Today's Monday Piece is on English model and worldwide fashion icon Kate Moss.
Kate Moss is a worldwide fashion model who has fronted campaigns for fashion houses such as Burberry, Chanel, Calvin Klein as well as beauty campaigns for Dior and Rimmel London. Kate was 'discovered' by the founder of Storm model management at the age of 14 in 1988 whilst at JFK airport after a holiday with her family. She was then photographed by various high profile photographers and became hugely popular - she then fronted a campaign for Calvin Klein which was the start of her successful modelling career.
Compared to the more voluptuous models of the 1990's, such as Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer, Kate was known for her waif like figure and was notably shorter as well as slimmer than other models. Although this sparked outrage amongst some, the waif model figure was then widespread. As a result since the 90's Kate has fronted campaigns for every major fashion house out there. At the age of 38 she is still modelling and has recently designed her own clothing sell out collections for major high street chain Topshop and a handbag collection for Longchamp. She also has her own fragrance range.
Her own personal style is described as boho chic and grunge, she is often spotted wearing tight leather trousers and simple tees paired with fierce boots and her favourite Balenciaga city bag! Due to her great style she has topped many best dressed lists and modelled on the cover of prestigious fashion magazines like Vogue and Vanity Fair worldwide.
Personally I love Kate Moss' style, she always looks rocky and cool and always effortlessly glam.
She is currently fronting a campaign for high street store Mango, as you can see on the first picture she looks amazing in the neon striped jumper dress.
