Who doesn’t want to achieve Kate Moss’s tousled locks? If your own hair doesn’t work with the ‘rolled out of bed look’, use the tips and products below to create some natural texture in less than 10 minutes each morning.
1. If your hair has just been freshly washed, blow-dry it on a low heat (cool if your hairdryer has the function) and tip your head upside down – this will give your hair some extra volume. Remember to alternate the hair in different directions as you’re drying it. This helps to stimulate the follicle, which is really important.

2. Use a backcomb on the crown of your head and lightly mist with some hairspray for added volume.
CHI Turbo Backcomb Brush, $14
3. To keep the hair from getting too crispy or sticky, use a natural bristle brush from root to tip. This also helps to tease the hair out and will leave you with a nice layer of volume afterwards.
Lady Jayne Classic Pad Brush, $19.49
4. To use the styling balm for Kate’s exact look, her best friend and hairdresser James Brown has created the ultimate mist to keep your hair intact all day long. Rub it between your fingers and apply directly into the roots of your hair.

Create a fun and flirty spring wedding-look by accessorising your hair with some natural blooms. For her wedding to rocker Jamie Hince, Kate Moss had her bridesmaids and flowers girls wearing flower wreaths which perfectly complemented their outfits. Below are just a few ways to accessorise your hair for the big day!
If you want a twist to a classic bun, accessorise your hair with a few natural flowers for your wedding day. In this case, flowers are pinned into the bun on the right side to give drama to the entire look.
Go for the simplistic look and style your hair down with some textured curls, which frame the face beautifully. To add some flowers to this look, take a few strands of hair from one side, twist and secure just above the ear with a pin. Then over the top, pin the tiny flowers you wish to use. The bride in this scenario has matched her hair accessories to the grooms boutonnière, very cute!
For a chignon hairstyle, you can’t go past a few flowers which will make you look and feel like you’ve stepped out of a Jane Austen novel! Tuck a few of your favourite flowers into the top of the bun, and secure with bobby pins to conceal any tracks. Baby’s breath is perfect since it will stay in place, and can last for hours.

Forbes has released their annual list of the highest earning supermodels, can you guess who has topped the list?
1. Gisele Bundchen – $47 million
Earning more than five times the figure of other supermodels on the list, it is not surprise that Gisele has topped the list for eight years in a row! Over the past year Gisele has fronted campaigns for H&M, Chanel, Carolina Herrera, Pantene, and Oral-B, and also has her own footwear and lingerie lines.
2. Doutzen Kroes – $8 million
The Victoria’s Secret Angel is also the face of L’Oreal cosmetics, and has a line of cashmere sweaters. On top of earning $8 million last year, she also gave birth to her second child.

4. Kate Moss – $7 million
The veteran supermodel and pioneer of the waif-thin body type, 40-year-old Moss continues to front Rimmel London cosmetics and collaborate with Topshop. While her yearly earnings may total $7 million, we all know Kate’s total worth is more likely quadruple this figure.
5. Kate Upton – $7 million
At just 22, curvy Kate has featured on a record number of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit covers, and more recently signed to Bobbi Brown cosmetics. You may have also caught her alongside Cameron Diaz in her film debut, The Other Woman. This is Upton’s first year (first of many, we predict) on the list.
6. Miranda Kerr – $7 million
Since terminating her Victoria’s Secret contract and splitting from her husband Orlando Bloom, Kerr continues to bring in the bucks as the face of several brands including, H&M, Reebok, and Mango. Kerr also has her own beauty line, Kora Organics.

