Kate Moss: Modelling is an art


Kate Moss has said modelling isn't just about pouting

Kate Moss has claimed modelling is an art form which is very hard to do.

The 36-year-old model, mother and party lover told Company magazine posing for fashion pictures is much harder than people think and warned girls who aspired to be models it was a difficult career.

Kate said: “It’s not just a case of posing and pouting.

“It’s not just like, ‘Hold your left leg in your hand’. There’s a lot more to it. It’s like dancing. I guess you need an eye for art, and also to get it into your head that it’s not you – you’re somebody else and act like somebody else.

“Girls interested in modelling need to realise that it’s hard work. You can go to a shoot in the morning and not even start shooting until 10pm – and still be there at 5am the next day. Then if you still haven’t got the shot, you’ll have to go back the next day and start again!”

Kate, who is no longer designing her own clothes for Topshop, also revealed she might open her own modelling school.

She said: “I think I could definitely open a modelling school.

“I mean, even some of the top models I know, they don’t know. One of my best friends is a beautiful, amazing looking, gorgeous girl, but she just sees it as work. She puts the clothes on and she looks gorgeous. But you need to see it as a skill.

“You can be the most intelligent person in the world, but it won’t make you a good teacher. I’m very short and I’m completely lopsided – I’m not like those perfect, gorgeous Amazonian Brazilians. But if you learn how to work it, then that’s it!”

The January issue of Company is on sale now.
