She’s become legendary as the supermodel who hardly ever speaks in public, but it looks like we’re going to be hearing a lot more from Kate Moss these days. As part of her reported team-up with media titans Simon Cowell and Sir Phillip Green, Kate’s set to become a TV judge in a battle-of-the-bands-style show in the US.
“Kate is absolutely cock-a-hoop about her move into TV. She’s been looking for a big global project to get her teeth into for some time and the waiting has paid off. This show is going to blow every other reality series out of the water,” reports the London Paper.
Oooh, exciting. Will Kate develop a TV persona along the lines of the “hey, you did your best” Cheryl Cole/Paula Abdul mold? Or should we expect another “that was pathetic” Simon Cowell-style? Even better, perhaps she’ll be a lunatic Janice Dickinson. So many possibilities … [Photo: Getty Images]
Sir Philip Green has proved himself an astute operator by teaming up with Kate Moss, but could his new BFF (that’s Best Fashion Friend) be Whitney Houston? The rehabbed singer had previewed her comeback album a couple of nights ago at a select soiree in Knightsbridge, and Phil was so dazzled he gave her the keys to the flagship London store out of hours. We want!
“Whitney grabbed bags and bags of stuff, but only chose one item of clothing for herself. She was overheard saying her 16-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina likes Topshop, so chose everything for her – except for a Union Jack cardigan which she chose for herself. Whitney looked ecstatic, and happily posed with staff for pictures and signed autographs for them,” says a source.
Aw, that’s kind of cute. At last a middle-aged celebrity who doesn’t plan to dress half her age! The Whitney comeback starts here …
Despite being over the hump of her 35th birthday, Kate Moss has refused to relinquish her crown of being London, nay, the world’s most committed party lady. Nearly 20 years of model fame hasn’t dimmed the clotheshorse’s passion for a free bar and a chance to get snapped outside sucking on a cigarette. It’s admirable, but has so far not allowed us to peruse further into the makings of La Moss and whether there is anything more there than a set of killer cheekbones and effortless style.
But now it seems that Kate has hidden depths. First, she’s been heralded as a top counselor to Jo Wood, who was left heartbroken last summer when her Rolling Stone husband Ronnie left her for an 18-year-old cocktail waitress. “It was my friends and family who surrounded me and got me through. Kate gave me great advice … ‘Just put on a fabulous dress, get out there and party’,” explained Jo.
What’s more, canny Kate is now set to team up with overlords/business titans Sir Philip Green and Simon Cowell. She’s been offered the plum job of Director of Style and Image at their new mega-entertainment company — and if she takes it up, could see her fortune swell to an estimated $16 million. Not bad for a girl once famous for sitting topless with Marky Mark… [Photo: Splash News Online]
In news we’re not sure whether to be impressed or terrified by (we suspect both), music mogul Simon Cowell has teamed up with longtime friend and retail giant Sir Philip Green (pictured at right) to create a new uber-powerful entertainment company. The TV judge will set up the company with Kate Moss‘s Topshop boss — who’s Britain’s 9th richest person — to ensure he owns the rights of all the entertainment shows he’s involved with, from American Idol to Britain’s Got Talent and the X-Factor.
“They are talking about making profits running into billions as opposed to millions from their joint venture … they’re thinking in terms of a new Disney. What they’re planning is that big,” said a source close to the hairy-chested pair. Gulp. [Photo: Splash News Online]
…And for the first time ever, we can honestly say those two words “curvy” and “Kate” together when talking about Miss Kate Moss. The supermodel herself admitted to putting on a few more pounds earlier in the year (which led to many of those false pregnancy rumors) and she showed off her more womanly figure in the best way she knows how — by sunbathing topless on a yacht in Monaco. Woop! Kate was hanging on her Topshop business buddy Sir Philip Green‘s luxury boat — who was also topless, ladies! — and catching a few rays with his wife Christina. We’re loving Kate’s sexier new figure, and reckon she looks better than ever. What do you think? [Photo: Splash News Online]
