Kate Moss meets her own skeleton as she attends pal’s book launch

The supermodel was confronted with the 12ft work by New York street artist Bradley Theodore, much to her bemusement as she attended the event held at popular showbiz haunt Hotel Chantelle, in Marylebone London. “I’m told that’s me. Err, wow,” she said, while she stood smoking next to the painting. Kate, 41, was supporting her best friend, Annabelle Neilson, 46, at the launch of her new children’s book, Angry Me.

Minnie: Style Icon, which runs in partnership with the British Fashion Council, runs from September 18 - 20 at the Black Members Club on Dean Street. The exhibition will show photographs, sketches, celebrity portraits and fashions spreads from the 1930s up until the present day. Among the collection will be never-seen-before Minnie-inspired images of Georgia May Jagger, Herb Ritts’ iconic 1987 photographs of Madonna with Minnie ears and Chanel Iman’s African-themed Minnie shoot for the German Vogue. Minnie was first seen in the 1928 cartoon Steam Boat Willy, alongside Mikey. She was styled as a twenties flapper, based on the actress Colleen Moore.

(courtesy of MOI'M New York) Renowned street artist Bradley Theodore partnered with Mackage, the high-fashion outerwear store, to create “The Underground Artist,” a temporary exhibition featuring a range of sculptures, paintings, photography prints and a large scale projection. Mackage has a window decked out with “Kissing Skulls,” a painting of colorful intertwining skulls hanging above a coat from their new Fall/Winter 2015 collection.

Theodore was a natural fit for Mackage’s high fashion and contemporary brand because Mackage has cultivated its own iconic fan base with its fashion. “Dancing Skulls” best embodies this duality. Tate Modern highlights pop art by women ignored by sexist establishment. Work by female artists from the 1960s and 70s that was marginalised and ignored by a sexist art establishment is finally getting recognition in a major pop art show at Tate Modern.

“It’s never too late,” said Jessica Morgan, curator of the World Goes Pop exhibition, explaining how she and her fellow curators spent five years uncovering the hidden stories from an art movement largely remembered as Anglo-American and male. The part played by female artists in particular had been “removed and erased” from the story of pop art. One of those artists is Judy Chicago who made her name in 1979 with her installation The Dinner Party, on permanent display at the Brooklyn Museum. Asked how sexist the art establishment was in the 60s, Chicago threw up her arms and exclaimed: “Oh my God! When I left graduate school I was exhibiting in a climate that was unbelievably inhospitable to women.

“This show is fabulous, it’s wonderful,” said Chicago.
