Happy Birthday Kate Moss – The Most Iconic Photos Of The Supermodel’s Career

From heroin chic to London look, as Miss Moss turns 47, we look back at the photos that defined her career.

  1. The Face 1990- Shot by Corrine Day

Kate Moss may have started her career in ‘88, but she found her break 2 years later when she got the front cover of British culture and fashion magazine The Face. Posing in feathers and boho chic on the beach, Kate’s 16-year old smiling face on the cover gave her the start of success.

  1. Calvin Klein 1992- Shot by Herb Ritts

In 1992 Kate modelled for Calvin Klein’s underwear campaign, with Mark Wahlberg, known by ‘Marky Mark’ at the time. The controversial ad launched Moss into fame, as the world saw a more bare, waif-like model before them, much of a contrast to the likes of Cindy Crawford and Claudia Schiffer.

3. Vogue March 1993- Shot by Corrine Day

Working with Corrine Day again, Kate embraced her waif look by channeling Twiggy and epitomising the London girl style in her first Vogue cover at just 19. Moss has gone on to be the cover of over 40 more British Vogue issues.

  1. Calvin Klein Obsession Campaign 1993 – Shot By Mario Sorrenti

The same year, Moss was the face of Calvin Klein’s Obsession fragrance campaign. Not only did these adverts give Kate supermodel status, but this fragrance campaign became an iconic moment for the Calvin Klein brand, so much so that the archive was reopened and used again by Raf Simons for the Calvin Kelin Obsessed campaign 25 years later.

  1. Face of Rimmel 2001

After 13 years in the business, Kate was still going strong, becoming the face of Rimmel Cosmetics in 2001, the first face of the company since they were founded in 1834. Moss’ London girl look suited the British brand so well, and because of this she remained the face for more than 15 years.

  1. Playboy 2014 – Shot By Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott

For the magazine’s 60th birthday, Kate Moss made her Playboy cover debut. Wearing the classic Playboy bunny outfit, Moss, whose career had spanned 4 calendar decades by this point, posed for the cover at 39 years old. Kate was 40 when the issue was released – to be the chosen icon at that age in a world of retirement at 28 is iconic in itself.
