Kate Moss, are you trying to go incognito with your camo-looking one piece???
The famed supermodel stepped out with Topshop’s owner Sir Phillip Green to the brand’s fashion show on Sunday where she sat front row.
Just not next to Anna Wintour…Womp womp.
But it's ok! Because the blonde beauty still looked fabulous in her floral green jumpsuit, furry jacket, and Alaïa suede booties.
Slay on, Kate!

This past Saturday, members of the activist group UK Uncut staged protests at several Topshop locations to voice their anger at Sir Phillip Green.
The Topshop boss has been accused of tax evasion after he directly paid his wife and owner of the UK retailer's parent company Arcadia Group, over $1 billion. Since Green's wife lives in Monaco, he never had to pay UK taxes on the large sum of money.
One protester vented:
"Philip Green is a multi-billionaire tax avoider, and yet is regarded by David Cameron as an appropriate man to advise the government on austerity. His missing millions need to be reclaimed and invested into public services, not into his wife's bank account."
Phillip has maintained he pays his taxes in the UK and is doing nothing wrong.

Almost a week after presenting her final collection for Topshop, Kate Moss is already moving on to her next design project.
The supermodel is rumored to be working on a line of luxurious lingerie with Topshop's Phillip Green.
Kate currently models for Brazilian lingerie company Valisere and previously for Agent Provocateur, so the girl knows her panties.
Bras on the other hand, are a completely different story.

Looks like Sir Phillip Green wasn't telling the whole truth last week when he confirmed that Kate Moss will no longer be designing collections for Topshop, because the partnership is still very much on!
The British retailer said in a new statement:
"Topshop can confirm that the inimitable fashion partnership between Kate Moss and Topshop will enter a new phase in 2011. In the new format, Kate and the Topshop design team will focus on creating Limited Edition drop-in collections, replacing the current Seasonal Collections"
Cokate's first "drop in" will be her top 10 all time favorite looks from the past 14 collections she created and be sold under the name Iconic Kate.
Hopefully the limited edition collections will sell better than her last ones!

good mediocre things must come to an end.
Kate Moss has decided to end her partnership with Topshop.
There have been rumors going around that it was actually Sir Phillip Green who put the kibosh on Cokate's designing gig after a feud erupted between the two, but he insists that's not the case.
"There have been no dramas and we don't need a new muse. There is only one Kate and we are not looking for a replacement. Kate has done 14 collections with us. It has been fantastic for us and fantastic for her, but they take more and more time and she cannot do this full-time any more because she has other commitments."
Other fashion insiders say the partnership has ended because the supermodel's last collection wasn't as successful as the previous ones.
Mossy's final collection for the British retailer will bow in October.

This past weekend, Naomi Campbell and her A-List friends pAArtied it up to celebrate the supermodel's 40th birthday in France.
On Saturday, guests including Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Grace Jones and Topshop's Sir Phillip Green attended Naomi's big 4-0 party held at the Hotel du Cap in Cannes where Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas performed a 45 minute set.
Guests were also treated to two special cocktails: the Campbelltini (vodka, cranberry juice, lime and triple sec) or a Naomito (rum, soda water, brown sugar and fresh mint).
A party goer dished:
"Naomi was loving every minute of it, she has so much energy and was dancing all night. It felt more like a party fro someone in the twenties and by the end of it, Naomi looked completely legless."
Sounds like a good time was had by all, especially Naomi!

We don't know what to think about this.
A Topshop source has revealed that Sir Phillip Green was showing a member of the Walton family around the New York flagship store back in December.
In addition to receiving a tour from the Topshop owner, the unnamed Walton was also given a list of their best-selling items.
Now the conspiracy theories are out on what this rendezvous could mean:
1. The member of the Walmart family is an investor in Arcadia Group, the largest privately owned UK retailer group that owns both Topshop and Topman.
2. Phillip Green was looking for some advice.
3. Walmart and Topshop could be collaborating.
While all those are pretty decent ideas, we'll go ahead and throw our two cents into the ring: it was December! Maybe the Walton was looking to buy a present for a fashion forward friend or family member.
But maybe that's just too obvious.