Wen was the first Chinese woman to walk the Victoria’s Secret runway, but also makes a lucrative sum from Estee Lauder, H&M, Calvin Klein, Coach and La Perla.
8. Alessandra Ambrosio – $5 million
Victoria’s Secret and H&M continue to make millionaire’s out of their models, with Ambrosio next on the list. At the age of 33, she also has two children and her own clothing line.
9. Hilary Rhoda – $5 million
Rhoda’s fortune is mostly due to a lucrative eight-year deal with Estee Lauder, but this American has also been involved with Toteme, Sarar, Helmut Lang, and… Victoria’s Secret.
10. Natalia Vodianova – $4 million
You may recognise this Russian beauty as the face of Calvin Klein Euphoria perfume, a role she has held since 2006. She has four children and will also appear in the infamous Pirelli Calendar in 2015, alongside fellow rich list member, Adriana Lima.
Twenty-one years after Kate Moss’s Calvin Klein campaign debut in 1993 the young beauty Lottie Moss is following in the footsteps of the supermodel and (half) sister in a new collaboration. The debut called ‘The Re-Issue Project’ involves luxury online retailer mytheresa.com and the denim label CK Jeans from Calvin Klein.
The 16-year-old has shot the capsule collection featuring pieces from the 90’s creatively shot by photographer Michael Avedon. These nine re-issued items will be sold solely by the e-retailer from July 15.
The key pieces will comprise of versions of products worn those twenty-one years ago by Kate Moss such as boyfriend tapered, and classic jeans, Calvin Klein’s well-known and popular ‘cK’ t-shirts and jumpers, as well as 80’s style high-waisted skinny jeans originally made trendy by Brooke Shields.
Kevin Carrigan, global creative director of the Calvin Klein underwear, jeans and platinum label, spoke to WWD about the campaign, explaining the purpose behind the project as to keep the brand young and fresh for their consumers. He said:
“Lottie represents the relevant generation of today, but with a historical connection to the house of Klein. She’s cool and wears vintage clothing in her own way.
“This Calvin Klein Jeans capsule is all about a nostalgia for the Nineties and that whole look feeling very right again. It now feels like the perfect time to reissue the brand’s iconic hits to a new generation.”
The project is said to be a success, the trend around revival, op-shopping, and vintage clothing is a hit among young adult women. We are seeing a comeback with high waisted, and boyfriend jeans, the casual and laid back look is not only comfortable but looks great. Bloggers around the world such as Elle Ferguson and Amanda Shadforth are always sporting the trend.
Simplicity really is perfection.

We’re still obsessed with Kate Moss’ celebrity style. Anytime we get into a fashion rut, we just browse through the Kate Moss fashion archives to find a look that’s fresh, a new way of wearing a wardrobe staple, or accessorising a boring outfit. After 26 years’ modelling, she remains a fashion icon with no indication of slowing down. Let’s take a walk down memory lane and see how you can recreate La Moss’ celebrity style for less.
The leopard print coat
One of Moss’ most iconic looks, her leopard print coat has been a favourite over the years – she even wore it on her recent 40th birthday celebrations. Whether you pair it with jeans and a fitted jumper, or over a little black dress, Moss has made this a wardrobe staple.
Get the look for less: Topshop Faux Fur Animal Print Coat, $168.
The kimono jacket
We love the addition of a floral kimono jacket to a pair of dark denim skinny jeans and basic singlet top. Topped off with layered necklaces and olive ankle boots makes the look completely unique.
Get the look for less: Dark Base Floral Tassel Kimono, $24.99.
The tailored blazer
Moss adds sexiness and elegance to an all-black outfit. The skin-tight leather pants and tailored blazer with satin lapels, with sheer chemise underneath, is a vampish take on the classic suit. It would be easy to over-accesorise, but Moss keeps it simple and still a statement with her hair pulled back, black satin clutch and pointed stilettos.
The wide leg jeans
She might have been responsible for ushering in the skinny jean trend, but in typical Moss fashion, she’ll often broke from the pack choosing this more relaxed bohemian chic look. Here she pairs a simple boat neck t-shirt with wide leg jeans, thick belt, open-toe sands and a simple purse. Let your hair down and enjoy the sunshine with this carefree look. Get the look for less: LTB Roxy Jean, $74.95 and Cotton On Desire Fleck T-Shirt, $14.95.
The chiffon dress
Moss is never afraid to take fashion risks, and always pulls it off. On paper, it might sound like an emerald green chiffon dress would not pair well with a fitted leather jacket, but on Moss, it looks incredible. Next time you wear a feminine evening dress, take inspiration from Moss and pair it with a sleek biker jacket and bold accessories.

