Fashion Icon: Kate Moss

PROFILE

Born in 16.01.1974, Croydon, Greater London, Katherine Ann Moss was the face that launched, and continues to launch, a thousand trends

She was discovered in 1988 at the tender age of 14 by a scout for Storm Model Management

Her career spans over 25 years and includes campaigns with Gucci, D&G, Chanel, Calvin Klein and Rimmel London

Renowned for her waifish figure, she was one of the early faces of the controversial size zero modelling

WHAT MAKES THEM A STYLE ICON?

Kate is a 21st century supermodel and was one of the first, along with Naomi Campbell

She maintains her edgy appeal no matter what the decade, creating somewhat of a ‘need to know’ status about her

Despite her supermodel status she rarely looks head-to-toe chic in real life – I love this about her…you can take the girl out of London etc

After a career spanning over a quarter of a century she continues to contribute to fashion, with her own deigns as well as latest St Tropez campaign
