  • The Topshop boss thinks his model partner is one clever lady - and this is why...

    Kate Moss is one of the world’s most recognised – and most successful – supermodels.

    She’s the walked in countless runway shows, landed a wide range of high-end campaigns and become a British icon.

    And now Topshop entrepreneur Sir Philip Green is revealing why his favourite model was able to push herself to the top of the fash pack.

    ‘The bottom line is this: she manages herself well,’ he said in an interview with the Evening Standard. ‘She’s been smart, she understands the fashion business, she doesn’t go talking everywhere. And she hasn’t run off and put her name on everything.’

    Of course, she has put her name on a few key brands – including Rimmel London, Alexander McQueen, Carphone Warehouse and St. Tropez.

    But the one brand that Sir Philip Green is concerned with is his very own Topshop.

    The 40-year-old supermodel first teamed up with her businessman pal in 2007, launching her first collection for Topshop. She released her second collection for the brand in 2010.

    That means we’ve been waiting four long years for more of Kate’s totally wearable high street fashions. Thankfully, that wait is almost over.

    And Sir Philip Green’s comments on her new Topshop collection – set for release later this year – have us even more excited than before.

    ‘The campaign images are the best we’ve ever had,’ he said. ‘She’s tried on every single piece.’