Which is your favourite Kate Moss style look?
Kate Moss graces the cover of the August issue of US Allure magazine looking rosy and radiant. Here’s how celebrity makeup artist Tom Pecheux created Kate’s English rose makeup look in just a few easy steps.
Tom started by lining the upper lash line with Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Black, and using ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Brown on the bottom lash line. He then dusted the shimmery beige shadow from Glam’Eyes Quad Eye Shadow in Smokey Bru over the lid, and finished with black mascara.
For those gorgeous rosy cheeks, Tom blended matte bronzer onto Kate’s cheeks, then applied Rimmel Match Perfection Blush in Light, a gorgeous peach hue that brightens up all skin tones.
To finish the look, Tom used Rimmel Lasting Finish 1000 Kisses Lip Pencil in Rose Quartz on the lips topped with a clear lip balm.

Johnny won’t ruin Vanessa’s good name
Flat note Johnny DeppJohnny Depp says he would never ask his Vanessa Paradis to marry him as it would ruin her ‘perfect name’. He said he often thought about proposing to the mother of his two children, but the name issue had held him back. “It’s so perfect and so beautiful,” Johnny said. “It would be a drag to stick her with Paradis-Depp. It’s like a flat note.” But he said he would not hesitate if she was to propose to him: “She’s the woman of my life. I would do it in a second.” Oh what a guy – so talented and thoughtful too! And so old fashioned. Not every bride chooses to ditch her surname, Johnny.
She’ll always be J-LoLopez regrets calling herself J-Lo
Jennifer Lopez has ‘fessed up that she regrets giving herself the name J-Lo. She made the admission during an interview for the US show Inside the Actor’s Studio. The New York Post reports that Lopez was not shy about stating her favourite swear words (here’s a hint, it rhymes with bucking door) even though her mum was sitting in the front row. She referred to Guadalupe Lopez as “my mom, the millionaire” – a reference to her million dollar jackpot win on the dreaded poker machines at an Atlantic City casino earlier this month. When host James Lipton asked J-Lo: “If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive?” She replied: “‘Nice going, you did your best,” and “There are no paparazzi here.” Nice to see that is all she is worried about in heaven!
Glowing with love, Kate MossKate Moss’ secret love
Rumour has it Kate Moss has fallen in love with hunky British actor Daniel Craig. Kate, 30, and the Tomb Raider star have been dating for a month after meeting through mutual friends. Kate is said by pals to be “besotted” with Daniel, 35, who starred opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in last year’s movie Sylvia. And the multi-millionaire cover girl has told friends the romance is serious. “It was love at first sight for Kate,” said a pal last week. “Daniel is bright, charming and leads a very low-key life – just what Kate’s looking for at the moment.” The friend said: “It is serious, and they both know it. Kate doesn’t want anything to rock the boat. She is blown away by him.” The friend added: “Both he and Kate want to keep things low-key. “But the sexual chemistry between them is so potent that you’d be blind not to see it. Some things you just can’t keep quiet.” The pair met after Daniel, who has an 11-year old daughter from a brief marriage in his 20s, starred with Kate’s pal Rhys Ifans, 37, in the new film Enduring Love. The news is not good for Kate’s estranged partner Jefferson Hack, father of her toddler daughter Lila Grace. He still had hopes of reviving their four-year relationship. Magazine boss Hack, 31, moved out of their London home two weeks ago, but the couple reportedly remain “good mates”.
Daryl HannahPolice quiz Daryl Hannah over Kill Bill poses
Actress Daryl Hannah has been questioned by police after she struck kung fu poses at the LA premiere of Kill Bill: Vol 2. The actress, who reportedly gets nervous when meeting the press at glitzy events, decided to hide behind her assassin character Elle Driver. She told Teen Hollywood: “I usually just race into theatres at premieres. But this time I thought I would walk in like Elle with her cocky attitude and stuff. So I went through the press line and I was standing on my car and doing kung fu and giving them the finger or whatever. Then when I came out of the theatre, there were five policemen waiting for me, wanting me to take a breathalyser test.” Hannah said they talked to her for a minute or so before letting her go: “They said: ‘Well, you seem okay.’ They couldn’t seem to understand that I was just acting. It was weird.” Only in Hollywood!
P. Diddy says NO SEX please!
In announcement that’s bound to devastate women around the globe, R & B bad boy P.Diddy has told American newspaper USA Today that he’s abstaining from sex for two whole weeks while he goes into final preparations for the New York City marathon on November 2. “Two weeks is a long time for me, because I’m a very healthy Scorpio. My hormones are raging. I’m a young man, very passionate, very romantic.” The former beau of J.Lo, is making good use of his trademarked sports attire, entering the marathon in hopes to raise over $1 million US for the health and education of underprivileged kids in New York.
Long live the King!
Like to earn more than $70 million dollars from the grave? It’s easy if you are the king of rock and roll! Elvis Presley topped the “deceased top earners” list on Forbes.com for the third year in a row. Snoopy creator Charles Schulz came in a ghostly second with $50 million, while the original Lord of the Rings, J.R. Tolkien, came in third with over $40 million.

