Kate Moss turns 40 today. While it may sound horrifying to those of you born after 1990, here’s the thing: 40 isn’t so bad. As someone who has a bit of experience in this area — two years’ worth, as a matter of fact — I’m here to tell you that 40 has a lot of advantages. You’re more financially stable, people take you more seriously when you speak, you’re more confident in everything from your style to your decision-making skills and you generally just give a lot less f*cks than you used to about what people think of you.
But. The physical changes aren’t quite so empowering. While Kate no doubt has access to some of the best beauty and skin care gurus in the universe, I’m sure she’d still appreciate some insight about what to expect in her 40s. Since Kate Middleton probably really benefited from the new mom advice I gave her after Prince George was born, I thought I’d pass on some of my hard-won wisdom to Mossy as she enters a whole new world of sagging, weird hairs and never-ending hangovers.
