Kate Moss: The Talent of Tomorrow

SEEN was intrigued to hear that supermodel Kate Moss has opened her own agency. Eschewing the usual ‘pretty faces’, Moss has declared that she’s on the lookout for real talent: people who can model, act, sing and dance. Her first female model is Elfie Reigate, Moss’s bridesmaid and daughter of Rosemary Ferguson, an old friend of the supermodel for years. Elfie joins male model Louis Baines, a Topman star.

SEEN was intrigued to hear that supermodel Kate Moss has opened her own agency. Eschewing the usual ‘pretty faces’, Moss has declared that she’s on the lookout for real talent: people who can model, act, sing and dance. Her first female model is Elfie Reigate, Moss’s bridesmaid and daughter of Rosemary Ferguson, an old friend of the supermodel for years. Elfie joins male model Louis Baines, a Topman star.

Somewhere Over the Reignbow: LGBT Rights Protected in Queen’s Speech

With all the recent sombre news, coupled with the feeling that communities in cities are experiencing particular oppression, it is indeed heartening to hear the following words in the Queen’s speech: “My government will make further progress to tackle the gender pay gap and discrimination against people on the basis of their race, faith, gender, …

Oh to be at Camino Bankside Now that Summer is Here

With temperatures set to soar as though it was 1976 (SEEN remembers sweltering through that), your best bet is to get anywhere by the river Thames, where the views are gobsmacking, and the food is fabulous. Like last year, London is awash with marvellous gins – and let’s remind ourselves, if you drink gin you are partaking in a resonant and historical pastime that is inextricably linked to London’s rich, vibrant and – dare we say it – dark past.

Kieren Hughes: Urban Dreamscape

SEEN was instantly captivated by the work of the Cheltenham-born artist Kieren Hughes recently. His unsettling images seem born of modern-day anxieties about urban living, as in Chicago Fever Dream or the privileges accrued by a rich elite, as in The Last Privilege of an Oil Man.
