Katherine Ann Moss (born 16 January 1974) known as Kate Moss. She has appeared on over 300 magazine covers. She is known for her waifish figure, uncommonly short height for a fashion model, and appearances in many advertising campaigns. She is also notorious for her high-profile relationships and party lifestyle.

Moss was born in Addiscombe, Croydon, London to Linda Rosina (Shepherd), a barmaid, and Peter Edward Moss, a travel agent. Kate has a younger brother named Mick and a half-sister and half-brother. Moss’s parents divorced when she was 13. She attended Ridgeway Primary School and Riddlesdown High School in Purley.

Kate Moss supports Sport Relief charity

Kate Moss supports Sport Relief charity

Kate Moss has shown her support for the Sport Relief 2010 campaign by modelling a one-off dress woven out of recycled mosquito nets. The supermodel created a buzz in the blue design, created by William Tempest for Sports Relief 2010’s commitment to tackling malaria and is to be auctioned to raise money for the charity.

‘I was shocked to hear that one child dies from malaria in Africa every 30 seconds, that’s why I was happy to be involved in this important project for Sport Relief,’ says Moss. ‘William Tempest’s dress, which incorporates recycled malaria nets is absolutely gorgeous, I loved wearing it and working with William. It’s a great way of raising awareness of the seriousness of malaria.’

William Tempest added: ‘I’m really proud and excited to have designed a dress for Sport Relief with the serious message of highlighting the power of the humble mosquito net as a lifesaving tool against malaria.

‘To help raise awareness about malaria I designed a structured dress which incorporates layers of a malaria net in panels. Kate looks amazing in the dress and I hope its auction will raise lots of money and bring awareness to such a great cause.’

Other stars which have supported this year’s Sport Relief include Eddie Izzard, Fearne Cotton, David Walliams, Jimmy Carr, Christine Bleakley and Helen Skelton.

Roberto Cavalli + Kate Moss & Pete Doherty

Roberto Cavalli + Kate Moss & Pete Doherty Kate Moss and rocker boyfriend Pete Doherty are to star in Roberto Cavalli’s A/W 2007-8 campaign together.  Although, Moss was initially scheduled for the campaign on her own, Cavalli quickly decided to use Doherty when the latter accompanied his girlfriend to the shoot.

“They are both iconic,” Cavalli said about the decision. “Free spirits with a strong personality. Stylish, contemporary and a very intense couple.” The media interest generated by the move will undoubtedly stand Cavalli in good stead.

In one of the ads, Moss is featured wearing a Cleopatra-style gold-accented gown, while Doherty is cast as a young Marlon Brando modelling the brand’s menswear line. The campaign was shot in Ibiza last month by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot.
