Kate Moss covers British Vogue, talks about her favorite ‘Absolutely Fabulous’ episode

Royals Xmas Day church

Kate Moss covers the January issue of British Vogue. I feel like every British Vogue editor has it in their contract that they have to give Kate at least one cover a year. Sometimes two a year. In some sense, the constancy of Kate Moss makes me happy. Even though she gives interviews more often these days, she still retains that enigmatic vibe she’s had throughout her career, which has helped her so much. She’s never felt the need to explain herself, and she’s done literally thousands of magazine editorials without ever needing to say a word. Kate is 46 years old and I think she looks really good? Good genes, because we know she’s spent the past twenty-five years partying her ass off.

Anyway, Kate didn’t do a traditional cover interview for this appearance on British Vogue, but she did a video, with questions submitted by her famous friends:

I also miss the world without cameraphones. Kate’s such a ‘90s girl, yet she would also be at home at any era? But I love all of the gossip here – Kate fainted when she met Frank Sinatra and Bob Dylan, the memories about clothes and parties and all of the famous people she’s met and partied with. It’s amazing!! Kate hates litterbugs! Kate loves early episodes of Absolutely Fabulous! Kate loves baths! Yeah, this is great.

    I think Photoshop is giving her career longevity. When I see her candid photos it’s clear her smoking and party lifestyle has caught up with her.

      I was thinking the same thing. I saw some pap shots of her a while back which were not very flattering.
      I think Naomi looks absolutely gorgeous and aged the best.
      Do miss the 90s though.

      Yes, KM also dabbles in fillers now and it’s very noticeable. Her pics on DM are not kind. Not the distance this cover pic is taken..not close with filters.Give me Naomi

    • Summergirl says:

      I agree. Though she’s a beautiful woman, she absolutely shows the signs of having lived hard.

    • Ash says:

      I’ve seen I non-photoshopped pics of her, and I think she shows signs of having led a fun and exciting lifestyle. Of course she’s aged a bit, but she’s still drop dead gorgeous.

    One of the absolute best. ICON.

    I am laughing my head off that she thinks being called a ” wagon” in Ireland is a cute little nickname for being tipsy.

    My favorite Ab Fab episode is the one in Morocco where Saffron’s bad girl side emerges.

    • Ageonmaui says:

      I love the part where Eddie sells Saffron in Morocco. The epsisode where Eddie and Patsy take the Concord to NYC find the perfect door handle for her burned down kitchen is a classic too.

    • SarahCS says:

      I re-watched them recently and the beginning of the one where she turns 40 was always good but watching it now that I’ve passed that mark it cracks me up more than ever.

      The trip to France is pretty epic too.

    Huh. Interesting. I’ve never heard her speak before. I don’t think I could have sat sideways on a couch, with my arm over the back, while facing forward to the camera for that long. Now that’s a professional! And she’s always had exceptional posture. I liked her best when she left her mannered speaking to tell that Frank Sinatra story & her DVF response.

  6. LillyfromLilooet says:

    I’m just glad she’s eating. The first thing I thought when she spoke of fainting was, oh, she might have been really hungry. Back in the early years, I always thought that vacant middle distance look was that of someone in a low-blood sugar fog.

    That said, Kate forever! I keep tying and erasing, “she’s keeping it real.” I think I always appreciated her because she has never come off as frantic about her looks or people pleasing.
