Kate Moss lipstick portrait sold

Kate Moss self-portrait sells for whopping £33,600

She has already added fashion designer and perfumer to her bulging CV, but could Kate Moss now be adding artist?

A self-portrait by the supermodel sold this weekend in London for £33,600 to a private buyer, after it failed to meet a reserve of £40,000 at auction.

The piece was created by Moss with red lipstick while she was dating Pete Doherty, and features her lip prints.

The canvas is also daubed with Doherty’s bloodstains, and his writing, which reads ‘Who needs blood when you’ve got lipstick?’

Doherty sold the piece to an anonymous seller, who then placed it up for auction.

The auction also featured a self-portrait by the Babyshambles singer of himself. The piece was expected to sell for £10,000, but remained unsold.
