Washington  British supermodel Kate Moss has been dropped as the face of lingerie giant Agent Provocateur.

And the news comes straight from the firm's co-owner Serena Rees, who revealed that firm has decided not to renew Moss' 500,000 pounds-a-year contract, and has opted to go for a younger model instead.

"Our current campaign with Kate comes to an end in August and we've already chosen our new face. It's top-secret but she's quite different. She's not sexy in an overt way," the Daily Mail quoted her, as saying.

As for why the split has come, well insiders insist that the reason is because Serena ran off with Paul Simonon, former bassist of rock band The Clash - and the husband of one of Kate's best friends.
