34 Kate Moss Champagne Coupe

News: a London restaurant has created a Champagne coupe from a mould of British model Kate Moss' breast.

To celebrate Kate Moss' 40th birthday and 25 years in the fashion industry, Mayfair's 34 Restaurant worked with British artist Jane McAdam Freud to create a mould from the model's left breast that was used to shape the bowl of the glass.

The 34 Kate Moss Coupe features an elongated slender stem and a bowl decorated with an Art Deco-influenced geometric pattern. Moss' signature is engraved on the base.

Popular mythology surrounding the design of the first Champagne coupe – formally known as a Bol Sein – dates it back to the 18th century court of Versailles where it was supposedly shaped around the left breast of French queen Marie Antoinette, although historians suggest it actually pre-dates this period by 100 years.

"I was excited to participate in this project – what an honour to be alongside Marie Antoinette – she was a very intriguing and mischievous character," said Moss in a statement.

"Champagne is always associated with celebration and happy occasions and I had fun creating this beautiful coupe."

The coupe will be launched by Moss during a lunch at 34's Emin Room, where she celebrated her 40th birthday earlier this year.

Patrons who order Champagne at 34 and sister London establishments The Ivy, Daphne's, Scott's and The Club at The Ivy, will be able to drink from the glass from 9 October.

    What? Errrm, why?

    OK then, now I’m going to use my breast to shape an earthen pot.

      The original Champagne coupe is fabled to be modelled on Marie Antoinette’s breast in the late 18th century – as arguably THE icon of late 20th and early 21st century fashion, and who has undoubtedly drunk her fair share of champagne in her time, Kate Moss has provided a modern update on the design. Or, it’s just a shameless marketing ploy for big wigs; to smile as they titillatingly raise a glass to their lips…

    Why not use a boys’ body? Same shape!

  • Kris

    I’d raise a glass to that.

    Whose left testicle did they mould for the shot glasses?

    • eidamm

      That’s actually a great idea. A whole ‘body’ series could be done. Clenched fist at the end of an arm for a beer glass. A nose for a tea cup. etc.

    I’ve heard Jordan is doing a similar line for a builder’s bucket.

  • DL

    At least you could say you have had Kate Moss’s breast in your mouth.

    Disappointed not to see some illustrative shots of the mould-making process.

    My one dream in life has always been to sip fine wine from Kate Moss’s left breast…. this project brings the dream one step closer to reality. Truly mind-blowing.

    Now, which famous celeb’s huge anatomy can I can use for my phallic-shaped glass?

  • Kate’smate

    Boob down, bottoms up.

  • Rae Claire

    First time I have seen Marie Antoinette described as “mischievous.” Naughty girls rule!

    Let’s call Pamela Anderson and make a soup kettle.

    Rack city, rack, rack city….

  • Fritz

    And there’s also a Champagne flute.

    Great idea. I am going to use my tackle to make a double egg cup holder and toast soldiers pot! Might put me off my breakfast.

  • mlk

    Why is it left breast, what’s wrong with right?

  • EFS

    They either taped that boob or hung her vertically from the ceiling…

  • bonsaiman

    The sillyness of the whole thing… It is amazing grownup entrepreneurs considered such a lame concept really worth turning into a real product.

    Not considering the $$$ aspect, I’d be very ashamed to be in Ms. Moss’ golden pants.

    • stumpwhistle

      Don’t you mean you’d LOVE to get into those pants?

  • JayCee

    You’ve seen one boob-shaped champagne glass, you’ve seen ‘em all.

  • strout

    We know what happened to Marie. Could there be similar plans afoot for Kate’s fate? October 16th could be the perfect date.

  • Alberto Segovia

    Where’s the rap guy to riff on this?
