Kate Moss photos to hit block

Newton

Few people have been photographed more often than Kate Moss, and some of the most famous images of the supermodel are going under the hammer at a Christie’s auction this fall.

The sale, announced Wednesday, includes a shot of Moss encased in bronze glitter by Allen Jones and images by well-known photographers including Annie Leibovitz, Bruce Weber, Mario Testino, Sam Taylor-Wood and Irving Penn.

The works, collectively valued at about $1.5 million, have been assembled by German collector Gert Elfering. He called Moss a “living icon.”

The works will be sold at Christie’s in London on Sept. 25.

Royal baby box

A future British king or queen might spend some early hours sleeping in a cardboard box – if a maternity package donated by Finland’s social security service proves a success.

The Nordic country has given a baby box to Prince William and former Catherine Middleton, who are expecting their first baby mid-month.

The brightly colored cardboard box doubles as a cot, complete with mattress and sheets, and contains numerous baby items including a sleeping bag, jump suits, socks, pants, hats, bonnets and diapers. Maternity packages have been given to expectant mothers in Finland since 1938.

Estate goes to kids

The late “Sopranos” star also left millions to his wife and relatives.

He left $200,000 each to his personal assistant and secretary.

Gandolfini died June 19.
