Biography

Kate Moss (born 16.1.1974)

Kate Moss is an English supermodel, well known for he waif-like physique as well as her high profile advertising campaigns and highly publicised relationships.

Kate Moss: Childhood

Kate Moss was born in Croydon, England. Her mother, Linda Rosina, was a boutique manager and her father, Peter Moss, was an airline clerk. She has one younger brother, Nick. She also has a half sister and a half-brother.

Kate attended Ridgeway Primary School and then Riddlesdown High School. Although Kate was good at sports, she struggled with academic work, receiving one C in Science GCSE, but only achieving D's and F's in all other subjects.

Kate Moss: Discovery and early Career

The founder of Storm Model Management, Sarah Doukas, discovered Kate Moss at JFK Airport in New York. Kate was returning from a family holiday in the Bahamas and was aged 14 at the time.

Aged 15, she appeared in a black & white photo shoot for the Face magazine, titled 'The Third Summer of Love'. The photo shoot would become her springboard to international modeling success. Kate's super-skinny figure was a contrast to the curvy supermodels of the day (including Claudia Schiffer and Naomi Campbell).

Kate Moss has featured in a number of magazine polls, including coming eighth in Maxim's 50 Sexiest Women of 1999 and 22nd in FHM's 100 Sexiest Women of 1995. In Arena's 150th issue, they named Kate their Sexiest Woman.

In 2007, she made her debut listing in the Sunday Times Rich List. The report estimated that she was worth £45 million at the time, ranking as the 99th richest woman in Britain. The same year, Forbes magazine named her as the second of the world's highest-earning models, having earned a total of $9 million in the previous 12 months.

Kate Moss's most famous ad campaigns include Calvin Klein (in which she posed nude for its Obsession perfume range), Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Louis Vuitton, Versace, Burberry, Chanel and Stella McCartney, among many other high profile fashion houses. She has also appeared on over 300 magazine covers, including Vogue, Vanity Fair, The Face, and W.

Kate made her first venture into fashion design when she designed a clothing range for Top Shop, in collaboration with Katy England. Top Shop is reported to have paid Kate Moss £3 million for her work on the range. Following this, Moss also launched a self-titled fragrance and body lotion range with Coty.

Kate Moss: Musical Connections

Kate Moss has appeared in a number of music videos, for Primal Scream, The White Stripes, Elton John and Johnny Cash.

She has also appeared on songs by well-known artists, She sang on Primal Scream's version of 'Some Velvet Morning' as well as singing the phrase "is she more beautiful than me?" on Babyshambles' "La Belle et la Bête" whilst she was dating Pete Doherty, the band's front man. Four songs on the band's second album contained Moss' co-writing credits.

Kate Moss: Personal Life

Following Kate's high profile relationship with American actor Johnny Depp, the model began dating the editor of Dazed & Confused magazine, Jefferson Hack. On 29.9.2002, she gave birth to their daughter, Lila Grace Moss.

Kate has also been in a long-term, on-off relationship with Pete Doherty, of the band Babyshambles and formerly of The Libertines. The tabloid papers made much of the relationship. Doherty was frequently in trouble with the police throughout their relationship, often for drug crimes. Doherty's addiction to heroin has been widely publicised.

In 2005, Kate was photographed snorting several lines of cocaine at a Babyshambles recording session. The photos were published on the front cover of The Daily Mirror. The scandal that ensued caused Kate to lose a number of lucrative modeling contracts. In the 1990s, Kate had previously successfully sued the Sunday Mirror for claiming that Moss had slipped into a coma after taking too much cocaine in Spain.

Kate underwent successful drug rehabilitation in Arizona. She urged Doherty to do the same, but he left the clinic without having finished the program. The couple spilt shortly after he left the clinic.

According to Forbes, Kate Moss earned more following the drug scandal than she did previously, despite losing many of her modelling contracts.

Following the split with Doherty, Moss began dating Jamie Hince, the guitarist for the band The Kills.

'Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie' Scores Biggest UK Box Office Opening Since 'Spectre'


Jennifer Saunders Joanna Lumley Kate Moss

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie brought in the big numbers at the UK box office over its opening weekend, taking £4.02 million. The numbers mean the film has managed the biggest U.K. opening of any British film since the last Bond outing, Spectre back in October.

Absolutely Fabulous: The MovieAbsolutely Fabulous: The Movie has taken £4.02 million in its opening weekend.

Speaking about the film’s success, Cameron Saunders, UK Managing Director, Twentieth Century Fox, said: “We are thrilled that audiences have embraced Edina and Patsy’s big screen debut - it is a testament to Jennifer, Joanna and the talented team behind the film who really are absolutely fabulous.”

Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie Review

OK

Nearly 25 years after the sitcom debuted, Edina and Patsy arrive on the big screen to continue their drunken antics, although without the usual enthusiastic laugh-track everything feels eerily muted. Thankfully, there's still a lot of fun to be had, including well-aimed jabs at celebrity culture. Jennifer Saunders and Joanna Lumley are still hilarious in their signature roles. And it's hard to get too worried about the limp plot when every scene is packed with amusing cameo appearances.

With her PR agency fading and her money spent on expanding her home, Edina (Saunders) discovers that her credit cards are "broken" and her champagne fridge is empty. So she and her pal Patsy (Lumley) set out to make some cash. After failing to sell her memoirs, Edina sets out to woo Kate Moss as a client. But this goes spectacularly wrong when Kate ends up falling off a balcony into the Thames. Now under investigation, Eddie and Pats flee to the South of France to find Patsy's wealthy ex (Barry Humphreys). They're chased by a detective (Robert Webb), who's the boyfriend of Edina's daughter Saffron (Julia Sawalha), whose teen daughter (Indeharna Donaldson-Holness) has run off with them.

Written by Saunders, the script is very loose, bouncing around without much focus before a series of impatient, nonsensical conclusions. Basically, it's little more than a flimsy framework that includes brief scenes for series regulars (including Jane Horrock's airhead assistant, June Whitfield's dotty mum, Celia Imrie's rival PR and Kathy Burke's bulldog editor), plus a few new characters like Chris Colfer's stylist. All of these people have their moments, but never quite emerge as much more than comedy sketch figures. On the other hand, the big-screen format allows Saunders and Lumley to give Edina and Patsy a bit of surprising emotional depth amid the usual slapstick nuttiness.
