Kate Moss Interior Design

Party girl and supermodel she may be, but Kate Moss could be heading in a new direction – interior design. In a collaboration with property entrepreneur John Hitchcox and French designer Philippe Starck’s company, Yoo, Kate has helped to design a five bedroom luxury house in the Cotswolds. The Barnhouse will set the buyer back a cool £2.5million and comes complete with artwork by Damien Hirst and Allen Jones, an open-plan kitchen, a swimming pool, bedrooms furnished using House of Hackney’s newly launched wallpapers and, of course, iconic pictures of Kate Moss throughout the property.

Handbags At Dawn

British fashion designer Stella McCartney has launched a copyright lawsuit, after claiming that another handbag on the market is too similar to one of her own. Steve Madden, an American accessories designer launched the BTotally bag, a black bag with gunmetal chain, which retails at around £70. However, Stella’s Falabella bag range, which was launched back in 2009 features bags with similar detailing, although her products hold a much higher retail price. Her lawyers are now said to be seeking an injunction to prevent Steve Madden from continuing its sale of the bag as well as making a claim for unspecified damages.
