Monster Children Wants Kate Moss With Clothes On!

  • Pin it

Though it may sound like complete madness, it’s true! Someone, somewhere (and not over the rainbow but right here, on our very dear Earth), present time, stopped a magazine from being published because Kate Moss was on the cover. Topless! Monsters Children (out Friday) will have to change the original cover picture.

The pictures they prevented from spreading was taken by Hedi Slimane and it previously made the ups and downs of the esteemed fashblogosphere (and newsstands, biensur) with Libération. (the story continues right after the jump!)

Kate Moss Hedi Slimane Monster Children cover

Photographed by Hedi Slimane for a special celebration: Woman’s Day (in France), Kate Moss half-undressed, dechirée, desenchantée and whatevé else was an honorable sight in Europe. Stateside, however, it’s another story! Moster Children it’s a seven-year old subculture magazine that was hoping to breakthrough with their 23rd issue, The Photo Issue featuring topless Kate Moss on the cover. But no-oh! The editors put a stop to that and ordered Monster Children to put some clothes on Kate! (I would’ve made something with that cigarette too, since the photo’s going for the crop anyway!) Take that, Europe! (the topless cover will, however, be available in selected bookstores and for some lucky subscribers – more details here) (via)

Take that Europe? LOL! I’m always Dutch first not a European.
Being one of the editors I would have had more objections against this old photos! Nothing new……?

Oh, and the small always a bit naughty Netherlands don’t care about the original “Coco Avant Chanel” either. While the French do!
I’m afraid though one day we have “European rules” until now I vote against it. (Sorry off-topic.)

Why should it be off topic since I’m the fiercest non-smoking editor there is in the fashblogosphere! Not even the French can top me! ;)

The world has seen Kate Moss topless (and smoking) so many times before that seeing her with clothes on would actually make a rare photo shoot! Hence, a must!

Kpriss, I’m a non-smoker btw before you jump to the wrong conclusion.
I’ve watched the pilot of Mad Men and oh, my god, how much people smoke in that series…..ugh, ugh, ugh….or Coco Chanel (in the movie) worked with cigarette between her lips so close to the fabrics….arrghh, that made me shiver..

Right, an undressed, smoking Kate Moss: we’ve seen that enough now.
