Kate Moss And Naomi Campbell Come Under Fire At Olympics Closing Ceremony


The Olympics went out with bang with a star-studded - if a little muddled and disappointing - closing ceremony last night, but the part of the show dedicated to fashion has received heavy criticism.

Models including Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Georgia May Jagger and Lily Cole took to the stage in clothes by designers such as Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen.

But many took issue with Moss' inclusion, due to her hell-raising past and history with drugs.

Serial Twitter troll Piers Morgan said "I suspect Kate Moss might fail her drugs test later".

Guardian journalist Charles Arthur said "Kate Moss! Who represents the Olympic ideals of not doing drugs, or smoking, and achieving lots. Work with me here."

Not sure if we'd describe one of the UK's most successful models and designers as not having achieved much, but maybe that's just us...

Notoriously short-tempered Naomi Campbell also came under fire, with novelist Jojo Mayes writing "Naomi Campbell: gold medal in phone throwing."

There were also many who questioned the inclusion of clothes designed by Victoria Beckham being counted as among the best of British design.

Her clothing lines have only been around for a few years, and have not always received rave reviews. She's also been criticised for marketing herself as a British designer while her clothes are produced in Morocco and Portugal.

Whilst we understand some of the criticism, no one seems to have mentioned Russell Brand who's hell-raising past and previous run-ins with the BBC seem to have been forgotten! Brand was even an outspoken critic of the Olympics, telling US talk show host Conan O'Brien ahead of the games:

"'I like England and I am from there. But when it involves organisation it is going to be a right balls up. Things will catch fire and people will be tripping over things, then it start raining and the Queen will do a fart."

Put a megaphone in his hand and get him to 'sing' a Beatles classic in front of 80,000 euphoric spectators and it's amazing how quickly people forget...
