The Amazing and Glamorous Kate Moss

Smart

By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!


And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!


Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!


And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

Katherine Ann Moss is an English model and businesswoman who took over the industry when she was just 14 years old. Her 31 years in the limelight have been as scandalous as she is beautiful. Take a look at the Kate Moss you won’t read about in the magazines.

Birthday Suit

In 2013, Kate stripped down posing naked to promote St. Tropez fake tan. In the ad, it looks like Kate is smoldering in the actual exotic locale of St. Tropez, but she was just in a studio.

 

Gold Star Status

Kate is really very shy and rarely gives interviews. “When I used to do interviews a long time ago, I used to get very ill just worrying about them before they came out…”

 

 

Bow Legged Babe

Even though she’s a gorgeous model, Kate is still human and she has her own insecurities. She claims to never wear mid-calf clothing because she was “bow legs.”

 

Beauty Exhibit

Kate had her own exhibit…almost. The Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris announced they were opening an exhibit to celebrate Moss’ career, but it was later canceled. 

 

 

Denying Designer Status

Trusting Johnny

Moody Man

Johnny Depp has assumed responsibility for the breakup between him and Kate. He said, “We would still be together if I hadn’t behaved like such an idiot. She was the best thing that ever happened to me, but I blew it because I was too moody and too miserable to be around…I don’t blame her one bit.”

 

 

Crazy (Not) In Love

 

via imgur

 

Depp and Kate broke up for good in 1998 after a huge fight. She thought she was living in his home in Los Angeles, but he thought she was just crashing there. He was tired of how clingy she had become, calling her “a crazy b-tch.”

 

Cultural Icons

 

via imgur

 

Johnny Depp, being 11 years her senior, wanted to introduce Kate to as much culture as possible. He introduced her to Iggy Pop, Hunter S. Thompson, and the Beat Poets. She came off as uncultured during an interview with a reporter when she struggled to pronounce novelist Jack Kerouac’s name.

 

 

Mini Moss

Charlotte (better known as Lottie) Moss is Kate Moss’s little sister. Lottie began her modeling career at just 16 years old with Storm, the same agency as Kate. Lottie is so much like her big sister that the British media calls her “Mini Moss.”

 

Written In The Stars

 

via imgur

 

Kate was born on January 16, 1974, which according to astrology makes her a Capricorn. Capricorns work extremely hard in their career. Interestingly, the other successful Kate (Middleton) is also a Capricorn.

 

 

Fashion No No

 

via imgur

 

Kate is the definition of a true fashion icon. She is always dressed to the tens and looks good at any angle. But even the worlds top model makes fashion mistakes. Kate said that her biggest fashion mistake was owning overalls! 

 

Bridezilla

High-end shoe designer Manuel “Manolo” Blahnik re-tailored Kate’s wedding shoes 5 times to make sure they were perfect. In an interview, he revealed just how much effort went into creating the perfect shoe for Kate’s wedding. “What a bloody nightmare!”

 

 

Creme de la Flawless

 

via imgur

 

Top celebrities and beauty icons always have seemingly flawless skin. Kate and other beauties like Kate Hudson have turned to premium skincare brand La Mer for all their pampering needs. Kate’s favorite skincare product is Creme de la Mer.

 

Special Guest Star

The hilarious sitcom “Blackadder” from the 1980s on the BBC network is a little known gem. What is even less well known is that Kate Moss starred in a guest appearance for an episode. She played Maid Marian and Queen Marian in the episode “Back and Forth.” 

 

 

She’s A Sport

 

via imgur

 

The only sports Kate Moss does is strutting down the catwalk. In the London 2012 Olympic, the biggest stars took to the stage for the closing ceremony. It was a night to remember with headliners like the Spice Girls and The Who, with Kate Moss leading the charge.

 

Special Appearance

 

 

Paul McCartney had Kate and boyfriend Johnny Depp star in his music video. The “Queenie Eye” music video was shot in 2013 with the two hottest stars. Interestingly enough, the couples part was shot on different days so as not to see each other.

 

 

She Got It From Her Mama

 

via imgur

 

Who would have thought that Kate Moss came from humble beginnings? Her father, Peter Edward Moss, was an airline employee and travel agent, while her mother, Linda Rosina, was a barmaid. Her parents divorced when she was 13 years old. 

 

Starlet’s Secrets

 

via imgur

 

Kate never takes a selfie! She even has a private Instagram account she keeps secret. Her motto has always been: “Never complain, never explain.” 

 

 

Beautiful Bride

 

via imgur

 

Kate’s wedding gown was not an overly extravagant dress like one would expect for a model to wear on her big day. But that’s always been Kate’s style: dressed-up cool, never fussy. 

 

What’s On The Menu?

 

via imgur

 

Ever wondered what a supermodel eats to keep herself looking nothing less than flawless? Kate’s thoughts on eating healthy: “Food is really important…I do good breakfasts- eggs are my forte.” But it wasn’t always that way for Kate. “When I was young I was so low maintenance I didn’t have to worry.”

 

 

Golden Rules

 

via imgur

 

Kate revealed in an interview her makeup rituals and rules. “I haven’t got the time or the inclination to sit there for ages, putting creams on my face…I’ve been to bed in my makeup on occasions but I wouldn’t make a habit of it…It’s not a good look.” Straight from the queen’s mouth to our ears!

