Salma Hayek vs Kate Moss: which fashion girl looked better at the YSL show?

These are photos of Salma Hayek at the Yves Saint Laurent show in Paris two days ago, on Monday. I’m sorry I’m just getting to them now. I was getting the feeling that many of you were at your limit with Salma and her Goop-tastic personality (she will teach a course in Poverty & Chanel), so I gave you a break yesterday. But these photos were too much to ignore! Salma and her husband, Francois-Henri Pinault, were seated next to Kate Moss and her husband, Jamie Hince, at the YSL show. The body language is amazing!!!

First of all, let’s just get technical with their ages. Kate Moss is 38 years old. Salma just turned 46 years old last month. But if you were just going by the photos, who looks older? Kate, right? You can tell which one is the trophy wife (I can’t get that out of my head now, after you guys mentioned it) and which one is the party girl. You can tell which one takes care of her skin and which one likes to sunbathe in St. Tropez without any sunscreen.

Now, Kate has that particularly model-y ability of extreme photogenic-ness, but even she looks pretty rough in these photos. Part of it is that she’s not as “made up” as Salma – Salma looks like she’s going to a fancy cocktail party. In 1965. Kate looks, as always, modern and like she just rolled out of bed, smoked her first cig of the day, and decided to wander into the YSL show. Which becomes an entirely different conversation – which woman looks more comfortable? Kate! Kate looks like she belongs, like she’s there to see the show and have some fun and maybe have a few glasses of champagne. Salma looks like she’s sitting on a tack.

Maybe that’s why Salma moved and made Francois sit beside Kate for the show? Hahaha. PS… Salma’s emerald ring is AMAZING.

    Kate Moss is SO fugly! However did she become a model? She looks like The Bride Of The Grim Reaper.

    • Minty says:

      For all her cheekbones and posing, Kate gives the same expression in almost every photograph. Not really versatile. She would’ve been better as a stylist.

      I always thought she was overrated and the anti-supermodel. Back in the ’90s, she had a bland personality and was the least articulate of top models when interviewed. The real supermodels (Cindy, Naomi, Christy, Linda, Claudia, Helena) were getting too powerful in the eyes of the fashion industry because they were assertive, commanded high fees, could not be pushed around, were treated by the public like movie stars, and thus received more attention than the designers and the clothes.

      So, after the mid ’90s, the fashion powers deliberately replaced them with Kate and the passive-looking waifs, who were hyped up. The designers promoted younger and younger models they could control. That’s why the supermodel era ended. It’s been downhill ever since. We can thank Kate for the prevalence of today’s size 2, underweight, blank-faced aliens on the catwalk. Victoria’s Secret models come closer to the ’90s archetype, but they’re not considered high fashion.

      Rant over.

      • TG says:

        Oh my god, is that true? There is a conspiracy in everything. Maybe the designers had a point though. I miss the days of Cindy. And in these photos both women look like they have been rode hard and put away wet. (I am sorry, I know that is overused, but I love that phrase)

      • Minty says:

        @TG:

        It may sound farfetched, but I have friends who work in the industry. Models generally have the least power in fashion. They are told how to look, what to wear and not to think. If they don’t conform, they don’t get hired. Many successful models have said that all their employers cared about is that they show up, look good, and shut up. Not a very empowering career if you aren’t Gisele. And, if they had real power, do you think Terry Richardson would still be working?

        I’ve often read comments about how people miss the ’90s models and they ask why that type isn’t around anymore. Supermodels were too popular and bigger than fashion, so they weren’t easily manipulated because they achieved a lot of autonomy. They were eventually shut out. No more healthy, independent women for the next generation of runway stars. Bring on the naive malnourished girls.

        Remember that Kate Moss was made the poster child for heroin chic in 1993, a junkie image denoting loss of control and self-destruction. Interesting that Kate in real life has a long history of drug abuse, yet Cindy, Claudia, and Linda do not. Cindy once said that after the waifs became the in thing, earlier “Amazonian” models had to lose more weight and project a passive, weak image to get work.

        Coco Rocha, an in-demand fashion model said, “I’ll never forget the piece of advice I got from people in the industry when they saw my new body … They said, ‘You need to lose more weight. The look this year is anorexia. We don’t want you to be anorexic but that’s what we want you to look like.”

