戒毒后人气反涨 凯特•莫斯获最佳模特奖
[ 2006-11-03 09:00 ]

2006年是超级名模凯特·莫斯的回归年,而且,回归的耀眼和辉煌。过去一年里,这个身材瘦削的女人因吸毒被曝光,先后被知名品牌毁约。戒毒后,她又重回T台,依旧大受欢迎。曾经终止合同的众多品牌又向她抛出橄榄枝,但这一次,她要价比以往任何时候都要高。本周二,在享有盛名的“英国时尚奖”颁奖典礼上,凯特·莫斯获“2006最佳模特奖”。

 

 

Supermodel Kate Moss won the prestigious Model of the Year prize at the British Fashion Awards on Thursday just over a year after a cocaine scandal threatened to derail her lucrative career.

Mother-of-one Moss was not at the glitzy award ceremony at London's Victoria and Albert Museum, but designer Vivienne Westwood accepted the prize for her, a spokeswoman for the British Fashion Council said.

"There was a massive cheer and Westwood went up on stage to accept it on her behalf," she said. "Kate wasn't here unfortunately. She couldn't make it."

Photographs of Moss apparently snorting large quantities of cocaine appeared in the Daily Mirror tabloid last September. She subsequently attended a drug rehabilitation program in the United States and apologized for her behavior.

The scandal, for which the 32-year-old was dubbed "cocaine Kate", prompted some advertisers to drop Moss, who has graced the covers of countless glossy magazines.

But she quickly recovered from the setback, securing high-profile contracts with several companies and earning more since the scandal than beforehand, according to fashion industry experts.

London-born Moss has featured in at least 18 major campaigns this season -- from Dior to makeup brand Rimmel.

As well as her striking looks and renowned sense of fashion, Moss has also been in the media glare because of her on-off relationship with British rocker Pete Doherty, a self-confessed drug addict who has been in and out of court over the past year.

Recent pictures and newspaper reports suggest that the couple are back together, and there has even been speculation that they are engaged to be married.

A spokesman for Doherty declined to comment on the rumors.

Other winners on the night included Giles Deacon, who received the Designer of the Year award, Marios Schwab for New Designer, Westwood for Red Carpet Designer and b Store for Shop of the Year.

The ceremony attracted the cream of British fashion, who sat around sparkling, silver-topped tables, sipping pink champagne.
