She barely gives interviews and has shunned social media but as she prepares to celebrate her 41st birthday on January 16th, Kate Moss has decided to divulge her wardrobe secrets.
The blonde-haired supermodel spoke to Look magazine about her top eight style rules.
1. Vamp up your look with lipstick
Kate wears a natural beige lip colour day-to-day but for a more dramatic evening look opts for a pillar box red.
“I just slick it on, I don’t bother with lipliner,” she says.
2. Don’t be afraid of high heels
Even when she’s papped popping to Tesco for a pint of milk, Kate is hardly out of her trusty sky-high boots.
She tells the magazine that “great shoes” can transform a look: “They will make an outfit feel polished, cool and put together.”
3. Sort out your clobber
Kate has not one, not two but THREE wardrobes – “one big one and two everyday ones”.
In order to keep your clothes in check she recommends organising things into boxes and labelling them with Polaroids.
“I organise my denim, leather and dresses by colour, although my jeans are usually black and grey,” she adds.
4. Summer style should be effortless
Make sure your beach bag is full of “floaty chiffons and soft suede”, says Kate.
The supermodel is a fan of maxi dresses but leaves her heels at home because “wearing them on a beach is ridiculous”. Agreed.
5. Shop vintage
Don’t be afraid to rifle through charity shops and flea markets to find hidden gems.
“Look for quality pieces that can be repaired if needed,” says Kate.
6. Pick a capsule wardrobe
Kate says her staple items are “jeans, a tank top, a jacket and boots”.
She thinks every woman should find key pieces that work for her, including a must-have “little black dress”.
7. Ward off the paps
Kate tries to keep the cameras off her by wearing similar things every day.
She says, “If you wear the same thing, they get bored and leave you alone.”
8. Find a beauty regime – and stick to it
Mossy swears by Creme de la Mer to keep her skin moisturised and Lucas Papaw balm for chap-free lips.
She also treats herself to Nichola Joss facials when she’s looking for a pick-me-up.
