Kate Moss. biography

NAME:Kate Moss BIRTH DATE:January 16, 1974 (Age: 40) PLACE OF BIRTH:Addiscombe, Croydon, UK

Born on January 16, 1974, in London, England, Kate Moss’s stunning beauty was first discovered while at New York’s JFK airport at the mere age of 14. A year later, Moss made her professional modeling debut on the cover of a British magazine.

Moss’ big break came in 1993, when she was featured topless in an advertisement campaign for Calvin Klein’s perfume Obsession. Despite many critics pulling focus to her weight, even suggesting she suffered from an eating disorder, the young model continued making a name for herself.

That same year, she appeared in People magazine’s Most Beautiful issue before taking a break due to exhaustion in 1998.

In 1999, Moss returned to the modeling world in a runway show for Versace, a comeback met with applause in part of her healthier look.

Moss was again put in the negative spotlight when she was accused of promoting a thin frame by encouraging women to invest in skinny jeans in 2004, a trend that immediately dominated the runway soon after.

In 2005, Moss’ career took a major hit after a photo of her snorting cocaine was plastered on the front page of the Daily Mirror. The successful model, however, refused to let the incident ruin her career and checked into Arizona’s Meadow clinic. A few months later, she reemerged in a shoot with Roberto Cavalli in Spain followed by receiving the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Icon Award.

A year later, Moss was featured in multiple advertisement campaigns for famous fashion brands such as Burberry and Chanel. In 2007, she was named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World and introduced her clothing line for Topshop. She then appeared on the 2008 cover of Vogue magazine.
