How To Dress Like Kate Moss: The Supermodel's 7 Fashion Commandments

When Kate Moss was spotted with her dad at JFK airport at the tender age of 14, nobody could have predicted that, 25 years later, she would be the most enduring model of our age. And in an industry not renowned for longevity, the fact that Kate's star is still shining brightly is something worth celebrating. So, in the new issue of Grazia, we have dedicated no fewer than 15 pages to Kate's Silver Jubilee, with iconic pictures from throughout her stellar career and tributes from some of the industry's biggest names. Pick up your issue now to see every Mossy morsel but in the meantime, find out how to dress like the supermodel with her seven fashion commandments...
You might think you know Kate Moss's wardrobe down to the very last Alexander McQueen scarf, but how does the supermodel describe her own style? Well listen carefully folks, we are about to bring you the gospel according to Ms Moss...

1. A sexy skirt is a good buy...

Kate Moss: 'The pencil skirt is one of the most useful items to have in your wardrobe as it's always saucy (especially in black) and seems to work for almost everyone.'

2. You don't have to be girlie...

Kate Moss: 'Just because you’re wearing a pretty dress, it doesn’t have to be pretty-pretty.'

 3. Dress for your shape...

Kate Moss: 'If you have great legs, show them off with a short dress and heels or skinny jeans. If you've got a large bust, avoid high necklines. I don't think of things as outfits, I throw together what I feel is right for the night.'

4. Be inspired by an era...

Kate Moss: 'It's important to have some inspiration or a reference point when you're dressing….I really love the late 1960s and 1970s, around the time of the Rolling Stones. I don't channel it in everything I wear, but it does seem to feed through most outfits.'

 

5. When in doubt, stick to black...

Kate Moss: 'I just throw on whatever I feel like wearing at the time, which tends to come from the palette of black, grey or red. If I'm having an off day, I'll wear full black.'

6. Never leave your sunglasses at home...

Kate Moss: 'I always have a pair of Ray-Bans in my bag and lots of pairs at home because they seem to go missing. They're a real staple. It's important to accessorise and I always turn to the scarves, hats and sunglasses in my wardrobe. But wearing too many accessories at once can look very bad. I don't have any strict rules, but my husband does say not to wear a hat with glasses because I look as if I'm trying to wear a disguise.'

7. Jewellery is key...
