"Angela Buttolph has distilled the essence of the 'Kate effect' into a new book. Read and blindly follow" (Grazia)
"Just like the Croydon gal herself, this is seriously cool" (Closer)
"It is hard not to be drawn into the Moss magic. This book showcases her style at its finest hour. Page after page, the beautiful, glossy pictures of Moss shine, proving the true icon she really is, and probably always will be...I found it so enjoyable that, although I initially thought of it as a posh coffee table book with some great pictures, I ended up carting it around in my handbag and reading it on every Tube journey until it was finished. Kate Moss fans, fashionistas, and gossip girls alike will all enjoy this book, as it really spells out Kate's style formulas" (London Lite)
"Read about Kate's effect on our wardrobes. It'll be hard to put down" (Look)
"When this book hit the heat style desk, a rare thing happened, we were reduced to reverential silene for a good 20 minutes. Scanning through the photographs from Kate's childhood to the present day was such a visual treat that we would probably give this book five stars for the pictures alone. With quotes and reminiscences from Kate's friends and industry insiders, this thesis on style does give you a genuine window into the model's world. A must" (heat)

This instead follows Kate's life from the now infamous early discovery at the age of 14 to the present. Some of the early photos are fascinating and certainly I had never seen them before. This then follows Kate through early career, the peak of super-stardom, and her moves into design and retailing since.
It is pretty heavy too on her relationships: Johnny Depp, Jefferson Hack, Pete Docherty and Jamie Hince - and, of course, the photos that accompany each man.
So not quite a glossy coffee-table tome, but not quite a biography either. The photos are beautiful as we would expect, but the many, many quotes from friends simply repeating the fact that KM has perfect and unexpected fashion sense wore a little thin by page 190...
I also expected Buttolph to be a bit more spiky in her assessments as she is in her journalism. Kate is perennially beautiful and of course is a classic fashion icon, but there are times when her style simply stagnates (trashy too-short hot-pants? The perpetual skinny jeans, rock tee and blazer with ballet flats/boots?) and Buttolph indicates this by calling it a `uniform' but maintains an almost hagiographical attitude all the same.
But overall this is a compelling retrospective of Kate over the last twenty years, and the photos and attitude they convey are inspirational.
But, I read the whole book from cover to cover. And it was not only a great read, it has completely changed my outlook on clothes and shopping. There is something infectious about Kates love of clothes - not clothes for clothes sake, but textures and shapes and the way clothes make you feel.
The book doesn't set out to tell you how to dress like Kate, but it did a brilliant job of conveying the mind-set of Kate. And its one I plan to adopt!
I have just ordered another copy for a friend who I know will get as much out of it as I did. You just can't go wrong with this one.
The author did a really thorough job at finding out about Kate's style which is basically all about having an eye for things and integrating them to make them your own. And that's what great style is about.
`Kate Moss: Style' is thoroughly researched, readable and inspirational. Buy this book!
