Kate Moss’ first magazine cover (The Face)

Any fashionista—and a Kate Moss fan at that—would have a feast. You wouldn’t get tons of tips spoon-fed to you here, but page after page of high fashion as only the British supermodel can pull off. You get the idea. Inspiration in photos.

Kate Moss was born in Croydon, England in 1974. At the age of 14, she was discovered by a scout at the JFK Airport in New York. Her career took off in 1990 after Corinne Day took shots of her for the British magazine, The Face.

The Grunge Look

Indeed, Kate Moss became the new face of fashion, popularizing the grunge or hungry look, a waif in contrast to the curvaceous models of the time such as Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer. Kate Moss redefined the concept of ‘supermodel,’ although mostly in a controversial sense.

Big-Name Endorsements

With a career spanning two decades, Kate Moss has scored countless of magazine covers and high-profile brand endorsements. She has worked with Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, Prada, Chanel, Agent Provocateur, Bvlgari, L’Oreal, and other illustrious names in the fashion and beauty business.
