? Fashion (look to the left) | Main | White Stripes feat. Kate Moss: I just don't know what to do with myself ?

September 22, 2005

Snowed under

Actress and chanteuse, Jennifer Love Hewitt keeps abreast of the Kate Moss cocaine scandal saying, "Coffee's one thing, but coke is another" and that high-street retailers, Hennes & Mauritz may have done Moss a favour by distancing themselves from their spokesmodel. H+M are not alone as Chanel, Burberry and Rimmel scramble to protect their brands. The Daily Mirror may have kicked off this nonsense but it is the behaviour of these companies, and not Moss, that is truly scandalous. I find it difficult to believe anyone attracted by the image of sex, glamour and a little danger these brands wish to project is going to be startled at the thought of a supermodel behaving badly. Burberry is a Chav favourite, H+M sell knock-offs of proper clothing and Chanel has not produced anything interesting excepting advertising since the 1950s. So, while Jennifer Love Hewitt is correct to say they have done Moss a favour she has got the favour backwards. Moss is well rid of the lot of them.

Update: Not that any of the above makes me less curious about the reported incriminating video footage itself. At least one Flea-reader has requested a link and I would be grateful if anyone spotting it could let me know. In the meantime is Kate Moss' reported reaction.

Asked about our exclusive video clips of her hoovering up the Class A drug, she said: "A video? What video? F*** off, I don't want to know."

Questioned if she wanted to talk about taking drugs, the 31-year-old supermodel then raged: "F*** off, f*** off, f*** off, f*** off! Just f*** off!"

And quite right, too.

"Coffee's one thing, but coke is another"

Yeah, does coffee make one feel INVINCIBLE?

I think not.

Cocaine abuse in the modelling world...who'd a thunk it? I mean the claimed ignorance to this behaviour in both the press and the fashion business is hilarious.
