Blog: Leonie BarrieKate ‘n’ Calvin...again

Leonie Barrie | 7 April 2006

Well they do say there’s no such thing as bad publicity, and in the case of Kate Moss this certainly seems to be true. From the initial fall-out of photographs supposedly showing the top model snorting cocaine – which resulted in the loss of several lucrative advertising contracts and a spell in rehab – she’s bounced back with gusto. Her most recent signing with Calvin Klein brings her career round full circle, since the designer label helped establish the model as one of the ‘supers’ back in the 1990s.

It’s not that long ago that I sided with those who felt Moss had a duty to set a good example to her fashion fans, but it could also be argued that she’s done just this by successfully facing up to her demons and working hard to rebuild her career.
