Kate Moss covers the January 2012 issue of Marie Claire South Africa Magazine. The 38-year-old English beauty looks radiant in red as she posed for the Mert & Marcus shot photo while interviewing about topics ranging from her current beauty product efforts and what she’s planning for the future.
On her new lipstick collection:
“My inspiration was really to create a range of easy to wear, classic shades that I have always worn and loved. I wanted colors that are classic. Beiges and pinks for day, and red – my favorite shade – for night.”
On the success of Topshop:
“I don’t think people buy these things because they want to look like me. They buy them because they know that I have an input, and that I really know about fashion, about fit.”
On her makeup range’s packaging:
“The packaging is black and just really cool and matte. I wanted to keep it simple; nothing too bling.”
On what she has planned next:
“I’m trying to do it all. I’m just going with the flow. I’m kind of mixing it up. I don’t want to get bored.”
Marc Jacobs on Kate Moss:
“Besides being physically beautiful and an incredibly charismatic and extraordinary personality, Kate is just very rare, if not totally unique. She fills space with such like, and energy really comes through in anything and everything she does.”
Michael Kors on Kate Moss:
“She is the girl who got the world dressing this way. Kate is about looking great on her way to a supermarket while looking as if she didn’t give whatever she’s wearing any thought. And that is the secret to great style. Spontaneous chic is what every woman is shooting for these days.”
