Kate Moss Opens Up About Her New Perfume, Says Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels

Kate Moss was back in one of her favorite fur jackets for an evening out in London on Thursday. She's able to balance the demands of her career and social life, and Kate just added another element to her growing business empire. She's set to launch a new fragrance called Vintage, with hair and beauty products to follow. She sat down with Women's Wear Daily to chat about her business, touching on a few issues like her impressions of herself and the maxims by which she lives. Here's more:

  • On her definition of beauty: "It sounds really corny, but I think that if you’re beautiful inside, it shows on the outside for sure. You can be a pretty face, but if you’re not a nice person, it just doesn’t work. I’m not traditionally a beauty, but apparently people think I’m all right. If you’re a nice person, it definitely helps."
  • On getting inspired: "I write sometimes, or I’ll draw. It all depends what’s around. If I’m with my daughter, I’ll paint. I make jam. It’s kind of creative when you make jam. In the country, I get creative with what I have in my house. I just did my dressing room [with my former personal assistant who now designs interiors] and that was quite a good creative process. It’s heaven. We did it together. I wanted it to be a space, not just a closet. I wanted it to be a room you could feel comfortable in and hang out in without just being a wardrobe."
  • On her mottoes: "There are loads. There’s 'nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.' That’s one of them. You try and remember, but it never works."

To see what Kate has to say about her business, mentors, and preferred relaxation techniques, as well as more photos, just

.

  • On who her mentors are: "My close friends, probably. There are lots of women I look up to, but mentors are someone you talk to and not just admire. A lot of my friends that I trust are my mentors. They would say, “Oh no, Kate, that’s not a good look."
  • On how she relaxes: "I’ve got a steam room now, I go in there. It’s heaven. I steam and then go to the relaxation room and cool off. In the country, I go for walks and hang out and make jam."
  • On the secret to multitasking: "I think women are really good at multitasking. Men just cannot do it. My boyfriend cannot talk on the phone and [answer] if I ask him a question or get dressed at the same time. I can do all of that — talk on the phone, answer a question, get dressed, and put my makeup on all at the same time. Women just do, don’t they? I think it’s something to do with babies. When you have a child, you have to be able to multitask."

@TruthHurts3: I believe the nicer term is gluttonous.

The truth= 1) You are. jealous. 2) Americans are the most self indulgent, obese, sinful (i believe the nicer term is Gluttony) people on the EARTH. 3) Stop eating so much (its called portion control) 4) Eat better, be skinny, love life more :)

She didn't come up with that motto... I used to do weight watchers and they would tell us that same thing during meetings.

She could have said, "it's important to avoid empty calories," and then no one would care. It was painfully stupid of her to recite a SPECIFICALLY pro-ana mantra in her stupid interview. Is it that hard to avoid disordered eating proverbs? Yeesh.

I understand what she's saying, and completely agree. She's not advocating anorexia, but rather moderation. Sure, I can eat that extra slice of pizza, but in the long run I'm going to be happier with a healthier, smaller frame. I think people in the english-speaking world are too stubborn and afraid to speak out and address the fact that our portion sizes and food choices are not okay.

Her hair looks amazing! Love the look she had at her Brother's Birthday bash.

Kate Moss is gross. However, by making the "skinny" comment; she just said what everyone thinks. Too many people focus on being thin when the most important is being healthy. I hate the way people talk about anorexia like it's leprosy or an STD. It's a killer disease such as cancer, and instead of judging and turning away from someone suffering with it...maybe stop and look to see how we all contribute to it. It's not so fashionable when young and old men and women die after suffering with it. Sheeeesh..Society is what kills.

I agree that we all like ourselves better when we lose those extra pounds or even more. But being unhealthily skinny is models' thing as hangers so its normal for her. It shouldn't be promoted by anyone who can set a role model. Besides, sometimes when I feel really stressed nothing feels better than a piece of chocolate tastes! Life feels better when your not starving :)

I love Kate. I don't think her motto was intended to promote any eating disorders but it's true.. it's a great feeling when you loose weight and you look your best.

I agree with Princis11. Kate said her motto "never works." She negated it, not support it. Reading comprehension, people. :)

Keep in mind that skinny in the world of Kate Moss is very different from our idea. I am skinny by all means and purposes (5'5 120)p in great shape, yet would never cut it as a model, as my belly and love handles somewhat stick out of tight jeans no matter how much cross fit I do (think Kurkuova when she was called fat). And yes, I can tell you that a brownie with ice cream and caramel with friends does taste a lot better than the sacrifice it would take from going from fit to fat free (ie, eat only tilapia and celery).

I'm 29, 5'4", 124 lbs. What I deem average and not a "young girl." When read her motto, I loved it! It's not like I want to be anorexic, or starve myself, but I have found that when I eat that extra piece of pizza, or extra snack during the day, or that cake during a co-workers b-day, I quickly gain 2-3 lbs. These might be minimal numbers, but if I don't tell myself not to eat those extra calories, my body is susceptible for easily gaining. It's nice to have a motto in my head during those weak moments to simply say, "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels," so I won't be disappointed when I weight myself 1 or 2 days later to see I've gained. I think the majority of these posts are being a little over sensitive. My girl friends and I are always sharing diet and "get thin" tips. We don't live by them, but it's definitely girl talk and nothing to take to heart.

biarose, I think that's the better way to say it as well. Making the word "skinny" the ideal or goal is the problem. Yes, obesity is an issue here in the US but young girls are also starving themselves. I think we should promote the ideas of a healthy body image and healthy eating--not some pre-set size or shape.
