Kate Moss: My Rules For Style, Hair ... and Tan Lines

Kate Moss Allure Mario Testino for Allure

After more than 20 years as one of the most in-demand models in the business, it’s no surprise that Kate Moss has some hard-and-fast style rules she lives by. What’s more surprising is that she’s willing to share them.

Rule No. 1: No sweats. “I try to be a little bit chic,” she says in the August issue of Allure. “I wouldn’t wear sweatpants. I wouldn’t wear twinsets.”

What else won’t she wear? Well, a bikini top when it’s not absolutely necessary — she’s not into tan lines. “I don’t mind a bikini bottom,” she shares. “My husband likes lines on the bum. Men like white bums. I try not to have a white boob.”

Also a must: “Always clean hair. That’s a must. If in doubt, wash it.” Interesting coming from the onetime face of the “heroin chic” model movement — though she disavows that as well. “The heroin, I was like, ‘Oh, its just ridiculous. I don’t do heroin. Just because I wear a bit of black eyeliner that’s smudged!'”

The supermodel is candid on a number of subjects, from her past relationship with Johnny Depp (“Never complain. Never explain.”) to raising her daughter, Lila. For lots more from the star, visit Allure.com and pick up the new issue, on stands July 23.

Kate Moss has always been beautiful!

She’s aging better…or maybe it’s that she has a bit more skin on her bones. Prettier now, but still a bit scrawny.

Most average looking scrawny white broad on the planet. She should be working in fast food not rich.

Sammi on

Right, like I’ll take any sort of advice from this piss tank.

In my case, the less I wash my hair and the more product in it, the better it styles.

LM on

Love this fab B!

kw on

I’ve never seen what makes people think she’s a beauty

Andrea on

Men like white bums???

I love it when celebrities say, “I don’t wear sweats. Not EVER.” And why would you? It’s not like you ever have to scrub a toilet or run to the grocery to buy milk in a pinch. Or have to worry about spit up on your nice clothes when you have full time nannies. You have “people who do that.” The rest of us end up wearing sweats every now and then. Every time I read anything about anything she says I always end up rolling my eyes.