A rolling Kate gathers no moss
Is Kate Moss ever going to marry Jefferson Hack? Apparently, after the wedding of pal Stella McCartney in September this year, the pair sent out hand written invitations to their own nuptials, due to take place in November this year. “Plans have been laid down for quite a while but obviously everything has to be kept very secret,” a friend told the Evening Standard. “Kate and Jeff learned quite a lot from Stella McCartney’s wedding.” But it appears that the perennial London party-girl may have called off the wedding. The pair had daughter, Lila Grace, over a year ago and were due to walk down the aisle in the UK next month. But with the wedding date yet to be rescheduled, it looks like Jefferson will have to be a little more patient if he wants to tie the willowy Moss down for good.
Holly’s new neighbours – ladies of the night
Hot on the heels of her costly courtroom battle comes another scandal for singer Holly Valance. The 20-year-old has learned the hard way, that her expensive apartment in west London directly above first floor premises being used for prostitution. Valance told friends that she is fed up with late night callers making noise outside her window. She told The Sun “The house always smells of laundry powder because they wash the sheets downstairs. I haven’t been there long but I’ve already called the police a few times when certain people on the street bash each other on the doorstep.” Valance said she does not feel safe at home alone, but because of her busy schedule in Europe she is not able to live with her boyfriend Peter Ververis in Australia. “It’s just the way it has to be right now and we accept that – until I make enough money to fly him on a private jet and tie him down with a ball and chain.” Indeed.
The stars turnout for McCartney wedding
Stella McCartney‘s wedding guest list read like a who?s who of global celebrities, everyone from gal pals Madonna, Kate Moss,Gwyneth Paltrow and the man of style himself, Tom Ford – Stella?s boss from Gucci ? were all in attendance. James Bond aka Pierce Brosnan even made an appearance to witness the marriage. Stella and publisher, Alasdhair Willis were wed in a private ceremony at Mount Stuart House on an island off the west coast of Scotland. Other groovy guests included singers Chrissie Hynde and Sharleen Spiteri, as well as Gwynnie?s boyfriend (not fianc?e!) Chris Martin, of Coldplay and actress Liv Tyler.
Around 150 guests attended the lavish party in the Victorian Gothic house owned by the former racing driver Johnny Dumfries, the Marquis of Bute, last weekend. Hynde, formerly the lead singer of the Pretenders, said that the bride looked “beautiful” in a fawn wedding dress said to have been inspired by the outfit worn by her late mother Linda McCartney when she married Sir Paul McCartney. It is rumoured that Sir Paul paid almost $6 million Aussie dollars to keep those pesky papparazi away from the wedding in attempt to keep the marriage of his fashion- designer daughter Stella a private affair.
Celebrity Cash Cows
According to the 2004 Guinness Book of World Records, Cameron Diaz topped the list as the biggest earning female celebrity for the year 2001/2002 with a massive AUS$80 million pay cheque for the year! Diaz wrecked Julia Roberts quest to be Queen of Hollywood by out-earning her for the first time and catapulting Diaz to the top of Hollywood’s A-list actresses. The pair were closely followed by Nicole Kidman and Jennifer Lopez in the rich chicks stakes. Funny man Adam Sandler earned almost $90 million Aussie buckaroos, in taking out the male stakes for biggest, fattest pay cheque in one year just beating Demi Moore?s ex-old man Bruce Willis by a whisker. Who wants to be a millionaire? Or is that mullionaire, as Eddie Maguire would say?
We want you as a new recruit…
