Art lovers have been offered a first glimpse of the £1.5 million solid gold sculpture of supermodel Kate Moss.

The 50kg statue will go on display in the Nereid Gallery of the British Museum, where it will be surrounded by beauties such as Crouching Venus, the goddess of love.


Is it only me that thinks Kate Moss is nothing special and totally overrated? (80% of my friends are better looking). She is a terrible role model and hangs around with very dubious people.

A solid gold sculpture? Why?

I have to say - to me she is just a scrawny druggie grin albeit a very rich one!

theressomethingaboutmarie Thu 28-Aug-08 10:47:06

i completely agree with you. She is no role model (pardon the pun) - I don't see what all the fuss is about her.

VinegarTits Thu 28-Aug-08 10:59:31

That is barmey! i can think of better, much more deservedly people as role models, but still dont think anyone, not even the queen deserves a solid gold sculpture of herself! Who approves these things anyway? this country has got its priorities so wrong

See now I am getting to like her more and more....spots getting more obvious, looks fading, losing contracts to younger girls. The longer she stays in the limelight the better chance you have of showing your own kids how sad and empty it is to build a whole life based on being pretty, because you are only going to get knocked back when it all goes.

<will have to hide the bit that says she has 45 million quid in the bank, obviously>

Gawd the woman gets on my tits, she's not even nice looking she just looks like a heroin addict.

C'mon how many Women do you know who look like that? She is where she is for good reason. She looks exquisite.

MrsMattie Thu 28-Aug-08 13:01:02

She is incredibly photogenic, but I have seen her / sort of met her in RL and she is not exquisite. You wouldn't look twice at her.

That's not the point, though, The point is the weirdy way the fashion world and media are obssessed with a woman who does...urm...what? Nothing of any significance, as far as I can see.

she is divine!!!!

nailpolish Thu 28-Aug-08 13:01:52

she is very good at her job

i think thats the point

CrushWithEyeliner Thu 28-Aug-08 13:03:06

who looks like this?

DrNortherner Thu 28-Aug-08 13:03:26

She is a very talented and sucessful model. She does not bang on about her private life, keeps a low profile and keeps her dd out of public eye.

I find it hard to believ that 80% of OP's mates are better looking!

TheCrackFox Thu 28-Aug-08 13:05:57

I think she is a tad over-rated. Just another pretty face. Meaningless in the grand scheme of things.

Oliveoil Thu 28-Aug-08 13:07:13

good lord what a bitchy thread

rubbing hands with glee over a woman's looks going???


and they say men are misogynists (sp?)...

nailpolish Thu 28-Aug-08 13:08:52

phtographers she has worked with all say she is very good at her job - she does exactly what they are looking for and doesnt need to be told over and over again, very easy to work with and is v professional

IE doest matter waht job you do if you are good at it you will go far

DrNortherner Thu 28-Aug-08 13:08:56

sOME WOMEN DON'T LIKE Attractive women Olive just because they are attractive.

Gets my goat. (have I got a goat?)

Oliveoil Thu 28-Aug-08 13:10:54

I am sure you look like a goat

or I hope you do as I am a bitter old hag [copyright MN lore]

i saw some photos of her in the national portrait gallery on tues, they are intriguing as they are the only "real" photos I've seen of her

hate her mogelling pics, it would actually put me off buying any of the wares she advertises (if i could afford them!)

Oliveoil Thu 28-Aug-08 13:14:34

well I think she is fab fab fab

you never see her selling her private life off in Hello etc

and when all the coke stuff broke, she just carried on

other z list types would have been pictured sobbing entering the Priory or something equally vomit inducing

There was a stunning photo of her in the British Journal of Photography about a year ago, can't remember the name of the photographer or I'd link it.

It was very harsh lighting, without a scrap of makeup, no retouching whatsoever, and for the first time I could absolutely see what the fuss is about. She is astoundingly symmetrical, with incredible bone structure. Really breathtaking.

MrsMattie Thu 28-Aug-08 13:17:16

I don't think it's misogynistic to say that modelling is a vapid, shallow profession and that the horrible, superficial arse kissing world that is the fashion world is really a not very nice place, filled with not very njce people!

...or that I don't think Kate Moss is beautiful because, unlike the fashion bosses and designers and media moguls (most of whom are old men, many of them gay), I don't find emaciated, scruffy androgynous women particularly attractive.

Oh, and I modelled for a while in my teens. OK, so I was more C&A catalogue than Dolce e Gabbana's Milan shows grin, but trust me, you don't need talent to succeed! you just need to have the face that fits and be very, very thin.

MrsMattie Thu 28-Aug-08 13:19:00

Oh, and seeing as Kate Moss has made millions for herself and all the fashion houses pedalling an the illusion that beautiful women have to be size 6 and look about 14 yrs old, I don't feel that much sisterly solidarity with her smile

francagoestohollywood Thu 28-Aug-08 13:19:00

I actually like her.

Oliveoil Thu 28-Aug-08 13:20:38

maybe you met the wrong people?

I think it is horrible to say that you would like someone better as their looks are going

Oliveoil Thu 28-Aug-08 13:21:03

if she looks 14 I am an elephant
