Ask fashion insiders how Kate – the girl from Croydon discovered in an airport in 1988 by Storm Models’ founder Sarah Doukas – became the icon she is now, and her refreshing normality comes up time and time again. “She is almost perfect, but not quite and that makes you love her even more, because it makes her human,” explains Mario Sorrenti. While Stella McCartney praises the fact that “she is always herself”. I think we all still love Kate because whatever has been done in the photographs, she never wears a mask. She doesn’t act or pretend. It’s her. Part of Kate’s longevity also comes down to her ability to express the many different sides of her personality. Asked how many lives she’s had, Kate came back with the pithy reply: “A few more than nine!” Kate has been working for over 25 years yet it’s almost as if it’s all just getting started. Kate Moss, we love you and we always will. Don’t go changing.
