Kate Moss gets all steamy – as she poses in a Turkish bath.

The catwalk queen, 34, was dolled up as a sultan’s mistress for the Istanbul shoot.

And Kate certainly whetted appetites as she stripped to a skimpy dress and her underwear for the sweltering 15- hour session.

Mert Alas, who snapped her for W magazine, hailed her as “unbelievable…the most beautiful concubine of the sultan”. But what king wouldn’t want to run the rule over her?

May 16

 

IT was meant to be the happiest day of their lives.

 But the Chinese earthquake turned their lives upside down.

 Newly-wed bride Hai Jiao Bailushuyuan and her husband Tang Di were gathering guests together(33 people inc photographers) in front of a 100 yrs old church  for photographs when the 7.9 magnitude tremor struck.
Then the ground began to shake and masonry tumbled from the church.
This picturesque Catholic monastery, where the pictures were due to be taken, was reduced to a pile of rubble in just EIGHT SECONDS.
These snaps of the devastation were taken by bewildered wedding photographer Wang Qiang.

The young couple had tied the knot in the town of Pengzhou, in Sichuan province.

Immediately after the quake the bride stood horrified in the ruins of the church and its courtyard.

Guests, coated with layers of grit, struggled to breathe in the dust-filled air as a pall of smoke blocks out the sunlight.

Tang Di said later that he believed they had survived the quake because the once-majestic, 100-year-old church was a “blessed place”.

There had been five weddings taking place when the quake hit on May 12 and dozens of people ran for shelter in the confusion.

Many dragged themselves to safety from the rubble and built makeshift shelters until they were finally rescued by the Chinese military.

 But last night it was feared that around 30 guests were still missing.
