Kate Moss covered her head from the rain this morning to check in on the progress of construction at her new London home with her husband Jamie Hince. Both Kate and Jamie are home from a recent stint in Paris, where she was by his side during his shows with the Kills. Business of her own brought Kate to France earlier this Fall when she talked up her collection for Rimmel in a few select interviews. Kate Moss talked to writer Derek Blasberg about some funny and personal topics. It was revealed that Kate wanted to sneak into the McQueen show in a wig shortly after her cocaine arrest in 2005, and she shared more anecdotes about dressing, style, and sharing a name with Duchess Kate. Miss Moss said:
- On the art of mixing high and low: "I get lots of things. I grew up wearing Marks & Spencer, and that’s where I got all my underwear when I was young. Now I just mix it in with the Stella McCartney, darling."
- On how style differs among European women: "There’s definitely a different style from London to Europe: The French girls dress different from the English girls and the Spanish girls and the Italian girls . . . and French girls have their look with their long hair and sophistication. And then we English girls look a little . . . lopsided."
- On the posters of her that went up before the royal wedding that said "There's Only One Kate": "Yeah, I saw them. I watched the wedding, too, of course! We had a big party, and all the kids came around. I thought Kate [Middleton] looked amazing . . . [though] I think she’s called Catherine with a C now."
