Kate Moss holds a unique appeal, merging life as a mother hidden from the public eye with a stellar modeling career that has seen her supermodel status last for more than 20 years. The ultimate femme fatale, her iconic style has arguably attracted a more passionate following than any other model and fashion icon before her, balancing nonchalance and a touch of innocence, with the carefree attitude that has made her one of the most famous models in the world.
