Kate Moss, Playboy Bunny, once said in an interview, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” and it caused quite the controversy. Canadian clothing retailer Hudson’s Bay decided to, stupidly, put it on a T-shirt. After getting backlash via social media, they decided to pull the shirt from their retailers. Whoops.
Their statement, from Vogue:
We truly value our relationship with our customers and take their concerns seriously and we recognise that many took offence to the item. In this particular instance, while we respect the designer’s art, due to the overwhelming response and the sensitivity of the matter, we made the decision to promptly remove the T-shirts from our stores and from thebay.com.
And here’s the shirt in question:
Here’s what the designer of the tee, Christopher Lee Sauve (seriously?) had to say:
Fashion is created to be either celebrated, adored, or hated and deplored, quite like the industry itself. The particular T-shirt in question showcases an infamous quote by supermodel Kate Moss as a nutrition label – most, if not all, of my designs showcase some type of statement pointing out the absurdity of fashion, and this one item is no exception. I fully understand and comprehend the severity of an eating disorder and I do not condone celebrating such pain. My sincerest apologies to anyone that I have offended with my designs. I believe wholeheartedly in my work, however, and I can’t apologise for that.
Would you wear the shirt? What do you guys think of the whole controversy? Just a t-shirt, NBD, or something more?

Lindsay Lohan clearly decided to follow me to the UK, because she’s been terrorizing London for the past several months and plans to move over here full time soon (thankfully, I am not in London). While she’s apparently working on booking jobs over here so she can be “back on set” (her catchphrase from her reality series), she’s also spent a LOT of time back to her partying ways and apparently she got a little too wasted recently and got herself into a fight with none other than Kate Moss at the Chiltern Firehouse.
From The Sun (via Radar Online):
“The argument went on for a while, and Kate seemed extremely annoyed with Lindsay,” an onlooker told the paper of the incident, which allegedly occurred earlier this month. “People around them noticed it was going on.”
Apparently, the 27-year-old contacted Moss’ husband, Kills rocker Jamie Hince, 45, upon arriving in the UK several weeks ago.
Moss “was ranting about it to fellow diners at the restaurant,” adds the eyewitness.
First of all, Lindsay needs to recognize that Kate Moss is NOT the one. She may be small, but she will cut you (and without ever using a knife). Second of all, what’s with Lindsay and her desperation for married men lately?
Seriously, though – Lindsay needs to back off Kate Moss or she will rue the day.

Kate Moss decided to help Hugh Hefner get it up for the 60th anniversary of Playboy, so she donned a bunny suit and did her best sexy poses for the magazine’s special issue. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott took the pictures, which are… I don’t know, kinda boring? I think they’re supposed to highlight the classy and refined side of Playboy, so maybe that’s the point.
In any case, we’ve already had a sneak peak of the shoot, but now we’ve got all the pictures. Now that you’ve got a more complete picture, what do you think? Still boring? Surprisingly refined?

Kate Moss is going to celebrate turning 40 by being on the cover of Playboy magazine! And look how very elegant they are with her (above). Nothing like Lindsay “Chair Straddle Or Die” Lohan’s photo shoot, poor girl. The Moss issue also happens to be Playboy‘s 60th anniversary issue. So why go with Kate Moss? Here’s what Hugh Hefner told The Daily Mail, via Daily News:
She’s a worldwide celebrity and iconic and crosses the boundaries from sexual imagery to upscale modeling. It’s a natural for us.
Of course, because Hef and Playboy are all about upscale modeling.
Anyone else want to see the un-photoshopped pix of this shoot as badly as I do?
