Supermodel Kate Moss

Kate Moos biography

Kate Moss, who has become one of the most recognized and highest-paid supermodels of the nineties, Kate was born in Croydon, Surrey, England, on the 16th of January 1974.

Her entry into the fashion industry started in 1988 when Kate and her family were at John F. Kennedy airport on their way back from a holiday in the Bahamas. The then 14-year-old Kate caught the eye of Sarah Ducas of Storm Agency, who approached Kate Moss.

This chance encounter was the launching pad of her successful career. Presently signed with three different modeling agencies - Women in New York, Marilyn in Milan, and Storm in London, she has become one of the most photographed supermodels to date.

Her first modeling job was a topless appearance on the cover of the British magazine The Face. Since then, it's evident that Kate Moss has remained abreast in her modeling career. The long list of magazine covers she has graced includes Allure and Harper's Bazaar in the US; Arena, Elle, and The Face in the UK; American, British, British, Australian, Italian, and Brazilian editions of Vogue.

If someone would not recognize Kate from the slew of magazine covers, they surely would from all the advertisements she has appeared in. Kate has practically become a staple in Calvin Klein ads, such as those for fragrances Obsession, CK Be, and CK One.

In addition to Calvin Klein ads, Kate has also appeared in advertisements for Burberry, Cerruti 1881, De Beers Simple Diamond, Dolce and Gabbana, Gianni Versace, L'Oreal, and Yves Saint Laurent.

Kate has also strutted her stuff down the catwalks for such big-name designers as Calvin Klein, Chanel, and Versace. Audiences have yet to see the last of Kate Moss. She also appeared on the small screen in a documentary entitled Models Close-Up; French and Saunders, a comedy series on the BBC; MTV's Fashionably Loud and Choose or Lose campaign; a British Mercury Mobile Phones ad; and Calvin Klein television ads.

In keeping with the tradition of supermodels being cast in music videos, such as Linda Evangelista and Helena Christensen, Kate Moss won the prize for the most music video appearances. She has been in Johnny Cash's "Delia's Gone," Primal Scream's "Kowalski," and Elton John's "The Way You Look Tonight." To make her career even more complete, Kate Moss also appeared in films such as Isaac Mizrahi's Unzipped and Christy Turlington's Catwalk.

Also leaving her mark in the publishing world, Kate released a book entitled Kate: The Kate Moss Story, a collection of her favorite pictures of herself. Although her career has been multi-faceted, not all have been a rosy story.

She is mainly known for her unhealthy image, so Kate checked into the Priory Clinic to kick her severe drug and alcohol habit. Having been linked to fellow partier Johnny Depp for 4 years, Kate also dated Calvin Klein photographer Mario Sorrenti.

Winner of the VH1 award for the model of the year in 1996.

Kate Moss is unquestionably one of the most successful models of the 90s, earning $10,000 daily. Last but not least - Kate Moss became a mother to Lola (October 2002).
