Supermodel Kate Moss planned to wear the same pink suit donned by The Rolling Stones frontman when he performed their hit song Brown Sugar on U.K. TV music show Top of the Pops in 1971.
However, the trim British beauty failed to squeeze into the suit for a photo shoot promoting a London exhibition of paraphernalia from the group’s half a century in rock.
But the 72-year-old doesn’t blame Kate for struggling to fit into his clothes, as he thinks they might have shrunk a little over the years.
“I don’t think it’s necessarily that Kate can’t get into my clothes, I think the clothes may have changed shape more than anything,” he told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper.
However, the Jumping Jack Flash rocker admitted that he can still fit his lithe frame into the outfits he wore at the height of his music career.
“You change shape a bit when you get older, maybe you get a bit more muscly,” he said. “I am probably a bit bigger in some areas but my shape is more or less the same. I am very lucky.”
One item of clothing which won’t be on display at the Exhibitionism show at the British capital’s Saatchi Gallery is the white dress Mick wore at The Rolling Stones’ famous free concert in London’s Hyde Park in July 1969.
Mick has lost the outfit he wore at the gig at which the band played in front of more than 250,000 people two days after the death of member Brian Jones.
“I was surprised by the huge fuss at the time but in the end I lost it,” he shared. “I bought one white and one orange one at the time. I still have the orange one so I made a copy of the white.”
Also on display alongside the band’s instruments, personal diaries, posters and original stage designs will be the figure-hugging jumpsuits Mick made synonymous with his style in the 1970s.
Despite his confident stage persona he admits that he initially struggled to summon the courage to wear jumpsuits, revealing that they made him feel a little self-conscious.
“But they were so super comfortable…The one-piece thing is a great thing because you don’t have to think about if this works with this or that. You just zip it up and you’re off.”
