Kate speaks out on anorexia jibes

Kate Moss has given a rare interview speaking about accusations she was an anorexia role model in the 90s.

The usually fiercely-private model told Allure magazine how it felt to be under scrutiny about her weight in her 90s heyday.

Kate, whose heavy, eyeliner look coined the term "heroin chic", said: "It was horrible, especially the anorexic thing. The heroin, I was like, 'Oh, it's just ridiculous I don't do heroin. Just because I wear a bit of black eyeliner that's smudged...'

"But the anorexic thing was a lot more upsetting, to be held responsible for somebody's illness. I wasn't anorexic."

The supermodel, 39, also spoke about daughter Lila-Grace, 10, who she usually keeps out of the public eye.

"She's watched The Devil Wears Prada 10 times, and she's got a desk in her room with a phone," she revealed. "She puts a little outfit on and picks up the phone: 'Hello, Miranda Priestly's office.' I say, 'Lila, do you know who Miranda Priestly is in real life?'

"But she just doesn't care. She's like, 'Hello, Miranda Priestly's office. Can you hold? Patrick Demarchelier on the line!' I died when I heard her do it. So funny. She doesn't have a clue who she is, but it's word for word."
