Most people, fans and Model’s would have been made aware, that most models career’s come with an expiry date. When they get to a certain age, the younger more in the demand models, start getting all the work for latest campaigns. Here at Model Hideout, we have spoken about life after Modelling and thinking about something as a model you can step into as work begins to slow down. For Kate Moss however, this is not the case.
Born: 16th January 1974
Height: 1.70m (5’7”)
Dress: UK 6 – US 2 – EU 34
Shoe: UK 6.5 – US9 – EU39
Kate was one of the lucky ones, she was scouted when returning home from a holiday in the Bahamas at JFK Airport by Storm Model Management founder and director Sarah Doukas, when she was only 14 years of age. Her Waif thin look was very different compared to the “Super Models” during the 90’s such as Elle McPherson Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer who were long, tall and curvaceous. This created speculation and debate at the time; however the highly publicised campaign for Calvin Klein at the age of 18 didn’t do Kate’s career any harm.
Kate’s first appearance in Vogue was 1993 at the age of 19 and still to this day will explain that this was her first ever cover she has shot for Vogue.
2000’s were a very exciting time for Kate, as her daughter, Lila Grace was born in 2002, 2005 her earnings were $5 Million. 2007 saw Kate as the second highest paid model in the world, behind Gisele Bundchen, she ranked 99th richest woman in Britain. While Topshop launched Kate’s first fashion collection under the Topshop label, featuring pieces inspired by her own style, in 2007 and 2010/11.
In 2013, teaming up with Topshop again and announcing her new latest collection, Kate also received a Special Recognition Award recognising her contribution to the fashion industry over the last 25 years, while also starring in Sir Paul McCartney’s music video, Queenie Eye, alongside Johnny Depp.
This year, with her career in full swing, she turned 40, celebrating with friends and family. She took part in her first shoot as a contributing fashion editor for Vogue, and she dawns the latest face for the Alexander McQueen Campaign.
Any sign of Kate slowing down? We don’t think so, there is still more adventures and ventures for her to work through and collaborate with. Kate Moss is a perfect role model for Models worried about the expiring date placed on this career. Here at Model Hideout, we wish Kate all the very best for her next 40 years.
