Kate Moss stars in the new Mango campaign (jacket, 44.99, dress, 22.99, belt, 17.99)
She’s one of the most successful supermodels in the world.
But in between flying around the world for red carpet events and starring in high-end campaigns, Kate Moss has revealed she is most relaxed when she is cooking at her Cotswolds home.
The star revealed her favourite pastime during an interview to promote her current role as the face of Mango.
When asked how she likes to unwind, the Croydon-born star said:’I relax in the countriside, with all the kids around, that’s when I’m most relaxed.
‘It’s big meals and there’s usually a lot of people around.’
The newlywed mother-of-one, who turned 38 last week, is the only star of the High Street chain’s campaign – a fact not even she was aware of.
She said: ‘I didn’t even know they were doing that. I haven’t seen (the ad) yet.’
The ad, shot by Terry Richardson, is the second Kate has signed on for and is entittled ‘Spy Game’.
It sees the model trying on a veriety of outfits by the Spanish brand while a camera appears to be spying on her through the window.
Kate revealed she gets along very well with Richard and was happy to collaborate with him again.
She said: ‘There is always an undercurrent of sinister something going on with Terry, an edge to it and that’s what makes it fun.
‘Unless you get that, it would be really frustrating for him, but I do.’

The retailer has chosen the British
model for its campaign image because she embodies ‘the type of urban,
independent and confident woman’.
Kate took over from Isabeli Fontana, the face of Autumn Winter 2011.
In the past, Scarlett
Johansson, Penlope Cruz, Milla Jovovich, Lizzy Jagger, Karolina
Kurkova, Naomi Campbell, Eva Herzigova, Ins Sastre, Claudia Schiffer,
Christy Turlington and Diane Kruger have all starred in campaigns.
