Remember when we told you Kate Moss was officially in cahoots with Simon Cowell and Philip Green to start a fashion and entertainment mega-company? Well, they aren’t wasting any time getting started on that whole world-domination thing. According to the UK’s The Mirror, Miss Moss and Cowell will sit on a panel of experts in the search to discover the next super-group like Coldplay or Oasis. Sort of like Diddy’s “Making The Band” crossed with “Britain’s Got Talent.” I wonder who Kate will be? Simon’s got the hard-ass personality covered. I can’t picture her playing the Randy role—she’s not big or totally lovable. We’ll find out soon enough: the show is expected to be launched in the US, and the Brits will get a spinoff following. Huh. Kate on TV? I’m not sure I can picture it, especially because not that long ago, she was caught with a mound of coke on film, not to mention the fact that we’ve heard her speak very little over the years. Kind of exciting though, no? [The Mirror] Keep reading »
A new business partner, that is. Miss Moss is teaming up with her old Topshop crony, Sir Philip Green [She calls him "Uncle Phil!" -- Editor], and Mr. Got-Talent himself, Simon Cowell, to build a mega-fashion-entertainment empire. They’re talking a company big enough to rival that of Disney. While Moss won’t be ponying up any starter cash, her part in the deal is substantial, says the U.K.’s Daily Mail: “Kate has been signed as a figurehead and style setter for the fashion end of the business. She will bring her expertise to the table, advising on all branding and style for clothes, hair and accessories. She will also be involved in finding and signing new bands and promoting them. Something that has also been talked about is Kate developing her own singing career and starting a music label.” Now, who was it that said aging supermodels aren’t money-makers? Kate, at 35 years old, begs to differ. But bigger than Disney!? We’re kind of in awe imagining what this power threesome might be capable of. [Daily Mail]

In 2000, after a Harper’s Bazaar shoot, photographers Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin were hanging around with model Kate Moss, drinking and dancing. Then, Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” came one, and Kate started channeling the King of Pop, trying out gestures, footwork, and, of course, the infamous crotch-thrust-and-grab. And they caught it all on video. [SHOWstudio]

I really enjoyed playing with paper dolls when I was younger. Didn’t you? Well if not, you can make up for the lost opportunity with today’s more fashionable paper dolls. London-based artist I Love Mel has created Kate Moss and Agyness Deyn paper dolls that are sure to recapture your childhood, if you dare to open the packaging. Each of the dolls comes with fashions that the supermodels would actually wear — flannel for Agy and stripes and vests for Kate. If you’d like to take more creative license, there’s also the Colour Me Good Kate Moss coloring book. See the Agyness paper doll after the jump [I Love Mel via Refinery 29] Keep reading »
Kate Moss, crazy bitch. Recently, when the model got in a big ol’ fight with boyfriend Jamie Hince recently, she threw his laptop in the pool in a rage. Six songs that were recorded for The Kills’ (that’s Hince’s band) forthcoming record were stored on the laptop — and they weren’t backed up anywhere else. Kate was able to grovel and plead for Hince’s forgiveness — who knows about the rest of the band. This reminds me of the time Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes from TLC (she’s now deceased) set fire to her athlete boyfriend’s shoe collection in a fiberglass bathtub which caused his entire house to catch fire and burn down. The lesson? Think twice before acting like a crazy bitch. The damage can be more than intended. I’ve already told you about that one time I pushed a guy I was in love with into (slow-moving) traffic because he didn’t love me back. No damage was done, luckily, but I do not recommend. After the jump, some real women share their worst “crazy bitch” moments. Keep reading »
Those of you who don’t live in downtown New York may not be familiar with the new Calvin Klein Jeans billboard gracing a corner in Soho. Let me explain: the thing is enormous, taking up the entire side of a building, and its four scantily-clad participants look just about ready to have a tired, drunken threesome. (Well, three of them might, anyway. The fourth dude is just so over it and needs a nap on the ground.) In short, it is incredibly hot in a sweaty, semi-trashy way. And sometimes, that’s all you need.

Calvin Klein once said, “Models aren’t supposed to think.” We wonder what he’s thinking now that his former poster girl, Kate Moss, is penning an autobiography that’s suspected to be a deep reflection on her career and relationships. Moss isn’t the first model to tell her story. Famed catwalkers like Iman and Janice Dickinson have published books, as well, proving that models have dishy stories to share — and can write. After the jump, four books by models to keep you satiated until Moss’s release.

Kate Moss has agreed to write a “no-holds barred” autobiography, which will be published by Virgin Books. Richard Branson, who has been friends with Kate since she was 15 and owns a stake in Virgin Books, says the book will contain not only salacious details about Kate’s life, but also anecdotes about her celebrity friends. The book deal, which is valued at an estimated $1.5 million, was agreed upon way back in 2006, but publication was delayed to let Kate repair her reputation after she got busted on camera snorting cocaine.
After the jump, the questions we want Kate to answer. If they’re not addressed, we’ll expect a full refund from Barnes & Noble. Keep reading »
