takes care of you mentally. There’s a massive pressure to do what you have to do (and) I was really little … I didn’t like it. But it was work, and I had to do it.”
– Kate Moss describes the effects of the photoshoot with Mark Wahlberg that produced an iconic Calvin Klein ad campaign and helped make her one of the highest paid supermodels in the world. I really admire her for being so honest about this, but I’ve gotta say, this quote makes me incredibly sad. Keep reading »
Kate Moss really opens up in a new Vanity Fair interview, discussing all those years of “heroin chic” talk and anorexia rumors, her relationship with Johnny Depp, and more. Highlights:
- On heroin chic: “I had never even taken heroin—it was nothing to do with me at all. I think Corinne [Day]—she wasn’t on heroin but always loved that Lou Reed song, that whole glamorizing the squat, white-and-black and sparse and thin, and girls with dark eyes. She loved that look.” Read more…
It’s so utterly strange to see supermodel Kate Moss proffer up a genuine smile, so we felt the need to record it. Here she is with her daughter Lila Grace (whose father is ex Jefferson Hack), single-handedly bolstering the video rental market, because of course Kate Moss is too cool for a Netflix account.

Kate Moss is — what? — like 45? And she’s smoked and drank and drugged her way through most of her life? And still, she looks so dreamy and perfect. It’s so annoying. Here she is in a new ad for Rag & Bone clothing, looking near perfect. She’s just proof positive that clean living will get you absolutely nowhere.
The elusive Kate Moss rarely does interviews, but on the off occasion she does, she manages to give some pretty entertaining sound bites. In an interview with Italian fashion weekly Grazia, the British supermodel discussed her frequent wardrobe malfunctions, her husband’s say in her sartorial choices (he likes her when she’s a “rock ‘n’ roll kind of girl”), and walking her new dog. That’s right: Kate Moss has a dog.
“I’ve got a dog. He’s eight months. So I’ve got a dog, and the dog’s making me more ‘day.’ It’s a nightmare. … I’m having to rethink everything. You can’t walk a dog in a heel. You look ridiculous.”
