1. '50s summer Dresses

Nipped in at the waist and more than a little reminiscent of Brigitte Bardot, Kate’s fave summer dresses have a distinctly vintage feel.

2. Leather Jackets

Battered, well-worn and either luxe or vintage, Kate’s collection of black bikers would give the Hell’s Angels a run for their money. 

3. Star Prints

Whether it’s the stars and stripes of the American flag or a Chanel star- printed gown, the constellation motif is timelessly chic. No wonder Kate’s such a fan. 

4. Fancy-dress Fabulous

Kate is the queen of the fancy- dress costume, effortlessly transforming her vintage finds and catwalk show-stoppers into prize-winning party looks.

5. Fedoras

A hat-o-holic, Kate has weathered many a bad hair day with the help of a fedora. Mossy is currently favouring a grey style by Saint Laurent.

6. The Skinny Jean

Like us, Mrs Hince seems to be on an endless hunt for the perfect skinny jean. This year, she’s worn a dazzling variety, including – take a breath – Wildfox’s Carmen skinnies, Paige’s Edgemont, Siwy’s Hannah, Current/Elliott’s The Stiletto and super- skinnies from Mango.

7. Leopard Lover

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Kate’s predilection for the classic print has taken her from the red carpet to the streets of North London. And wherever she is, Ms Moss always looks sexy.

8. Skinny Scarves

Left trailing or artfully knotted, Kate’s signature skinny scarves add a hint of dandy styling to even the simplest jeans and T-shirt combo.

9. Waistcoats 'n' Shorts

What does one wear on a yacht? Well, if you’re Kate Moss, you pair your favourite cut-off micro shorts with a loose-fitting waistcoat and you’ll be ready to cast off year in, year out.

Kate Moss has got style - and she knows it. A simple formular of rock-star classics mixed with chic St Tropez staples has kept Kate in style for more than 25 years. As the supermodel turns 40 today, we take a look at her greatest style signatures...

If you ever needed confirmation that nailing your personal style was prefereable to jumping on every bandwagon, Kate - one of tis country's most enduring fashion icons - provides it in spades. Rather than being a fair-weather fashion friend, Kate has found her style formula and stuck religiously to it year after year. The Imelda Marcos of skinny jeans and rock-star-ready leather jackets, she's also got a serious penchant for waistoats 'n' shorts combos, skin tight leather, shaggy coats and '50s summer dresses. But whatever she wears, you can be sure its both distinctive and trend-proof.

That's not to say that Mossy's look is predictable, she always manages to add a twist to her signature shillouette with sizzling hot accessories and a hint of dishevelled elegence. Long silk scarves nonchantly knotted, hand picked layered jewels, perfect fedoras and a seemingly endless supply of Louboutins- currently she's a fan of 'So Kate' stiletto - add panche to even the simplest of outfits. As far as bags are concerned, Kate is extremely choosy - you wont see her stepping out with a new handbag every day.

Indeed, over the past year she's mostly been swapping between a hand-painted Balenciaga shopper and Saint Laurent's pared-back Duffle. Then there are the classic prints and patterns: leopard, stars and Breton stripes are all fallbacks. After that, all that’s needed is a slick of black eyeliner and Kate’s style DNA is complete. Mossy, we salute you!