        The manipulation of impressionable young girls continues.

      • MG says:

        So true!!!!

      • Roxy says:

        I have to disagree, strongly! I believe Gisele, Heidi Klum, Tyra and all the VS super models do represent high fashion & many even design high fashion & jewelry. They all do designer shows as well. They are extremely high-fashion and sought after models. Gisele is the highest paid model ever! A VS model! So, you are way off base here. Wrong-O! Kate is the heroin chic type, boney, not pretty, boyish with bad teeth. Thats not attractive. And you notice WHO her husband is staring at? Yea, Salma! Not Kate. Salma is beautiful. I think he’s gay and jealous. GAY!!-GAY!!!

      • Quinn says:

        The reason models are so thin is because their bodies don’t detract from the clothes. When a plain faced waif walks down a runway, the clothes are what the eye is drawn to. When fuller figured women walk down the runway, people can be distracted by her cleavage, her bum etc not because this looks bad, but because it’s how people are programmed. In know way do I support fashion using unhealthy models, but I do understand why the ideal model is super slim. This is especially so for high fashion which is clothes the average woman wouldn’t wear (does anyone wear that stuff!!??)

      • LAK says:

        @Roxy, sorry you are wrong and @Minty is very right. All those models you’ve mentioned Bar Gisele are strictly commercial – read catalogue models. They couldn’t really cut it in the european/asian high fashion market. Being a VS model makes you commercial but it doesn’t equal high fashion.High fashion is directional, edgy, editorial…..fashion as art, couture etc. It’s never about the mass market although it can be appealing to the mass market. Beauty is not the point of high fashion. This is the arena of kirsten McMenamy or Alek Wek or Nadja Auaman and Kate Moss. 4 models who can never be described as conventionally pretty but whose looks are pretty unique and striking.Gisele is the only model Who made it successfully in both types of markets just like the supermodels of old like Naomi/Linda/christy/Cindy. Gisele looked at the lesson learnt from Cindy’s example and concentrated on commercial modelling exclusively which is why they both made (make) a tonne of money. Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks are like Elle Macpherson. Very commercial, never high Fashion. Commercial calls for a more standard type of beauty. Pretty forgetable after a while because whilst commercial models are pretty in the conventional sense, they are a dime a dozen and pretty interchangeable in their bland beauty.

      • Minty says:

        @Roxy:

        Way off base? I don’t think so. As LAK generously pointed out, there’s a distinction between high fashion modeling and commercial modeling.

        Heidi was never high fashion and made her name in commercials and especially, reality tv. I disagree with LAK’s comment about Tyra, though. Tyra did runway for the top designers. She was in-demand enough that Naomi felt threatened because of the competition. Tyra publicly said she wanted the same kind of career as Cindy, so she focused on commercial work and later ANTM, because she knew high fashion work is temporary if you’re over 25, designers are very fickle, and your career lasts much longer if you can get commercial work. It’s more lucrative, too.

        Cindy was probably the most successful of the ’90s supermodels in terms of being both a runway/editorial model and a commercial model. She was really the first high fashion model to successfully diversify (Pepsi spokesperson, House Of Style on MTV, Playboy, exercise videos, commercials for Cadillac, Visa, Blockbuster, Pizza Hut, etc.)

        Nowadays, it’s rarer for a model to be both high fashion and commercial. Gisele and maybe Doutzen are the exceptions. Victoria’s Secret is employing more couture models in its overblown shows (example: Karlie Kloss) but there’s nothing sexy about seeing starved bodies wearing lingerie. Then again, VS is just as influenced by high fashion as Hollywood, so they’re also buying this myth that a skin and bones body is now the ideal.

        You might want to refrain from using too many exclamation points. It makes your response seem histrionic and the opposite of calm.

        @Quinn:

        Sorry, but the oft-repeated excuse that clothes look better on very skinny models is pure bullsh-t. Some of the models used in haute couture in the ’90s were size 6. If it was all about the clothes, then why do designers send their models out on the catwalk TOPLESS or wearing outrageous makeup? Those things sure distract from the clothing.

