THE reporters covering Whitewater have given up even trying to explain what it's about. Bill Neely on News at Ten described it as 'a complex land deal that no one understood', and I knew what he meant. I have struggled with Whitewater. I know there is a suggestion that Bill Clinton might have intervened with the state regulators to help Madison Guaranty, the savings and loan firm owned by his Whitewater partner, James McDougal, or to secure improper loans to McDougal's wife, Susan. I am fairly sure Hillary shouldn't have represented Madison Guaranty before a state regulator appointed by Bill. But when I try to comprehend the whole, my brain goes fluffy, like Arkansas cotton.

Sir: I am writing from a city ravaged by lung cancer, as evidenced by the publication last week of a lung cancer bulletin cataloguing the high rate of lung cancer in the city, compared with the rest of the country. It is, therefore, with dismay that I read the Angela Lambert interview entitled 'Kate Moss asks if she can have a fag' (28 September). The association of a large photograph of a supermodel aged 19 smoking a cigarette is exactly the subliminal advertising that the tobacco industry thrives upon.

BLAME Brett Anderson, the umbilically confident (male) lead singer with the pop group Suede, or just blame the warm weather, but be in no doubt that the midriff is the erogenous zone this summer.

Sir: On learning of an anorexic- looking, eroticised child in high- fashion underwear being featured in Vogue's pages, I, of course, rushed out and bought a copy of the magazine to which your writer had drawn attention and which you illustrated in your pages.

AT LEAST the editor of Vogue didn't use advertising- speak to defend her pictures of Kate Moss in her skimpies. Get this from advertising agency da Costa and Co Ltd and its client Ajax on its latest campaign, featuring semi-naked males in the kitchen. The campaign is 'a re-evaluation of our advertising strategy to reflect the changing role of men and women in society.' A flimsy excuse for shameless exploitation of a young model. I wonder what the chairman of Ajax would have said if it were his son. Still, all that scrubbing has done wonders for his muscles.
Fashion: Heven sent route to stardom: The minimodel Kate Moss is now the face of Opium perfume. Marion Hume reports
Thursday 11 February 1993
LITTLE Kate Moss, our 19-year- old, Croydon-born minimodel superstar, has just snared another high-yield deal. Already in receipt of big bucks for an exclusive contract with Calvin Klein - for whom she appears in girlish vests and knickers and little else - she will now have a significant number of francs to add to her bank account, having signed up as the face of the Yves Saint Laurent fragrance Opium.
