Kate Moss is one of the world’s most recognisable models.
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.

Oprah, Michelle Obama & Diane von Furstenberg… Power-Women Espresso News
Fashion Flashback – Oprah Covers Vogue
After 25 years of life-changing television, the finale of The Oprah Winfrey Show will air today. Oprah has touched so many hearts with her kindness, inspiration and extraordinary enthusiasm and passion for life.
In 1998, Oprah covered American Vogue. Oprah looked exquisitely radiant wearing looks by Valentino, Dolce & Gabbana and Giorgio Armani, among others. Thandie Newton is also pictured with Oprah below right. Vogue.com has republished their interview with Oprah from this feature and you can read it here…
In the article, Oprah is quoted as saying: “What I have decided, is that with fame, notoriety, credibility—if you can’t have the courage to stand up and speak out for what you truly believe in, then it means nothing.”… I miss Oprah already!
Diane von Furstenberg is launching a new fragrance, ‘Diane’. The fashion dynamo will be releasing the fragrance this October. It features two primary scents – frangipani and violet – which combine to create a woody floral fragrance. Of the scent, von Furstenberg has said, “I wanted to put the power of women in a bottle. I wanted a perfume that reflected womanhood — what I know, what I feel about being a woman — and the power that we all have that we can be the woman we want to be.”
Michelle Obama – A Fashion Icon
Since Michelle Obama arrived in England, wearing a two-piece purple Preen skirt suit from the fall 2011 collection, her fashion statements have been getting more and more exquisitely iconic. From a Roksanda Ilincic purple drape neck dress; to a Ralph Lauren fall 2011 elegant black evening gown; not to mention a divine ivory Tom Ford number with elbow length gloves – Mrs. Obama a radiant, fashion savvy, extraordinarily beautiful First Lady!
