Ladies and gentlemen, The Real Kate Moss, as revealed by a prank call from a friend. More
Being the result of a very dark parent and a very light parent coming together, I neither burn nor tan when I am put in the sun — I just stay skim milk blue/white. As a result of these genetics, as well as living in California for several years, I have always been somewhat curious to see how I would look as a bronze lady. Unfortunately, I am terrified of sunless tanner, so I kind of gave up that dream years ago. But I am debating trying St. Tropez, which has just debuted Kate Moss as its new “face.” More
Is there somewhere I can sign up to raise $50k for charity by kissing somebody? No? Okay, I guess I’ll just stick to Kiva then. More
Why am I both surprised and intrigued by this particular collaboration? Because I love what’s inside, but I’m suspicious nonetheless. More
Kate Moss has long been known as fashion’s “great Sphinx,” thanks to spending the better part of the 1990s completely silent. That changed a bit when she started to brand herself and do things like design capsule collections for TopShop–but she still doesn’t speak much for someone as famous as she is. More
The fashion industry is historically pretty fond of wearing dead animals. Despite its legacy as a luxury material, however, designers tend to obscure the origin of their fur–few people like being reminded of all the suffering and sinew that goes into a pricey coat.
Conceptional artist Jess Eaton wants to address the gap between dead animals that are socially acceptable to wear and those that are not–so she made a bunch of really pretty dresses out of straight-up roadkill. More
Are we to recontextualize the somber, romantic clothes? Are all models kinds of prostitutes? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN? More
Marc Jacobs‘ Fall 2013 collection for Louis Vuitton was a more somber, refined take on his namesake collection’s punk rock aesthetic for the season. He told Grazia that he intended the Louis Vuitton woman to have “an attitude of getting dressed up only to find the most glamorous destination is one’s own hotel room.” Which is glamorous, sure, but also kind of sad.
Oh! And it had a nearly naked Kate Moss! More
Will Kate Moss ever get tired of posing for fashion n00dz, and will people ever get tired of looking at said n00dz? Doubtful! In the spring/summer issue of LOVE Magazine, Kate the Great gets her norks out for fashion photographer Tim Walker, and there is much rejoicing. There are flowers, nipples, hats, lace, and a whole bunch of other things Courtney Love probably has on her Pinterest board. There are also some sensual, hand-written quotes from Angela Carter‘s The Magic Toyshop, a 1967 British novel about a young woman’s discovery of her sexuality, because why be merely prurient when you can be literarily prurient? Happy leering. More
For their spring/summer 2013 ad campaign, Stuart Weitzman spent a dillion dollars to have Mario Testino shoot Kate Moss wearing just enough of their clothes to cover her naughty bits. One might think this would be a recipe for success, but there are two main problems as far as I can see: the poor use of Photoshop and the fact that she’s making the exact same face in every picture. I will never understand why a brand would hire a supermodel known for her ability to be expressive and then coach her into utter blandness. Unless being bland is their brand? Take a look. More
I will give you five guesses as to which totally unrecognizable starlet is on the January cover of Harper’s Bazaar Australia, because this is a hard one. More
“A sopping pair of men’s Calvin Klein briefs, pulled up over the hips, doesn’t exactly scream ‘sexy’ to us.” More
I kind of have to hand it to Kate Moss: she’s been repping hard for the itty bitty tittie committee for multiple decades now, and shows no signs of stopping. In the December issue of Interview Russia, Kate Moss and fellow super-duper-model Naomi Campbell strip down for a well overdue bit of winter naked time. Some might say this is seasonally inappropriate, but Kate and Naomi have boobs for all seasons. There is sideboob, underboob, some good old fashioned frontboob, and maybe even a tiny glimpse of friendboob. (That is when you and your friend bang your boobs together in a goofy way to signify your love. Does no one else do this?) Enjoy! More