        Fashion models have always been slim, but they also had feminine curves. That slender but still healthy look was the dominant image since the ’70s. It noticeably changed by the mid ’90s. Many people at that time criticized Kate for being too skinny (and she was), especially in comparison to the other top models of the day. It’s only after years and years of designers pushing this anorexic look that it finally becomes acceptable and “the norm” for many people.

        That kind of thinking has affected male fashion models now. The newer ones they hire are built like 13-year-old boys and those who actually have some muscles are told they need to lose them. It’s interesting to note that eating disorders are becoming more common among male models as well. Twisted.

        Fashion designers have become lazy. They don’t want to expend effort and more material designing clothes for women who have curves. I’m not talking fat, I’m talking about actual breasts and butts. Also, many times on Project Runway, I’d see these aspiring designers bitch and moan when they had to design outfits for models who weren’t a size 2. But they weren’t “plus-sized” models either. Clearly, these people don’t have enough design skills, which is why they could only handle bodies that were flat and straight up-and-down. Contours are too much of a challenge for amateurs, apparently. And this is supposed to be a contest to find the next great designer?

        How is this a good way to sell swimsuits?

        I’m distracted by this model’s unhealthy body to ever focus on her outfit:
        http://www.examiner.com/images/blog/EXID20836/images/ex_skinny_model.jpg

        Compare those pics with this video of ’90s supermodels in a Thierry Mugler show. Note how they are slender and curvy, not fat and certainly not malnourished. I also like that they were allowed to have fun:

      • Bluedog says:

        Minty, that second image you linked is photoshopped. For one thing, that’s Gisele’s face plainly photoshopped on another person’s body. Badly ‘shopped, too, I might add. I doubt those protuding ribs are real, either.

      • Minty says:

        Bluedog, on second inspection, I think you’re right. But there are skeletal bodies on the fashion catwalk, so the photoshopped pic isn’t that farfetched. Some examples:

    • Melissa says:

      I’ve always felt the same about her. Not only is she not pretty, but she’s actually homely looking.

      • Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

        lol I knew someone would post that video.
        She’s a kid there….a kid!
        it says a lot when as a society we uplift kids as sexy and have them be the standard beauty.
        Models start at the age of 14 (!!).

        No wonder women feel like they aren’t beautiful or pretty enough, they compare themselves to little girls, it’s sick.

    • carol says:

      Amen. omg. Wth? Uglee fuglee

  2. Nev says:

    Yes Kate!!!

    • Honey Poo Poo formally known as beyonce's bump says:

      when it comes to fashion ICONS….Kate and Shalma should NOT be mentioned in the same sentence. How insulting (to Kate) I would not even dignify this question with a response…smh

      • lrm says:

        although i agree with the assessment re’ heroin chic/anorexia’ and the modelling industry, I do not think kate is homely. she doesn’t look her best here, but she knows style and fashion, and when younger, johnny depp days, etc, she was gorgeous in an ethereal way.
        I’m not saying she’s intellectually stimulating, nor comparing her to the supermodel era, just that she is a natural beauty and a style ‘icon’ even though i hate that term…but IMO, she is. she knows how to put together and wear an outfit, that’s for sure.

        Also, I don’t think we can ‘blame’ the anorexia era of models on ‘kate’. We can BLAME the industry who determined that the super models were getting too powerful and decided to create a weak, self destructive model prototype.

        Just saying, using the logic from the posts about this topic, it would not be Kate who promoted this; it would be her bosses.

        Anyway, I am not a kate fan,although this post sounds like it.

        I really don’t follow her or any models these days-
        just don’t think she is ugly, by far….
        she has a great look for still pics, IMO.
        though i don’t think she looks comfortable here-i think she looks like she did not want to leave her house-very vulnerable, actually.

      • Minty says:

        @lrm:

        I assume you are responding to me. I never thought Kate in her prime was ugly, just overrated as a beauty. She tends to give the same “face” in photographs, too. I like models who excel at conveying different emotions, like Linda and Shalom Harlow. I also implied Kate would make a good stylist in another post.

