Kate Moss Gets “Fabulous”
Kate Moss is set to star in a one-off special of Absolutely Fabulous, in aid of Sport Relief on March 23. The supermodel joins close friend Stella McCartney and Emma Bunton, as well as sportsmen Colin Jackson and Linford Christie, who will all make guest appearances.
The British beauty teamed up with McCartney last month, as she modeled the designer’s latest collection at her London Fashion Week show. She also supported her friend at the turning-on of her Christmas lights in December 2011, at which Ab Fab character Eddie was the guest of honor.
Nasty Gal Makes Changes
E-tailer Nasty Gal is readying for an overhaul. The online retailer aimed at “fashion-forward girls” has unveiled a Web site redesign after completing a new round of investing from Index Ventures, whose portfolio of retailers has included Net-a-Porter, Asos and Etsy.
Nasty Gal chief executive and founder Sophia Amoruso said she wanted to find the right fit for her customer’s “intriguing and audacious sense of style.” As part of a major redesign, the company plans to roll out changes in the next month, starting with a new, “effortlessly cool” logo. In mid-April the retailer will launch branded editorial and a redesigned homepage featuring look book shoots, collaborations, contests and editorialized trend stories. The blog section of the new site will host “Sophia’s Corner,” where Amoruso will comment on current events and offer style notes.
Sore Sport Models Fight
Rival models already have the knives out for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover beauty Kate Upton. There was a frosty atmosphere during a launch event last month in front of Caesars Palace in Vegas for this year’s issue.
Sources said when the 18 SI models, including Izabel Goulart, Irina Shayk, Chrissy Teigen, Anne V., Genevieve Morton and Julie Henderson lined up for a photo, Upton, standing on one side, was asked to move to the middle of the group by a producer. Upton, at first, was hesitant but moved after further prompting. But some of the ladies at the shoot weren’t pleased at making space — an onlooker said one model rolled her eyes while another mumbled under her breath. When Upton asked what she said, the model snapped, “Don’t worry about me, honey, cause I’m not worrying about you!” A rep for Upton didn’t get back to us. An SI rep said, “If there were words exchanged, it’s news to me. Kate was elegant and a complete force of spirit throughout the launch.”
