If we read one more thing about Kate Moss’s clothing line for Topshop, which launches this week, we’re going to be sicker than Pete Doherty after a long night at the Groucho Club. Fortunately for the fashion-weary, starting this Thursday at Mary Boone Gallery, British artist Marc Quinn will be showing his sculptures of Moss in a series of yoga poses — and in a few works, she’s wearing nothing at all. Quinn, famous for molding a self-portrait in frozen blood, has said that his work is about “an image, and the way that image is twisted and sculpted by our collective desire.” We’re especially fond of the one that shows Moss’s emaciated rib cage contorted into the lotus position. —Karen Rosenberg
