Kate Moss for British Vogue – September 2010 Cover
This, my dearest friends, is Kate Moss' 30th cover for British Vogue.
It's her sixth September cover.
Previously, Kate's been on the September 2000, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2009 issues of the magazine.
I think we all agree that she's a fashion icon through and through.
I love British Vogue and I know Kate's powerful prowess sells issues but come on…
I'm gonna be honest here. I look at that cover and there's no WOW factor. No element of surprise. It doesn't even spark my curiosity. In other words, it's the same old, same old, same old, same old… multiplied by a factor of thirty.
Yes, we'll most likely buy the magazine not because we see something exciting but because it's British Vogue and you have to get it to be informed.
I just think it's sad that we have to look elsewhere to get what we want from the magazines that we love…
Sometimes I wonder what the magazine industry would be like if everyone in present-day fashion publishing just vanished into thin air (all of them, the whole lot of them from top to bottom) and our favourite glossies got a clean slate…
With that being said, who wants to bet that Kate will be on the cover again on September 2011, September 2012, September 2014 and maybe September 2016?

Lunch With Linus Gustin
Back in Paris, me and my pals Sonny and Isaac thought it was a good idea to have (very) late lunch before the spectacular Damir Doma show. A few minutes after my order arrived, male model Linus Gustin rolled up beside me. He was on his way to the show venue but he was starving. He asked us how long it took for our food to arrive and I told him it wasn’t very long so he joined our table. I thought I was gonna die — hello, how often do you have lunch with male models? I’m talking about real, working models not “models“. Anyway, I found out he’s Swedish. Y’all know how I go weak in the knees when it comes to Swedish guys. There I was, in Paris, having a beautiful meal with friends, enjoying a nice glass of rose and I’ve got some eye candy beside me. It was icing on the cake!
