Kate Moss was born on January 16, 1974 in Addiscombe, Croydon, London, United Kingdom. Her father, Peter Edward, was a travel agent and her mother, Linda Rosina, was a waitress in a bar. The couple divorced when Kate was 13 years old. While she was a student, she did not excel at school, but she excelled in sports and became the goalie for her local soccer team. At the age of 14, she was discovered by Sarah Doukas of the Storm agency at New York’s JFK airport, while returning from a trip to the Bahamas with her father. She began posing for British magazines and modelling for John Galliano in 1988. At the age of 18, she became the muse of Calvin Klein: her career took off. The young woman is scandalous but she fascinates; her style of dress, avant-garde and rock’n roll, is regularly cited as a fashion icon. Eight years of contract with the American label and years of fashion shows and excesses in the 90s exhausted her. In 2002, she ended her modeling career but continued to pose for the most luxurious brands, such as Longchamp, Liu Jo, Burberry, Chanel… In 2012, Forbes magazine ranked her second in the world’s top paid tops with an annual income of 7.3 million euros.

On the private side, Kate Moss shared the life of actor Johnny Depp. For three years, their romance made the front page of magazines: the couple of the decade separated in 1997. On September 29, 2002, Kate became the mother of a little girl, Lila Grace, whose father, Jefferson Hack, is the editor of the English magazine Dazed & Confused. Her on-off affair with the British singer Pete Doherty, whom she met in 2005 at her 31st birthday party, made the social gazettes happy. The tabloids point to Kate Moss’ taste for partying as well as her consumption of alcohol and cigarettes. In September 2005, the Daily Mirror created a scandal by publishing a photo showing her snorting cocaine. She had to apologize in public and go into rehab a few months later. The cursed lovers finally separate in July 2007. Since then, the twig has been in perfect love with Jamie Hince, guitarist of the band The Kills, whom she married on July 1, 2011 in England. But, after five years of marriage, their divorce is pronounced in 2016.
