The newlywed supermodel has had a lot of ups and downs in her life but right now is definitely an up. What more could a girl wish for than to marry the man she loves, feature on the cover of Vogue magazine and a fortnight spent cruising round the Mediterranean in none other than Philip Green's own luxury yacht?

The Wedding

WEDDING. There was a lot less hysteria than the royal wedding even though Moss is considered as fashion royalty by many. Her dress was stunning. The fact that it was a bit different and unique but still very stylish shows that she has learnt a lot about fashion after being so involved in the industry for such a long time. The couple's wedding rehearsal took place in the Cotswolds on 30th June. Kate wore a vintage dress and heeled boots whilst her fiancée Jamie Hince sported a blue denim jacket. At around 5pm on 1st July Kate arrived at St Peter's church, Southrop, in a silver Rolls Royce, wearing a white Galliano dress and a lace-edged veil. Tres Chic.

SCOUTED AT FOURTEEN. At school, Moss had never been very academic and admits that she did not go as much as she should have done. Kate was just fourteen years old in 1990 when she was scouted at an airport by newly formed Storm model agency. Recently many model agencies send scouts out to airports to try and rein act Kate's widespread success. So, next time you can't be bothered to look good to get on a flight remember that there could be scouts everywhere...

CAREER. Since she was discovered she has had a range of style successes both for campaigns and her own personal style. Her first campaign was in 1992 at the age of only sixteen when she was the face of Calvin Klein. She was popularized the “heroin chic” look and is now famous all round the world and has worked with various designers.

WEIGHT. There was a lot of controversy surrounding her weight as she was very skinny and rumours circulated that she was starving herself and that she was anorexic but she has always denied this. Despite this she says “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels” yet also says “I was never anorexic, so I was never that skinny. I was never bony-bony. But I remember thinking, I don't want to be this skinny.She blames her career for her size and says that when she is working there is a lack of good food available. She supposedly now follows the detox diet which looks like this:
Breakfast- 1 shake with apple and water, no sugar or sweetener.
Mid-morning- one tomato and one apple
Lunch- vegetable soup, 1 orange juice, 1 mixed fruit salad
Snack- one cup of tea with sweetener, 1 orange
Dinner- Zucchini, 1 kiwi
And an exercise routine that means she exercises for 1 hour and a half four times a week. These exercises include pilates, elleptical machine, spinning classes, jumping rope, climbing stairs, singing and dancing and stretching.

HEIGHT. She is shorter than previous fashion models at only 5 foot 7 inches (the same height as me, I want to be five foot nine though, so I hope I grow a couple more inches!)
COCAINE SCANDAL. In 2005 Moss caused outrage when photographs were realised of her allegedly snorting cocaine. This caused outrage and she was branded a bad mother as her daughter was only three years old at the time. After that the media went crazy over Moss, creating all sorts of allegations: not all of which are true. Kate may have had a tough past but she is an inspiration as she has put all that behind her and proved that Kate Hince is better than that. However, she has also been accused of glamourising smoking.
