To say we are excited about the upcoming Kate Moss for Topshop launch would be the understatement of the year. So to celebrate Kate’s return we thought we’d ask you, yes YOU, how Moss’s style has inspired your own.

We’re on the hunt for one US and one UK winner – so get posting! Because we’re nice we’ve brainstormed our favourite Moss style moments to inspire you in your quest to win. Enjoy….
The ‘90s backlash against ‘80s excess was a whirlwind of leather, oversize band tees and devil-may-care attitude. Our Kate was in the eye of the storm with a beautiful boyfriend and perfectly tousled locks. Has there ever been a more powerful pairing? Kate’s grunge look consisted of trainers, worn biker jackets and big chunky boots. But every style decade has a flip side. Kate brushed up for the red carpet in rare vintage and simple Calvin Klein shift dresses.
Kate is literally the Queen of festival fashion. We love her flagrant disregard for trifling concerns such as rain and mud. Sure, maybe if we had a luxury trailer to hand, perhaps we’d find it easier to wear high-heeled knee boots trawling Glastonbury’s sludge-soaked banks. But hey, Kate’s always been deliciously rebellious and in the case of festivals, she flouts the weather. Our favourite looks include micro mini shorts teamed with bronze sequins, high shine PVC skinnies and anything with feathers!
KM is a big fan of dress-up and so are we. From her 30th birthday star spangled jumpsuit to top-hatted gothic Halloween garb, Moss knows how to rock a costume. We’re not so sure we’ll be recreating her rumoured Gypsy-themed hen do, but we did have a major crush on her posh yuppie get-up for pal Fran Cutler’s birthday bonanza.
The wedding to end all weddings
When Kate married rocker Jamie Hince her wedding photos graced the pages of Vogue. We could only look on in awe – has there ever been a more perfect wedding? John Galliano’s wedding dress was the ideal combination of English rose and bohemian spirit. We doubt there’s a bride ‘moodboard’ in existence without her iconic image.
If there’s one craze Kate’s started it’s the fashion pack’s love for finding beautiful vintage gems. Our favourite of the supermodel’s vintage looks include the floor length cream satin gown she wore in 2007 to the V&A’s Golden Age of Couture Gala and the buttercup yellow tea dress that’s inspired her designs for Topshop. Early in her career Kate was known to scour the best vintage stores in New York and Paris to add to her burgeoning collection.
