In 1984, Kate Moss was discovered by Sarah Doukas, the founder of Storm model agency, at JFK airport at the age of just 14, as she prepared to board a flight home to London with her father. After a series of shoots for teenage magazines, it was Harper?s Bazaar that finally launched her into the international arena. In 1992, she became the Face of Calvin Klein.
Moss originally spearheaded the controversial ''waif'' look which critics claimed encouraged anorexia in impressionable teenagers. The girl from Croydon, who once said she ''might?ve been a bank manager'' now divides her time between London and LA, where she is often seen at The Viper Rooms, the controversial club owned by her one-time actor boyfriend Johnny Depp. She has appeared in several notable documentaries about the fashion world and in 1995, released a hard-back book of pictures entitled simply ''Kate''. In London she is still represented by Storm.
