Kate Moss was seen stepping out in London on Thursday, after congratulating her BFF Naomi Campbell, 50, on becoming a mother.
The supermodel, 47, looked effortlessly chic during her outing to a beauty salon in Mayfair, as she paired a red polka-dot shirt with black bootcut jeans.
It comes after Naomi, who is said to have welcomed her baby via a surrogate, broke her silence on becoming a mother on Tuesday, saying she was ‘honoured and humbled’.

Shortly after sharing a picture of her baby’s feet, the 50-year-old supermodel told fans she was ‘honoured and humbled’, amid claims she’s set to raise her daughter with her ‘secret American boyfriend’.
The model is said to have welcomed her baby via a surrogate, with unearthed pictures of the star taken three weeks before her baby’s arrival showing her out in New York City – where she now lives.
Naomi spoke about motherhood as she interviewed fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg, 74, on her YouTube show No Filter with Naomi.
Interacting with fans as her YouTube recording aired, Naomi wrote on the live stream chat: ‘Hello my darlings, thank you so much for the pre birthday wishes… and for my new chapter as a mother I’m honoured and humbled.’

The fashion icon was inundated with well wishes from fans in the comment section of the video, which she also shared on Instagram.
In the interview itself, Naomi told how she used lockdown as a period of ‘reflection’ and agreed with close friend Diane when she said the pandemic had given us the opportunity to ‘think about what matters most.’
The British supermodel is living in New York and is understood to have a new boyfriend with whom she will raise the child with.
Friends yesterday told Daily Mail that they believe Naomi – who never knew her father and was raised largely by her grandmother – used a surrogate.

Sources close to the model added to The Sun that Naomi is in a ‘wonderful place’ and how it finally felt like the ‘perfect time’ to become a parent.
The insider said: ‘Naomi has really mellowed in the past year and is in a wonderful place in life.
‘She has been living in America with her boyfriend and is really happy. It finally felt like the perfect time to become a mother and she is over the moon.
‘The first lockdown allowed her to stop and take stock of the important things and she decided now was the time to properly look into starting a family.’
Naomi reportedly recently told her team that she wants to quit working over weekends, just weeks before making her baby announcement.

Naomi kept her baby news a secret from the public, but a handful of friends, family and fashion insiders were in the know.
The Vogue cover girl was pictured going about her daily business in New York while clad in a tracksuit on April 22 – her last official sighting before becoming a mother.
Just two days prior the model had made headlines when she walked in the Michael Kors runway show for Fashion Week, with audience members none the wiser that she was set to become a parent just weeks later.
Naomi announced the news on Instagram on Tuesday as she shared a picture of her newborn’s feet alongside the caption: ‘A beautiful little blessing has chosen me to be her mother.
‘So honoured to have this gentle soul in my life there are no words to describe the lifelong bond that I now share with you, my angel. There is no greater love.’
Congratulations poured in from friends including British Vogue editor Edward Enninful and fashion designer Marc Jacobs, who wrote: ‘How lucky she is and how lucky you are! What a wonderful mother you will be.’

Naomi’s best model pal Kate Moss also shared her well wishes, posting: ‘Congratulations mama @naomi’.
While the model’s mother, Valerie Morris-Campbell, who was 19 when she gave birth to the model, wrote: ‘Congratulations to my daughter Naomi on the birth of her daughter, I’m beyond thrilled as I’ve waited a long time to be grandmother.’
Naomi was last in a relationship with rapper Skepta in 2018 but enjoyed a fling with Liam Payne the following year.
She has also enjoyed high-profile relationships with the likes of Diddy, Robert De Niro, Mike Tyson and Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin over the years.
Although she is notoriously private about her love life, Naomi has previously stated she is ‘on good terms’ with her exes.
Naomi hinted at the joy to come in an interview with i-D magazine this spring.
She said: ‘2021 is going to be a great year, we’ve just got a few more bumps to get through first. I believe that this is going to be an amazing year. Actually, I don’t just believe it will be – I feel it will be.’
In 2017 she told ES magazine: ‘I think about having children all the time. But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want.’
Asked if she would have the child herself rather than adopt, she replied, ‘Maybe’, but she went on to add: ‘I do want a father figure. I think it’s important.’
In 2018, she said: ‘I’d love to have kids. I don’t discount anything in life. I love kids and always will.
‘When I’m around children, I become a child myself. That’s the little girl I don’t ever want to lose.’

