Kate Moss Is Clueless About Why She's Such A Popular Cover Girl

It seems Kate Moss still doesn't believe her own hype.

The Croydon-born waif is the first model to be interviewed for a series of videos by SHOWstudio, looking to show fashion photography from the perspective of the subjects. And speaking to director and photographer Nick Knight, Kate is typically candid about her career, partying and her daughter Lila-Grace.

After charting her rise and rise as a model, the interview culminates in Nick pointing out her enduring appeal and the staggering number of magazines she's graced the cover of, but ever self-deprecating, Kate jokes: "I know, its weird though, innit? 'I don't understand. Let's not question it..!"

However, she is confident in the fact that she's not the party animal she's made out to be (at least not any more), as she jokes: "I'm a fabulous scapegoat. They [the press] still do it. Friends of mine still do it – 'I was out with Kate, it's her fault I'm hungover.' And I'm like, yeah right, I didn't even see you!' They'll still use me."

She also recalls some of her earliest shoots and how her iconic Corinne Day cover for The Face (featuring her smiling widely while sporting an Indian headdress) reminds her of her 11-year-old daughter Lila-Grace: "It is so cute, it reminds me [of my] daughter [she] does that smile now, her nose wrinkles up. It just seems like 100 years ago – so many lifetimes."

And she's definitely come along way, as she recalls: "I was 14, 15, still at school...-but we didn't get The Face in newsagents then in Croydon... Only a few friends saw it."
