Kate Moss is causing havoc in Paris.
The 37-year-old British supermodel just walked the runway for Louis Vuitton's Spring/Summer 2012 runway collection for Paris Fashion Week. While 37-years-old is so far past retirement for most models, Kate Moss will be pushing a walker down the runway when she's 85, puffing on an electronic cigarette and wearing a LBD with plunging neckline like it's no big deal.
Kate closed out the Marc Jacobs designed LV show last night in a white laser-cut feathered mini-dress. She wowed audiences proving that yep, Kate Moss has still got it. The catwalk wrapped itself around a sparkling white carousel while famous faces like Uma Thurman, Alexa Chung, Rachel Zoe, Olivia Wilde, Nicole Richie and Anna Wintour sat front row.
This catwalk turn was far better received than when she walked the runway for Louis Vuitton's Autumn/winter 2011 where she caused stir when she walked the show smoking a cigarette and wearing tiny leather hotpants in a French-maid themed collection.
Why anyone was surprised that a model was smoking a cigarette is beyond me. Did people forget the fact that Kate Moss rose to fame because of all the coke she's done? The audiences should be more surprised if she walked the runway eating a hamburger.
But that wasn't all Kate was doing in Paris. She also just launched her first jewelry collection last night. Kate has collaborated with British retailer Topshop and French label Longchamp for women’s wear and handbag lines, but this is her first jewelry collection. She debuted the launch of Kate Moss for Fred at the Ritz Hotel and Moss arrived fashionably late, rolling up at midnight with none other than Christian Louboutin as her date.
Kate Moss WOULD have Christian Louboutin as her date. My goodness, I don't know how she does it, but all gay men would take a bullet for Kate Moss if given the opportunity.
Arriving at her design debut, she wore a gold lamé blouse, black leggings and Louboutin's classic black pointed stilettos, she could have passed for any girl on any American Apparel poster, but since this is Kate Moss, she rocked it.
All items in the collection revolve around the star, crescent moon and anchor symbol proving that Moss's talents are better used on the catwalk and NOT as a designer. Star earrings? Really? Apparently those designs are based off tattoos she has.
This 22-piece-collection will start in price at around $700 dollars and can be purchased at UK department stores like Harrods and online.
