Kate Moss does not, of course, dispense her kisses lightly – but Hosh Ibrahim, a London businessman, had to wait almost a year for his even though he paid £5,000 for the privilege.
He bid for it last August at an auction to raise money for the model’s Mummy Rocks charity which aids Great Ormond Street Hospital and finally it has taken place at a party in Bloomsbury.
“It has taken ages for us to be in the same room and organize it,” Kate says. “I put on loads of red lipstick.” Jamie Hince, her boyfriend, had joshed that she should have “used tongues” for “that kind of money,” but she confined herself to a simple kiss. Ibrahim wasn’t complaining. “She tastes as good as she looks,” he says.
