Celebrities Fashion The 90s

Kate Moss

Kate Moss is one of the most successful and recognized models in the world. Originally from London, Storm Model Management discovered Kate at only 14 years old. Her career began to take off in the early 1990’s. Kate had a ‘grunge’ look to her that took the industry by storm, becoming the face for the ‘anti-supermodel’ look.

After her first Calvin Klein advertisement appeared, Kate was bombarded with questions regarding her weight. Many people believed she was too skinny, leading to the question of drug abuse. Despite the controversy, Kate continued to climb her way to the top with campaigns with Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Chanel and many more.

Kate also modeled for many of the top fashion magazines, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, W, British Vogue, just to name a few. Not to mention that every top fashion photographer wanted to work with her. Only a short time after her drug allegations in 2005, she made another huge comeback, booking multiple modeling contracts with top fashion designers.

Not only does Kate model, but she also dabbles in other aspects of the fashion industry. She has designed a clothing line for TopShop and a line of handbags for Longchamp. Kate has also appeared in many music videos for The White Stripes, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Oasis, and more. In 2007, Kate was reportedly the second highest paid model in the world.
