Mossy at The LifeCo in happier times
Celebs – they’re just like us! Or rather, some of them are. Others trash their hotel rooms or get so affected by a stay that they end up being seen to by the police.
While Brad and Angelina flew economy to the French Riviera, Kate Moss and Tom Hanks’ son have flown the flag for celebs behaving badly.

Zening, in Cyprus
You know a detox break is going to be too grueling for ordinary mortals when it sends a supermodel running for the hills before their stay is up; and by all accounts, that’s what happened when Kate Moss recently visited the LifeCo in Turkey (she apparently turned up drunk at Bodrum airport and jumped straight on an EasyJet flight back to London).
For once, there’s a brilliant rundown of exactly what to expect from the LifeCo in the Daily Mail (no, we can’t believe we said that either).
But if tongue scraping, a cryosauna (don’t ask) and The Angel (definitely don’t ask) seem a bit too intense, fear not. Here are four of our favorite detox places in Europe:
Poses like these might be tough for a while...
Last time we checked in on Paris' classic The Ritz, it was with our own Josh Flagg, who had more than a few things (and none of them good) to say about the hotel's outdated, unsympathetic attitude towards dress code.
This week, clothes weren't the issue for supermodel Kate Moss (when has she ever looked bad anyway?), who had to cut her stay at the Ritz short because of a bizarre injury. According to an article in the Daily Mail, Kate woke up with no feeling in her right arm and hand, a pretty scary situation for anyone, and after several visits with doctors there, learned that her arm had become temporarily paralyzed due to an ulnar nerve entrapment. Ouch!
A month after opening its doors (finally) to guests, the W London held its grand opening party last night attended by the likes of Kate Moss, Roger Daltrey, Mick Jones, Jade Jagger, Alexa Chung, Boy George and a bunch of only famous in Britain people.
The theme of the opening party was to bring together the four corners of London under one roof. North London was represented by the "band" The Ws which featured Roger Daltrey on Vocals (The Who), Mick Jones on Vocals and Guitar (The Clash), Jay Mehler on Guitar (Kasabian) and Zak Starkey on Drums (Oasis/ The Who).
That's Kate Moss introducing the band whose performance benefited the W London’s charity of choice The Elton John Aids Foundation. Later, it fashion girl Alexa Chung and Nick Grimshaw DJed in the hotel's WYLD nightclub until the morning hours.
Last time Kate visited the Ritz Paris, last Fashion Week. She should be a little less put together for her bachelorette.
As one of the most fashionable women in the world, Kate Moss must be under a lot of strain for her wedding. Not because of the dress (although we rather hope she’ll design it herself rather than get John Galliano to do it, but for the bachelorette do which, for an unreformed party girl, will have to be epic.
And it sounds like she won’t let us down. According to 3am, she’s off to Paris – to the Ritz, no less – where she’ll hopefully scandalize the establishment with a 1930s cabaret/burlesque themed party.
According to a “friend” there will be burlesque dancers in cages, a grand piano for Kate to croon at her guests on, and, most importantly, cigarettes, as there’s no pesky smoking ban in Paris.
Paparazzi caught her strolling out of the hotel yesterday in a jeggings, a striped shirt and a cropped red cardigan that nearly matches the hotel's carpeting perfectly. Also note the hotel staffer watching over her departure anxiously.
The Ritz, located by the Place Vendôme, usually requires supermodel budgets to stay here as rooms start around $800 a night. However, sales on rooms do happen on such sites like Leading Hotels of the World which had the Ritz for less last fall. But we're guessing Ms. Moss doesn't do her own hotel budget hunting.
Surely not to be outdone by the Raleigh Hotel which is hosting Miami's Swimwear Fashion Week, The Standard Miami was the setting for a W Magazine photo shoot entitled "Summer Camp" by Bruce Weber featuring hot designers and models like Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Lara Stone.
The Standard website is even promoting the photo shoot where the girls roll around on Standard beds, lounge on a stack of pool chairs, parade around half-naked near a massage table, and other very interesting poses.
Let's just say there's a lot of (artistic) boobies and butt...you know, just your average summer camp experience.

The Atlanta blog, Around Midtown, has posted some pics of the conversion of the W Hotel Midtown from a Sheraton on their site and this is what the new W will look like. What's going on there? Well Around Midtown breaks it down:
Now construction is finally at the point where you can see some of their plans unfolding, which include painting the predominantly cream building a slate color, accented by a linear black effect up the building. The retaining walls at the ground level are being covered with a slate.
While anything is better than a fugly Sheraton, we have a feeling the folks in Hotlanta might get sick of W Hotels soon. Aside from this one and the current W Atlanta Perimeter, there are Ws set for downtown and BuckHead. Maybe they should just call it Watlanta. Ok, bad joke, we know.

Somehow someway the world's biggest living druggie, Pete Doherty, is not in jail or rehab. And somehow someway the once-beautiful Kate Moss thinks he's attractive.
Most recently, the mismatched duo have been staying in a 1,500 pound-a-night suite at the Claridge's Hotel in London for a few days reconciling and probably doing some other stuff. This is London writes:
Doherty, 28, was last night pictured returning to the hotel after walking free from court on a technicality following a police blunder.
He had faced jail for breaching bail conditions. But because officers didn't bring him to court within 24 hours of his arrest, magistrates were forced to let him go.
There was no sign of Miss Moss coming or going from the hotel yesterday but sources said the pair had been meticulous about leaving and arriving separately.
They've also been having some boisterous room parties as hotel security ejected some of their friends once the room occupancy was exceeded.
God we feel sorry for the Claridge's housekeeping staff.

If you're into celeb sightings, don't let them fool you like Kate Moss tried to do. At the re-launch of the newly renovated May Fair Hotel in London Kate put on a Manchester accent pretending to be a lookalike to avoid attention:
The Croydon-born supermodel tried to trick guests, but when she was approached she insisted she was a Mancunian lookalike.
"People genuinely thought she was someone from Manchester who happened to look like Kate Moss," The Sun quoted a partygoer, as saying.
Nice try Kate but you wouldn't fool us. Londoner accent or Manchester, there just aren't many people that look like you. Besides this was the Mayfair, they only deal with the real celebs.
"Frenchmans Lookout is the most beautiful place I have every stayed in the Caribbean. The décor, the views and the staff were simply amazing," so says Kate Moss about the tony Tortola hideaway that has reopened just in time to host freshly rehabbed supermodels and their drug addled rock star boyfriends looking for a magical place to detox.
Frenchmans Lookout in the British Virgin Islands is a villa with nearly a 360-degree vista of one of nature's finest displays fanning out over the Francis Drake Channel from unspoiled Virgin Gorda to St. John.

Kate Moss is slowly emerging as 2006's favorite hotel guest. First she has some crazy 15-hour birthday party at Claridge's in London, then she snogs Jack Osborne at the Roosevelt, and now she lets one of her lady friends peek out of her bathing suit at the Delano Hotel in Miami.
According to Scene in the Tropics Moss checked into the hotel with her mother and daughter a few days ago for a photo shoot, natch. While going topless ain't nothing new at the Delano, photogs were reported to be stalking Moss from all angles of the hotel. So it's no wonder her ta-ta couldn't get some privacy.
