Kate Moss was born and raised in Croyden, England where her father owned a travel agency and her mother worked in a pub. While returning home from a family holiday in Florida, Kate was approached by a London modeling agent who saw something unique about her. She was a natural behind the camera, and it was not long before she landed her first booking: shooting with photographer Corrine Day for the cover of the Face.
In the years to come, Kate has become one of the most famous women in the world. Equipped with a keen sense of personal style and an amazing work ethic, she is a must-have in the fashion world and beyond. Kate has and continues to work with today’s most talented photographers and has appeared on numerous covers for almost every major fashion magazine including recurrent issues of British, American, French, German, Chinese and Italian Vogue. Most recently, she appeared on the cover of Vogue Germany, lensed by Peter Lindburgh as well as British Vogue and W shot by Mert & Marcus. Select, additional titles include Glamour, GQ, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, V and i-D.
The fashion icon is also an accomplished editor, previously acting as a special guest editor for French Vogue. Most recently, she became a permanent part of British Vogue’s masthead as an editorial contributor under the direction of new editor-in-chief and celebrated fashion stylist, Edward Enninful.
Kate has walked for every major designer in New York, Paris, Milan and London and has been the face of countless ad campaigns, including Burberry, Alexander Wang, Rimmel London and Calvin Klein, for which she is considered the ultimate muse. Raf Simons recently debuted never-before-seen images from Kate’s extolled shoot with Mario Sorrenti for the brand’s signature fragrance, Obsession, to front the reinvented scent, Obsessed, further immortalizing her impact on the label. Kate also currently fronts Miu Miu’s fall/winter 2017 ad campaign, shot by Alasdair McLellan; and Charlotte Tilbury’s Scent of a Dream fragrance.
Kate previously released two fragrances under her name and launched 12 collaborative clothing collections with UK retail giant, Topshop, which proves to be among the chain’s most successful divisions. In 2016, she appeared as herself in the film “Absolutely Famous: The Movie” in which the comedic plot centers around her accidental death at the hands of the protagonists. She also appeared in the mini-sequel to classic film “Love Actually” where fan-favorite character, Mark, reveals he married Kate Moss and carried out his plan of wedding one of four famous women.
In John Galliano’s own words, “[Kate] is a chameleon who captures the now like no one else I know.”
