Kate Moss: New Face of Dior

Paris Fashion Week closes a busy schedule of fashion shows after a non-stop tour of international fashion weeks that start in New York, goes through London and Milan, and ends in Paris. With Paris Fashion Week, it occurs only twice a year, once in the autumn- fall, winter and spring, and summer seasons.

 Louis Vuitton known for his luxurious trunks and leather goods, used Kate Moss as one of his runway models for his collection. His designs were about obscure object of desire: corsets, patent leather boots, see-through raincoats and handcuffs. All of his models were carrying handbags even the ones in handcuffs.

Closing out the show , 37 year old, Kate Moss, stormed the runway with a glamorous look worn during Louis Vuitton’s Show at Paris Fashion Week.   While the designer showed off his new fall collection, Kate displayed her look as she smokes a cigarette down the catwalk.  According to Mail Online, she divided the fashion world over her smoking entrance onto the runway – where she lit a cigarette before puffing on it as she strutted down the catwalk for Louis Vuitton –and days later was causing chaos at the after-party. Not only was she the center of attention at Paris Fashion Week, she was also extremely unstable on her feet and had to be helped a number of times after falling, according to reports.

Kate Moss gave quite a show in her rubber lace jacket, crocodile boots and hotpants which broke the crowd into a automatic applause. She’s such a gorgeous person, but smoking may not be the best choice especially when it changes your natural look.
