Fashion Icon Kate Moss Turns 40

Fashion's favorite turns 40.



Kate Moss enjoys a milestone birthday today and turns 40 today. Discovered at a mere 14-years-old in 1988, she has remained in the modeling industry for over 25 years. At only 5"7, she shook up the Amazonian modeling era dominated by names like Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista with her waify figure. Moss became an inspiration to Alexander McQueen and John Galliano, landing iconic campaigns with Calvin Klein and was shot by big-name photographers like Mario Testino. 

The fascinating fact about Kate Moss is her immense staying power. She still remains a fashion icon with her "just-work-up-touseled-look," and is still constantly working — Playboy anniversary cover, anyone?. 

On that note, Happy Birthday, Kate. Rock out with your bad, fashionable self.
