Kate Moss Shops For London Fashion Week

Ever since Kate Moss got back from Paris fashion week, the model has been making at least one shopping outfit a day to the most exclusive boutiques in London.

She’s visited Notting Hill and Mayfair to browse clothing and jewellery stores and always emerged with shopping bags.

But clever Kate knows how to do things in style as she took her husband Jamie Hince to carry her shopping bags.

She also made it clear she was a supermodel with her killer outfit, perhaps inspiring staff to fuss round her, because nobody would dare to ignore someone wearing a power outfit like this.

Kate’s not modelling in any of the LFW shows this year and it’s the first year ever that she hasn’t done a collection for Tophop, but she is expected in the front row of the Burberry show in her role as an ambassador for the range.

And Very can exclusively reveal she plans to host an intimate tea party for fashion editors to show off a new handbag collection that she is developing. Now free from her Topshop contract, Kate wants to show off her own designs.

She’s a busy lady and when you’re short of time, the last thing you want to do is make small talk with shop staff. What better excuse to shop online at stores like Very?!

The model’s tailored black dress with cool sunglasses inspires a ‘don’t mess’ attitude, so Kate could go in and out and on to her next daily errand.

That included lunch in some of the smartest areas of London. At Japanese restaurant E&O on one day and at smart Mayfair eaterie and hotel Claridge’s the following day.

What makes the model an inspiration is that her outfit is striking yet simple meaning that anyone can copy it by buying some classic pieces and these are easy to find at Very.

A tan colour coat like the South reefer coat is more flattering than a harsh black coat -especially for pale winter skin – but the large collar that can be styled any way you like gives off a ‘keep-back because I’m important” vibe

Or check out the South belted coat with it’s flattering fit at the waist that will have you getting attention for all the right reasons

Kate keeps it simple with the rest of her outfit but black dresses don’t have to be boring! The new South pocket dress looks plain from a distance until you catch a sight of the pocket embellishment on the front.

The Dune jasey lace detail court shoes match both the coat and the dress

And to complete the look, every fashion diva needs a pair of gorgeous sunglasses. Raybans are the favourite of rock stars and models and you can get the stunning Rayban oval frame sunglasses at Very

For a real Kate look, finish with a hat. The Michael Jackson Fedora may seem quite extravagant for a day at the shops but Kate wears one as a sign of confidence as she can get away with anything and she knows it

No wonder Kate’s had a fashion career lasting 20 years!

Now all she needs to do is get her man Jamie Hince out of those skinny jeans and rocker boots into something more fashionable (and flattering)!
