Inspired By… Kate Moss

Kate Moss will go down as one of the world’s best models.


Kate is best known for her Heroin-chic look and influence on size zero models.  She’s been modeling since 1988, and still is one of the most popular choices amongst designers, despite being 39 years old.  Kate’s also known for her past drug use (specifically cocaine) and for dating actor Johnny Depp and former Libertines member Pete Doherty.  She’s now married to Jamie Hince, guitarist for The Kills, and has one daughter, Lila Grace, with Dazed & Confused editor Jefferson Hack.

But, Kate’s also known for her style, which makes sense since she’s a top paying model.  Her personal style still tends to lean towards that Heroin-chic look she sported in the 90’s.  So when trying to dress like this modeling legend, think black, a good bag, and tight dresses.

In this first look, Kate is running errands.  To copy her chic black and tan look, go with a black tank top, tan skinny jeans, black blazer, and black combat boots.  Accessorize with a gold necklace (preferably long) and a tan or beige purse.

This second look is of Kate after attending a promotion event.  Her embellished dress is cute for a dinner date.  Choose a dress with embellishments (you can be daring and go with the whole dress, or stick with embellishments on the top half of the dress), black heels, and a black clutch.

In this final look, Kate has just gone out with her husband.  Turn this cocktail outfit into a dazzling night on the town look.  Select a grey bodycon dress, black heels, black tights, and a black cardigan to keep warm.  Don’t forget to accessorize with a black clutch!

Kate Moss is just one of those people who’ve impacted the fashion industry so much.  Her personal style is one of the best, and I personally love her heroin-chic look.  Just remember, when trying to emulate Kate, black and clutches are a girl’s best friend.
