British supermodel Kate Moss is adamant life really does begin at 40 as she feels like a new woman since reaching the milestone this year (14).

The blonde beauty marked her birthday in January (14) and said goodbye to her 30s with a star-studded party in London and a vacation on Sir Richard Branson's Caribbean island.

However, the catwalk queen is adamant middle age is not fazing her and she actually feels better since her birthday.

Moss tells The Sunday Times Style magazine, "(Turning 40 was) great. The best. I feel good. I turned 40 and I felt more comfortable in my skin, probably more comfortable than I ever have. It's an actual feeling. I'm still nervous at times, but not as nervous... Everything is kind of... it's all right, actually. Marriage, motherhood, work."
