Kate Moss

Blimey, Kate Moss is at it now. Her self-portrait, drawn in lipstick, has just sold for £33,600. This portrait was originally a gift to Pete Doherty but he sold it. See BBC News for more information.
New ad for Rimmel, perhaps?

Mm .. money well spent. What would the ad tag line be? 'Blood Red Lips - For the Sweaty Junky In You'? Mr Prescott could have bought a lot of pies for £33k, or even another Jag.

Well, that could work Kate, that could work . . . but Rimmel really should've got their paws on that drawing . . . wonder if they did.

I thought it was in 'lipstick and blood'...

Whatever. It's still crap. Kate does a Yoko Ono. With less class.

Can you tell I can't bear her?

scarlet-blue said...

Erm . . . yes Puss . . . I can tell she's not your favourite . . . !

Drawing her own profile was a clever trick. I suppose you can see it if your dressing table has side mirrors. One of you ladies should know.

scarlet-blue said...

She probably did it from memory Mr B . . . smudged it with fag ash, and set it with hairspray.

One of my sons is a model (photographic and catwalk), and it is the stupidest world. They are all gits; on a sliding scale.

The Dotterel said...

Looks nothing like her... Oh, it's art.

scarlet-blue said...

Did you ever do any modelling Mrs P? I can imagine you running around with Anthony Amstrong-Jones and being a bit flighty . . .

Hello Mr Dotterel, well, I think it looks a bit like her . . . it's smudgy . . . and she is smudgy . . .

Some people have more money than sense. I wish they'd come and look at the junk Im flogging on ebay! :)

BEAST said...

Thank the lord it wasn't a portrait of Pillsbury dough Boy Docherty.....greasy little toad

scarlet-blue said...

Ms Cake, don't bother with ebay; take your stuff to Sotheby's or Lyon and Turnbull - you'll get a better return.

Beastie! Yep, he does look like the dough boy . . .

Tazeen said...

She is famous, even if she painted with her poo, it would have gotten loads of money.


PS: Moral of the story: Never gift such a personal item to a junkie, no matter how much you are in love, it will out on the streets soon.

scarlet-blue said...

Well Tazeen, at least lipstick smells nice . . . over time the lipstick will form grease halos on the paper . . . it will look even messier . . . such is life . . .

BEAST said...

Not as messy as our kate is gonna look in a few years when here septum falls one suspects Miss Scarlet

scarlet-blue said...

Quite right Beast . . . we'll have to get used to seeing the side profile of Kate.

I'd pay double that to have her removed to a remote South Pacific atoll with that chump of a boyfriend of hers. With Naomi Campbell on the next barge.

scarlet-blue said...

Erm . . . so Kate isn't a favourite of yours either!?

It is rubbish - just a doodle..

scarlet-blue said...

Hello Mutley . . . how about if it was drawn with dog meat?

Now we all know what Ms. Moss will be spending her earnings on. A wild weekend with Doherty shooting dope up their asses and making fecal finger paintings that will sell for twice what the lipstick doodle got.
