"Never complain, never explain."
That is Kate Moss's motto, particularly regarding Johnny Depp, whom she had a brief, yet intense romance with in 1994.
Moss is Allure magazine's August cover girl, and while she clearly prefers not to relive the past and discuss Depp details, she does open up about which tabloid rumors have hurt her the most over the years.
“It was horrible, especially the anorexic thing," the 39-year-old explains. "The heroin [being dabbed ‘Heroin Chic’] 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.”
The English beauty is currently married to musician Jamie Hince and has one daughter, Lila Grace, from a previous relationship. Apparently Lila, 10, is developing her mother's fascination with fashion.
"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," Moss recounts. "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."
As for Kate's approach to fashion and beauty, she makes it pretty clear.
"I try to be a little bit chic, I wouldn't wear sweatpants. I wouldn't wear a twinset," she tells Allure, adding she has one rule in particular: "Always clean hair. That's a must. If in doubt, wash it."
One thing Kate approves of that might surprise you is tan lines (just in one area in particular, though):
"I don't mind a bikini bottom. My husband likes lines on the bum—men like white bums… I try not to have a white boob."
Gotta love those Moss-isms!
