Kate Moss: Silence is golden

Kate Moss in a car
International supermodel Kate Moss is to "design" clothes for Top Shop, or to lend her name to the process. I would suspect that she is unlikely to be polishing her needle and thread or cutting out cloth herself. BBC Breakfast News had an piece on this morning where they discussed whether this would be adverse publicity for Top Shop because of her drugs issues, in the process giving Top Shop the publicity they wanted.

The reason she keeps getting the big contracts is that
  1. She's still got it - looks, credibility, media-friendly
  2. The things that she puts her name to sell
  3. She almost never does interviews

Like the Queen Mother, almost no-one has ever heard her speak, the media can superimpose their own lifestory onto her without having to do much work. It's a good cheap story: Kate thinks Pete should kick the habit, Kate wants another baby, Kate joins the women's institute. You can create any Kate Moss story you like and she's unlikely to sue you because her job requires her to keep making headlines and she's never going to do an interview that refutes any of the stories.

Just stumbled upon your blog. I think you're right about Kate. In fact, Vanity Fair's recent style issue (which featured her on the cover) included an article saying much the same thing.
