Whoever says Kate Moss doesn’t have it going on anymore is dead wrong. This new ad for Yves Saint Laurent‘s Parisienne fragrance in which she stars is scorching hot. Frankly, I don’t even know what Kate is doing there, but it makes me want to buy a bottle immediately. [Fashion Copious] Keep reading »
Sigh. I love The Daily Mail so much. You never know what those crazy British birds are gonna do next! Today it’s a “real woman” — cough, intrepid journalist, cough — Claire Coleman modeling clothes from the brand new Kate Moss for Topshop line. Her reasoning:
“When I see Kate Moss in a dress, I’m not just looking at the dress, I’m looking at Kate Moss and the dress. And however beautiful the dress, I can’t help thinking that it’s going to look an awful lot better on her than it does on me. Moss may not be getting any younger, but she still has the gamine proportions of the 16-year-olds who seem to form the backbone of Topshop’s customer base. The question is can real women like me and my friends, who are rather closer in age to Miss Moss, actually wear any of the clothes she is offering?”
Ain’t that the question indeed, sis! This definitely makes me consider how sometimes we buy clothes for all the wrong reasons. But that’s about it. Keep reading »
We love this image from Kate Moss‘ new fall Topshop collection, but the snagged tights give us pause. Since last time we were caught with major runs in our stockings we were embarrassed and had to pop home for another pair, we can’t wait to say, “I meant to look like this,” next time it happens.

I posed nude once. The photographer was a professional and a friend, and the scene was a sound stage. The photos were black and white, and you couldn’t really see anything, as I covered up my naughty bits. It was pretty fun actually, and kind of freeing. If you’ve been wondering what it would be like to be shot in the nude, but you’ll only drop trou for a top-notch photog, this is your lucky day. Rankin has shot everyone from Britney Spears to Kate Moss to Queen Elizabeth II, and his high-gloss images have become iconic. For Rankin Live, he’ll be shooting aspiring nudes on August 29. If you are “feeling frisky” all you have to do is send him an email entitled: “Shoot Me Nude.” The catch? You have to be in the UK to do it. Keep reading »
Today the Daily Mail reports that Kate Moss, presumably horrified by the recent unflattering photos of her looking a bit un-supermodel-like on vacay in St Tropez, is going on a health kick. “A source said: ‘Kate didn’t like seeing pictures of the state of her skin while she was on holiday. She knows it’s down to her lifestyle, so she is deciding to try a particular health plan to help regain a fresh look.’” The idea is to take 10 years off. Perhaps she’ll consult GOOP for fasting regimens?
Seriously though, here’s why this kind of sucks.

Kate Moss is hotter than ever these days. She’s killing it in new Prada and Just Cavalli campaigns, gracing the September covers of W and Russian Vogue, and recent business dealings with Simon Cowell and Philip Green indicate that the model-turned-designer is also entering into entertainment mogul territory. But the Daily Mail, one of the UK’s most entertaining and trashtastic papers, is always ready to cut a celeb down to size, and they love their Kate pot shots. This time, however, they’ve gone too far. Keep reading »
Kate Moss continues her gig as spokesmodel for Just Cavalli in the new Mert and Marcus-shot fall 2009 campaign. As in the spring ads, they love to have some menfolk in the mix, but this time around she’s been downgraded from two male models to one. Does the recession know no bounds!? Oh, wait. Hold on. We’ve got a lurker back there on the stairs. Carry on, then. [Fashion Week Daily] Keep reading »
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]
