Life and Style Kate Moss at the Louis Vuitton autumn/winter 2011 show in Paris

Kate Moss turns 40 today, and is still treading the boards for designers from A(lexander McQueen) to Z. Well, to Louis Vuitton, at least. Alexander Fury celebrates the life and career of the fashion’s longest-lasting catwalker.

Students of art `have no chance of getting jobs'

THOUSANDS OF students studying art and design, two of Britain's most popular and fastest-growing subjects, have no hope of getting jobs in their fields, the head of a leading art college said yesterday.

Television: MacIntyre unbesmirched

In Renaissance (BBC2), the art critic Andrew Graham-Dixon insisted that "the greatest intellectual and artistic achievement of the last 2,000 years" was the Renaissance, which was one in the eye for those who supposed it to be The Magic Roundabout. Renaissance is a six-part series, an eloquent one-man riposte to the accusation that television is relentlessly dumbing down. Graham-Dixon blasts his own intellect at us with both barrels. But he is easy on the eye, has written a persuasive script, and certainly cannot be blamed for the fact that the art-history lectures I sporadically attended at university took place just after lunch, with the regrettable result that I am programmed to nod off the instant someone says "Adoration of the Magi". I tried hard to stay awake during Renaissance, I really did. And I did at least catch a heavy-lidded glimpse of Botticelli's magnificent Venus, the modern incarnation of whom, I suppose, is Kate Moss, dressed by Galliano.
