Kate Moss getting escorted off of an EasyJet plane following a seven-day detox has some social media fashionistas (fashion fans) shaking their heads, others closing their eyes in disbelief or rolling their eyes into the back of their heads as they deal with the embarrassment of her actions which 'reek' of a desperate public relations stunt to stay relevant as an 'elte' model (The Guardian - June 9).
The top models in 2015 such as Alessandra Ambrosio, Gisele Bundchen, Doutzen Kroes and Joan Smalls are revered both for their beauty, sophistication, and pleasant off-the runway personalities. They display immense pride and class as the face of various fashion apparel companies. Kate Moss even with all her recent success is not one of the first names fashionistas think of when the topic is elite models unless she is being discussed for some public act such as being part of some ridiculous act such as getting drunk on a 'budget' plane flight while returning home from a seven-day detox at the luxurious LifeCo Turkish spa located closed to the Aegean Sea.
As some fashion fans on social media have noted, how could Kate Moss, a supermodel who earned GBP 4.6 million, not afford a private plane for which she and her friends could fly home? What would possess them to travel on a budget airline with luggage restrictions, a reality that would basically negate travelling on such an airline for many fashionistas who need multiple bags for their trips unless she 'wanted' to create a public spectacle so people would start talking about her?
Moreover, after spending several days in a 'detox' would a person's first thought not be to find one of those great Turkish restaurants and eat a meal fit for a queen before boarding a plane to fly back to England?
The events associated with Kate Moss' being kicked off her plane when looked at by the discerning eye of some social media fashionistas evoke responses such as 'sad' publicity stunt and desperate attempt of a model trying to be remain a topic of discussion.
Kate Moss' being escorted off her EasyJet flight while cursing at the employees and calling them "basic bitches" showed her to be in the eyes of some social media fashionistas as a model no longer worthy of being a model brand ambassador and sadly might be an event that at the end of 2015 could be looked at as the beginning of the end of her being considered a 'relevant' supermodel.
Major companies no longer tolerate having the 'face' of their brands embarrass them by acting like ill-mannered school kids (see Jeremy Clarkson) and as such Kate Moss fans might want to get prepared for seeing less of her as a model as she might soon be losing some modelling contracts as a result of her poor (inexcusable) behavior.
