Kate Moss

Kate Moss

At 5ft 6 and with a waif figure, Kate Moss was hardly the epitome of what was considered model material. In the 90s she burst onto the modeling scene, and she was exactly what was needed to balance out the taller more curvaceous models.

With her ethereal beauty, Kate Moss is one of the most recognized faces in the world. You may not know her name but you have seen her face promoting campaigns for the likes of Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton among others. She has graced over 300 magazine covers in her modeling career.

Born in the outer London suburb of Croydon, Kate was spotted as most models of that time were, in JFK airport. She starred in her first major campaign famously with Mark Walberg for Calvin Klein.

Her rise into Supermodel status was sullied by her excesses. Photographed taking cocaine in 2005, Kate was famously dropped from promoting and had a hard time getting work.No one wanted a cocaine user representing their brands. A stint in rehab and a public apology allowed Kate to enter the fold of the Model elite, and by the fall of 2006 , she had so many campaigns going on that some were saying that she was over exposed.

Her line of clothes at H & M stores have proven to be wildly successful in the United Kingdom. With a limit of how much can be tried on at one time (Only eight items) and a limit on how much can be bought at one time. In spite of the restrictions her line can already be found on eBay.

Kate has one child with rocker Jefferson Hack.
