If Kate Moss’s Breasts Are A Champagne Coupe Who Is The Flute Based On?
KATE MOSS’S has had a champagne glass modelled on her left breast. Quaffers at Mayfair’s 34 can purse their lips to the rim of one of British artist Jane McAdam Freud’s cups.
This honour was once extended to another sparkling white woman, the fabled Marie Antoinette.
Moss is delighted:
“I was excited to participate in this project, what an honour to be alongside Marie Antoinette – she was a very intriguing and mischievous character. Champagne is always associated with celebration and happy occasions and I had fun creating this beautiful coupe.”
It makes us wonder if all glasses were at some point modelled on primary sexual characteristics.
Was the Flute fashioned from Napoleon’s romancer? Was the Tulip modelled on the bosom on Louis XVI’s wet nurse? Did the ice bucket star out as a glass for women who’d had enough children and wanted to unwind?
