Topic: Kate Moss and Leah Wood perform a steamy striptease on stage! Return to archive
02-18-02 09:30 AM

ONLY in London could Kate Moss be persuaded to perform a steamy striptease on stage just for laughs. Actually, it was for friend Sadie Frost, who launched her three-year-old label FrostFrench at London Fashion Week at the Duke of York's Theatre on St Martin's Lane last night, and Kate was joined on the boards by fellow catwalk veteran Rose Ferguson, Ron's daughter Leah Wood, and Holly, sexy Sadie's even sexier sister. The foursome had been cast as four different incarnations of the FrostFrench girl, in a mini-play not too well narrated by Holby City's Lisa Faulkner - Cool Girl, Rock Chick, Soul Girl and Book Girl – and each oozed, as she slipped in and out of various items from the FrostFrench range for autumn/winter, preparing for a date with fictional "super-rat" Kid. Kate saucily slipped in and out of a cosy, rosy pink hooded top and distressed brown mini, and zipped herself into over-the-knee boots while the Stones sang "She comes in colours…" Smoking Rose followed in an indigo denim mechanic's jumpsuit (with disarmingly pretty puff sleeves), unzipped to the waist over a black boobtube, which were soon swapped for a pair of hipsters in blood-clot red and a punkish pulled neck, frill-sleeved red T. Then Leah, then Holly. At times, the audience was even more watchable. In the boxes flanking the stage, a motley crew of fashion and TV types overhung the balconies, Fran Cutler, Meg Mathews, and Patsy Palmer sharing one, Ron Wood and Anita Pallenberg another, while Mario Testino and Rhys Ifans looked on from opposite sides of the palladium. This may have been FrostFrench's first foray into real fashion, having started as a lingerie line. But if the collection is set to launch one trend, it's super-long socks, in Kate's case baby pink thigh-highs, in Rose's over-the-knee black ones, and for Leah, school-girl reds. Oh, and diamond-studded knickers. (February 18 2002, AM)

CS Moss kicks off her clothes for Fashion Week
(Filed: 18/02/2002)

KATE MOSS showed her knickers, waved her knee-high boots in the air and then flung off her bra behind a screen.

Call it a stylish striptease but it was all in the name of fashion.

The actress Sadie Frost and her business partner, Jemima French, took over the Duke of York's Theatre for a one-act drama to promote their clothing range, FrostFrench, at London Fashion Week last night.

Leah Wood peeled off her clothes and Rosemary Ferguson went topless in a pair of scanties.

Leah's father, the Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood, whooped and catcalled as the girls went through their paces.

They inched their way into skin-tight jeans or squeezed into micro-minis, short enough to make the wearing of knickers mandatory.

Now in its third season, FrostFrench has become a young cult range, selling in Japan and America as well as the UK.

In another show at the weekend, Topshop, the high street chain, made retail history by stealing a march as it launched Unique, its autumn-winter 2002-03 collection, 12 hours before the British designer contingent.

The avant garde young talent Russell Sage went back in time to the 18th century, rescued some tattered brocade curtains from a French chateau and re-created them as evening-wear, some complete with the tarnished brass curtain rings dangling from one shoulder.

London Fashion Week is the £13 billion clothing industry's principal twice-yearly showcase. The week includes 42 catwalk shows and 15 presentations over six days. A further 132 designers are showing their collections in the exhibition tent.

Topshop, which has increased its stake in future fashion by becoming the sponsor of the New Generation show, a platform for rising stars, unofficially opened the week with its catwalk show at Hoxton Circus in the East End on Saturday night.

It was the first British autumn-winter offering for 2002 since the New York Fashion Week shows which ended on Friday. Like many New York designers, the Topshop team were into a new form of glamour-grunge, layering denim with sequinned chiffon and sheepskin with silk.

The clothes were funky and streetwise, designed by an in-house team led by Nick Passmore, a graduate of Lancashire University. Originally planned as a capsule offering for just two or three key stores, the Unique collection has proved so successful that Topshop executives plan to stock pieces in nearly all stores.

Along with 18th-century French curtaining, Russell Sage re-invented handwoven Gainsborough silk and 19th-century damask as modern clothing, mixing these with pure wools and cashmere.

As a finale, models appeared in creations made from burnt wallpaper which crumbled to shreds.

CS Supermodel Kate Moss turned actress last night at a West End theatre. Okay, so it was a non-speaking role and it did involve a lot of gratuitous display of flesh, but Moss was more than happy to oblige in her new role at the Duke of York's Theatre in St Martin's Lane.

When a friend like actress Sadie Frost calls in a favour, it would be churlish to say no. Frost, with designer Jemima French, 34, had chosen the novel setting of the theatre to show off her new range of lingerie, as a well as a few bits of clothing.

The new autumn and winter 2002 Frost French range was incorporated into a 15-minute play about four different girls seeing the same man, written by Frost herself. Models Moss, Rosemary Ferguson, Frost's 20-year old sister Holly and Ronnie Wood's daughter Leah stripped off and changed into multiple outfits to the applause of a celebrity crowd including former EastEnders actress Patsy Palmer, Meg Mathews, Holby City's Lisa Faulkner, Sixties model Anita Pallenberg and Mario Testino, photographer to the rich and famous. There to cheer their loved ones were Frost's actor husband Jude Law, Moss's magazine publisher boyfriend Jefferson Hack and Ronnie and Jo Wood.

"It's all very tongue-in-cheek, but I'm terrified in case it's a disaster," said a nervous Frost before the show. "I don't think I'll watch it, but go for a stiff drink in the pub opposite instead."

She shouldn't have worried. Watching Moss and Co struggle in and out of various revealing outfits was never going to make for dull viewing. And as for the clothes? Frost French are now in their third season since setting up in 1999 and are expert at producing the kind of sexy underwear and clothes that girls just can't get enough of - printed with cute butterfly motifs, flying geese and dice.

As for Moss's West End acting debut? Well, at least, with her new hair extensions and all, she had never looked better.
