Kate Moss Allure August 2013

Captured by Mario Testino wearing a Dennis Basso fox-fur-and-velvet shrug, Kate Moss is the gorgeous cover girl for Allure’s August 2013 issue.
The British model, who is the spokesperson for St Tropez and Rimmel, also wears a fox-fur Marc Jacobs coat and a goat-hair jacket by Adrienne Landau for her editorial.
The usually private model opens up to Allure about plastic surgery, rumours about her weight, and the best piece of advice she got from her ex Johnny Depp.

Allure’s August 2013 issue hits newsstands Tuesday, July 23. Here are some extracts from her interview. Read more over at Allure.com.

On tabloid rumors: “It was horrible, especially the anorexic thing. The heroin, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s just ridiculous; I don’t do heroin. Just because I wear a bit of black eyeliner that’s smudged . . . ‘ But the anorexic thing was a lot more upsetting, to be held responsible for somebody’s illness. I wasn’t anorexic.”

On her approach to fashion and beauty: “I try to be a little bit chic. I wouldn’t wear sweatpants. I wouldn’t wear a twinset.”

On her famed relationship with Johnny Depp: “Never complain, never explain.”

On being a celebrity: “Everyone’s a celebrity. But I’m kind of a celebrity now, so even though I’m not an actress, people know my name. I’m not just a face.”

On her daughter Lila: “She’s watched The Devil Wears Prada ten times, and she’s got a desk in her room with a phone… She puts a little outfit on and picks up the phone: ‘Hello, Miranda Priestly’s office.’ I say, ‘Lila, do you know who Miranda Priestly is in real life?’ But she just doesn’t care. She’s like, ‘Hello, Miranda Priestly’s office. Can you hold? Patrick Demarchelier on the line!’ I died when I heard her do it. So funny. She doesn’t have a clue who she is, but it’s word for word.”
