Who needs blood when you’ve got lipstick? Now that’s an artsy phrase wrote for our very dearest fashionista, Kate Moss!
And it’s not just a random phrase, it’s written on a painting! On Kate Moss’ self portrait! She drew herself for eternity when she was going strong with Pete Doherty, the modern poet. Pete actually sold the portrait with a hand receipt written, of course, on a napkin from Soho House, the private club. The buyer (unknown) sells the glorious piece of blood and lipstick art on paper to the highest bidder, in London’s auction house Lyon & Turnbull. It’s maybe not your average fashion subject, but it seems that blood art is considered somehow interesting. As far as I’m concerned, I think Kate’s art got what it deserved in the first place – being sold with a napkin receipt in a bar (I think I would actually have preferred it in lipstick). Do you fancy this portrait? Is it really artsy?