        When she started modelling, she was naturally very skinny. I do believe curvier models had to starve themselves to fit the image she represented by the mid ’90s. As I previously wrote, models don’t have the control. It’s the designers/editors/photographers who determined that waifs and anorexics were “in”, and Kate embodied the look they were promoting, so they chose her as the newest symbol, the anti-supermodel. The supermodel look (slim, but curvy/athletic) had been the dominant type since the mid ’70s.

        She wasn’t personally responsible and I never said she was. I think I clearly stressed that the power players, not the models, are accountable for the sea change and the distorted ideal so common today.

  3. DD says:

    WTF is wrong with Salma’s lips? She looks ridiculous.

  4. Eleonor says:

    I’ll take Kate everyday, Salma can go on on her trophy-wife routine made of Chanel dresses,courtesy of her husband of course.
    The side-eye of Kate’s husband is AMAZING, I’ll have the same “bitch please” expression.

    • searching4grace says:

      Ha! I thought the EXACT same thing. I don’t think I’d ever want to get photographed giving that look to someone. It could be used as evidence against me when they turn up missing. :) I didn’t notice her lips…I couldn’t get past the two wispy hairs across her forehead escaping from her bangs. They made me twitch all the way down the pictures. Ugh.

  5. Amelia says:

    Is Kate wearing Stella McC?

  6. carrie says:

    Salma looks bitchy on every pic as if she wanted to contain her anger

  7. LAK says:

    Kate moss rules! Give me a hard working, hard partying, unpretentious who doesn’t care what i think and lives her life any day. Trophy WAGS are exhausting, unnecessarily pretentious, compete with other women for fugly atm men.

    Plus I thoroughly enjoy that kate has a trophy HAB even if he’s not conventionally handsome.

    • Bengalcat2000 says:

      ITA! Kate Moss is the best model of her generation. I love that she does her own thing & has that “don’t give a f*ck what you think” attitude. I’d much rather hang w/Kate than Salma. And her new husband’s band is amazing!

    • Minty says:

      Saying he’s not conventionally handsome is putting it mildly. The man is unattractive. Kate is just as superficial as trophy WAGs. She’s the cliche of the fashion model who dates high profile men (actors, musicians), with a temporary detour when she dated a magazine editor.

    • Rhea says:

      Fugly atm men—-> LOL. Love it! To be fair Kate belongs there because fashion IS her world. Still, Kate for the winner! :)

    • LadyAnne says:

      + 2 !

    • bluhare says:

      Agree. Plus Kate looks like she’s got no makeup on at all.

    • geekychick says:

      You said it better than I did few comments down!

    • Dizzy says:

      Love the way Kate looks but she’s starting to pay for all the fun she’s had: smoking,drinking, drugs, sun and most of all Pete Doherty! Salma has darker skin which ages well.

    • Mazunte says:

      + 1. Kate is not a conventional beauty but she is so different and unique. I love her sort of boyish look and ALL HER OUTFITS. She has an amazing sense of style (well, she has money too, but a lot of people with money have horrible taste).
      Besides, her photos and videos and beautiful. I mean… she is not like stunning Helena Christensen or Christy Turlington (the prettiest models ever in my opinion) but nobody has Cate’s uniqueness.

  8. Charlotte says:

    Kate is not aging well

    • Minty says:

      Partying like you’re still in college will do that to you.

      Let’s see…Salma is 48 and Kate is 36, yet Kate looks much older. Whatever Salma is doing, she’s doing it right and I don’t even like her.

      • Lucy says:

        Kate is 38.

      • Minty says:

        @Lucy:

        Oops, you’re right. I transposed numbers. Salma is 46 and Kate is 38.

      • lrm says:

        i don’t think kate looks ‘much older’ than salma-they look the same age. kate looks tired/exhausted. anyway, salma is gorgeous, but looks a bit like a stuffed sausage next to kate. kate is fashion, she does not try hard for it; it’s effortless for her, and like others said, she doesn’t give a sh*t. she just does her thing.
        I don’t think she does the ‘trophy wife’ thing either-she’s loaded and prob makes more than all of her celebrity boyfriends/husbands put togehter [except for Depp, but that was before he went Disney and became a gazillionaire].

      • lrm says:

        also, salma is 46. so i think the numbers just got transposed on the two. they are 8 years apart.

