British supermodel Kate Moss is credited with revolutionizing the look of models in the 1990s by ushering in an era of the "heroin chic," ultra-thin look. Kate Moss has been a common tabloid fixture throughout her career due to her lavish rock star lifestyle, high profile relationships and troubles with substance abuse.

Following her 2005 cocaine abuse scandal which resulted in many dropped contracts, Kate Moss was supported by designers she had maintained close relationships with, such as Marc Jacobs, John Galliano and the late Lee McQueen.

In a feature that serves as the ultimate example of her style and personality, Kate Moss covered the September 2011 issue of Vogue US with a spread from her English summer wedding to Jamie Hince, guitarist for indie rock band The Kills, after a three-year engagement. Kate wore a dress by her close friend John Galliano to the gypsy and 'Great Gatsby'-inspired affair that was photographed by Mario Testino, with an accompanying story by Hamish Bowles.