Naomi wept as she told Oprah Winfrey in a 2010 television interview that she had felt ‘abandoned’ by her mother, who worked as a dancer when she was a child.
Her mother apologised to her, saying: ‘I just wanted to give her the best life. I wanted the best for her as she is my princess. I do feel that I abandoned her.’
They are good friends now and she said she has found peace at last after drug addiction and convictions for assault.
She was accused of beating her assistant Georgina Galanis in a fit of rage while they were in Toronto to shoot the film Prisoner Of Love in 1998.
A Canadian judge discharged her without a criminal record for the offence, saying she had ‘learned her lesson and demonstrated her remorse’.
She went to rehab in 1999 and later explained: ‘I took on my s*** and learned from it. I try to move on, but there are certain times when people try to use your past to blackmail you, to benefit them. That s*** I’m not going to allow.’

Another personal assistant, Vanessa Frisbee, came forward in 2000, accusing her of assault, saying she was attacked during an argument. It never came to court.
In 2006, housekeeper Ana Scolavino needed four stitches after being hit in the head by a BlackBerry phone.
Naomi pleaded guilty to assault and was ordered to complete community service and anger management classes.
In 2008, she was ejected from a BA flight following a dispute over baggage.
She pleaded guilty to assaulting a police officer, disorderly conduct and using threatening words or behaviour.

HOW DID NAOMI BECOME A MOTHER AT 50 YEARS OLD?
Naomi has not revealed the method in which she welcomed her daughter but has previously spoken about her many options for starting a family
Some mature mothers choose to have a baby via surrogacy, when someone has a baby for a couple who cannot have a child themselves.
Straight surrogacy uses the surrogates own eggs to conceive and can take place at home using artificial insemination, using an insemination kit or via a clinic using IUI or IVF with the surrogate acting a known egg donor.
Surrogacy is legal in the UK, but it’s illegal to advertise for surrogates. No financial benefit other than reasonable expenses can be paid to the surrogate.
Naomi previously hinted at looking into surrogacy when she said: ‘I think about having children all the time. But now with the way science is I think I can do it when I want.’
It is possible to adopt a child if you are over 21, a non-smoker, and have a spare bedroom.
You also need to have stopped fertility treatment if you’ve been trying to get pregnant.
People from all backgrounds and nationalities can adopt – whether you’re single or married, male or female, a homeowner or renting, straight, lesbian, gay, trans or bisexual, it doesn’t matter.
Naomi previously said she would ‘maybe’ adopt and also hinted at wanting to when she said: ‘I’ll see what the universe brings me. For now, what the universe has delivered is very much in the spirit of a chosen family.’
She added in another interview: ‘When I’m around children, I become a child myself. That’s the little girl I don’t ever want to lose.’
More mothers are waiting until later in life to have children, but pregnancy after 50 is still quite rare.
A woman’s fertility begins to decline in her early 30s. After age 35, her number of viable eggs starts to fall more quickly.
However celebrities have made headlines for having kids in their later years, including Janet Jackson who had her son, Eissa Al Mana, at age 50.
Naomi said she wanted to welcome a child with a partner, stating: ‘I do want a father figure. I think it’s important. It’s the way I feel today, sitting here talking to you’
She also hinted at wanting a traditional family set up when she announced: ‘I want the same things as every other woman: the house, the kids, the lot’
In another interview she said: ‘I’d love to have kids. I don’t discount anything in life. I love kids and always will.’