      • Minty says:

        Sorry, but are you really reading what I wrote? I already said that I transposed the numbers and corrected the ages accordingly. Likewise, I stated that the designers, etc., were the ones who promoted the heroin chic and anorexic looks, not Kate and other models. She’s just the model they hired because she fit what they were looking for at the time. All the up-and-coming models had to fall in line with those looks (by dieting/starving) if they wanted to continue working. The supermodels had already established themselves and branched out into non-fashion jobs, so the pressure to conform was not as great, though it did exist.

        Salma and Kate do not look the same age. Even without makeup, Salma can pass for 36. Kate may be tired here, but I’ve seen her non-makeup paparazzi pics and she looks rough. She looks older than her age. Looking effortless actually requires effort. Don’t believe that she doesn’t carefully choose what she’ll wear out in public, considering that she works in an industry obsessed with surface image. I think she’s good at it, but a strong fashion style doesn’t wholly compensate for looking older than your years.

      • Roxy says:

        It wouldn’t hurt Kate to wash her greasy, stringy hair on occasion, either! & She always looks like that in pictures because her teeth are *f’d! All her money and never fixed that mess? Tsk-tsk! And no make-up? why??? She looks awful, she’s still thin, thats kinda all she’s got. Besides a gay husband.

  9. Mel says:

    I have never understood why anyone ever found Kate Moss attractive. But thats just my opinion.
    Selma wins this round hands down, despite wearing Molly Ringwald’s old lipstick.

  10. Len says:

    Kate ofcourse. Love her. Sitting front row without make-up, just looking natural en pretty.

  11. Cathy says:

    Kate? It looks like she didn’t even wash her scraggly hair. She also looks so flat faced without any makeup. Some women are beautiful naturally and can pull of a natural look, not Kate. There is a reason she makes her living WEARING A FACE FULL OF MAKEUP. I’m definitely TeamSelma.

  12. Charlotte says:

    Kate is giving me Anna Wintour vibes.

  13. Hautie says:

    Sorry… I love Salma.

    And I like that she went all out with her clothes. It is Fashion Week! In Paris! This is the time you bring out your best.

    I am TIRED of trashy looking females roaming around. Wearing their ratty flip flops. :) (I love that Uncle Karl hates them too!) Geez, have some pride in your appearance.

    Now with that tiny rant over.

    I will mention this.

    That no one…. and this includes the very beautiful Salma… can pull of wearing frosted lilac-pinky lip stick.

    It just makes you look like a corpse.

    • Roxy says:

      You apologize, right off the bat. Why? Do not be sorry for saying what you believe in. Never! If it’s your truth, thats what it is. Never apologize!

  14. pepi says:

    Team Kate here, love that woman!!!, she´s the coolest, I want to be her friend!!!!

  15. Debra says:

    Hilarious and no comparision.
    Team Hayek.

  16. Hmmm says:

    Bitchface Selma go home – Kate all the way

  17. SpaceDonkey says:

    Team Kate! Coolest girl. Though without the photoshopping and glamour make-up looks a little like Tilda Swinton

  18. Evadstructn says:

    Salma is leaning towards Kate, like she wants some of Kate’s effortless cool to rub off on her. Kate looks like she couldn’t care less. Salma reeks of try.

  19. LadyAnne says:

    That lilac duckface is ridiculous.

  20. serena says:

    Even if she’s kind of pissing me off lately, Selma win this one.

    For god’s sake Kate, put on some make-up!

  21. Memory30 says:

    It’s amazing to me with this celebrities if you taste sucks all the money in the world don’t mean a thing ;) right Salma?!!

  22. effy says:

    Salma anyday anytime!

  23. Kellie says:

    Kate looks better, without a doubt. Any female that can spend the better part of her life partying, drinking,drugging, chain smoking and still looks good- deserves a medal.

    Salma will always be attractive but she tries too hard and I dont understand how she has access to some of the most beautiful and expensive clothes in the world, and still looks budget.

    • Minty says:

      Kate dresses better, but then she had the benefit of working with the most creative and talented people in the fashion industry. Of course she learned things.

      Kate looks older than her age. There are plenty of candid, unPhotoshopped pics that show how harsh and haggard she is without makeup. All that drugging and excess partying finally caught up with her. Salma looks way better facewise and she’s 8 years older. However, that frosted pink lipstick is hideous.

