Kate Moss took a walk in Saint-Tropez last night with her husband, Jamie Hince, and her daughter Lila's dad, Jefferson Hack. The trio are all together in France enjoying an end-of-Summer vacation. Kate's been in a bikini on and off over the last few months, whether she's walking along the beach near Club 55 or hanging out on a yacht laughing with her friends. Getting rest and relaxation while she can may be a good idea for Kate. She's a frequent fixture in the front row at London Fashion Week, and the next round of shows kick off in her hometown Sept. 14.
Kate Moss grabbed lunch today in Saint-Tropez with her daughter, Lila. The little one's dad, Jefferson Hack, was along for the meal, too. Later, Kate grabbed a ride out to her yacht on a boat also carrying her husband, Jamie Hince, and their pals Philip and Tina Green. Topshop head honcho Philip is a longtime pal of Katie and Jamie's. In fact, he offered up his yacht for Kate and Jamie to use after their July 2011 wedding. Kate's one of the many celebrities winding down the season with a Summer vacation. She's been lucky to escape to the South of France on multiple occasions, and has been a frequent sighting at the bars and restaurants of Saint-Tropez. It seems Kate's got some free time to spend on getaways. Kate's no longer working with David Yurman, since the jewelry brand tapped Gisele Bundchen to be the face of their new ads.
In November, Rizzoli will publish a coffee-table book chronicling Kate Moss's 20-year modeling career. Kate: The Kate Moss Book, was edited by Fabien Baron, with contributions from Jefferson Hack — the father of Moss's daughter Lila — and legendary casting director Jess Hallett. Hack, who is also the editor-in-chief of Dazed and Confused and AnOther magazines, helped Moss curate photos taken by Hedi Slimane, Juergen Teller, Terry Richardson, and Mario Testino, among others, for the tome. Also included are some of Moss's first modeling shots taken by Corinne Day, as well as her iconic campaigns for Calvin Klein in the '90s.
The book, which will cost $85, features eight covers shot by different photographers.
>> Anouck Lepere and Jefferson Hack, who began dating in 2005 and became engaged over chocolate pudding in Paris a year later, are no longer a couple. The pair has not appeared publicly together in quite some time — they were last photographed in December of last year. Hack, 40, confirms that he is single to ES magazine, and was reportedly spotted leaving an after-party at London's W Hotel earlier this month with Scarlett Johansson. Lepere, 32, was meanwhile spotted hanging out with Jim Carrey earlier this year. We take a look back at the couple that was.
>> “It’s a pretty big night, alright,” said Dazed & Confused founder Jefferson Hack, in the midst of celebrating the magazine's 20 years last night with a commemorative exhibit at London's Somerset House. He was joined by Sarah Burton, Christopher Kane, and Gareth Pugh; Dazed co-founders Katie Grand and Rankin; and ex-girlfriend Kate Moss, who at the exhibit's entrance, stated, “If only I could remember half the photos I’ve done with Dazed, I might be able to tell you my favorite," adding: "If I could get through the crowds into the exhibition I might be able to jog my memory.”
Hack, for his part, remembers one set: he recently talked about how he first met Moss — on a 1999 Dazed shoot, for which she was naked. "That was the shoot where I first met Kate. I was taken aback by how chatty and uninhibited she was — that unguarded thing was really captivating." During the accompanying interview with Moss, Hack said he added in the question: "There's been a lot of different men mentioned in your life recently, but no one permanent relationship. Is there no one out there good enough for you?" They ended up dating for four years and producing a daughter, before splitting in 2004. "I saw Lila last night," says Hack. "I see her lots. I have a lovely family and Kate's a great mum."
Kate Moss said goodbye to her wedding guests and family Sunday following her epic three-day celebration! She was decked out in a going-away outfit designed by her pal and guest Stella McCartney. Kate Moss's wedding dress was John Galliano, but the bride sported a variety of other chic outfits since walking down the aisle. Most of the festivities went down in tents on the grounds of her Cotswolds home, but her new husband, Jamie Hince, joined other pals like Jude Law, Sadie Frost, Meg Matthews, Jefferson Hack, and Dave Gardner for drinks Saturday at the Swan Pub in Southrop. Sadie and Jude also had their three kids Iris, Rafferty, and Rudy there. The festivities apparently went on until 5 a.m. on Saturday morning, with the couple offering guests a menu of British favorites as well as vegetarian fare for those with diets like Jamie's. Kate and Jamie are currently off on their honeymoon reported to be a Mediterranean vacation on her Topshop boss Philip Green's yacht. In addition to her new married title, Kate Moss is also on the new cover of British Vogue that features the subtitle "Meet Mrs. Hince."
