Coinciding with this Blue Monday (or the saddest Monday of the year), today is Kate Moss´ birthday. It´s been 43 years since Kate arrived to this world, but was on the age of 14 when Sarah Daukas (the founder of the agency model Storm) found her at the airport of John F. Kennedy on the year 1988.
The most important year for her was 1992. After being discovered, Calvin Klein wanted Kate Moss in his catwalk to promote the first line of perfumes of the brand. Since then, she has worked with some of the best brands in the world of fashion: Gucci, Dolce&Gabbana, Versace, Chanel, Missoni, Dior, Burberry and much more.
In 2012, she placed second on the Forbes list of the most sought supermodels after having invoiced $ 9.2 million from May 2011 to May 2012 for clients such as Longchamp, Mango, Rimmel, Vogue Eyewear and TopShop.
After several drug scandals, Moss remains one of the most influential supermodels in the world of fashion ( In 2007, TIME magazine named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world), after Kate was considered in the 1990s as the anti-supermodel.
After her relationship during 1994 to 1998 with the famous actor Johnny Deep, the supermodel married Jamie Hince, guitarist for The Kills, from which she separated in the summer of 2015. Later, she began dating Nikolai von Bismarck, a young 29-year-old photographer from German Chancellor, Otto von Bismarck.
Happy birthday Kate!
Daughter of Mohamed Hadid and the ex-model Yolanda Foster, at her 21-year-old Gigi Hadid has become one of the most important celebrities of the moment along with one of her best friends, Kendall Jenner. Besides his young age, already appears in the list of the best paid from Forbes, ranking fifth (9 million dollars).
It seems incredible but really, Gigi Hadid has not been dedicated to the world of fashion since now. It was discovered by Paul Marciano, and at the age of no more and no less than three years, conducted the campaigns Baby Guess, Guess Kids and more in front of Guess Jeans. This, Gigi Hadid has managed the path so young and takes her back.
In 2014 she was the image of Tom Ford perfume “Velvet Orchid”; she was on the cover of Vogue USA; did fashion shows for Chanel or recently deceased famous designer Sonia Rykiel and even appears in the SModa supplement of El País.
Later in 2015 gets to be the image of Maybelline, besides being the cover of Vogue Spain for March photographed by Benny Horne, a photographer who would meet her to shoot Gigi for the April issue of Vogue Spain. It is involved in campaigns for Balmain, Top Shop or Max Mara and even we can see her in the video from Calvin Harris How deep is your love.
But still, we can not forget the most important of the year: 2015 is the year in which Gigi Hadid becomes Victoria’s Secret angel, one of the most controversial moments of the year as people inveighed against her throught social media for her”fat” to represent the brand.
Even the Spanish model Blanca Padilla said: “I have no problem with the fact that she´s a girl with curves. I support it. But if I present myself with measures to a casting, they would send me home to lose weight. Most of us have to comply with the measures because otherwise we do not get the job, while others have the privilege to say that designers love their curves. Well, then why do they want you? Perhaps the millions of followers in Instagram have something to do with that too? “.
But it does not matter. She is proud of her body and will not change: “Yes, I have breasts, abdominal, back, have things, but I´m not asking for special treatment.” Defended his body on social networks.
