Today, Kate Moss turns one year older, but we’re still looking to the style icon and legendary model for clues on how to turn back the clock. It turns out that having a youthful, devil-may-care approach to life is part of her secret to looking this good at 44.
As a born rebel, the defiant Moss is the consummate party girl and everyone’s favorite plus-one, but she has picked up a lot of wisdom along the way. She’s especially adept at taking these hard-earned nuggets of wisdom and distilling them down into pithy, single-sentence quotes. Frankly, we’re shocked that she hasn’t launched a line of slogan tees around her more famous sayings.
The thing about Moss is that she has zero filter, which means that she says what she’s thinking in the bluntest way possible – and we love her for it. While everyone else is carefully curating their responses, she’s out there speaking her mind sans safety rail. A reliable source of good sound bites for decades, the supermodel is well-known for controversial quotes like “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” and “Why the f*ck can’t I have fun all the time?” Want more?