>> Every two years, the fashion flock meets the art world in Venice for a series of parties and power buys. This year, Hogan, Prada, and Missoni have been among the Venice Biennale event hosts, bringing out guests like Anna Wintour (who was spotted yesterday riding around the city's Grand Canal), Dasha Zhukova, and Naomi Campbell. While some have already come and gone — Anna Wintour, Francois-Henri Pinault, and Salma Hayek Pinault were already spotted attending the French Open in Paris today — we've the fleeting moments of the last couple of days' festivities captured in our slideshow at left.
>> Gareth Pugh has come a long way from living in a squat house in 2005. The road hasn't been an easy one, however, he tells Vice in its new Style Issue: "We didn’t sell anything from the poodle or gimp shows — nothing until the fourth or fifth show. My first show was such a last-minute thing. I was only really thinking about the show and not selling stuff afterward. But once you start showing, you’re on the treadmill and have to carry on." Even a couple of years ago, he says, "There was a point, right before a show, when I barely had enough money to get my team over to Paris."
But now, Pugh is definitely starting to consider the financial aspect of his brand (and perhaps explains why he leans toward short films in place of runway shows): "At the moment I feel very much between a rock and a hard place. People expect an amazing show, but in order to do that in Paris you have to sell a lot of clothes, which maybe means people have to be able to imagine the clothes on hangers."
More from Pugh in Vice:
On why he opened his first store in Hong Kong: "Rick Owens’s wife, Michelle Lamy [Pugh's backer], thinks moneyed Chinese women like to look very chic, like avant-garde punks. I just make more sense over there. In America I’m seen as a little bit niche and weird."
On his relationship with Rick Owens: "I’m closer to his wife, Michelle. He always describes himself as the distant, stern father figure and she is like the overgenerous mother. She’s very critical about what I do, which I like. It’s good to have someone who doesn’t always give you unadulterated praise."
On his strangest fashion industry experiences: "Driving to the Palace of Versailles with Jeremy Scott, Suzy Menkes, Jefferson Hack, and Anouck Lepere was pretty funny. Everyone wanted to see this Jeff Koons exhibition — Anouck tried to climb the fence, Jefferson got into a fight with a security guard, and Suzy Menkes was taking pictures. That was weird. Oh, and the time I’d booked my housemates a holiday in Gran Canaria but got flown to New York to shoot with Mario Testino. I ended up at the Met Ball afterward and found myself having a fag with Christian Slater in the toilets while David Beckham took a piss at the urinal. The toilets there are a real superstar clusterf*ck. I just couldn’t work out why I was there."
On the clothes he wears: "I never buy clothes, so I don’t really have a choice when it comes to what I wear. I am very lucky to be able to pull a lot of Rick Owens and steal some of my stuff from the factory. (I have to steal my own samples [because] I don’t get a personal order quota. It’s a license.) But other than that I buy H&M hoodies and Topshop jeans."
On why he doesn't use much color: "The designs are more about the whole thing rather than the details, and if I were to do the big shapes I do, color would maybe be too much. Pink or red would push it all over the edge."
Kate Moss, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Naomi Campbell broke from the London Fashion Week proceedings to attend a memorial service for their friend, Alexander McQueen, today at St. Paul's Cathedral. They were among the stars who had iconic moments wearing designs by Alexander, who committed suicide last February. Sarah Jessica is in England now after wrapping up her style duties in NYC and getting her son, James Wilkie, settled into school again. She didn't speak during the ceremony, which was led by Anna Wintour, but was moved to tears by a tribute offered by jewelry designer Shaun Leane. SJP did say on the way out, "It was beautiful and so memorable. I wouldn’t have missed it for the world." Kate, meanwhile, joined pals like Daphne Guinness and Stella McCartney and caught up once again with her ex, Jefferson Hack.
