Kate Moss Fashion Line Draws Cheers, Shrieks in London

by at . Comments

Kate Moss caused mayhem Monday night - of the professional sort - when she made an appearance at the preview for her Kate Moss Topshop collection in London.

Fans, shoppers and photographers crammed London's Oxford Street to see the Kate Moss sex tape model appear briefly in the window display of Topshop's flagship store.

There, Kate Moss posed with the mannequins in a red limited-edition dress of her own design before retreating back into the store to sip champagne (and possibly blow lines) with pals.

Outside the store, 2,500 customers lined the street, all waiting to get inside for their allocated 20 minutes of seeing Kate Moss nude shopping (each shopper was allowed to buy only five items).

Having stood in line since 1:00 in the afternoon, the last group left at 12:30 a.m. First in line to see a topless Kate Moss the store was a 24-year-old Londoner named Laura, who'd been waiting for seven hours.

"I'm getting tired now," the super model told People. "I've been here a long time, but it will be worth it. Topshop have been really nice, handing out popcorn and water."

Moss, 33, looked on from behind a pillar with her mother and a small group of friends as the first wave of customers ran into the store at 8 p.m.

Looking nervous, the train wreck quickly left just minutes later, leaving Topshop owner Philip Green to walk the store floor.

"She is excited and nervous," he told People. "Until it's out there, you just don't know, do you?"

The 50-piece collection officially launched across the UK Tuesday morning when dedicated shoppers camped overnight for Topshop's 7 a.m. opening. The line will be available in Barneys in the U.S. beginning May 8.

Moss's rocker boyfriend Pete Doherty - who late last year inked a deal to design his own clothing line for the Gio-Goi label - wasn't at the event.

We can't wait until the PeteMoss official clothing line - rumored to be called "heroin chic for the urbanite" hits stores.
