Kate Moss Cannot Die

Kate Moss is in more than one way an anomaly. Gorgeous girl no doubt, but her life has been rife with what for others would be career ending issues (Pete Doherty could anyone’s career). An uphill climb from the beginning being one of the shortest super-models at 5′ 6 1/2″, a Verne Troyer in the industry by most standards. She went on to headline pretty much every major runway show, endorsement and major high-fashion spreads with coke lines and drunk binges in between. She has since recanted and recouped and now not even her age (34) can stop her as she continues to snatch up some of the most lucrative deals in the industry, including this one.

British artist Marc Quinn took the Kate wagon and threw some bling on it sculpting her life size in solid gold and titled it “Siren”. Yes solid fricking gold. Valued at $2.7 million and going on public display for the first time at the British Museum in London. Touted as the largest solid gold sculpture in the world since ancient Egypt he also has other renditions in Marble. When it comes to large scale provocative installation art the Brits do it pretty well.
