Topshop owner Sir Philip Green is no fool. He’s seen the fury with which shoppers ravage the racks and online store when a new Kate Moss line launches. Certain pieces sell out in as little as twenty minutes, girls fight each other for them on the sales floor, the unlucky ones left bloodied, trampled and missing a few large tufts of hair. Well, not really. But still, people do fight! So it’s no surprise Green’s renewed Kate Moss’s contract for the next three years, a deal reportedly worth about $6.1 million a year. Better yet, Kate will launch new collections of accessories and lingerie. We New Yorkers can actually get excited about this news because once Topshop opens in Soho in the spring (fingers crossed for an on-time opening), we can fight each other for the pieces! Because her filmy butt-skimming shirts passed off as dresses, booty shorts, and frothy tops are totally worth a bitch slap or two. We just urge you to remember that just because Kate Moss wears tights as pants doesn’t mean you have to, too.
