Kate Moss Week: The Best Ever Kateisms In Celebration Of Mossy's 40th Birthday

15 January 2014

Happy 40th birthday, Kate Moss! The superdupermodel celebrates her Big Day on 16th January so how better to pay tribute to the one and only Mossy than by covering every angle of why we love her, from her most iconic cover moments to the best of her hairvolution. Now it's time to relive some of our favourite Kateisms. Repeat after us...

On being a homebody:

‘I did get really into cooking at one point. I can do a good roast with my eyes closed. I’m amazing with gravy. That’s my speciality, even other people ask me to do gravy at their house. I’m very proud of my gravy.’

On her body:

‘going to the gym wouldn’t be on my list of favourite things to do.’

On being on top of the fashion game:

‘People think your success is just a matter of having a pretty face. But it’s easy to be chewed up and spat out. You’ve got to stay ahead of the game to be able to stay in it.’

On her career:

‘i have met almost everyone i’ve ever wanted to meet.’

On staying slim:

‘Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.’ This quote, to fashion website WWD, was hugely controversial, because Kate had qualified it, saying, ‘You try and remember, but it never works,’ but only the first half was picked up by the tabloids.

On partying:

‘i haven’t partied since... last friday.’

On spilling the beans:

‘I won’t write a book... Not until I’m, like, 105... Because you can’t get a good book unless you’re going to spill the beans, and I can’t... not for a long time.’

On fashion’s royalty (in church, for her wedding):

‘I thought we might all burst into flames, all the crap we’ve done.’

On being an enigma:

‘Never complain, never explain.’

On people she admires:

‘The Queen. She’s fabulous!’

On her ’90s grunge days:

‘I never did a dirty armpit. You can look dirty, but you can’t be dirty.’
