Denim maxi skirts might be enjoying a moment, but forever style plate Kate Moss is not about to get swept up in the trend cycle. Ignoring the hype around distressed hemlines and midweight washes, Moss stayed in her own lane with a floor-length skirt in—wait for it—deep purple velvet.
Walking the line between haute and Hocus Pocus, Moss styled her witchy maxi with a perfectly cut loose black vest, patent platforms, and a handful of neck chains laced with the charms and curiosities she has picked up over years of vintage shopping. Since she launched her beauty brand, Cosmoss, these myriad stacks of bohemian trinkets have become a near constant fixture around her neck. Less rock-and-roll beads—we all remember the rosary borrowed from Pete—and more earth-mother crystals, Moss’s eclectic jewelry gives an insight into her spiritual side.
This is a woman who burns frankincense in her Gloucestershire garden when she feels frazzled. A supermodel who finds time to meditate every day and worked with a homeopath and spiritual guide to formulate her new Sacred Mist eau de parfum and Golden Nectar antioxidant oil. Nowadays she’s more likely to sip her wellness-enhancing teas in front of a crime drama than take on London’s nightlife, but Moss and her velvet maxi turned out to support Nick Grimshaw and the launch of his book, Soft Lad, at Common Decency, NoMad.
Posing for the paps with friends Sadie Frost and Fran Cutler, Moss was every inch her best brand ambassador. If her radiant, sun-kissed skin isn’t an advertisement for misting and meditating, we don’t know what is. Failing that, try a maxi.
