Today, Kate Moss – one of Britain’s most influential fashion figures – blows out 43 candles. Almost 30 years after her modeling debut at the age of 14, Moss is still highly relevant in both fashion and pop culture, withstanding the test of time and proving that she’s a true fashion icon. Savoir Flair recounts five reasons that prove the supermodel is more relevant now than ever before.
Call My Agent
In 2016, Moss announced that she will be leaving Storm Models, her mother agency and home for 27 years, to create her own. With the launch of Kate Moss Agency, the supermodel will be managing not only an army of models, but also budding talents in the entertainment industry.
"Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels"
We can still feel the impact of the supermodel on hundreds, if not thousands, of Instagram and Pinterest accounts — after all, she was credited with such witty (if not questionable) zingers as “Nothing tastes as good as as skinny feels.” Dedicated to Moss’ supreme ’90s style and most quotable quotes, the accounts provide us with filtered nostalgia and Instagram goals on a daily basis. We’re currently following @KateMoss_Supermodel, @___KateMoss, and @TheKateMossy on Instagram.
Kate Being Kate
Kate Moss sells. The “It” Brit continues to snag the covetable ad campaigns that only a supermodel could – this season, she’s the face of Alberta Ferretti and Calvin Klein. She has also been involved with plenty of designer collaborations, with the latest being for French fashion label Equipment on a capsule collection of button-down shirts and slip dresses.
The biggest names and talents in the fashion industry have hosted photography exhibitions in honor of Kate Moss, including one recently held at Somerset House in London, courtesy of hair extraordinaire Sam McKnight.
It’s safe to say that Kate Moss’ appeal effortlessly transitions from print to screen. In fact, she starred in Elvis Presley’s “The Wonder of You” (released posthumously) and Massive Attack’s Ritual Spirit music videos in 2016.
