Alas, all good things must come to an end, even financially lucrative ones. And so it was that Kate Moss, last night, celebrated her last Topshop collection, the coveted and endlessly marketable line that proved she’s more than just a pretty waif. At last night’s fete, Sir Philip Green looked as jolly as usual, although we suspect he was keeping a brave upper lip, secretly lamenting the loss of the goldmine that consistently sold out for fourteen seasons. As for Moss, her latest incarnation resembled a disco-inflected Brigitte Bardot, complete with tousled blond locks and sparkling jumpsuit. The buzz, however, was all about her new shag, even though she remained nonchalant. As she told The Telegraph’s Hilary Alexander, “I got bored one night and cut it with kitchen scissors.”
The collection itself revisited one of Moss’s favorite eras: Biba bombshell glamour. There was enough fringe, sparkles, florals, and embroidery to satisfy even the most demanding of free spirits. And these pieces worked the Moss magic, eerily hitting every trend while appearing to be unconcerned with fashion. Dating all those rock stars has clearly paid off.
