Kate Moss

Kate Moss (born January 16, 1974), is an English supermodel who is best known as the Face of Calvin Klein. Born in Addiscomb, Croydon, Surrey, England, Moss with a height of 5'8" is considered to be the shortest supermodel in the world.

Moss was discovered in 1984 by Sarah Doukas (founder, Storm Model Agency), when she was only 14. After shooting for various teenage magazines, she was launched into the international fashion arena by Harper's Bazaar.

Kate Moss is said to have started the trend of the controversial waif look, that critics claim encourages anorexia in impressionable teenagers. On September 29, 2002, Moss gave birth to her daughter Lila Graceyfriend at the St. John and Elizabeth Hospital in West London with her boyfriend Jefferson Hack. She had earlier dated actor Johnny Depp for over three years.

Moss recently sought help for a sleeping disorder at a top London Clinic, after being exhausted with a busy year in modelling, rasing her daughter and facing relationship problems with Jefferson Hack.
