Giving international press a sneak peek into her coveted closet, Kate Moss answered every woman’s dream as she sat down with stylist Zoe Bedeaux and Scott Wimsett to discuss beauty tips, her favourite Rimmel memories and how some of her iconic fashion pieces served as inspiration for her new 15th Anniversary Collection.
A selected few of beauty journalists, bloggers and influencers were invited to enter an iconic London house for an afternoon of all things Kate and Rimmel London. As an introduction guests were invited to enjoy bespoke manicures with Kate’s new Supergel nail polish shades by Global Rimmel Manicurist Adam Slee as well as participate in the life-long red vd nude lipstick beauty debate. Once their nails were on par, guests were then led upstairs to meet Rimmel Global Makeup Artist Kirstin Piggott for the ultimate lipstick master class inspired by some of Kate’s most iconic red and nude lip looks.
To bring the afternoon to a beautiful end, Kate Moss invited press into her closet to discover the iconic outfits that served as inspiration to create a collection of her favourite red and nudes. Kate and press discussed how fashion has inspired her lipstick shades and collections, as well as sharing some of her best beauty tips and secrets and favourite Rimmel memories.
Kate says: “I’m incredibly proud of my 15 year relationship with Rimmel. It’s a brand very close to my heart; my first ever lipstick was Rimmel Heather Shimmer. The partnership has strengthened and evolved over the years, with me taking an actively creative role. The new anniversary collection echoes some of my favourite London looks from the last decade and a half. I’ve focused on reds and nudes because they’re the colours I love to wear – each shade reflects a different side of me.”
