Mrs Jamie Hince – aka supermodel Kate Moss – nabbed next month’s cover of Vogue UK in a Miu Miu dress. The cover and accompanying shoot were lensed by Mario Testino. This is probably the best Kate cover I’ve seen in years. Love does a model good.
That said, I can’t be too wrong to expect there is a severely-bobbed, miffed Anna Wintour somewhere. Londoners got the Moss-Hince marriage cover a month before Vogue US was set to, didn’t we? Conde Nast competiton heats up?
“Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don’t seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong.”

I am going to try to make this a (brief as can be) follow up to Don’t Want Kids. In Chelsea Handler‘s promotional interview with Piers Morgan, he decides to embody the role of ‘Alpha Society Male’ while drilling the successful comedienne about children and marriage.
Listen, hombre, the “modern dilemma of successful women” is not that we’ve talked ourselves out ‘handling motherhood’ but the unreasonable, insistent drilling we receive when stating motherhood isn’t our game. Possessing ‘motherly qualities‘ (which everyone should strive for regardless of their stance on procreation) is not the same thing as wanting to be a parent. I would be interested to see if you throw out the same implications on parenting that you have expressed here the next time you ‘interview’ a male with no interest in babymaking.
It’s been discussed since Day Uno; who will be the designer of Kate Middleton‘s wedding dress? With a Prince-cum-King like William at hand, the stakes are high. Bookmaker Paddy Power stopped accepting bets (yes, wedding bets) on this most important of matters on November 26 – five months before the wedding – after designer Bruce Oldfield emerged as the favorite.
They commented by saying “- we were receiving one-way traffic for Bruce Oldfield, and there is no point in taking bets when all the interest is in one person. He started as 4/1 joint favourite, but since then his odds have been slashed to 1/3. That would mean there is a 75 per cent chance of him being the wedding dress designer. Sometimes this kind of betting comes from people taking an educated guess, but sometimes it is the result of a leak. We were taking bets of £500 or more so it could be a leak. The wedding is in April, so someone knows what dress she is wearing. I suppose we will just have to wait to see on the 29th.”
My twenty-five percent vote is for Phillipa Lepley – I should have gotten in the pool while I had the chance!
