Kate Moss SS'14 for Topshop

It’s time to sharpen those elbow ladies, Kate the Great is back with a new, and highly anticipated, Topshop collection an achingly long three years after her last.  In a range that is considered to be a ‘wardrobe autobiography,’ we are set to expect fringe jackets and 1970’s boho dresses galore, recreating the perfect festival, rock’n’roll vibe that over the years the supermodel style icon has been famous for.  

The collection (ranging from £30.00 to £600.00!) boasts a wide range of styles comprising four style stories (Balearic Dressing, Pyjama Dressing, Cocktail Hour and Tailoring Noir), which everything from beach kaftans to pyjama-inspired pieces (which I have my beady eyes on) and sparkling evening-wear, including the one Kate Moss wore on the cover of this month’s British Vogue. Prepare for a scrum Ladies!!

"I am very excited to create a new collection that bears my name. Now more than ever with London being at the forefront of fashion as it feels like I'm back home working with Topshop"  - Kate Moss.

Below:  Some of The London Chatter's favourite pieces from the collection...

The Kate Moss for Topshop collection is available online and in store from April 30th.

Kate Moss Collects BRIT Award for David Bowie

When 67 year old David Bowie was unable to pick up his Best Album award last night, the now oldest Brit Award winner in history sent Kate Moss in his place… as you do… or at least, as Bowie does. The supermodel strutted onto stage to accept the award wearing the ultimate in rock star vintage attire; Bowie’s red ‘Woodland Creatures’ playsuit, printed with white rabbits, from his 1970’s Ziggy Stardust Years. Epic! Kate has long since been a friend and big fan of Bowie, and has covered both British and French Vogue editions made up as the celebrated singer in 2003 and 2012 respectively (below).     

"Is it still raining? I hadn't noticed..."

"Is it still raining?  I hadn't noticed..."  THE worst line in film history but very much resonating today!  I'm ignoring this foul and dreary weather whilst hibernating with the March edition of Vogue, some Camomile tea (mug by Emma Bridgewater, for similar: HERE) and some hot toast with oooooodles of honey.  Richard Curtis would be jolly proud.

Kate Moss Joins British Vogue as Contributing Editor

And just when I thought that NOTHING could possibly bring a smile to my face on this miserably rainy day, British Vogue Editor Alexandra Shulman announces that Kate Moss will join the magazine as a contributing editor from Spring 2014.  Ohhh, I’m smiling!!  Shulman revealed, "I am absolutely delighted that Kate is going to work with us in this new role. Her undoubtedly brilliant sense of style, depth of fashion knowledge, and understanding of what makes a wonderful image will be exciting to see used in the pages of British Vogue. I am really looking forward to working with her on ideas." 
With the supermodel having covered an amazing 33 issues of British Vogue since 1993 (most of which I have meticulously stockpiled on my bookshelf at home) I can’t imagine anyone more qualified for this coveted role. 

"We are absolutely thrilled at Kate's appointment," said Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Models, who represent Moss. "This is a natural development in her remarkable career.  Bringing her unique  sense of style and  creative sensibility to Vogue is the perfect fit. She is the definitive Vogue cover girl." 
This announcement comes only a week after it was revealed that Kate would once again resume her design collaboration with Topshop, with her next collection to be launched in April 2014. 

Alexa Chung's 3rd British Vogue Cover

I cannot wait to get my hands on Alexa Chung’s THIRD British Vogue cover, photographed by Patrick Demarchelier. I love Alexa’s well documented, nonchalant style, and this editorial goes to show exactly why; who else could look so effortlessly tomboy cool whilst wearing such pretty, romantic and girly gowns?!

To celebrate her October Vogue cover, Alexa has taken over Vogue.co.uk to share with us her own take on fashion history, beauty, culture and shopping - as well as revealing more details  from her book, 'IT'  (details of her book launch found here).

Emma Stone - In Vogue

Forget ripped denim and peplums, Emma Stone is officially the new Black. 

In the space of a mere month, the 23 year old Spider-Man actress has covered THREE editions of Vogue and quite frankly, I could do with a few more.

Emma Stone covered July’s US Vogue, and August’s Teen Vogue and British Vogue (the latter, naturally, being my favourite where Emma wears a veritable feast of Autumn/Winter’12 trends and is interviewed by the gorgeous Alexa Chung.)

Emma Stone has long been my ‘one to watch’ on the red carpet and I loved seeing her stunning, highly anticipated, premiere choices whilst promoting the new Spider-Man film, which she stars in alongside her real-life British-beau, Andrew Garfield.

Above: Wow. Emma Stone wearing Chanel and spikey Louboutin's at the LA premiere.

L-R: Dolce & Gabanna in Spain, Andrew Gn in Berlin, Emilio Pucci in Moscow.

L-R: An Ellie Saab jumpsuit in London, Gucci in Paris, Bottega Veneta in Rome.

Gorgeous, talented and dating Spider-Man. This girl rocks.

The Amazing Spider-Man is at cinemas now. 

Kate Moss Covers British Vogue June 2012

With red lips, retro curls, a white gladiator Versace dress and Kara Ross Crescent earrings, Kate Moss smolders on the cover of this month’s 'Going for Gold' British Vogue.  

Only weeks ahead of this summer’s Olympic Games and Jubilee celebrations, this remarkable, and distinctly patriotic, edition of Vogue pays tribute to both British sporting legends and national treasures alike. 

This is thirty-eight year old Croydon-born supermodel Kate Moss’ 32nd British Vogue cover and she was shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott looking every inch an Olympic goddess and British beauty.


Snap!  Does Kate Moss’ pose, clutching a thick coil of rope look familiar?  A couple of years ago photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott used the exact same rope (right) in their Emporio Armani campaign, featuring yet another national treasure (and British beauty!) David Beckham.

Versace studded leather and silk dress (from £4,030) and Kara Ross Crescent earrings, (£100) are available from Harvey Nichols.
