The Rise and Fall and Rise of Kate Moss

We all know the supermodel Kate Moss, right? She's not only a supermodel, she's also a fashion icon, mother and inspiration for lots of designers and photographers. We all know that too, right?

But did you know she was spotted on JFK Airport when she was 14?

And that she's been critized for kidsporn cause she did so many nude shoots?
She's very small for a model, only 1.68 m, but it was meant to be to become a model cause she has this special face and a great body of course!

Kate Moss is known for her party lifestyle, she has used (and maybe she still does) lot of cocaine. In 2005 the Daily Mirror posted a view pictures of Kate Moss sniffing cocaine along with her boyfriend (at that time) Pete Doherty. Immediately, H&M, Chanel and Burberry (big names) dropped her. Friends, among who ex-lover Johnny Depp and Naomi Campbell and designers as Alexander McQueen supported her.

The funny thing is that she's totally back! And how. She's on the cover of the september issue of the British Vogue, she's doing a lot of ads again and Mario Testino (photographer and friend of Kate) has published a book of photos of her called 'Kate Moss by Mario Testino'. The book shows not-published photos.

And Miss Moss is also working as a designer herself! Her line for Topshop is very famous and recently, she's designed a bag line for Longchamp.

She may have an attitude, and we all think she doesn't give a damn about anything, but she does. About working as a model she says: 'All of a sudden to get all of this attention, and to be away from home and working all the time was hard. I was on planes all the time. I didn't see my friends. I cried a lot. It was quite terrifying'. And now we see that Kate Moss is just like everyone, only a bit different ;)

  1. Ah Kate Moss is brilliant! Her looks are really unique and she has so many different facets to her. She and Johnny Depp were definitely the sexiest couple I've ever seen. Every picture of them together is so attractive I can't even...
