Kate Moss:The Forever Reigning Queen of Fashion
Kate Moss was born in London on January 16, 1974. She came from a very ordinary family. Her father was a travel agent while her mother was a barmaid. She did her schooling from Ridgeway Primary School and college at Riddlesdown Collegiate. Her parents got divorced when she was just thirteen years old. At the age of 14, Kate was discovered by Sarah Doukas at JFK Airport. Sarah was the founder of Storm Model Management and also the pioneer of waif look. She created quite a stir in the modeling industry because of her boyish body that was incredibly thin as against curvy supermodels. Kate was soon widely known as waif look. The waif look was basically a “wide-eyed” look. Other than that she also made the concept of “delicate” beauty very popular.
After being met Sarah at JFK Airport, the very next year she featured on a British magazine’s cover. This was a very significant milestone for her career. Kate Moss got her fame after she appeared in Calvin Klein’s advertisement for their scent namely Obsession. She became very sought-after after doing this ad. These advertisements got mixed reviews from the audience since they featured her extremely thin partially nude body. Many people found her too skinny, and she even got comments that she can be having an eating disorder. However, these comments did not affect her career, and she kept climbing the ladder of success from there.
Kate Moss featured in advertisements and worked with for many top fashion houses, photographers and designers such as Christian Dior, Rimmel, Gucci, Calvin Klein and Chanel. She has appeared on more than 300 magazine covers during her career. These magazines include ‘The Vogue’, ‘Vanity Fair’, ‘W’ and ‘The Face’. Other than this, she also worked in many music videos and albums. She established herself very well and soon became one of the world’s most popular and leading fashion model. She joined the league of supermodels such as Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer in the 90’s.
Over the period of time, Kate has been in many controversies such as been a heroin and cocaine user, being in lesbian affairs, having anorexia and such. However, she has always maintained that these are nothing but ridiculous claims. Kate Moss loves her privacy, highly guides her personal life and rarely gives interviews.
Other than modeling, Kate also is interested in other activities like literature, arts and music. She has appeared in movies like Inferno, Blackadder: Back and Forth, The Four Dreams of Miss X and Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie. She has received Special Recognition Award, Glamour Award for Entrepreneur and NME Award for Hottest Woman. Kate started her own clothing line in 2006 by tying up with clothing retailer Topshop.
Kate had been in a relationship with Pete Doherty who was the lead singer of Babyshambles band, had been engaged to Johnny Depp in 90’s, and she then married Jamie Hince in 2011. She had a daughter named Lila Grace with Jefferson Hack, her ex-bf.nNobody wears clothes like Kate Moss does, especially on the ramp or on the red carpet. Nothing ever goes wrong with her.
Now this is the je ne sais quoi bohemian touch to the classic black. Having the black feather raven jacket already, it is a rather strange choice to pair it with the crisp printed long skirt, but hey, Kate makes even the unconventional choices look marvelous.
Ah, the signature Kate look from the 90s, at the start of her stellar modeling career. While always being different from the classic model gang (with the likes of Claudia Schiffer, also pictured here) she was the sensual waifish figure, dominating the runways. The crisp halter stripe dresses were her favorite choice back to the day, resembling the sexiest nightdresses.
The goddess of fashion and the epitome of the modern Aphrodite; the essence caught in one single photo. She must have proven to whole Cannes who is the best dressed person for ages here. She mastered this beautiful red dress with elegant diamond earrings and romantic hair up do, finished with signature smoky eyes.
This is a very typical dress designed by Narciso Rodriguez. The dress was grey marl shift which she had paired with chandelier earrings. It was very plain, and on anyone else, the dress may not have looked good, but it did on Kate. The way she was groomed, made her look stunning.
This dress was designed by Kate Moss herself and the Topshop design team. The dress was cocktail length and Flapper Style. It had more than 60,000 Swarovski crystal beads of dove grey, antique green and silver. The dress was estimated to be around 40,000 Euros.
This event was hosted by Kate Moss and Marc Jacobs. She looked gorgeous in Marc Jacobs designed mini dress and had finished the look by pairing a matching metallic turban that was designed by Stephen Jones and high heels.

Kate wore an Alexander McQueen black leather sexy dress that had layered pleated skirt to British Fashion Awards which she paired with white fur coat, a studded clutch and pumps. She was one of the few that carried coats to an event, but she simply nailed that look.
.Kate Moss showed off her legs in a mini printed silk Alexander McQueen kimono styled dress. The dress featured a red, cream and black colored designed and she paired it with Christian Louboutin black heels.
This is the classic way how black gets done by Moss. She mixed and matched perfectly the classic leather stilettos with the rock n’ roll biker jacket. The neutral item is surely the dress that goes pretty much with everything. Bravo!
This photo showcases how basic, everyday outfits are amped up to the max with high heel boots. Kate Moss is aware of that perfectly. She didn’t need anything more spectacular than an evergreen black blazer and delicately printed baggy pants to look stunning.
So you got sick of the black ensemble and want to liven it up a little bit? Kate has the perfect hint; Just throw a glamorous black and white leopard coat over it, you’ll suit the changing weather and the fashion judges.
She looked very chilled out in this outfit which was a mini-dress with a furry jacket. She wore a thick belt over it.
Kate Moss wore leather trousers with a David Bowie tee, glittery shoes and a black fur jacket. This was indeed a very elegant yet casual look.
In the end
Thus, Kate has her own charm that can work like magic. She is a fashion icon, a mystery and very charming. Her place in the fashion industry that she has craved for her can never be replaced.
