Kate Moss’ First-Ever Modeling Directive: “Pretend You’re Bored Waiting at the Bus Stop”

admin
270

New intel on the start of Kate Moss' career has a gem too good to ignore. Photographer Owen Scarbiena was tasked with taking some images of the just-discovered 14-year-old and quickly found her to be a natural who was easy to work with (and totally understood the mood he wanted to capture).

"Some girls come with a ready-made photo pose, and you have to work through that," he told The Telegraph. "I just said to Kate, 'Pretend you're bored waiting at the bus stop,' and she got it." The world should be pleased Scarbiena and Moss spoke the same language—who knows whether a photographer with a different style could have pried out the vibe that created one of history's biggest supermodels. And while toothy, happy shots of the Brit aren't impossible to find, it's fair to say her signature look is more of the sulky variety (which, per this reveal, might be best described as boredom).

The photographer also revealed that Moss came in with zero "pre-conceived ideas about how models are supposed to pose or stand. She was unimposing, innocent, fresh, unaffected and had a striking, nymph-like beauty," he told British Vogue.

Scarbiena's photos of Moss will be exhibited at Kate Moss: Unseen in London later this month.

February 11 will mark the six-year anniversary of the untimely death of British fashion designer, Alexander McQueen—and even posthumously, his life and work continue to captivate.

WWD broke the news today that Hollywood director, Andrew Haigh is working on a biopic on the groundbreaking designer. According to sources, the director optioned the 2015 eye-opening biography, "Alexander McQueen: Blood Beneath The Skin" by Andrew Wilson, which charts the designer's career and offers interviews from his friends and family.

The news of the film, comes on the heels of “McQueen,” which was performed in London and extended due to its success.

As designers go, Lee (as he was known to friends) was one of the most elusive and controversial designers out there. He didn't do many interviews, TV shows or personal appearances, like most designers do today. His shows were polarizing and often shocking (think: a robotic arm shooting paint at model Shalom Harlow in a white dress in one, the Little Red Riding Hood-inspired show where models walked down the runway with wolves), but also breathtakingly beautiful, with exquisite tailoring and attention to detail.

We'll keep you posted on the details on the film as they come, but until then, here are some things you can hope to see in the film, as they were featured in Wilson's book:

Kate Moss Says She Has a Secret Instagram Account, But Isn’t So Good at Taking Selfies

While plenty of style students live and breath believing Kate Moss is sartorial perfection, the supermodel has to admit something: She's hopeless at taking selfies. "I don't know how to take a good selfie," she admitted to a British glossy, adding that she only joined Instagram (with a secret account!) in order to keep tabs on friends and family. "I have to, otherwise I wouldn't know what anyone was talking about."

Kate Moss Says She Has a Secret Instagram Account, But Isn't So Good at Taking Selfies

This is how Kate Moss does a pub lunch in the fall: plaid, leopard, and fringed ankle boots

Her public absence from social media sets her starkly apart from today's supermodels, who have truly built their careers with armies of followers. Cara Delevingne, a catwalker who's worked with Moss on Burberry and Mango campaigns, has a more prolific online profile, but it doesn't mean she's blind to the valuable lessons she can learn from the super.

"She taught me to be my own person and to say no and to not live for other people," Delevingne said of Moss. We love that life advice even if you're not a world-famous model.

So, this means Kate Moss' stunning house definitely doesn't have a selfie station à la Kylie Jenner, right?

People in Louisiana Just Can’t Get Enough ’90s Fashion Trends, According to Google Data

Combat boots. Levi's 501s. Slip-dresses. Plaid. Dark lipstick. Not only are all of these things totally on-trend right now, but half of them appeared on the recent spring 2016 runways, too. Looks like dressing like it's 1994 is not going anywhere any time soon.

Which is fine by us. Most of us grew up during that era and have nothing but fond feelings for all things grunge, raver, minimalist, and neo-hippie. And, according to Google, we're not the only ones. Not only does The New York Times agree with us, but so does, seemingly, everyone else—especially people in Louisiana. The term "90s clothing" reached an apex of Internet popularity in early 2013, and ever since then, the number of searches for "90s fashion" on Google has sky-rocketed, with the state taking the lead on searching the term.

Not that this is all that surprising. After all, everyone and their mom was wearing Birkenstocks for the last two summers in a row. But, what is surprising—at least to us—are some of the states where "'90s clothing" is most-searched. Take a look at the complete list below, and let us know in the comments: Are you still into the '90s throwback trend? Are you surprised these states popped up on the list?

Drew Barrymore’s ’90s Fashion Trend of Choice, the Nightgown Dress, Is Back for Spring

admin

With the resurgence of so many '90s fashion trends in the past couple of years (chokers, Doc Martens, and lots 'o flannel, to name a few), it was only a matter of time until we saw the return of one of the era's most risqué looks: the nightgown dress. Long silky dresses, often trimmed in lace, were popularized by the edgiest celebs of the day, such as Drew Barrymore and Courtney Love (the latter of which practically spent the entire decade wearing little more than a silky slip). Kate Moss epitomized the languid, rolled-out-of-the-sack look in the fashion world, in flimsy nightgown-like numbers from Calvin Klein, as well as an array of actual vintage nightgowns from the '30s and '40s. But perhaps the most shocking beacon of the '90s nightgown dress was Princess Diana, whose form-hugging midnight blue Dior gown, caused quite the fashion frenzy at the Met Gala in 1996.

And now, twenty years later, designers are bringing the trend back. From the New York runways, to the Paris catwalks, we've seen an array of nightgown dresses at Calvin Klein, Balenciaga, and Celine, which showed only just this morning in Paris. While they offer more coverage than say, the naked dress phenomenon that we've seen so much of on the red carpet this year, there's something subtly sexy about this trend. Take a look at the history of the nightgown dress and how designers have refreshed it for today:

Grab This Supermodel-Approved Sweatshirt Before It Sells Out

We love seeing what supermodels wear in their off-duty hours—and we especially love when they're wearing something super awesome and super affordable. Enter Reformation, which was inspired by the supers in creating a must-have sweatshirt collection that's already been worn by the stunning Cindy Crawford.

"Cindy is the ultimate muse," Reformation founder and CEO Yael Aflalo told Glamour. "When we came up with the idea for the sweatshirt, we never imagined that she'd wear it herself, let alone on the cover of a magazine. We're excited to be rereleasing it knowing Cindy is a fan as well." Hey, Yael, her mini-me daughter Kaia approves too—the 14-year-old rocked the sweatshirt earlier this summer, looking very much like her famous mom.

When your daughter steals your clothes...

A photo posted by Cindy Crawford (@cindycrawford) on Jul 21, 2015 at 9:39am PDT


The magazine cover Aflalo's referring to is a 2013 edition of Muse, where the super posed (seemingly) pantless in a comfy looking, oversize sweatshirt emblazoned with her name. And today, it's being released for us all to shop ($118, here).

The Cindy option isn't the only supermodel tribute tee on offer either. You can rep a foursome of today's biggest catwalkers (on sale for $10 here) or hop to eBay for a Kate Moss '74 jersey. As for where the trend first came from? We're wondering if it was LPD New York's basic tops, emblazoned with designer names on the back.
