8 Times Kate Moss Slayed The Game | EGO

In honour of Kate Moss' birthday yesterday we’re looking back at 8 times she has absolutely slayed the game. In a time before Instagram and the endless stream of selfies, she was the original It Girl. Discovered in JFK Airport at just 14 years old, Kate quickly reached fashion icon status, countering the prevalent nineties supermodel trends with her grunge, ethereal style.

She’s since worked with Chanel, Balenciaga, Burberry, Versace, Alexander Wang, Givenchy, Dior, Gucci, Calvin Klein - the list does go on but you get the picture. With 30 British Vogue covers to her name alone, Kate’s cemented herself as one of the most famed models of all time.
