Kate Moss admires ‘lopsided’ style

Kate Moss loves that British girls look "messy and lopsided".
The supermodel is proud to be from the UK because she loves the fashion there. The star thinks it’s easy to tell where a woman is from just by studying their clothes.
“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,” she mused.
“French girls have their look with their long hair and sophistication. And then we English girls look a little… lopsided. Messy in the nicest way.”
Kate made the comments to Derek Blasberg, who was interviewing her for Harper’s Bazaar. The chat took place earlier this year, and he’s just published some bits that didn’t make it into the final cut on his blog.
The model was promoting her commercial for store Mango and spoke a great deal about high street fashion. She loves mixing cheaper pieces with designer items and is pleased on-trend designs are now widely available for everyone.
“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,” she laughed.
“You can get amazing stuff now. Miss Selfridge, when I was a kid, was where we used to go, but now they do clothes that women can buy. It’s not just for the kids. Now everyone goes to Topshop, everyone goes to Mango.
“Now it’s all women, and girls of all ages can find stuff. I went shopping with my 15-year-old goddaughter and she was a size six, and we were looking at the same stuff. So I thought I could get her to go shop for me now. She can be my shopper!”
