Moss re­grets ‘noth­ing tastes as good as skinny feels’ line

The Daily Telegraph - - News -

KATE MOSS has said she re­grets her trade­mark com­ment that “noth­ing tastes as good as skinny feels”.

The model was 35 when she made the re­mark to WWD, the fash­ion news web­site, and it caused up­roar at a time when cam­paign­ers were fight­ing to abol­ish stick-thin mod­els.

When asked if she had any mantras, Moss said: “There are loads of mot­tos. There’s ‘noth­ing tastes as good as skinny feels’. That’s one of them.”

Nine years since ut­ter­ing the phrase, Moss, who in­spired the “heroin chic” look, spoke to NBC about the quote, which she re­ferred to as a “jin­gle”.

“My friend used to say it,” she told the in­ter­viewer. “Be­cause, you know, we were all liv­ing to­gether, and we’d go for the biscuits and go, ‘Oh, noth­ing tastes as g…’ It’s a lit­tle jin­gle.”

Speak­ing about her in­dus­try to­day, Moss said: “There’s so much more di­ver­sity now, I think it’s right. There’s so many dif­fer­ent sizes and colours and heights. Why would you just be a one-size model and be­ing rep­re­sented for all of these peo­ple?”

Moss, now 44, said as a young model she faced many pres­sures. “I worked with a woman pho­tog­ra­pher called Corinne Day, and she al­ways liked me with no top on, and I did not like it at all when I first started,” she said.

“I wouldn’t let my daugh­ter do it. She’s 15 and to think I was go­ing top­less at her age, it’s crazy.”

Kate Moss was crit­i­cised at the time for en­cour­ag­ing eat­ing dis­or­ders
