Kate Moss Does New York Magazine The Spring Fashion Issue

  • Pin it

Someone give me my 10 minutes back! That’s what I lost reading the New York Magazine interview with Kate Moss and Sir Philip Green!

When I first saw the cover I said um.. that’s Kate Moss? For sure? It’s not Lindsay Lohan doing one of her Marilyn games? Then I had confirmation on nymag’s website! It’s Kate Moss, covering the Spring Fashion Issue! (don’t miss the rest of the pictures after the jump!)

Before getting any further, let me just tell you that this interview kinda puts a stop to those pregnancy rumors. Because Kate proudly admits to putting a few pounds and becoming a woman now!

The interview, occasioned by the n-th opening of the Soho Topshop (opening that was so many times postponed, I’m beginning to hear someone distantly crying “Wolf!” when it comes to that shop) is something torn out of a Twilight Zone episode! The ping-pong lines, the childish and empty dissertations make me wonder what fashion is really like!

I started this website because I believed in quality, because I really do believe in professionals and my dream isn’t to attend a Fashion Week just because it’s chic to be there! Let the tents be populated by the pros. Reading about Kate Moss confessing that she can’t draw a dress, “really” even if she has her own clothing brand seriously raises my eyebrows.

I was expecting this, of course. But reading her talking about it so nonchalantly, I feel offended. Why does Kate’s Topshop Collection sell out the first day (almost every time)? Because young women want to look like Kate. Not because they appreciate her designs. Because, basically, they’re all just thieves! They want Kate’s stuffed closet!

Legally can’t so they wisely decide it makes a world of ethical difference to buy Kate Moss wardrobe inspired clothes. What happened to making your own style? (the pictures are… questionable, like someone thought we can put up with anything-Kate Moss). Well, can we? (you can read the interview here)

I like Kate Moss, I think she is good at being a model and good for her for gaining and accepting a bit of weight. But Kate knows that there are millions of Kate wannabes who wish to look like her and dress like her. She knows what looks good on her and has created a style for her self. As much as I admire her for her style I don’t wish to ape her.
Sadly there are a lot of women young and old who have no idea or imagination or the confidence to create a look for themselves so they need to ape someone. And as long as that keeps happening Kate Moss’ clothing lines for Top Shop will always sell out.
I’m sorry for you stolen 10 minutes Kpriss, maybe you will get them back via good karma? : )

for some reason, her face isn’t as striking to me as it used to be. and that is not a dig at her age.
i do like her new, more womanly figure.

Ah, the pints and beers does show now! Good ol’ England’s ways….. Let’s hope some more models start to eat properly.
Hmm, she looks here like a pretty but average housewife doing a photoshoot. Like after the “make-over”. Anyway, she still looks better than me on photos…..
But about her own style? Oh come on, its an old style that’s been a long time around. It has never really impressed me. Its a recycled style.
I wonder is Kate Moss a has been now in fashion lala-land looking fuller or has she set a new trend for more healthier looking models?

No photoshop? Of course its photoshopped. This isn’t really “Raw”, no way!

Ellington, lol! I’ll try some yoga, maybe that’ll improve my Moss-karma! (just for the record… I like-d Kate Moss too!)

deka, I think it’s the photoshoot.. Meant to show her like one of us and not like a supermodel superdiva, the Vogue kind ;) fashionably untouchable.

eve oh, I do believe they used heavy retouching.. But not the anti aliasing kind, you can still see she looks like a human being ;)

Adriana, I’ve sincerely seen bloggers dressing better than her! So I’m really not impressed by the skinny-thrifty style that goes by as the Moss-style. So I’m with you on that one!

Jesus, she’s fat

Love Kate, but she looks old and boring here. No real concept besides “KATE MOSS GOT FAT (sort of).” Not a fan.

Love the Monica Vitti-esque hairstyle

the thing is, kate moss was never actually as skinny as media want you to think. i’ve seen many skinnier models. also in each photo how skinny you look depends on pose and lighting. however i love to look this good when i’m her age (probably won’t)
