It’s a rare thing indeed to hear Britain’s most famous model actually speak – she was famously tight-lipped for the first 20 years of her career - but, as spokesperson for the high street brand, actually speaking is part of the deal.

She names her agent (Sarah Doukas at Storm) as her guardian angel and describes John Galliano’s shows as being, ‘like magic. Like theatre’.
She is also quizzed on what it feels like to be constantly referred to as a fashion icon. ‘I don’t really think about it,’ she says. ‘If I thought about it, I wouldn’t be able to get up in the morning. I just wear what I feel like wearing.’
And she revealed what she’ll be doing this weekend to celebrate another of our nation’s fashion icon’s big days. Residents of Little Farringdon in the Cotswolds, beware: La Moss will be marking the royal occasion at a ‘country fair jubilee with bunting’. She'll be the one next to the Coronation chicken sandwiches, wearing a tiara.
