Executive summary: Extremely thin supermodel

Supermodel Kate Moss was "discovered" at 14 by Sarah Doukas of the Storm Modeling Agency, while she was passing through JFK International Airport on vacation with her parents. She is 5-foot-7 and weighs an estimated 100 pounds, perhaps a few pounds less, though she says she never weighs herself. Through the 1990s and early 00s, she was one of the world's most recognizable models. Moss starred in a series of Calvin Klein ads through the 1990s, spurring a period of waify "heroin chic" in the modeling world, which emphasized emaciation and de-emphasized breasts. Moss was photographed with utterly blank face, as if stoned or exhausted. Klein reportedly paid her 1 million a year, until her contract was not renewed in 1999, "by mutual agreement."

Also in 1999, Moss said publicly that she had never walked any fashion catwalk sober, "even at ten in the morning". In 1998, she was hospitalized for exhaustion; in 2000, for a kidney infection; and in 2003, a sleeping disorder. She is a vegetarian, and smokes upwards of 80 cigarettes daily.
