Kate Moss Causes Frenzy At London's Topshop!

05/01/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

With just minutes to go until the Kate Moss Topshop line launched in London’s Oxford Circus last night, frenzied fashionistas (yes, I was there and have the bruises to prove it!) crowded around a red velvet curtained window display, no one quite sure what to expect. Much screaming and pushing later the curtains were finally pulled back to reveal a sultry looking Ms. Moss draped over a mannequin in a full length red chiffon gown (limited edition, nearly $400 if you’re wondering). Two poses, 12 seconds later it was all over and the first wave of shoppers ran into the store. With an allocated shopping time of 20 minutes I quickly got down to business ie grabbing everything I could see in my size. If you’re after the must have’s – I can confirm the two biggest sellers last night were the Pansy dress (£45 or $90) and the Kate vest in black (£12 or $24) so get clicking! — Monique Jessen

A selection of the Kate Moss Topshop line will be available in Barneys from May 8 barneys.com, and the entire line is now available on topshop.com (international shipping fees do apply).

I don’t get it. I know she is one of the most famous supermodels in the world, but why go crazy, risk life and limb for something you can be patient for a couple of days and probably get it on discount! Oh wait, they don’t discount courture!!! And how did this woman become even more famous for being a crack sniffin mommy????

I’m not really impressed. Looks like forever 21.

I thought it would be edgier.

It looks the same as everything else.

Elda on

who cares!

Doroty on

What exactly makes those clothes different from the ones that you will find in H&M, Wet Seal or Forever 21 apart from the price tag? Not impressed AT ALL!

Melanie on

I’m not impressed either. It looks like steph said, something from Forever 21, boring.

Jackson on

I don’t like her or her clothing! She is so overrated and looks like hell most of the time!

j on

love her or hate her, the woman is an icon of this generation. her multiple contracts speak for themselves.
btw–‘overrated’ is a term better used on someone like the jlos, paris’, lindsays, and beyonces of the world, jackson!!

You know how I feel about celebrity designers and I guess the same goes for Moss. I must admit though, Kate does seem to have a thing that makes people crazy for her.

And I saw that same vest in target I beleive.

A fashion ICON of this generation? I don’t think so … she does nothing. More than likely this isn’t her creation she just puts her name on it.

Definition of Icon: somebody or something widely and uncritically admired, especially somebody or something symbolizing a movement or field of activity …. Kate Moss – NOT!

Does she even speak …

Although I did like a few of the pieces I have to agree with a lot of people that none of the clothes were edgy or unique. Its stuff that I could go into many different stores and buy and for much cheaper.
