Kate Moss stumbles through speech at awards ceremony

Kate Moss struggled to present a fashion award as she fumbled her words and lost her trail of thought at a glitzy New York ceremony.

The iconic supermodel, 48, was presenting her friend and Yves Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello with a Fashion Innovator award at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

New footage from the Wall Street Journal ceremony held on Wednesday shows Moss in a sheer olive dress approaching the podium.

In her trademark husky voice she says “Good evening ladies and gentlemen” then appears to forget her words before taking an awkward pause to check her phone.

She continues: “Anthony and I have worked together... for years. Ever since he started at Saint Lauren I could see his instinct for fashion... and I wanted to be part of that.”

She finishes her speech quickly to rapturous applause at the glitzy ceremony.

The model, told ES Magazine recently says she is “the happiest I’ve ever been” after swapping her party lifestyle for early nights.

She said : “My happy place was being on a dance floor, that was my absolute idea of happiness. I still love being on the dance floor, but now I want to wake up feeling fresh.

“I want to wake up and do Pilates or yoga. I love the mornings. Looking forward to getting up in the morning is quite new to me and I do get genuinely excited about it.

“I think I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. Part of this is being in control of my own career. Having my own agency, I can decide what I want to do and what I don’t, making my own choices.”
