Kate Moss's career has inspired designers and consumers alike.

When model scout Sarah Doukas spotted a 14-year-old Kate Moss in the departures lounge of JFK airport, she could have had no idea what that one face in the crowd would come to represent. Moss, 38, is one of the most famous women on the planet, a style icon, a muse – all on the strength of her singular physiognomy and fashionable presence.

From heroin chic to rock 'n' roll girlfriend, Moss's many incarnations are celebrated in a new book published this month by fashion imprint Rizzoli. Edited by art director Fabien Baron (he who curated Madonna's infamous SEX book), the tome takes in editorial work featuring Moss from photographers such as Craig McDean and Corinne Day, who shot the doe-eyed and androgynous model at the very beginning of her career, to Nick Knight and Inez & Vinoodh, who worked with her during her steep trajectory to becoming one of the world's most well-known and well recognised supermodels.

"I remember sitting for every picture in this book," Moss says in her introduction."I am and have always been 'up for it', and I never want to let the side down."

Kate Moss has always approached her work as a model with an attitude that has inspired designers and consumers alike, and has been by turns revered and reviled.

"I work a lot, because I genuinely love it," she writes. "All the dreams we dreamt and shared, and all the wonderful fantasies we created together are a part of me."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells. After cracking a few jokes, you'll put the group at ease. Resist the temptation to make fun of relatives, especially the more sensitive members of the group. Nobody likes feeling singled out. Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
