Kate Moss (born January 16, 1974), is an British supermodel who is best known as the "Face of Calvin Klein". Born in Addiscombe, Croydon, Surrey, England, Moss with a height of 5' 7" or 170 cm is considered to be the shortest supermodel in the world.

Moss was discovered in 1988 by Sarah Doukas (founder, Storm Model Agency [1] (http://www.stormmodels.com/)), 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.

  • + as stated by Westminster birth certificate, Lila Grace Moss-Hack but unconfirmed by DNA testing (note on certificate is "Grace" not Graceyfriend)

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

In early 2005 Moss began dating former Libertines' frontman Pete Doherty, who hit the headlines due to his crack cocaine and heroin abuse.

In February 2005, a nude portrait of Kate Moss by Lucian Freud was sold for 3.93 million.
