The star was discovered when she was only 14 when a model scout from Storm Model Management spotter her at JFK airport. Since then, Moss hasn’t been out of the magazines or off the catwalks as she became one of the most famous faces around the world.
Although she was discovered at 14, Moss got her first big break two years later when she was shot by Corinne Day for magazine ‘The Face’. The black-and-white photoshoot propelled the model to fame and she became an iconic figure of the nineties – known as the grungy anti-supermodel compared to the likes of Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell.
Since then, Kate has worked for a range of top-name designers, including the likes of Chanel, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana and Calvin Klein. She has also had ranges for Rimmel, as well as her own clothing line and make-up for Topshop. Kate also made headlines back in 2013 when she posed nude for ‘Playboy’ magazine for its 60th anniversary.
The star has had a number of high-profile relationships in the past, such as with actor Johnny Depp and later rocker Pete Doherty. She now is now married to ‘The Kills’ star Jamie Hince and has a 12-year-old daughter, Lila Grace Moss, who’s father is Kate’s former lover Jefferson Hack.
Here, I will take a look back at some of my favourite photos of the star and most memorable moments throughout her amazing 26-year career.
Happy Birthday Ms Moss!
