Kate Moss Talks Modeling, Heroin and Anorexia With Allure

Posted on July 16, 2013

Supermodel Kate Moss covers the August 2013 issue of Allure. Kate was photographed by Mario Testino. In the interview, Kate talks about modeling, anorexia, heroin and wearing clothes with confidence.

On Why She Thinks She is Such a Powerful Inspiration: "I must be a bit of a blank canvas. Or something. At a shoot, I'm really aware of everything. When they do makeup, sometimes I can't see what they're doing, but I can feel it. I know what I look like, even when I can't see what they've done. I know how to compose myself."

On Heroin and Anorexia Accusations: "It was horrible, especially the anorexic thing. The heroin, I was like, 'Oh, it's ridiculous. I know I don't do heroin. Just because I wear a bit of black eyeliner that's smudged....' But the anorexic thing was a lot more upsetting, to be held responsible for somebody's illness. I wasn't anorexic."

On Wearing Clothes With Confidence: "With confidence, I think anyone can get a dress and make it their own. I don't think you should have it off the runway and wear it like they want you to wear it. You know, with their hair and makeup-their woman. I just think it's boring. You have to make it your own. That's what fashion is all about."
