Maintaining her stylish appearance, the catwalk queen teamed her longline coat with black wide-leg trousers and a low-cut blouse, while accessorising with chandelier earrings.

The blonde beauty styled her tresses into a straight fashion and opted for minimal make-up to display her naturally radiant complexion.

Socialite James looked effortlessly cool in a grey T-shirt, a velvet blazer and a trendy trilby.

The pair engaged in a cosy conversation as they walked through the terminal arm-in-arm.

Copy Kate with a velvet and pearl jacket by Gucci

She's the ultimate style icon, so whatever Kate Moss has in her wardrobe, you can bet your bottom dollar we want it too!

That's especially true of this incredibly opulent velvet coat by Gucci. From the plush fabric to the pearl embellished trim and jewel buttons, it's one of the most luxurious jackets we've ever seen.

Admittedly, the price-tag does reflect that... ringing in at just under a whopping 4K, it ain't exactly cheap!

It has now sold out, but you can still buy the shorter (and slightly cheaper!) version at NET-A-PORTER by clicking the image on the right.

Alternatively, we've rounded up the best Gucci-esque cover-ups from the likes of Shrimps and SilkFred so you can channel major Mossy vibes.

Kate's outing comes as it was reported by The Sun that she is planning to launch her own London-based fashion label to rival Victoria Beckham's.

A source claimed that the fashion favourite is planning to have Lila Grace, 16, as the face of her brand, five years after releasing her final collaboration with Topshop.

The source said: 'Kate's label is called Rockeens and this is her Victoria Beckham move.

'It's mostly rock-inspired silk dresses and leather jackets - basically her 'look' and aimed mass market so everyone can buy it

'She's involved in the designing but just not the technical side. Lila Grace will be the face of it and it's due out before Christmas.'

MailOnline contacted representatives for Kate and Lila Grace Moss for comment at the time of publication.
