British supermodel Katherine Moss was born on January 16, 1974, in Addiscombe, Croydon, Surrey, England. At the age of 14, Kate was discovered by Sarah Doukas of Storm Agency and it was her starting point in building a career as a supermodel. She made her first appearance on the cover of a British magazine, The Face. Her look afterwards, has been familiar since she became the covers of some famous magazines, namely Elle, Allure, Vogue, and Arena. However, it was the US magazine, Haper's Bazaar that led her into the international fashion area.

Her thin figure and unusual low weight raise controversy on the trend of "waif" look that triggers anorexia toward inferior teenagers. In spite of her unhealthy image, she has appeared in some advertisements, such as Burberry, L'Oreal, Yves Saint Laurent, Cerutti 1881, Dolce and Gabbana, De Beers Simple Diamonds, and Versace. However it was Calvin Klein's which made her become unbelievably popular, thus being noticed as "The Face of Calvin Klein" due to her dominating appearances in those CK ads.
