No one does that truly nonchalant, off-duty style quite like Kate Moss, making her one of the undisputed fashion icons of our generation. It all kicked off for the British supermodel in the ’90s, so, to celebrate her 46th birthday today, we decided to take a look back the era that made her who she is today. From iconic backstage shots, to candid after-party moments, keep scrolling to discover our favourite vintage photos of the ultimate supermodel that you probably haven’t seen before…
- Isaac Mizrahi Spring Summer New York Fashion Week – 1995
Here’s a fresh-faced Kate Moss in her most classic ’90s form: strutting the runway in minimal makeup and messy hair. Modelling a mismatching bikini with a trench as a cover-up by designer Isaac Mizrahi, she’s suddenly got us gasping for some winter sun.
- 25th birthday at the Versace party – 1999
Kate always knew how to celebrate her birthday in style, as seen her at her 25th which she celebrated at a party in Paris hosted by none other than Donatella Versace. In fact, all her birthday parties have been pretty iconic: just think back to her 21st at Viper Rooms in LA or her infamous 30th Beautiful and the Damned themed party.
- Milan fashion week 1995
Backstage photos of Kate Moss are our ultimate favourite and this one definitely has to be up there. We don’t know if it’s the soon-to-be-slicked hair, the bright eyeshadow or how she’s ever-so-nonchalantly enjoying what looks like a cheese batch. You choose…
- Versus afterparty in New York – 1995
This paparazzi image of Kate at an afterparty in New York is everything we imagine the supermodel life to be. From the strap of her quintessentially ’90s slip dress falling off her shoulder to her tousled hair, this look encapsulated everything we love about Kate’s effortless style.
- Backstage at Fendi Spring 1995 Ready to Wear in Milan
Another great backstage moment captures Kate doing her own makeup before the Fendi show in Milan. The leather biker jacket and her messy-mousey hair are very reminiscent of the days when she was dating Johnny Depp and basically invented the highly sought-after grunge girl look.
- Gianni Versace Catwalk 1995
If you’re a true Kate Moss fan, you’re probably familiar with the photos of her closing the Versace show in a sparkling bridal ensemble and Gianni Versace himself by her side. This look probably isn’t quite as famous, but we just can’t get enough of it.
- Steve Coogan 1st Night Party in London 1998
If you ask us, Kate Moss’ party looks are just as cool now as they were then. This little black dress is classic Kate and we’re loving the darker hairdo to match. If only we knew what this conversation was about…