 

Jelly & The Telly

 

via imgur

 

Queen Kate talked openly in an interview about what she does while watching television. “I’ll sometimes do those gorgeous sheet masks while watching telly…Like a good girl, in bed, with my face mask on for work.” Quite the professional multi-tasker! Just a day in the life for a model. 

 

 

Little Lila

The passion for fashion most definitely runs in the Moss family. Kate’s daughter Lila Grace at just age 7 expressed her love for the film “The Devil Wears Prada.” 

 

Poor Taste

 

via imgur

 

Take it from the top model herself: never mix silver and gold. Kate thinks that it’s a sign of poor taste to wear both silver and gold. And in the fashion world, what Kate Moss says is the golden rule.

 

 

Wide-Eyed Waif

 

via imgur

 

Kate broke into the modeling scene during a time when it was dominated by curvy supermodels. She created a niche for herself with her delicate beauty, small frame, and size zero figure that the world hadn’t seen before on the cover of magazines. It’s a testament to feminine beauty in all its shapes and sizes.

 

Childhood Years

 

via imgur

 

Kate was raised in Addiscombe, south London, where she attended Ridgeway Primary School. She then enrolled at Riddlesdown Collegiate. Then when Kate was just thirteen years old, her parents got a divorce. The next year she would be discovered at JFK airport in New York. 

 

 

Rock ‘n’ Roll Chick

Kate Moss and David Bowie had been longtime friends. In an interview after Bowie’s death, she said, [Two days before he died] I was wearing purple boots to dinner, and somebody said, ‘Are you wearing those because it’s Bowie’s birthday?’ And I was like, oh my God, I’ve got to do something. So I sent him a video…I don’t know if he got it.”

 

Pole Dancing

 

via imgur

 

Kate was featured in the band The White Stripes music video for the song “I Just Don’t Know What To Do With Myself.” Kate is seen pole dancing in nothing but her undergarments. 

 

 

Naked Portrait

Artist Lucian Frued painted a nude portrait of a pregnant Kate. It was Kate’s dream to have a portrait done by Frued, who also painted Queen Elizabeth and Mick Jagger’s ex-wife, Jerry Hall. It sold for £3.9 Million.

 

(Intimately) Close Friends

Rihanna and Kate did a photo shoot together in 2013 for the ‘V Magazine’. The two gorgeous superstars posed intimately, both in lingerie and tangled up in an embrace. 

 

 

And The Award Goes To…

The Big Five as they were called during the 1990s was the original supermodels of the decade. But when Kate Moss hit the scene, she quickly rose to the top of the pack. She was award the Fashion Personality of the Year award in 1995.

Kate was bestowed with plenty of award and achievements throughout her long and prosperous career. From the prestigious Model of the Year award at the British Fashion Awards in 2006 to crowned with the title of Sexiest Woman in 2007. 

 

 

Romantic At Heart

 

via imgur

 

Kate has had her fair share of heartbreak over the years. Unfortunately, like most celebrities, her love life was on the cover of tabloid magazines. Kate is a romantic at heart. Even if Kate never meets her prince charming, this strong, independent woman will be just fine. 

 

Aging With Grace

 

via imgur

 

Not that the petite, size zero model needs to worry about her weight, as she got older Kate learned to take care of her health and body. “I’ve never been a gym bunny…I was always, like, ‘UGH,’…but now I’m really quite into it….I honestly lost an inch off my waist in about 10 days.”

 

 

Words of Wisdom

 

via imgur

 

Cara Delevingne has become a worldwide success similarly to the way Kate Moss did when she first broke into the fashion world. In the early days of her career, Cara revealed that she faced really difficult challenges. Cara said, “I never felt like I was good enough, that I deserved success…Kate Moss saved me- stepped in and picked me up off the floor at a stressful time.”

 

Living By Her Own Rules

 

via imgur

 

From the time she was little Kate has always lived by her own rules. In an interview, she revealed why she doesn’t do social media. “I’ve never really liked it- that whole thing of ‘look at me!’. For me, the more privacy the better, not telling people where I am and what I’m doing. All that is the opposite of what I want to do.”

 

 

Controversial Comment

 

via imgur

 

Kate’s bold statement that ‘nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,’ has caused quite the controversy even a decade later. Since then, however, she has retracted the quote. Now at 44 years old, she admitted in an interview with NBC that she regrets saying it and doesn’t believe in it. She is happy to see the fashion industry embracing diversity.

 

Fairy Godmother

 

via imgur

 

Kate is godmother to Jude Law and Sadie Frost’s daughter, Iris Law. When asked in an interview with W Magazine if Kate gives Iris modeling advice, she said, “I don’t really chat with Kate about modeling. When I see her, it’s just nice to see her and chat. I tell her what’s going on.”

 

 

She’s Got It All

On top of being considered one of the most beautiful women in the world, Kate has a heart of gold. Over the years she has supported various charity organizations.

Gypsy Soul

Jamie Hince proposed to Kate while they were watching the British television documentary series Big Fat Gypsy Weddings. Kate said yes and commented: “I am so romantic about Gypsies.” 

 

 

Who Is She?

 

via imgur

 

Kate’s low-key, carefree, wild-child attitude only adds to her mysterious charm. The world loves Kate partly because they feel they don’t know her. It is a surprise in this day and age with the world knowing every little thing about celebrities that Kate has kept herself aloof. As a very private person, Kate has remained an enigmatic figure for the world to try to figure out.
