Kate Moss covers the December issue of Vanity Fair in a picture shot by Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott. She also did an interview with the publication, and touched on a number of topics the normally private supermodel shies away from. Kate spoke about her start in modeling, including being credited with starting the "heroin-chic" look. Kate talked about her split from Johnny Depp and what her life is like now, and she also hilariously defines for everyone what it means to get "Mossed." Here are highlights from Kate Moss in Vanity Fair
- On being responsible for the "heroin-chic" look of the '90s: "I had never even taken heroin — it was nothing to do with me at all. I think [photographer Corinne Day], she wasn't on heroin but always loved that Lou Reed song, that whole glamorizing the squat, white-and-black and sparse and thin, and girls with dark eyes. She loved that look. I was thin, but that's because I was doing shows, working really hard. At that time, I was staying at a B and B in Milan, and you'd get home from work and there was no food. You'd get to work in the morning, there was no food. Nobody took you out for lunch when I started. Carla Bruni took me out for lunch once. She was really nice. Otherwise, you don't get fed. But I was never anorexic. They knew it wasn't true — otherwise I wouldn't be able to work."
- On her romance with Johnny: "There's nobody that's ever really been able to take care of me. Johnny did for a bit. I believed what he said. Like if I said, 'What do I do?,' he'd tell me. And that's what I missed when I left. I really lost that gauge of somebody I could trust. Nightmare. Years and years of crying. Oh, the tears!"
- Defining "Mossed": "People that don't know me get Mossed. It means, I was gonna go home, but then I just got led astray. In the best possible way, of course. I mean, it's always fun, and a good time."
- On her newfound stability: "I don't really go to clubs anymore. I'm actually quite settled. Living in Highgate with my dog and my husband and my daughter! I'm not a hell-raiser. But don't burst the bubble. Behind closed doors, for sure I'm a hell-raiser."
