Kate Moss

We were thinking about writing a post dedicated to Kate for a long time and finally It's been realized as her birthday was only two days ago!

The fact that we would like to have the whole post about her is because she's an exceptional person, and what's more she's British and fabulous!

Kate Moss (Katherine Ann Moss) was born 16 January 1974 in Addiscombe, Croydon, London. She is an English model who have appeared on over 50 magazine covers and in magazine spreads. Kate Moss is especially known for her trademark slim figure, prominent cheek bones, high-profile relationships and party lifestyle.

If you didn't know her and have seen her for the first time you wouldn't say she's a model material. She's only 5 ft 7.5 in (1.72 m) and doesn't really have a face of a model (especially at the times when she was starting her career - early 90s). The thing that helped her to get into modelling is definietely her personality.


Moss was discovered in 1988 at the age of 14 by Sarah Doukas, the founder of Storm Model Management, at JFK Airport in New York City, after a holiday in the Bahamas. Moss's career began when Corinne Day shot black-and-white photographs of her, styled by Melanie Ward, for British magazine The Face when she was 16, in a photo shoot titled "The 3rd Summer of Love". Moss then went on to become the "anti-supermodel" of the 1990s in contrast to the "supermodels" of the moment, such as Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell, who were known for their curvaceous and tall figures.

Being a famous and desirable model she had a drug problems what caused the big brands to remove her from their campaigns. But she managed to came back. And this is another reason she is an exceptional person and a model. What's more she managed to have her own brand - Top Shop which is doing very well. 
A £1.5m ($2.8m) 100% gold statue was made of Moss in 2008 as part of a British Museum exhibition. Entitled Siren, the 50 kg (110 lb) hollow statue was made by Marc Quinn, who described Moss as "the ideal beauty of the moment". The statue is said to be the largest gold statue to be created since the era of Ancient Egypt.
Quinn had previously unveiled a painted-bronze, life-size sculpture of Moss in a contorted yoga pose, titled Sphinx.

Knowing the story of Kate you should be more confident about yourselves! And even if you don't look like the super models nowadays it doesn't mean that by entering into the industry you will change the pattern and the way models should look like!
