British Vogue has reported that a giant "hoarding" (or billboard for those of you who aren't bilingual) plastered with the 15 foot visage of Kate Moss for Mango, fell on four shoppers in the Oxford Circus underground station. Of the ways you would choose to go out, "crushed to death by enlarged super model" gets points for originality and a WTF factor of, like, seven. Fortunately, the shoppers weren't hurt too badly, only one reporting "back injuries." The whole incident sounds pretty tame, actually, which makes us wonder: Is Moss is getting soft on us? She used to be so dangerous.
