Actress Tilda Swinton furthers her rapport with Pringle of Scotland by appearing in the brand's Fall 11 campaign. The new pics were shot at the Glasgow School of Art by Walter Pfeiffer. (Pringle of Scotland recently went under some major changes, 'member? Alistair Carr of Balenciaga replaced Clare Waight as the design director? Right.) For those wondering if Tilda is a native Scot, the answer is non—she was actually born in London.

Fascinating Kate Moss revelations from Paris! In a rare interview with The Telegraph while promoting her new gig as the face of Mango, we learn more details about the mysterious world of our beloved Brit. 

1. She doesn't consider herself an icon. "Liz Taylor's an icon. I'm just normal. A dame's for old women like Margaret Thatcher, I'm too young - I'd prefer to be a baroness. I'd like to be Lady Kate. But I'm happy just as I am." 

2. She has regrets. "I wasn't in (George Michael's) 'Freedom' video... I just missed it. That would have been amazing."

3. Will Naomi Campbell be a bridesmaid when Kate marries Kills frontman Jamie Hince? "Now that would be telling," Campbell told the UK's The Mirror. Evasive! 

4. How does Kate feel about the other Kate? "Oh, I love her! She was so chic and seamless. And just beautiful, it just as a royal wedding should be." 

5. She enjoys jam! There were rumors that Kate had enjoyed making jam, but some people (a.k.a. Chic) didn't believe. What fools we were! Kate tells The Telegraph writer (who brought her jam as a gift, the clever girl!) "I love my jam. I've just had a batch of it come through, I've been making it." Chic just fainted.

Chic grabbed a quick momento with Woody Allen last night during the Cinema Society's screening of his new flick, Midnight in Paris, in Tribeca

What's your writing process like?
I just use a pen and paper or my typewriter. I’ve had the same typewriter since I was sixteen years old. I bought it for 40 bucks; it’s an Olympian Portable. It doesn’t have a scratch on it. You could drop it off a building and nothing would happen to it. It doesn’t require any coddling or nurturing. Every word I’ve ever written in my life has been typed on it.

One of the characters in the film is Ernest Hemmingway. He once said, "Write drunk and edit sober." What do you think of that?
I can see that. The problem is, when you edit, you’ll probably eliminiate 98 percent of what you’ve written. Hemmingway had a great capacity for drinking, so that might have worked for him, but if I have just one beer or two wines, I would write The Prophet by Khalil Gibran or something like that.

What do you dislike doing in Paris?
I don’t like to go to the theater because I don’t understand French. I’ve found myself sitting in there for two hours to give it a try, and it just didn’t happen. I hated it.
