Today’s must-reads from around the Internet.
In these uncertain times, you shouldn’t be making any shaky investments.
Gold. Bitcoins. Pleated trousers. All too risky.
Luckily, our pals over at UrbanDaddy just tipped us off to the latest Christie’s auction dedicated solely to the very bankable Kate Moss—for the most part, it’s photographs, but there’s at least one woven tapestry of her face in the mix. And in our professional opinion, there’s no stronger financial move right now than Kate Moss.
Last week, we heard from someone, who heard from someone else, who heard from her hairstylist, that Kate Moss will be toplessly gracing the cover of Playboy’s upcoming January 2014 issue.
You know, all reliable sources.
Don’t get us wrong, we’re very excited about it. Though it is kind of a long time to wait for a girl who hasn’t exactly been nudity-averse for the majority of her career.
There were a lot of stylish men in 2011, and we did our best to wade through them all, week by week, and pick out the best ones.
Some were just good. Others were frighteningly great. And then, there were the five best—the five gentlemen who stood atop humanity in an impeccably cut tuxedo, basking in their own handsomeness and the potential for human achievement. Those are the five we bring to your attention today…
Any day that sees you marrying Kate Moss is bound to be a good day.
But this past Friday, the Kills’ Jamie Hince took it one step further by joining the crowded pantheon of well-dressed rock ‘n’ roll grooms.
Instead of a tux, he opted for a powder blue double-breaster from YSL, the middle ground between Parisian chic and 80s prom. It’s sharp, but just skuzzy enough to leave his punk cred untouched—like something Mick Jagger would have worn. Throw on aviators for extra swagger, and he’s managed the impossible: getting married without settling down.
Naturally, the flower girls were impressed.
Charity has its rewards. Especially in London, it turns out.
At a hospital benefit, Kate Moss raised 5000 UKP by auctioning off a single kiss. Of course, the true value of Mme. Moss’s momentary affection is priceless, but in the interest of a well-funded health system, it’s worth knowing what the price tag came to. It should be enough to buy an extra defibrillator or two…
We can only imagine what the tab would have been in more flush times.
Back in 2006, the British graffiter pasted Ms. Moss’s face over a famous Warhol print of Marilyn Monroe, making a tidy 96,000 UKP for a set of six prints. With that kind of payoff, it’s hard to resist a flip or two, so the owners are putting them back on the block, expecting up to 150,000 in return.
Even given the economy, we think it’s a safe bet. Kate’s look of vague disgust has never been more appropriate.
Found at the Arts Gallery in London, it’s part of a larger series of portraits of gossip mag staples, done by painter Yuko Nasu without any knowledge of who the faces are. We can’t say much for the likeness, but we think they captured Ms. Moss’s essence pretty well.
Especially the swirling around the eyes…
