K Day for Topshop

Kate who? So far it's business as usual for Topshop. Well, it is for these fellas, at least. I passed by Topshop at lunchtime today and checked out what was happening - and it wasn't quite the same as the Oxford Street Primark frenzy. Or even the 'I'm not a plastic bag' frenzy. Quite surprising for what is the biggest British fashion event of 2007.

Could this mean that Miss Moss is no more à la mode? Her collection is due to hit Manhattan's Barney's, an upmarket department-store chain, next week. And it has already attracted some criticism in America: New York magazine accused Kate of simply "copying all the crap already hanging in her closet." This is, as it happens, an excellent business plan. You don't need to be Phillip Green to see the cult of this particular celebrity. Just think of all the muffin-tops squeezed into skinny jeans and you know Topshop tills will be ringing.

And rumour has it that Kate is appearing, mannequin-like, in the window of Topshop tonight - just ahead of doors opening and the stampede of Mossionistas being let in to buy her designs. Although as Kate's appearance is due to take place after an hour-long, in-store cocktail party for her and her coked up mates, I do have a rather lovely image of her staggering onto the stage in her newly designed Little Black Dress, fag in one hand, glass of champers in the other. Beautiful but damned. Just like I like her.

Dating a heroin addict like Doherty just reminds one of the glory days gone by when she took champagne baths with Depp.

I agree anonymous.

The problem for Moss is that your cool quota diminishes in direct proportion to the amount of effort you are seen to be putting into maintaining it. Her "Get out of Jail" card for years was the fact that Moss once stepped out with Johnny Depp, the most effortlessly cool man on the planet.

I too once fell in love with a boy who took hard drugs and said he was going to be the world's greatest artist - what girl hasn't? - but I was 17. Kate Moss is 33, for Christ's sake.

£3 is quite a lot of money. Am sure Topshop did the figures but still.

I think it is absolutely RIDICULOUS that she not only gets to smoke in the shop but putting restrictions on buying the clothes because someone might sell it on ebay - if you buy it you have the right to sell it.
Not that you would as it is not an original!
As for girls buying into what she represents - she represents and coke head boyfriend and many friends that are like that to.

Sorry to be so urrrgghhh! but OMG!

IF there is one celebrity who never gets it wrong, it has to be Kate Moss.

When it comes to polish, the supermodel has it in spades, whether she’s dressed down or up to the nines.

I am with you all the way CS!

Well spotted CS - total non event. Kate Moss should have been all over a year ago. Someone make the decision to cut off her life support - now.

pdf splitterRental ManagmentAbyssinia, Henry", Rogers unexpectedly left the series during the break between Seasons Three and Four, and so his character's departure takes place off-screen in the following episode, "Welcome to Korea". These combined departures and their subsequent replacements also signaled the beginning of a major shift in focus of the M*A*S*H series as a whole.
