Supermodel Kate Moss doesn't seem to have given up her cigarette habit, even on the runway for Louis Vuitton and on Britain's national No Smoking Day. It was the first time since 2004 she appeared on a catwalk since retiring from fashion shows. Her figure may not be what it was when she was "discovered" as a 14-year-old at JFK airport in New York. But at 37, she still oozes her signature coolness. Designer Marc Jacobs elevated models in iron-gated lifts, made to look like a French hotel. The show celebrated fetishism with models dressed as chambermaids, bellhops, mistresses or prostitutes - some types of women Jacobs says he frequently sees leaving hotels. There was lace, fur, rubber and PVC on show as well as handcuffs to go along with the kinky theme. Thigh-high stockings and Peter Pan-collared dresses gave way to a hour-glass shaped coats. Naomi Campbell, Amber Valetta and Karolina Kurkova also took to the runway. Afterwards Kurkova talked about her fellow supermodels. SOUNDBITE: Karolina Kurkova, Supermodel, saying (English): "Umm, it was amazing the Louis Vuitton show because it was such a great mix of girls, women, from Kate, Naomi, young girls, myself, Stella. And I think it's always nice when you have a nice mixture of women who are all kinds of different women.... ages, shapes, periods... You know, I think it's really nice. I enjoyed that." The Louis Vuitton show wrapped up on the last day of Paris Fashion Week in what was a tumultuous season which saw the sacking of star designer John Galliano from Christian Dior.
