Kate Moss: My Rules For Style, Hair ... and Tan Lines

Updated

Mario Testino for Allure

After more than 20 years as one of the most in-demand models in the business, it’s no surprise that Kate Moss has some hard-and-fast style rules she lives by. What’s more surprising is that she’s willing to share them.

Rule No. 1: No sweats. “I try to be a little bit chic,” she says in the August issue of Allure. “I wouldn’t wear sweatpants. I wouldn’t wear twinsets.”

What else won’t she wear? Well, a bikini top when it’s not absolutely necessary — she’s not into tan lines. “I don’t mind a bikini bottom,” she shares. “My husband likes lines on the bum. Men like white bums. I try not to have a white boob.”

Also a must: “Always clean hair. That’s a must. If in doubt, wash it.” Interesting coming from the onetime face of the “heroin chic” model movement — though she disavows that as well. “The heroin, I was like, ‘Oh, its just ridiculous. I don’t do heroin. Just because I wear a bit of black eyeliner that’s smudged!'”

The supermodel is candid on a number of subjects, from her past relationship with Johnny Depp (“Never complain. Never explain.”) to raising her daughter, Lila. For lots more from the star, visit Allure.com and pick up the new issue, on stands July 23.
