Rule 5 Saturday - Kate Moss

This week's Rule 5 spectacular was prompted by a quick note in one of Wombat-sochos Live at Five series, under the heading Famous for Being Famous, that Justin Bieber has been chosen by Calvin Klein as one of their underwear models.  Nope, I'm not going there.  Maybe the Evil Blogger Lady is evil enough to do that to you, but not me.

But it did bring another old Calvin Klein model to mind, Kate Moss, who once famously claimed:

I beg to differ, but maybe that's just me
Moss rose to fame in the early 1990s as part of the heroin chic fashion trend. She is known for her waifish figure, and role in size zero fashion. She had campaigns for designers including Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Chanel andRimmel. She received an award at the 2013 British Fashion Awards to acknowledge her contribution to fashion over 25 years.
. . .
In 2007, TIME named her one of the world's 100 most influential people. 
If by which you mean inspiring a lot of women to go on unhealthy diets.
Moss ushered in heroin chic in 1993 (which prompted speculation over her weight) with a campaign for Calvin Klein. Bill Clinton spoke out against the trend. 
But then, Slick Willy is a notorious chubby chaser.
Moss said, "It was just the time. It was a swing from more buxom girls like Cindy Crawford and people were shocked to see what they called a 'waif'. What can you say? How many times can you say 'I'm not anorexic'?"
Some people are just naturally skinny. I hate 'em.

Moss has plenty of NSFW material to choose from. For somebody who supposedly wears clothes for a living, she seems to spend a lot of her life without them. Sort of a perpetual nipple slip.  Examples here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here.

You can see what she looks like today here:

In his 172d issue, GOODSTUFF is extolling the virtues of Ivanka Trump. Pretty and rich; what's not to like? The Evil Blogger Lady just finished a post on Virginia Roberts, accuser/victim in the Epstein/Prince Andrew/Clinton/Stephen Hawking/ underage sex scandal. Stephen Hawking? I don't blame him a bit. Linked at Pirate's Cove in the weekly "Sorta Blogless Sunday Pinup." Wombat-socho got around to Rule 5 Sunday on Monday this week with "Rule 5 Monday: Midnight Snack."


  1. Thanks for the linky stuff

    Despite twenty years of drugs, alcohol and non-stop partying, Kate Moss is the girl next door? Cocaine Kate photoshopped body is on the cover of sixtieth anniversary edition of Playboy. No wonder Playboy is losing money

  2. I guess that depends on the neighborhood.
