Supermodel Kate Moss led the smart set in London to give a helping hand to her "best friend", make-up artist to the stars Charlotte Tilbury.

The 39-year-old was at an event in Selfridges department store with top actors such as Helena Bonham Carter and Dominic West, and fashionistas such as photographer Mario Testino.

They were there for the unveiling of a new portrait of the model by photographer Chris Levine, who famously portrayed the Queen in a pensive pose in 2004, and to launch a week of make-up activities at the store based on Tilbury's work.

Croydon-born beauty Moss hugged Tilbury, who did the make-up for her July 2011 wedding to guitarist Jamie Hince, before they posed for photographers with Levine.

Asked about her plans for the summer, the blonde beauty revealed she will be heading to Glastonbury festival to see the Rolling Stones.

Speaking about Moss, who she described as "one of my best friends", Tilbury said: "I adore her, she is godmother to my son.

"She is just such an inspiration - she is naughty and fun and bright and professional, so incredibly hard-working, such an iconic face.

"She can morph into so many different people. We have literally made her everyone from Marilyn Monroe to Marlene Dietrich to grunge.

"When she is in front of the camera she just lights it up, she moves in such a chameleonic, incredible way.

"She is the face of a generation."
