Put simply, Kate Moss just knows how to wear clothes. Never succumbing to trends that don’t suit her rock-chick-meets-vintage-boho style, she’s carved out the perfect wardrobe for herself, taking inspiration from ’60s fashion icons, her favourite musicians, and the designers she calls her close friends.
Since Kate’s catwalk debut at Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 1992 show, we’ve watched her style evolve into many, fabulous forms. In the ’90s, she was known for slinky, spaghetti strap dresses and her expert pairing of second-hand pieces with haute couture. Then, her party girl lifestyle ushered in the rock chick aesthetic that we know and love her for. And when she isn’t looking effortlessly edgy, she’s floating around in beautiful, vintage inspired dresses. But a commentary on Kate’s style would be incomplete without mentioning her go-to outfit combo — a simple, well-tailored suit, preferably in black.
We love how Kate’s style has transformed from the heyday of the grunge aesthetic in the ’90s, to her sophisticated, dynamic red carpet looks of today, while always staying true to what she loves. Ahead, we’ve come up with 14 reasons why Kate’s become such an icon, accompanied by some of her most statement outfits.
