Rihanna and Kate Moss nearly nude for V Magazine | Jamie Tuohy

Somewhere, somewhere, somebody is rubbing their hands with glee after thinking up this stroke of genius. (Yes, I realised the potential for double entendre!)

Yes, these pictures need little introduction or explanation, it’s a purely gratuitous post.

Kate Moss. Rihanna. Nearly Nude. Mario Testino. Magazine spread.

Get your hands on V Magazine when this issue is released on December 12th.

Kate Moss Offers Nick Grimshaw EXTREMELY BAD Advice | Jamie Tuohy

Nick Grimshaw certainly isn’t short of celebrity friends. If he needs some friendly advice, he can turn to the likes of Harry Styles, Pixie Geldolf or Alexa Chung. So perhaps his supermodel mate Kate Moss wasn’t the best person to offer advice on what his new morning routine should be as the breakfast host of BBC1 Radio 1.

Kate believes that Nick should act like former Radio 1 host Chris Evans did back in the 90s and not turn up for work. Nick, or Grimmy as he is known as, said,

“When I got the job, Kate said to me ‘What you wanna do, darling, is do what I do. Sometimes I go to work. Sometimes I go to work hungover. Sometimes I don’t turn up at all.

“People love that. They don’t know what to expect.’

“I said, ‘Kate, that’s what Chris Evans did.’ She said, ‘Exactly, darling, everybody loved Chris Evans.’ I said, ‘Kate, they sacked him.’ ”

Grimshaw will be starting his new job on September 24 and if he wants to last until the 25th, maybe it’s best to ignore the Croydon-born model’s advice, who is more known these days for her wild partying antics than her catwalk career.

Nick, who is a bit of a party boy himself and has recently been spotted out clubbing with his new BFF Harry Styles was an unexpected choice for the position, as it was widely speculated that long-term BBC-er Fearne Cotton would land the gig, or even that it would be offered to her mate Greg James.

However, when Grimmy was announced to replace Chris Moyles as host of the BBC1 Breakfast show, talk soon began of how he was chosen to rejuvenate the ailing audience figures and inject some youth back into the show’s image.

With big responsibilities on your shoulders Nick, Kate Moss isn’t the first person I’d listen to, when it comes to wise words about work ethics!

“Commeth the hour, commeth the man” – Jamie Tuohy

Gentlemen, for years we have been on the receiving end of fashion’s perfunctory tokenism; with only one day at London Fashion Week dedicated to Menswear. Amidst the tottering of Christian Louboutins and champagne-sipping, haute couture clad fashionistas exists Men’s Day. Essentially, it’s a few hours in which designers showcase their male threads, before turning their attention back to Kate Moss and her crew. Now don’t get me wrong, it is a VERY nice crew, but I can’t help but feel that us guys are fashion’s l’esprit d’escalier – a nice afterthought when all the fun and games have finished. Well, gents, the fashion pack have listened and the time has come to raise your beer bottles or/and scotch filled tumblers at the news that London’s first EVER Men’s Fashion Week will take place from June 14th to 17th.

Following in the footsteps of Paris and Milan, where men have long enjoyed their own fashion weeks, on 14th June 2012, HRH The Prince of Wales will host a reception at St James’s Palace to celebrate the launch of LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN. Far be it for me to question the mathematical logistics of the event, it appears that it is more of a weekend than a fully blown, week-long extravaganza. However, with names like GQ Editor Dylan Jones, Burberry’s Christopher Bailey, model David Gandy and rapper Tinie Tempah on the committee, if it’s being billed as a week, then a week it is! LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN officially begins on 15th June and will feature the very best in British designers, with a few Irish names thrown in to the mix. The British Fashion Council has said that the event is “a development of the Men’s day at London Fashion Week” and each showcase will be embedded into the city’s cultural programme.

LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN will open on Friday 15th June with shows from Steven Webster, Burberry and Oliver Spencer, before Saturday’s highlights, including Jonathan Saunders, RAKE and Belstaff. Sunday’s finale will see the likes of Christopher Kane and Richard Nicholl previewing their SS’13 collections and the day’s proceedings will be opened by Irish designer J.W. Anderson. There are a few invite-only gatherings taking place, with dinners being thrown by Tommy Hilfiger, Mr Porter and Tom Ford, just a selection of the weekend’s highly exclusive soirees. However, the large majority of the shows will be in The Hospital Club, 24 Endell Street, Covent Garden and are open to the general public. As well as featuring the usual high-end designers, LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN will be championing the newest names in menswear and the 3 day showcase will allow fashion’s newest talents to earn their stripes on the international stage.

With the first ever Men’s Fashion Week in London in the coming weeks, the Olympics beckoning and sound of music festivals on the horizon, the city is set to be a hive of activity for the summer months. Preceding the rest of the bi-annual European Menswear fashion weeks, LONDON COLLECTIONS: MEN will kick-start the men’s fashion calendar. As fashion becomes more egalitarian and pays homage to us gents, a host of stars are set to turn up for the event’s launch on June 14th, and I’m sure none of us guys will object to “Kate Moss and her crew” making an appearance. Punctuated by style, sport and music, London really is the place to be for summer 2012.
