Kate Moss: The autobiography?

28 July 2011

Unlikely, but potentially amazing news from Moss-Hince Towers: Kate Moss is rumoured to be working on an autobiography.

The Sun reports that newly-married Kate has begun to gather ideas for the book, and quotes a (potentially rather spurious) source as saying that ‘Kate has always held back from giving interviews so the public don't know what she's really like and what's she gone through in her life… She's never opened up about her parents' divorce, having daughter Lila or her relationships with former boyfriends including Johnny Depp and Pete Doherty.

Indeed she hasn’t. Now, whilst the prospect of penning her life story seems like an improbably whippet-like turnaround for a woman who famously gives around one interview per millennia and once said ‘People don't hear me talk. They don't expect me to’, Moss’ autobiography would, undoubtedly, be a completely amazoid lid-lift on the life of one of fashion’s greatest icons.

In addition, Moss is famously into literature, citing the novels of Oscar Wilde, Evelyn Waugh and - of course - The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald (on which she based her 30th Birthday party) amongst her favourites. So if she DID decided the time was right for her to sit down and pen her bio, it’s quite likely that Kate’s own book would follow in the footsteps of her favourite authors by sumptuously recounting decadent tales from a life well lived.

But frankly, we’re just fantasizing. So until we hear official word from a publisher, or a more reliable source, or Moss herself, we’re going to take our overexcitement and pop it in a vintage jewellery box next to the one marked ‘Kate Middleton and Prince William’s baby’.
