Kate Moss Shares Her Style Secrets

For the past two decades, supermodel Kate Moss‘s laid-back look has made her a muse for some of fashion’s hottest designers, style tastemakers and artists — and she’s finally revealing her style secrets in an interview with The London Times. “When it comes to dressing,” she tells the paper, “I follow my feelings and just get dressed. For me, it’s not necessarily about trends or even interpreting catwalk looks.” But for those of us who don’t have her innate sense of style, she offers a little sage advice for how to always get it right. “Never look like you’ve tried too hard — or, rather, don’t try too hard!” she emphasizes. “Mismatching can add a much more personal touch to an outfit.” And when it comes to hair, she’s equally adventurous. “Be brave and try a new hairstyle,” says the model, who recently took her own advice, chopping off her long locks into a bob. “It can completely transform your look just for one night and inspire a new way of looking at your existing wardrobe.” And as the reigning queen of vintage cool she offers a little advice on buying secondhand. “When you buy a vintage or secondhand piece, don’t take it on face value — it can be altered in so many ways. I’ve lopped the hem off many a full-length gown and made necklines lower. It does help to have a genius dressmaker, otherwise just do it yourself.” Click here to check out all of Kate’s sartorial wisdom — and learn the story behind the 21st-birthday dress, given to her by former flame Johnny Depp, that she hopes to pass down to her daughter.

To me she always looks like she just got out of bed. I still can’t get over the 18 million dollar crotch shot. Have you seen that statue? Not pretty.

It’s not just People magazine that is obsessed with her. Open any fashion magazine these days and there will be least a few ads featuring Kate Moss. In addition, Vogue featured her on one of their recent covers (so you are totally wrong there, “D”).

Like it or not, Kate is in hot demand these days.

Anybody have seen what she wore couple of months ago in Turkey with her daughter in hand? Sheer dress-her ass and boobs totally exposed for everyone to see( no bra or panties)! And this woman dares to give advice to people how to dress? Outrageous!