      • Aussie girl says:

        Kate knows fashion, Selma looks desperate. I’m not saying she doesn’t look proper fit for her age, she does. But I’m a sucker for Kate. Who cares how much make up she has on. Should she be bloated & sprayed tanned like lohan?

  24. Lucy says:

    They’re both weird, but Kate looks AWFUL for her age. She looks 10 years older than Salma rather than 8 years younger…eek!

  25. Lindsey says:

    I’d have the same expression if I had to sit next to a bland former (?) coke whore >_>

  26. D1 says:

    Salma Hayek is a trophy wife? This is the first time I’ve heard that expression directed at a professionally accomplished, socially powerful, independently wealthy career woman in her 40′s who married a man only 4 years older than her.

    I’m guessing that in this context trophy wife really just means, “sexist term I will use to put down this bitch I don’t like”. Because otherwise people who would dismiss Hayek as a trophy wife must have contempt for a lot of women – after all, “power couples” like Salma & her husband are rare and most male celebrities marry way down in wealth, power, and age.

    • seer says:

      Bravissima! Couldn’t have said it better. She has money of her own. Is she a trophy wife because he has more than her? Not very many people have as much as him. Is Julia Louis Dreyfus’ husband a trophy husband because whe’s set to inherit billions? Don’t hate on her cause she’s got it all. Plus I’m digging her “”ladies who lunch” style. She’s looking good for her age. Hell she’s looking good for any age. Skinny just doesn’t age well I guess.

    • bluecalling says:

      +100000000

    • Giselle says:

      I agree–the contempt for Salma is consistent and laid on very thick. I agree with most though… that lipstick? No.

      D1,
      EXCELENT POST!
      +1,2,3,4,5….

  27. JMH says:

    I literally LOLed at the idea of Salma Hayek as a fashion girl!!

    Her husband may own almost every high fashion label in the world, but she will never be seen as a fashion icon. At least not these days. She’s too try-hard, and her style is actually quite bland and predictable.

  28. babythastarsshinebrite says:

    Kate, always.

  29. Dee Cee says:

    Kate really can’t compete with healthy and pretty.. but then being that is not what made her rich and famous.

  30. Melissa says:

    Salma would look much better if she chose a different lipstick and didn’t have her hair pulled back so tight. But she is a beautiful (although annoying) woman. I’ve always found Kate Moss to be unattractive.

    • Loira says:

      I think that she tends to wear those fugly platform shoes and higher do’s because she probably feels too short. She looks tense here.
      And in the first pics she is fighting her skirt trying not to show her undies. Damn photographs, but that what she has to do being that she is in the first row.

  31. Paloma says:

    Kate Moss couldn’t be bothered with putting on makeup.

  32. ladybert62 says:

    Ms. Moss is not aging well. Ms. Selma looks better than Ms. Moss. But they both look like bitches.

    I cant even begin to describe both husbands.

    And what is up that look that Mr. Moss is giving Mr. Selma? Yikes!

  33. ruby says:

    I don’t think you can compare, Salma is wearing a facefull of makeup (ugh that horrible colour of lipstick) and Kate has almost nothing on. Of course Salma is going to look better. Applying makeup in the celeb world is an art and it does make a world of difference.

    For the record, look up some pictures of Salma makeup free. She’s not that pretty without all the paint, trust me.

    • lrm says:

      wow that is dramatic! i mean, salma is not ugly, with or without makeup or frosted lilac lipstick-lol-but she’s not a ‘great beauty’ in those candids….she is gorgeous made up however…

      • Missykitten says:

        umm yes she is

        if you can’t tell the difference between beauty and face paint then that’s sad for you.

        this whole “women should wear makeup all the time or they’re ugly” schtick is wearing thin. You’re just not used to seeing women without makeup, doesn’t mean we are all ugly.

        I think Kate looks beautiful and Salma looks beautiful. For me Kate wins though because she also looks comfortable. Beauty is a combination of things, but one of those is how you hold yourself, confidence.

        Missykitten you missed my point. Maybe I wasn’t being clear enough. My point is :

        Both these women are fairly good looking, but not extraordinarily so. Well applied makeup is what makes them so beautiful and so superior in looks to all the rest of us.

