An exhibition dedicated to the career of Kate Moss has been cancelled.

In September 2008, Paris museum Musee des Arts Decoratifs announced it would have a show in homage of the supermodel and explore the myth behind her.

The exhibition was set to include images of Kate, which have been taken by some of the world's greatest photographers over the past 20 years.

It was due to be opened last November, but it was temporarily postponed due to lack of funds.

Now the museum has announced that "given the economic situation" it is no longer planning to stage it at all.

While an exhibition is no longer happening, it was recently reported Kate's life is to become a play, which is being written by her musician boyfriend Jamie Hince with her help.

An insider said: "Jamie is addicted to playwriting and is always jotting down scenes.

"He mentioned an idea to Kate, based around the lives of her and her friends - and Kate leapt at the chance to get involved."

The Script will be backed by her friend and Topshop boss Sir Philip Green.

The 36-year-old beauty's life would certainly make for interesting theatre, as well as modelling for Burberry, Dior and Chanel, she has dated a host of famous men including Johnny Depp and Pete Doherty.

She also has a seven-year-old daughter Lila Grace from her relationship with magazine publisher Jefferson Hack.
