Discovered in New York's JFK airport aged just fourteen by the founder of Storm Model Management, Croydon-born model, designer and muse Kate Moss has been the poster girl of British style for the last two decades. Her waif-like figure and sculpted features revolutionised the nineties model look. Since stripping off for her first major campaign for Calvin Klein underwear in 1993 (and enraging a President in the process!), she's appeared on the cover of pretty much every fashion magazine going; popped up in music videos aplenty; dated Johnny Depp, Johnny Lee Miller and, er, Pete Doherty and walked the runway for everyone from Marc Jacobs to Karl Lagerfeld and late friend Alexander McQueen. Although her controversial private life has often overshadowed her contribution to fashion, Kate's chic off-duty style has spawned a legion of copycats. Flying the flag for Brit cool wherever she goes, the Kate-effect isn't a new phenomenon. Her wardrobe is packed with stylish seperates that she's made cool - skinny jeans, a trusty black blazer, cut-off denim shorts, ballet flats. Oh, and boho chic? Her creation. No wonder Topshop boss Phillip Green snapped her up to design fourteeen capsule collections! Arguably the ultimate British style icon, newly-married Mrs Jamie Hince is never off our fashion radar.
