Age 15, Cover for Face magazine. This photo is what got her noticed by Calvin Klein, with whom she would have a longstanding modeling career.

Trends may come and go but even among this fashion-conscious crowd there was one certainty: all eyes would be on Kate Moss.

KATE MOSS IN VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

The world has always had a lot to say about Kate Moss. Interestingly enough, the world says way more than the famously silent supermodel would ever had to say about herself. We all know her face, but few of us would recognize her voice if we heard it.

So why does the world love looking at Kate Moss?  She was never the archetypal model.  She has a long trunk, short legs and the most beautiful, breathtaking face.

That’s My Bitch

Maybe its the rocker-chick that we are not able to resist.  Maybe it’s her personal style off camera.  Or maybe its simply the air of mystery.

Kate Moss is just 40 years old, but her career already spans four calendar decades. In our opinion, that’s damn impressive in a business where models face involuntary retirement in their early 20’s.

Kate Moss debuted a collection of champagne coupes molded from her own left breast

To celebrate 25 years of modeling, Kate Moss celebrated Marie Antoinette style. The fashion industry elite and celebrities toasted at a fancy London restaurant to celebrate the iconic model’s career. Guests didn’t sip from ordinary champagne flutes, however, instead the party sipped from champagne glasses molded from Kate’s iconic breasts.

Indulge in Kate Moss. The queen of the glossy pages of fashion magazines.

We just had to say congrats on 25 years of modeling dear majesty.

Vivienne Westwood wants YOU

page_va_fashion_vivienne_westwood_01_1209061522_id_564674Calling all poets and scribes. Vivienne Westwood wants YOU.  No, we’re not off our rocker, she actually does, and it’s all in attempt to campaign against climate change.

Ever the activist (and a poet herself, didn’t you know?) the punk designer is calling out to young Londoners, asking them to put pen to paper in support of her Climate Revolution campaign, while channeling her mantra of, “buy less, choose well, make it last.” Here, here.

Coming up quickly off the back of Prada’s recently launched writing contest, Westwood reminds us, “the world needs poets.” Working in collaboration with YouYou Mentoring, the poetry competition – sorry, “literary project” – is open to 17-to-21-year-olds, and the prize is a series of mentoring master classes. As if Dame Westwood’s golden seal of approval wasn’t enough? Reckon you’ve got what it takes? You’ve got until June 24 to pen your piece. (Telegraph) (Refinery29)