        My point here is the post is comparing a very made up woman to an almost barefaced one. Of course the made up one will come off with the upper hand, no surprise there, but I think it’s not a fair comparison. Compare them both barefaced, or both made up, and then we can talk. That was why I posted a few pictures of Salma without makeup, to give a fair comparison.

        I absolutely do not believe women should wear make up all the time ! In fact I never ever wear any, for various reasons, and neither do most people in my family and a large number of my friends, so actually I am used to seing people without makeup a lot more than people with makeup, and I hope it stays that way. I do not believe people should feel forced to paint their faces in order to feel beautiful. However it is a sad fact that well applied makeup does improve most people’s appearances. I just hope it doesn’t become something that is expected of everyone because I couldn’t conform.

        At the end of the day, I do admire the person who can look stunning naturally more than the person who looks stunning with the aid of a ton of makeup. Which is why Kate also wins here for me. Even though there is something seriously off with her nose, that nose operation didn’t fix everything !

    Kate and salmas dresses are both fug.

    I love Moss, and I’d rather be a person who knows what she loves, does what she loves, enjoys it-and loves herself with a few wrinkles more! Much better than being a trophy wife of the worst sperm donor EVER.

    Well actually the real difference about their skin is more about….

    Salma “takes” care of it with the Dr Sebbagh (same as sharon stone, and very famous for his ‘subtle and natural’ touch) while Kate is REALLY ageing naturally…

    To me there is not even a conteste: kate hands down, she is way cooler and effortless while salma has put a cauliflower on her ‘maintained’ face!

    I find Kate far more attractive. Fabulous bone structure. Salma looks like an overly made-up old lady. Her dress is hideous.

  39. benno says:

    as Kate gets older, she’s starting to look more French. Less makeup, undone hair. She may look “rough” next to someone wearing enough makeup to photograph beautifully, but I think she looks great. And I’m not a huge Kate Moss fan.

    Salma looks prettier and younger and she is actually older than Kate, I’m sorry but Kate Mess doesn’t do it for me she looks like the gollum

    I don’t care who you are Kate Moss – women your age should not wear skirts that short!

  42. skuddles says:

    Moss is starting to look pretty rough, but no surprise I guess when you consider she’s snorted, injected, inhaled, and drank half the world in her lifetime.

    Kate Forever. But wtf is going on with Hince’s hair? Talk about try hard.

  44. Mara says:

    Salma have a really beautiful face and so young looking for her age but Kate is iconic and a very photogenic model .

  45. Grace says:

    Salma’s face on Kate’s body for the win.

  46. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    They are BOTH made up. Google both of them without make-up. Salma looks bad, but not old. Kate looks both bad and old. Make-up does wonders for a woman.

    Really, it’s amazing how photoshopped everyone is these days. When we actually see un-photoshopped pics like these, we think “she’s not wearing make-up, that’s what it is.” Wrong. Kate IS wearing make-up. That’s the best make-up can do for her. They way we’re used to seeing her is not make-up, it’s photoshop.

    And don’t get me started on the husbands. All the make-up in the world wouldn’t help those two.

    • Loira says:

      The nicest newest foundations give a glowy even skin, and they are light enough to pass as if you are hardly wearing make up, as they are not tich and have light coverage, but they look great on. Kate is clearly at least wearing foundation, concealer, blush, mascara and highlighter for the inner corners of her eyes.

  47. Fudge you, I'm going to Guam! says:

    Why must you compare and pit two women against each other?!
    They are both beautiful in different ways.

  48. Emily says:

    Kate anytime. Salma reeks of try hard and that lipstick is hurting my eyes. Kate might look a little rough here, but she always looks stylish and individual, and like she’d be fun to hang out with.

  49. oivey says:

    I used to like Salma. Now? Not so much. Out of touch, me thinks. Also, wtf is with the pale pinky purple duck face?

    I can’t believe how critical people are. Kate has fair skin which is far more affected by the sun. Not her fault. I am sure she is wearing some makeup. I think she looks fine. Everyone ages differently, it is the genes. The idea that if you just use the right products/eat enough salmon and berries/exercise you will look 10 years younger is crap. It is called genes.
