Vivienne Westwood On Kate Moss: Kate 'Really Understands' Style

15 October 2012

It's no secret that Kate Moss is a huge fan of Vivienne Westwood, wearing the fashion designer's creations from the catwalk to the holiday yacht. But the love is all around, for while it's not the first time Vivienne sings high praises to La Moss, Vivienne Westwood reaffirms why the seasoned supermodel is just so special.

On her blog Active Resistance, Vivienne Westwood recounts a double date with Kate, rocker husband Jamie Hince, and Vivienne's other half Andreas Kronthaler. They visited a Paris showroom for Kate to try on some designs, as well as the opening for Yasmine Eslami's new underwear line. Vivienne discusses Kate's relationship with clothes: 'This girl really has got style. Such an intimate rapport between the clothes and her body, she really knows how to use it and she has so much energy...' According to Vivienne, seeing a woman trying on clothes with such understanding helps her to 'adjust' her designing techniques. Perhaps Kate is a potential Vivienne muse?

Muse or no, we do know Vivienne admires La Moss' vivacious personality. She describes Kate's interaction with the fashion crowd: 'Kate's so pleased to see them. All friends, throwing her arms around them... Andreas says to me, 'What a lovely little thing, so kind, running around."' And it seems Vivienne is not the only one enthralled with Kate's exuberance as she tries on clothes, as Kate's beau Jamie is more than pleased to watch his wife at work: 'My idea of the perfect strip show is women getting dressed.' Well then, we hope to see muse La Moss teasing at Vivienne's next show.
