Happy birthday Kate Moss, the most rebel supermodel of all time

Today, on her 49th birthday, we celebrate Kate Moss. She is considered one of the most famous supermodels of all time worldwide, and her style, allure and timeless elegance are recognized by the fashion industry-and obv even by non-techies in the industry.

Kate Moss is thus a very famous British model, born in Croydon in 1974, and has literally influenced – through her career – entire generations. She was discovered at the age of 14 by Sarah Storm, founder of the well-known fashion agency Storm. Thus began Kate’s magical adventure in the early 1990s, and over the years she has worked with some of the most famous fashion houses ever, including Calvin Klein, Chanel, Gucci, and Dior.

Moss also missed no opportunity to be noticed for her distinctly rock and rebellious bad girl attitude, she helped create a new imagery of beauty in the fashion industry-decidedly less bon ton than that told in the mid-1990s and early 2000s.

Over the years, Kate Moss has been the subject of much controversy, mostly caused by personal problems. All this does not matter so much if you are considered one of the most pop models around the world, in fact she has remained a constant presence in the fashion system and continues to work as a model and muse for major designers. Among the accolades she has received, in November 2006 Kate was proclaimed model of the year at the British Fashion Awards.

Before retracing some of the most famous catwalks trodden by Kate Moss, let us also recall how committed she is to charity and social campaigns, supporting numerous organizations and initiatives.
