Kate Moss’ Rimmel contract is being reviewed again, if the rumours are true, because the beauty brand is reportedly looking for a younger face.
The face of Rimmel since 2001, the partnership has weathered a few bouts of controversy during Mossâ€™ drug allegations in 2005, with rumours that Rimmel wanted to replace Moss because she was too old in January 2007, and late last year when there were allegations that Moss’s lashes were computer-enhanced in an advertisement for Rimmel’s MagnifEyes mascara.
Rumoured replacement faces (who are all younger than Moss) are TV presenter Alexa Chung, Bond girl Gemma Arterton, as well as Lily Cole, Daisy Lowe and British model of the moment, Agyness Deyn
“She’s (Moss) been amazing for the brand, but they’ve wanted a fresh face, ” a source told The Mirror. “Alexa is one of the hottest faces out there. Not only is she beautiful, she’s savvy, sexy and has bagloads of attitude. ”
But Rimmel were quick to dispel the rumours.
“Kate remains the face of Rimmel London and will continue to appear in campaigns for the foreseeable future, ” sauid Emmanuelle Bonte of Rimmel. “Rimmel London has no plans to replace Kate. We are very happy with the collaboration.”
Even if the rumours aren’t true, Moss’ contract is set to expire at the end of this year.
