Today is Kate Moss's 40th birthday, and we couldn't think of a better way to celebrate that milestone — or her 25-year domination of the modeling industry — than by taking a closer look at what makes her so iconic.
For us, an icon isn't just someone who does a lot of celebrated work or has museum exhibits and auctions dedicated to them (though Kate's had plenty of both!). An icon is usually an innovator, and Kate, more than being a great model and an incredibly stylish dresser, has been bringing fresh material to the table for decades. In fact, Kate's style is so fantastic that other equally famous women have only been too happy to copy her style and moves. It's all a tribute to her greatness, and we're analyzing a few standout examples of Kate's pioneering spirit right here.
