Not that Kate Moss needs any validation as a muse — nor as a pop culture icon — but the upcoming exhibition dedicated to the supermodel at Paris’s Musée des Arts Décoratifs in spring 2011 certainly dispels any doubts. Moss also appears on March’s cover of Harper’s Bazaar, and shares her reaction to the museum honor (“I just didn’t believe it,” she says) and on her growing reach as a fashion designer. Despite her success in the apparel business, the 36-year-old says, “I’m not really a fashion designer. I just love clothes. I’ve never been to design school. I can’t sketch. I can’t cut patterns and things. I can shorten things. I can make a dress out of a scarf.” As for designers she considers “proper,” Moss cites Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, and John Galliano. She also dishes on another of her fashion industry favorites, Peter Lindbergh, who shot her for her Bazaar’s cover, offering some insight into aging gracefully: “Peter is old-school. There aren’t many around like him anymore who really know how to take pictures. I’ve known him since I was 18 and worked with him for Bazaar. He’s into older women, and as I get older, it gets better.” Read the full interview with Kate and see more photos from her cover shoot at harpersbazaar.com.-Emily Hsieh
