She has appeared on 30 British Vogue covers; 16 Vogue Paris covers; 5 American Vogue covers; as well as Vogue Japan, Spain and more.

 

About Kate Moss

Born in Croydon, England, Moss was discovered in 1988 at the age of 14 at JFK Airport in New York City. Shooting to fame in 1993 with a evocative ad campaign for Calvin Klein; Moss changed the look of modelling in the 90’s. She brought into focus the ‘heroin chic’ look and ‘size zero’ fashion. Of this Moss said; “It was just the time. It was a swing from more buxom girls like Cindy Crawford and people were shocked to see what they called a ‘waif’.

Moss has starred in countless campaigns for high-end labels, from; Gucci, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, Yves Saint Laurent, Calvin Klein, Chanel, Burberry and Bulgari. As well as having worked with the most renowned fashion photographers in industry, from Mario Testino, to Mario Sorrenti, Steven Klein and Juergen Teller.

Still commanding the runway spotlight, recently closing the Louis Vuitton Fall 2011 collection, Moss has also launched a line of clothing with Topshop.

The Six New Faces Of Louis Vuitton

Out with the ‘old’ and in with the ‘new’… and in this case, the very new.  Zuzanna Bijoch, Daphne Groeneveld, Gertrud Hegelund, Nyasha Matonhodze, Anaïs Pouliot and Fei Fei Sun, were announced as the new faces of Louis Vuitton. For the past two seasons, Louis Vuitton has championed more ‘experienced’ models… the Spring / Summer campaign featured – Kristen McMenamy, 46, Raquel Zimmermann, 28, and Freja Beha Erichsen, 23. Then Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell took to the catwalk Fall. And if you recall… this was the collection that attracted criticism when Moss smoked a cigarette back in February.

Changing it up, in this campaign the average age of the ladies is 18. The fresh faced models were shot by renowned fashion photographer, Steven Meisel, for the luxury French fashion label’s Autumn/Winter 2011 campaign. Of the campaign, Marc Jacobs said, “Steven Meisel and I met and decided we would do this wonderful story of beautiful vintage cars, little dogs and fresh-faced young women. It’s a very classic scenario, and of course it suggests travel, but I think we gave it a fresh, modern and sometimes a little bit naughty, tongue-in-cheek spin.”
