There's no telling whether Kate Moss has seen the "There's Only One Kate In London" meme (we'd like to think that she has, and likes it) but she did offer her thoughts on the other Kate in a very funny interview with the Telegraph.
The Telegraph's Bryony Gordon got the chance to talk to the usually reticent Kate Moss at a press event for Mango. While the nature of Moss' partnership with Mango was unclear at the time of the interview (was she doing a collaboration with Mango, a la Topshop? Gordon mused), a release out today reveals that the Spanish mass retailer partnered with the supermodel and Terry Richardson to produce a special video that aired before the Mango's fall show last night in Paris. (The video hasn't yet been released so that us regular folks who didn't get to attend the show can see what all the fuss was about but we'll post it as soon as it's out.)
Gordon, nervous to meet and talk to Kate Moss (she calls her "most famous British woman on the planet bar the Queen and the Duchess of Cambridge"), hilariously brings some jam and cigarettes as gifts to soften her up (Kate makes jam, remember?). I think it worked. Here are the highlights: On the royal wedding and the other Kate: "Oh I love her! She was so chic and seamless. And just beautiful, it was just as a royal wedding should be." She watched the wedding, "In the country, with loads of friends and kids who were all crying. There were tears. We were like 'ok, you can marry Harry!'"
On being made a dame for her contributions to the fashion industry: "Ha ha. Can you imagine? I'm too young to be made a Dame. A Dame's for old women. Like Margaret Thatcher...I'd quite like to be Lady Kate. But I'm happy just as I am."
On goals she's yet to achieve: "Well I wasn't in [George Michael's] Freedom video… I just missed it. That would have been amazing."
And to tide you over while we wait for the Kate Moss/Terry Richardson video, here's footage from Mango's blinged out fall show at Paris' Centre Pompidou last night. Yes, the models actually came up on escalators.
