Kate Moss (born in London, England on January 16, 1974) is one of the world’s most famous supermodels and fashion icons of all time! She is known for gracing the front covers of fashion magazines, snagging campaigns with the most elite designers, and for popularizing the “heroin chic” looks of the 1990’s. Kate began her modeling career at age 14, and quickly became an instant sensation. Her ultra thin figure and willingness to pose nude has always been a topic of controversy, especially in the 90’s when she became the opposite of curvaceous and tall models at that time. Kate has become a style icon of the 21st century by popularizing the “boho chic” style. She has launched her own fragrances and body lotion, and has designed exclusive collections for retail chain Topshop, and handbags for Longchamp. Kate has led a controversial lifestyle through her highly publicized relationships, a party lifestyle, and drug use. In 2005, Kate was caught in a cocaine scandal with then boyfriend Pete Doherty that caused her to loose multiple high fashion contracts. After ending her relationship with Pete and entering a rehabilitation program, Kate made a huge comeback by landing 18 top modeling contracts in 2006. Since the scandal, she has made more money then ever before, and has won countless modeling awards.
