Wiki

Kate Moss (born 16 January 1974) is an English model. Moss is known for her waifish figure and, popularizing the heroin chic look in the 1990s, which made her a supermodel. She is also famous for her controversial private life, high profile relationships, party lifestyle, and drug use. Moss changed the look of modelling and started a global debate on eating disorders, and her role in size zero fashion. In 2007, she came 2nd on the Forbes top-earning models list, estimated to have earned $9 million in one year.

Moss was born in Addiscombe, Croydon, London to Linda Rosina (Shepherd), a barmaid, and Peter Edward Moss, a travel agent. Kate has a younger brother named Nick and a half-sister and half-brother. Moss' parents divorced when she was 13. She attended Ridgeway Primary School and Riddlesdown colligate, but most commonly known as riddlesdown highschool, in Purley. She was not noted for her academic success, while she did excel at sports. According to Fred Vermorel's Addicted to Love: Kate Moss, "Out of eight GCSEs she achieved one C (in Science) and all the rest were Ds, Es and Fs". Moss joined the Labour Party at age 16 and campaigned against Conservatism in her local area.

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.
