Few women have been as envied, emulated, or denigrated as Kate. When she began her career in the late eighties most models had curvy, athletic figures, but her waif-like frame suited the grunge look that was overtaking fashion, and she quickly rocketed to stardom. Fleeting and elegant, there is something ephemeral in Moss’s beauty –– blink and you may miss why she’s such a paragon of style. Her bohemian aesthetic mixes high and low influences, creating a look that is tough, feminine, and seemingly effortless. Although she has been criticized for her slender frame, which has been attributed to drugs, stress, and a supposed eating disorder, Kate has never hidden from the public eye. This year she celebrates twenty years in the model industry, and she is looking as cool and as beautiful as ever. Her rock and roll style sensibility, tousled blonde hair, and fearlessness continually inspire us. Click through style notes to see some of Kate’s most iconic images.
