Supermodel Kate Moss does not think she looks sexy and claims she has ever been particularly striking to men.

The 38-year-old Londoner - who has led campaigns for Topshop, Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel in her lengthy career - admits she looks “all right” now but does not think she has ever been particularly striking to men.

She said: “I wasn’t the prettiest girl in class. No breasts, short legs, gangly teeth. I didn’t think I was model material, that’s for sure.

“I think they’re all right, my looks, now. But I’ve never seen myself as sexy or a side of myself that boys would like.”

Although Moss does less runway shows than she used to, she still has admiration for a the new breed of models coming through in fashion - although her husband Jamie Hince does not always agree with her.

Discussing Lara Stone, she told the New York Times: “I think she’s very hot, with her boobs and her teeth. Though my husband says she’s not his cup of tea.”

However, she is not so keen on the style of her contemporary, Christy Turlington.

She said: “The last time I saw Christy, she was wearing a twin-set. You can think twin-set, but you can’t wear one.”
