Celebrities in Vintage: Kate Moss

Kate Moss was one of the first style icons to wear a lot of vintage clothing. She has the pick of every designer collection yet when she needs to wear something exceptional she usually chooses vintage. 

For her 30th birthday party in 2004, Kate wore a vintage midnight-blue sequin dress that was originally worn by Britt Ekland to the premiere of Bond movie The Man With The Golden Gun.

In 2007 she launched her first collection for Topshop, featuring vintage-inspired dresses and accessories. The 1970s-style red dress Kate wore to promote the collaboration sold out in minutes:

She favours a retro look when wearing contemporary designer clothing - this sorbet-shade dress with batwing sleeves is from Louis Vuitton's S/S14 line:

In 2009 the supermodel added to her fragrance line with a new scent -'Vintage' -  inspired by her love of vintage clothes.

Nothing makes a statement like an exquisite vintage dress. The next profile will be on Nicole Richie - a woman who loves vintage style so much she created her own retro jewellery line, House of Harlow 1960.
