Kate Moss on Party Makeup, Morning-After Beauty Tricks, and Starring in Charlotte Tilbury’s New Studio 54-Inspired Campaign

It’s been quite the year for Kate Moss. From stealing the spotlight at Paris Fashion Week to launching her Cosmoss wellness line and (at long last) sharing her beauty secrets, her influence only grows more powerful with time. And since exploding onto the scene in the ’90s, the supermodel, entrepreneur, and style icon has counted makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury as a close personal friend.

“We met in 1998 at my first Dazed shoot! Charlotte was booked for makeup,” Moss tells Vogue of their first encounter on set. “We’ve worked on countless covers, campaigns, runways, and red carpets over the years—and enjoyed more than a few parties together!”

Today, Tilbury announces Moss as the face of her Studio 54-inspired holiday collection. Dripping in sequins and lamé, Moss stars in the campaign alongside actor Lily James and supermodels Twiggy and Jourdan Dunn. She calls it “the ultimate celebration.” It is, after all, a modern take on her own iconic 30th-birthday look.

In an exclusive interview with Vogue, Moss talks personal beauty icons, taking glam rock inspiration from T. Rex frontman Marc Bolan, and the chilled-out afterparty secrets she’s learned along the way.
