Turns out hairstylist Oribe Canales, who last week let it slip that Kate Moss will appear on an upcoming cover of Playboy, isn't the only world-class artist involved with the production of the much talked-about shoot. According to Page Six, noted fashion photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott shot the cover, and Moss herself has reportedly commissioned artist Chuck Close to create a work of art based on the resulting photographs. None of the people who are said to be involved with the cover — other than Canales — have offered hard-and-fast confirmation on it, and a Playboy representative said in a statement that the magazine had no comment "one way or the other." The cover, rumours of which began circulating this March, would coincide with Playboy's 60th anniversary and with Moss's 40th birthday — making it a big milestone for both the model and the magazine.
Despite what you may think about Kate Moss being the most beautiful lady in all of the land, she recently lost out on the title of Most Influential Beauty Icon to Kate Middleton in the UK. As it turns out, The Duchess of Cambridge not only surpassed Ms. Moss, but she also attained more votes than Angelina Jolie, Cara Delevingne and Victoria Beckham.
The resutls come from a poll created by British website Feelunique.com. Furthermore, "The Kate effect" has crossed over from fashion into the beauty arena too, proving that one in three women would buy a beauty product that Kate herself uses. Only 15 percent would do the same for Kate Moss. Don't believe me? Well, a representative from mega beauty brand Lancôme said that their Genifique Youth-Enhancing Serum ($55) skyrocketed in UK sales after the results of this poll were published.
Before the Coco Rochas and Chanel Imans of the modeling world, there were "The Big Six," a crop of supermodels who dominated all things hair, fashion, and makeup in the late 1980s and early 1990s. These days, actresses and pop stars often fill the positions left behind by these powerhouse models. So, let's take a trip down memory lane to see how much these six ladies have — and haven't — changed.

If last week was all about the red carpet (hello Met Gala madness!), then this week is all about off-duty celebrity style. Stars are ditching the big gowns and designer names for effortless, low-key looks. Snapped on the streets of New York or LA, jumping on (or off) an international flight, or just going about their day to day — these A-listers all rely on a concise edit of wardrobe staples. After some close and very serious analysis, we think we've cracked the off-duty style code. Step inside to see how they do it, shop the core items, then pepare to get papped!
Kate Moss spent quality time with her husband, Jamie Hince, and his parents on the weekend. The supermodel linked arms with her mother-in-law, Carole Hince, when they arrived back at her home in Cotswold after having a family lunch at a pub nearby. Jamie walked behind with his father, William.
It was a low-key outing for the rock couple, who recently attended a wild ’80s-themed party with friends such as Stella McCartney and Fran Cutler. It was also revealed last week that Kate is the new face — and body — of St. Tropez, and in the sexy new advertisements she’s not wearing anything except a St. Tropez tan.

Kate Moss showed off her flawless figure when she posed nude for her new St. Tropez ad. She was recently named the face of the self-tanning product line and the skin-baring campaign marks Kate's first for the brand. Kate was excited about her new appointment with St. Tropez, sharing, "I'm so excited to be working with St. Tropez. I've been using the products since they started and it's really a trustworthy, cool brand." It seems Kate really does trust St. Tropez since she shed all of her clothes for the risqué shoot.
Her new ad is not the only place Kate is making waves, as she is also prepping for her June Vogue UK cover launch. The issue will be the publication's first double issue with Miss Vogue, which features Kate on the cover along with alternate versions starring model Cara Delevingne.
You heard it here first, ladies. Our Mossy is the new face of St. Tropez and we've got some exclusive pictures of the supermodel shooting the campaign. But that's not all! We're also diving deep into the realm of self-tanning with St. Tropez skin finishing expert, Nichola Joss. "Today’s shoot is pool side; it is all about getting that beautiful, glowing, golden pool side tan," said Nichola on shoot day.

It was a fun-filled seven days for our favourite celebrities this week, with movie premieres and stylish parties dominating the agenda. Kate Moss and Stella McCartney showed us how it was done in the '80s with a wild surprise party for a close friend, while Australian Princess Mary was celebrating in a very different way as Prince Willem-Alexander took the Danish throne after his mother's abdication. The Great Gatsby and Star Trek: Into Darkness premieres ensured we were supplied with plenty of red carpet sightings, including Leonardo DiCaprio and Zoe Saldana, while on set in New York, Girls stars Lena Dunham and Adam Driver got us excited for the third season. And on a beach in Miami? Julianne Hough and Nina Dobrev braided each others' hair. Cute. Click through to see all the pictures from this busy week!
Kate Moss was the life of the party in London last night! Along with her husband, Jamie Hince, mum Linda Moss, and friends like Stella McCartney and Rhys Ifans, Kate put on her finest '80s gear to mark the 50th birthday of their pal Fran Cutler at the Groucho Club. Fran, a PR executive, has been friends with Kate for years, and their many mutual friends helped pull off the surprise bash, which included many unique moments, from a This-Is-Your-Life-style presentation from Rhys and a set from Rita Ora.
Rita was there with her BFF Cara Delevingne. 20-year-old Cara and 22-year-old Rita's social circles have overlapped with Kate's now that Rita is romantically linked to Kate's good friend Dave Gardner, who's also close with David Beckham. Rita and Cara both dressed up for the period theme, though Kate topped them all by pulling out a second ensemble for the after party at The Box.
