Last week, Kate celebrated the launch of her new Kate Moss at Topshop collection for the party season ahead. A star studded party ensued, and star studded it certainly was - Naomi Campbell, Lily Allen, Sophie Dahl, Elle Macpherson, Kelly Osbourne to name a few and even a performance from Grace Jones. I have not seen Kate looking as fabulous as she did for that party in a long while, utterly glamorous and radiant. Black satin catsuit from the new collection, vintage, beaded, 20's flapper - girl cape, dark, glittery eye makeup and most importantly the smile that was captured on all those magazine covers.
That same week saw Kate in another stunning outfit. Continuing the flapper theme in a beaded, tasseled dress at the Swarovski Fashion Rocks Gala in London, Kate really shows the rest of the glitterati how it's done on the red carpet.
Kate's first Topshop collection proved a bit of a disappointment. It was certainly wearable, but it lacked punch for there were only so many button down vests and one shoulder dresses, one could stomach. The autumn collection was definitely better, more original and there were a few stand out pieces. However, what irritated me about this collection, was that some pieces seemed entirely un - Moss. For example, that sweet candy pink, preppy knit vest, not exactly rock chick was it? The new collection has a 1970's disco queen, Studio 54 feel combined with all the beads, sparkle and vitality of the 1920's. Of course the rock 'n' roll theme continues, but this time it all about glamour, glitter and night time. As Topshop say about the collection - "Kate's new designs encapsulate luxurious after - dark glamour with a quintessential Kate twist."
Highlights include -Glamorous and sophisticated, Kate Moss's Christmas collection certainly glitters
