Career Highlights

Kate made it big on the fashion scene in the 90’s. She was grungy and just not the conventional a la mode. Moss was called “waif” and “anorexic”, breaking the norm in the world of glamour with a thin frame. When her photos were first published in 1993 there was a huge outcry. Later, Kate became an emblem for the generation. At the age 20 she was already on the main fashion scene in Paris and became a common face on the Vogue. Several designers and photographers staged her beauty through their art and she worked with a wide range of designers like Chanel, D&G, and Bulgari to name a few. Kate has also dabbled with music and films. In 2013, she was honored with an award at the British Fashion awards for her contribution to 25 years of fashion. Currently, she works as a designer for the Top Shop and for Yves Saint Laurent, she was a muse and still continues to work with the design house.

Kate has been in the spotlight for various controversies ranging from her cocaine addiction to her heroine abuse. In 2007, she was the highest paid model in the world, after Gisele Bünchen. Kate has been reckless and indifferent to what the media has to say about her and her indifference is perhaps what made her a successful figure in the modeling world. Her drug addiction got many major brands to de-alienate from her. Apart from this, Kate is also known for her philanthropic efforts.
