Kate Moss Covering 60th Anniversary Playboy
Whatever you think of Kate Moss, she’s definitely not slowing down after turning 40.
Instead, she’ll be posing nude for the front cover of Playboy’s 60th anniversary edition.
Posing nude isn’t new for Moss, even recently – her latest St Tropez ad involves no clothes, and she’s done the Pirelli Calendar, which is famously low on covering, multiple times.
She first posed without a top at age 16 in her premiere editorial for British magazine The Face, in a shoot that’s now one of the most famous in fashion history.
Apparently Moss has the right, like all supermodels, to pick her photographers – and she’s gone with megastars Mert & Marcus, and will probably have executive control over which picture makes the cover.
It’s a far cry from the last controversial Playboy cover – Lindsay Lohan’s.
What do you think: good on her or time to put it away?

Lisa Ho To Shut Indefinitely: Get A Bargain Before June 30
Her company’s money troubles are notorious and now Lisa Ho has released news that her stores will close indefinitely – and that all stock must clear.
The clothing company had a rocky start – Ho famously lived in fellow designer Charlie Brown’s garage while she was attempting to get it off the ground – and now owes over $11 million.
After numerous attempts to sell it to an interested bidder, nobody stepped up, and now the stores all over the country are closing.
Naturally, we’re upset by the news but there’s some good news for bargain hunters! All Lisa Ho stock is slashed to clear before the final lights-off of June 30.
Hot items include the famously hippie-ish Lisa Ho bridal range, which has been worn by several Australian celebs on their wedding days. We predict several penny-pinching brides will go searching on the bargain rails for their dream dress.
Will you be going hunting for Lisa Ho stock?

Zac Posen To Design Wedding Gowns
That sonic vibration you just heard was the sound of thousands of brides in New York taking a sharp breath in.
Zac Posen, top couturier and famous for his 1930s gowns, has decided to dip his toes into the lucrative world of bridalwear – and we bet the results will be amazing.
Posen traditionally, like most designers, produces one or two wedding dresses to order (he designed friend Coco Rocha’s fishtail gown, pictured) and finishes his big shows with a ‘wedding dress’ – but that’s generally just a showpiece to demonstrate skill and end the show with a bang, not an actual commercial product.
Now, however, that’s going to change.
The line, Truly Zac Posen, will start in the US market, sold through famously affordable wedding store David’s Bridal – a sure sign that his upmarket designs won’t cost the (comparative) earth.
The line will only be six dresses, in traditional ivories and whites – no offbeat brides here – and will start at under $1000, but if you want something slightly less formal there will also be five ‘special occasion’ dresses for merely $500 a piece.
Will you be grabbing a diamond ring and scrolling through the Posen dress collection when it comes out next month?

What Should Wendi Deng Wear Post-Divorce?
The post-divorce/scandal wardrobe has become famous in its own right.
Who could forget Liberty Ross strutting around in furs and leathers after Rupert Saunders foolishly cheated on her with Kristen Stewart? And then, of course, she did a lingerie campaign, just to rub it in.
On the other end of the spectrum, everybody expected Katie Holmes to take advantage of her post-Tom Cruise days to emerge looking ridiculously good-looking – but she continued to look rumpled and never quite knocked us out. We’re still waiting for that killer ‘gotcha’ outfit.
So where in between should Wendi Deng fall now that her husband Rupert Murdoch has filed for divorce? She’s famously fashion-savvy, doing interviews with Vogue and wearing top designers to galas around the world.
We prescribe a famously slinky dress in we-mean-business materials. No florals or pastels here – The Row’s fearsome black leather shift is one hell of a way to say you’re undefeated.
Or there’s the space-age patterns of Victoria Beckham’s latest collections, which cinch almost ruthlessly in twill and satin and definitely take no prisoners.
Personally we’d love to see her in sass + bide’s brilliant The Bravado dress, a combination of mesh sleeves and silk chiffon that has almost skeletal embroidery all the way up to its neck. Severe with an edge? You’ve got it.
For shoes, there’s no such thing as too high or too attention-grabbing for the woman setting out to prove a point. Jimmy Choo’s teetering Anouk heels with pointed toes are perfect for stomping, or she could wear Charlotte Olympia’s suede heart-covered Love Me pumps to send a signal she’s looking for new love.
Perhaps, of course, the best revenge would be to appear on a friend’s yacht looking extremely relaxed and not at all perturbed by the tabloids in an Alice + Olivia white shift and fabulous Prada sunglasses.
Are you looking forward to seeing what Deng breaks out in the divorce court?