?says the CIA to Alias star Jennifer Garner. According to officials, the spunky star said she has been asked to contribute to an official CIA video promoting the government agency to be shown to university graduate students and prospective agents. “We feel that Miss Garner, both in character as agent Sydney Bristow and as herself, embodies the intelligence, enthusiasm and dedication that we’re looking for,” Chase Brandon, from the CIA told reporters. “Her participation would add a human touch to the message we’re trying to convey.”
Frosty end to Jude Law’s marriage
Jude Law, the Oscar-nominated English spunk is finally and officially on the singles scene again. After months of speculation his split with wife Sadie Frost is finally official, with the couple divorcing after nearly five years, three children and one booming film career. In a statement, the designer, wife and mother Sadie Frost said she has “very reluctantly [come] to the decision that my marriage to Jude is over. We have agreed that divorce is the only way forward, but we have equally agreed that we will do everything in our power to make certain that this is as painless a process as possible for the benefit of the children,” she said. The high profile Brits have three children together; daughter Iris, 2, and sons Rafferty, 7, and Rudy, 11 months. Frost also has a son, Finley, from a previous marriage to Gary Kemp of the 1980s pop group Spandau Ballet. It?s a sad end to a tumultuous 12 months for the couple who met in 1994 and married in 1997.
Sadie?s young beau
Sadie Frost has great mates, in her time of need fashion guru and best buddy Kate Moss has really come through for her this time. According to reports out of the UK Sadie Frost the 37-year-old mother of four has hooked up with 22-year-old flamenco guitarist Jackson Scott, a mere 48 hours after announcing her divorce. Apparently Sadie has been finding comfort in the arms of the young musican after she was introduced to him in Spain by Kate Moss. Funnily enough the only other woman to comment on this latest union is Scott’s mother, who was quoted in the UK Sunday Mirror, saying “I bet like most 22-year-olds dating a woman in her thirties, he’s having the time of his life. “So what if Sadie is older than him? If it makes them both happy then good for them.” Well if his mother says it?s ok it must be ok!
Tony Blair’s karaoke wife
The wife of British Prime Minister Tony Blair has spawned an unlikely club hit. Cherie Blair‘s impromptu karaoke rendition of The Beatles’ When I’m 64 has been remixed into a dance track and is a hit in Ibiza and Cyrus nightclubs, according to the BBC. Apparently Prime Minister Blair sang to Chinese students in Bejing last month after he was asked to sing by the students. Music industry experts are predicting this could be a huge hit for Cherie Blair. Just what the PM?s wife needs to add to her resume – dance party icon! No doubt the British public will love the PM?s prim and proper wife being a major hit on the European dance scene. You bet we can?t wait for that one to reach down under!
Kylie still Ollie’s girl?
Rumours doing the rounds currently regarding Kyles (aka Kylie Minogue) and Olly (Oliver Martinez) have them either breaking up or him on bended knee about to propose to the 35-year-old Australian songbird. Fueling the break-up rumours were comments Martinez made on US TV. In a recent interview he described our Kyles as “cute, nice and interesting”. Isn?t that like saying ?ugly but bearable?? Seriously, is that the best the famous French lover could come up with? Surely could have done better than that! Also notably absent from the interview was any mention of the dramas of recent weeks involving American actress Angelina Jolie. Jolie and Martinez have been steamin? it up in Canada while they have been filming Taking Lives to the point where Kyles had to dash to Canada to ?rescue? her relationship and make sure the Tomb Raider chick wasn?t racing off with her man! Now that doesn?t sound like a man about to propose does it?
