She’s now 37, and lets face it, at times she can look pretty ropey, but Kate Moss proved again this week that in the fashion world, she is still the ultimate supermodel. In a series of stunning looks, and rocking that sexy new Kate red shade of Rimmel lippy, Kate has proved that when she chooses to, she can light up a camara lens like no-one else. And, in style terms, she is still the one all eyes turn to when she walks into a room.
Kate has had a busy week. The launch of her new Kate lipstick range for Rimmel has seen a whole host of parties and launches, with Kate looking picture perfect in a covetable collection of outfits. Whether it be the little black strapless dress that Kate wore to the launch party that also signified the start of London Fashion Week (Georgia May Jagger sported a remarkably similar look), or the black strapless catsuit by Azarro that she wore to her pal Stella McCartney‘s 40th birthday party, Kate shows she is a mistress in the art of party dressing.
I love that Kate always keeps the accessories to the minimum, rather than adding overfussy adornment to outfits that don’t need them. Some have criticised the catsuit she wore to Stella’s party, but I think this is a very sexy subversion of a traditional party dress. And with her hair glossy and skin glowing, she looked simply beautiful. A version of this catsuit, with halter tie straps, had been worn by Cheryl Cole on the X Factor, but to much lesser effect due to a very fussy side plait in her hair, and far too elaborate ankle strap shoes.
Earlier in the week, Kate had taken part in the promotional tour for the Kate lipsticks. I adored the great grey jersey look she wore for that event, it was a very smart daytime look, and that grey shade was a striking contrast to the red of her lips. And the new advert also showcases the rock chick side of Kate, with her Britpop style Union Jack guitar.
Kate may have her detractors, but in my eyes she is the ultimate model, beautiful, luminescent and stylish. I love to see her looks, and look forward to what her next outfit will be. She is still the Ultimate London Girl (Sorry Alexa..) and it is her London look that is emulated by so many.
