Which of Kate Moss’s Body Parts Inspired a Champagne Glass?

For decades, Kate Moss has been admired for her looks: her dewy eyes, creamy complexion, stunning legs. Now, another body part can be added to the must-love list: her left breast.

As part of the celebration of the British supermodel’s 25th year in the fashion industry, a London restaurant has based a champagne glass, or coupe, on Moss’s breast, according to British Vogue.

The eatery 34 took its cue from Marie Antoinette. Though she was never a supermodel, the notorious beauty queen of France did apparently have a superbly shaped left breast (how come lefties get all the attention?), and it inspired the very first champagne coupe made in the 18th century. British artist Jane McAdam Freud, who designed the Kate Moss glass, studied the Antoinette stemware then gave it a 21st-century spin.

Moss is thrilled to be in such historic company. “What an honor to be alongside Marie Antoinette — she was a very intriguing and mischievous character,” the 40-year-old said. “Champagne is always associated with celebration and happy occasions and I had fun creating this beautiful coupe.”

Besides 34, the Kate Moss Coupe will be available in October at three other London restaurants: The Ivy, Daphne’s and Scott’s.

We wonder if Moss’s overlooked right boob will be staging a protest.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
