Extract of new tell all biography of Kate Moss!

October 19, 2008

In September 2005, things were going well for supermodel Kate Moss.

She was being courted by Swedish high street chain H&M and she had already signed a deal to advertise a clothing range by her friend, designer Stella McCartney, for the same company.

But then the ‘Cocaine Kate’ story broke.

A grainy video, secretly shot at a recording session for Babyshambles, the band fronted by her then boyfriend Pete Doherty, appeared to show her preparing and then snorting cocaine.

Both H&M deals were promptly withdrawn.

Kate’s contract as the face of Coco Mademoiselle perfume was due to expire that October and Chanel decided not to renew it.

Burberry cancelled a new campaign with her. As more brands called off lucrative deals, she was advised to take action.

A week after the scandal, her model agency Storm issued a statement from Kate saying: ‘I take full responsibility for my actions. I also accept that there are various personal issues that I need to address and have started taking the difficult, yet necessary, steps to resolve them.

‘I want to apologise to all of the people I have let down because of my behaviour, which has reflected badly on my family, friends, co-workers, business associates and others. I am trying to be positive, and the support and love I have received are invaluable.’ (more…)


House of Fraser Oxford street has nasty sales assistants!

September 28, 2008

This Saturday I ventured into Oxford street for a good old shop with my little sis …

Normally I would not go into central London for a shop on a Saturday as it’s just too crowded, but we wanted to pop into Selfridges, House of Fraser and also go to the Flagship Topshop as I wanted their lace up peep toe shoe boots and I also wanted to pick up these super fab French Connection boots I saw online at Kurt Geiger.

My sister wanted to shop around for new foundation and this quest led us to try out numerous beauty products in Selfridges. We ended up in Selfridges’s and my sister had her make-up done and she looked completely fantastic so fantastic that she spend a small fortunate on new make-up.

I wish I could say the same but the make-up person that did my Make-up at Bobby Brown has actually put me off the product for life. Her attitude was horrible and the way she applied the make-up was just as bad as her attitude. In particular her application of under eye concelear was so over done that I ended up looking panda eyed.

We also popped into Zara which lifted my spirits completely as I bought the cutest hat, it’s oversized and floppy fabulous and the sales assistant was super fabulous and friendly. My sister bought an oversized trapeze dress that she looks fantastic in.

We then hot trotted over the street and into the House of Fraser and straight to the Kurt Geiger and Carvela concession where I spotted the boots. Naturally, I wanted to try these fab little booties on and approached the sales lady with my usual sunny smile and asked her if I could please try the boots on in a size 8. The sales person had a strange expression on her face (well it was hostility and aggression, I though perhaps I had asked a shopper instead of a sales assistant but looking down I spotted her name tag and was rather surprised at her rude behaviour) this very hostile person gave me a dirty look, did not say a word and turned on her heel and marched to the middle of the shoe section and just kind of looked around and stood there.

One of the other sales assistants who had observed the interaction and saw how rudely I was treated came over and asked if she could help. I thanked her for coming over but declined her help and mentioned that I was shocked at her colleague’s rude behaviour. She mentioned that Saturday is a very busy day for them I looked around the store and there were only four other customers (three sales assistants vs four customers – Wow how do they cope?) I mentioned that there were only four other shoppers in the shoe section and also indicated that the rude sales assistant did not help anyone else she merely walked away to stand in the middle of the store.

I ended up leaving the store and not in the mood for getting the boots after all.

Well at least now I know why there were only four shoppers on a Saturday morning! Because the sales assistants chase all the customers away with their rude behaviour.

For the Attention of the HR Manager of House of Frazer Oxford Street 

Dear House of Fraser in Oxford street,

Do not  worry I will not dream of ever spending a single pound in your store ever again!!

Your sales assistants are the rudest people in the world and are talented NOT at selling but at MAKING PEOPLE RUN OUT OF THE STORE!!

During this credit cruch climate your store IS SURE TO GO UNDER with the rude staff you hire and you’ll be replaced by a Zara. Why? Because the staff are super busy but are always helpful!!!
