Things Get Kate-otic at the Launch of the Kate Moss for Topshop Collection

It’s almost that time!  Kate Moss‘s new collection for Topshop lands tomorrow and to heighten the excitement (as if our anxiety levels weren’t high enough) the supermodel took over the retailer’s Oxford Circus flagship store today to celebrate with its biggest launch party to date!

Surrounded by her mother Linda, her half-sister Lottie, and a number of her closest pals, Kate once again took to the stage set up inside the store window to join Topshop CEO Sir Phillip Green and pal Nick Grimshaw in introducing the highly-anticipated new collection to the vast crowd of eager shoppers.  Dressed in an all-black pinstripe suit and Christian Louboutin heels, the style icon was all smiles as she wished the crowds “Happy shopping” before introducing Duke Dumont, a favorite DJ of Moss’s, and singer Kelli-Leigh who staged a special performance of the single “I Got U.”

Shop the Look: Kate Moss’ Most Iconic Looks for Less!

By now, it’s a known fact that nobody dresses like Kate Moss. From her early ’90s grunge days, to the ultra-glam pieces she wore while walking the red carpet with Johnny Depp, and her penchant, at times, for a more bohemian-meets-Glastonbury look, Kate’s signature brand of effortless cool has launched literally thousands of trends and even its own best-selling collection for Topshop, the latest of which hits store tomorrow!

The supermodel-turned-designer is back with a whole new must-have collection for the retailer, on sale Wednesday, and this time it’s not only inspired by her high-priced designer wardrobe, but quite literally modeled after it! While flipping through the lookbook these past few weeks, we’ve noticed more than a few similarities between Kate’s most iconic looks and her latest Topshop designs— all 40 pieces of it.  From her famed vintage yellow chiffon number worn in 2003 to an AnOther magazine party in NYC, to replica of last year’s Prada LBD, a number of Kate’s biggest hits can be found in the new collection, making it easier than ever to shop Kate’s style.  Best of all, the Topshop pieces will cost you only a fraction of what Kate’s actual wardrobe must be worth!

Ready to score Kate Moss’ signature style for way less? Make note of the pieces below and prepare to shop until you drop tomorrow when the collection lands in store at Topshop and Nordstrom, and online at topshop.com, Net-a-Porter.com and nordstrom.com.

MJ Day Shares the First Look at the 2015 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

It seems like only yesterday that we were picking up our copies of the 2014 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue at newsstands, and now, just two months after its release, we’re already turning our attention to next year’s edition!

For the better part of the past week, SI Swimsuit editor and bikini dream maker MJ Day has been documenting the first of the magazine’s 2015 swimsuit shoots, sharing behind-the-scenes snaps of the models on Instagram.  Not ready to let the cat out of the bag just yet, Day made sure to cut out the model’s faces, focusing instead on their swim attire and err, more famous assets for another exciting round of “Guess the Model.”

Still, even that wasn’t enough to keep some of the issue’s biggest fans from figuring out the identity of Day’s bikini-clad beauties. One photo in particular of a tanned model posing with a makeup brush between her bikini top has already generated speculation that it is of 2011 cover girl Irina Shayk, while other  photos remain a complete mystery.

While Irina has yet to post any such photos to her Instagram, she has shared snaps of her hard at work on the set of a photo shoot on the beach in Miami.  It may not be the Maldives, but let’s face it, a beach is a beach when Irina Shayk and bikinis are involved.

Ready for the first look at next year’s Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue?  Follow editor MJ Day on Instagram and get ready to put your model knowledge to the test!

Style Sightings: Where Were Your Favorite Victoria’s Secret Models This Weekend?

If we learned anything this weekend, it’s that models don’t need a red carpet to have a buzz-worthy good time.  From New York to London, there was no shortage of model sightings, each one looking more fun than the last.

To start, British besties Suki Waterhouse, Cara Delevingne and Georgia May Jagger lit up the town on Saturday with a raucous girls night out in West London.  The model trio let their hair down as they ventured out for dinner in Chelsea and were clearly in the mood for fun with Suki leading the way as they pulled a series of funny faces while racing down the street.

Meanwhile, in New York, Lily Aldridge was busy giving Taylor Swift some major “Audrey Hepburn vibes” while schooling her in a game of pool.  The Victoria’s Secret Angel channeled the famous style icon by recreating one of her all-black looks (flats included) as she enjoyed a billiards game with the singer.  Though fellow Swift BFF and Victoria’s Secret Angel Karlie Kloss was not present for the pool match up, she did manage to squeeze in some time with Taylor. The two VS Fashion Show pals were spotted meeting at a private gym in Soho the following day, where Karlie was busy fitting in a quick workout before heading out for the afternoon with Taylor.

On the West Coast, Alessandra Ambrosio and her fiance Jamie Mazur enjoyed some quality time with their little ones, treating them to a day at Santa Monica’s ocean side Pacific Park.  The Brazilian bombshell was all smiles as she spent the day braving the theme park rides with her mini me Anja and soaking up the Cali sun.

Scroll through the photos below to see what your favorite models were up to this weekend!
