    Default Kate Moss's fashion formula

    Kate Moss knows clothes, and over the years she has developed her own fashion formula.

    She may be the ultimate rule-breaker, but when it comes to her style,

    Kate follows a strict set of 10 'dos and don'ts' that she has stuck to religiously

    1. Do denim edgily


    For Moss, jeans are a major style statement, not a no-brainer slob-out basic. Often, making the biggest statement means choosing a style no one else is wearing yet (Moss wore her high-waisted Ghost jeans when everyone else was just getting the hang of emulating her low-waisted skinnies - and the denim devotees soon switched over and followed Moss's lead). Last week, Moss was spotted in Balmain's bold zebra-print boot-cut jeans - think on

    2. Make it look effortless


    Wear your cocktail dress loosely belted; don't brush your hair for the red carpet; wear teenage black kohl eyeliner; hack off hemlines with a pair of scissors; buy vintage clothes and accessories that are already a little beaten up. Moss never looks like she's trying too hard which makes it all look effortless, and cool, and fun, and young, and sexy. Take note, Victoria Beckham

    3. Go for quality


    Other than wearing her own Topshop label, Moss rarely shops on the high street. When she was a skint teenager she would buy second-hand cashmere polo necks, silk 1930s nightgowns and original 1940s tailoring from Portobello market. Real vintage clothes can still offer a quality of fabric and cut that no longer exists, and at a fraction of modern designer price tags

    4. Be a dress-code rebel


    If there's one sneaky style trick that always guarantees Moss is the centre of attention, it's this: she'll wear the exact opposite of what is expected. From a grey, pared-down knee-length shift dress on the red carpet to tight leather trousers and a tuxedo jacket at the strictly-black-tie Metropolitan Ball in New York, Moss disregards the dress code and yet somehow manages to make everyone else feel like they're the ones who got it wrong

    5. Keep prints timeless


    A cotton shirt in a pale blue cowboy plaid, a foxy ocelot-print jacket, classic stripy tops (thin and French, or wide and punky), 40s-style floral dresses, a glam-rock star pattern blouse ... Moss keeps her prints simple and classic. She rarely wears a designer's print of the season, or unusual or stylised modern patterns. This is the key to her timeless style
