London: Kate Moss might be one of the most recognisable women in the world, but she apparently had to show her passport to gain entry at the London Fashion Week reception at Downing Street on Monday.

The 37-year-old supermodel had to brandish her official documents to get past police vetting guests arriving at the do, hosted by British Prime Minister`s wife Samantha Cameron to celebrate the UK``s fashion industry, reports a daily.

Moss had certainly scrubbed up for the occasion, looking immaculate in a black sequinned dress, with matching black jacket, tights and stilettos, with just a slash of fuchsia pink lipstick by way of colour.

Legendary photographer Mario Testino squired the star into the event just before hostess Samantha arrived back from the afternoon`s Burberry show in Kensington.

The First Lady quickly changed from her casual outfit of an Osman beige shirt-jacket, cream sill Whistles shirt, charcoal cropped trousers and Zara shoes from earlier in the day into a sleek black frock to welcome her fashionista guests for cocktails and canapes.
