Kate Moss Facts
Kate Moss rose to fame in the early ’90s, as a waifish figurehead of the controversial “heroin chic” movement in fashion.
She became one of the top-earning supermodels of all time, earning millions a year.
As part of a British Museum exhibition, a £1.5million, 100% gold statue of her was created – thought to be the biggest gold statue since Ancient Egyptian times.
Why We Love Kate Moss
Kate Moss is the girl from Croydon done good. Invariably described as waifish, elfin-face and pixie-like, the hard-partying Londoner is, however, no angel – in fact, if you believe the tabloids, she’s as dangerous and bad-ass as a girl can get. Which, obviously, only makes her seem even more appealing.
Kate’s big break came aged just 15 when she appeared on the cover of British style mag The Face. Before long she was the face (and body) of Calvin Klein, shacked up with Johnny Depp, and just about the most famous British model ever. Two decades later, she’s still an international style icon, earning mega-sized jumbo-bucks for making ordinary clothes look extraordinary. And, thankfully, she long ago ditched that sweaty human blancmange, Pete Doherty. What you thinking, Kate? Ew.
