Kate Moss Biography
Kate Moss was born in January of 1974 in Croydon, Greater London. She grew up in the Addiscombe area. Her parents divorced when she was 13. She attended Ridgeway Primary School and Riddlesdown High School.
Moss was only 14 when she was discovered in 1988 by the founder of Storm Model Management Sarah Doukas. She was at JFK Airport in New York, returning after a holiday in the Bahamas. Moss was very young and completely unknown at the time. Her first shoot was entitled “The 3rd Summer of Love.:” A second shoot done when she was 16 was entitled “Haute Coiffure.” Moss quickly became the “anti-supermodel” of the 1990’s, going against the typical supermodels of the times such as Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell.
Her modeling style quickly became known as “heroin chic” due to her extremely thin figure. There was a great deal of talk about whether or not Moss was actually a heroin or drug addict or possibly was afflicted with anorexia. Moss herself has stated that she is simply a “waif” and is not anorexic nor was she into drug use, even though she has been photographed doing cocaine with rocker Pete Doherty. Moss has worked for such famous designers as Calvin Klein, Chanel, Rimmel, Gucci, and Dolce & Gabbana. She has been on the cover of British Vogue 30 times and the magazine W 17 times.
Moss is well diversified with her own clothing line, designing handbags for Longchamp, as well as her own body lotion and perfume line in connection with Coty. Moss has lucrative endorsement deals with Virgin Mobile, Nikon, Stella McCartney, Roberto Cavalli, and Calvin Klein. These endorsements earn Moss and estimated $4 million each year. She has also won many accolades for her modeling.
Moss lives with her husband and daughter in London. She has a current net worth of $75 million, which is sure to increase as she has recently signed on as the face of luxury jeweler David Yurman.
