Fab Blab: Kate Moss Speaks About Being Skinny

Kate Moss has a history of not doing interviews. She began to slowly break her silence with the launch of her Topshop collection and has now granted an honest interview to Interview Magazine.

We revealed the cover earlier in the month and most of you loved it. Inside Kate talks candidly about Lila, her wardrobe and being too skinny.

  • On Lila:
    I'm saving my clothes for her really. That's my blackmail. "Don't eat your dinner and you won't get my clothes. You won't grown and you won't get into my clothes." Now she's a fashion freak.

  • On Shopping:
    I like clothes, but I hardly ever go shopping. If I see a second-hand shop, I'll go in. But I don't, like, traipse down Bond Street. I don't have as many clothes as you probably think. I'm a big Brian Jones fan and I bought his coat, this Ossie Clark pink-and-white tweed coat.
  • On being skinny:
    I didn't eat for a long time. Not on purpose. You'd be on shoots with bad food or get on a plane and the food would be so disgusting you couldn't eat it. You go to a show and there's no food at all ... I remember standing up in the bath one day and ... I was so thin! I was never anorexic ... I remember thinking, I don't want to be this skinny.

Kate Moss is not the only model to speak out against the attitude of eating in the fashion industry. Karen Elson also spoke out and told The Guardian,

"Fashion is obsessed with finding young, beautiful and vulnerable girls, bringing them into the fashion world, praising them, worshipping them but suddenly dropping them like a stone when they hit puberty and grow boobs and hips. It's so dangerous and can potentially harm the girls mentally and physically."
