Kate Moss has long been known as fashion’s “great Sphinx,” thanks to spending the better part of the 1990s completely silent. That changed a bit when she started to brand herself and do things like design capsule collections for TopShop–but she still doesn’t speak much for someone as famous as she is.
Which makes her reading excerpts from Fifty Shades of Grey especially delightful. The supermodel was attempting to raise money for Red Nose Day (which helps out the poor, the homeless and victims of domestic abuse) and teamed up with her Radio 1 DJ buddy Nick Grimshaw. To encourage listeners to donate, Kate promised to read a portion of the infamous erotic bestseller upon reaching a goal of $200,000.
…The rest, as they say, is history.
Please enjoy Kate the Great reading Fifty Shades of Grey–looking absolutely stunning in minimal makeup and unfussy hair (and please also appreciate just how nice her voice is).
