Kate Moss pays £50,000 for Marilyn-style painting of herself

Kate Moss has paid street artist Bambi £50,000 to work on a painting of herself.

The 39-year-old supermodel commissioned the acclaimed street artist - who has previously painted for stars including Brad Pitt, Rihanna, Adele and Robbie Williams - to produce the oil work, which she requested to be similar to the iconic Marilyn by Andy Warhol.

Moss is said to be thrilled with the piece - an oil painting which depicts the British beauty with bright red lips - and is planning to hang it in her country retreat in the Cotswolds for all her friends to admire.

A source told the Daily Star: "Kate's been wanting to commission a Bambi special for months. She plans to hang it in pride of place in her Cotswolds farmhouse.

"Kate's country pile has a lot more space than her north London home and she has a room full of art."

Bambi's agent Leonard Villa said: "It's one of the best paintings she's ever done.

"It's a take on Warhol's iconic Marilyn and I don't comment on prices but, yes, it's a five-figure sum."
