Sitting on my desk is the November issue of Vanity Fair, coke-plagued model Kate Moss' vulnerable face staring out at me above her name, writ large, and a headline asking "Can She Come Back?"
I think they call this kind of thing a performative utterance, an act of speech that performs the action that it describes. In asking the question of whether Moss will make a comeback in a big fat cover story, Vanity Fair has ensured its answer. Yes. Kate Moss is back.
That didn't take long.
