Kate Moss is one of the lucky models that were scouted by Sarah Doukas. At 14, she had already chosen a path in modelling even though she did not have the “supermodel look”. Moss arrived at the time when super-modelling was not so much in vogue; we were beginning to see waifish looking models. This size zero fashionista rose to fame as a prominent member of the heroic chic fashion trend. Time seems to have no hold when it comes to the success and length of her career.
Date of Birth: January 16, 1974
Zodiac Sign: Capricorn
Small-statured Moss has been one of the top-earning models for years now and she has taken several upcoming models as protégés. She was once on Time’s 100 most influential people in the world today. Kate has received media perusal for her lavish party lifestyle and quite a number of drug allegations. Let’s see if the iconic Moss took after her parents or siblings.

Peter Edward Moss (father)
Date of Birth: August 31, 1944
Zodiac Sign: Virgo
Born to Phillip Edward Moss and Margaret Elizabeth Pendleton, Peter became an airline travel agent. Edward Moss is British as he hails from Haywards Heath in West Sussex. In 1971, Peter Edward got married to his sweetheart Linda Rosina at St Mary’s Church in Beddington. In 1987, when Kate was 13, Peter and Linda split. This was not so easy for Kate since she was just trying to come into her own. It was shortly after this sad experience that she was scouted by Sarah Doukas. Peter is currently married to Inger Solnordal.
Linda Rosina Moss (mother)
Date of Birth: September 8, 1947
Zodiac Sign: Virgo
After the divorce from Kate’s dad, Linda started a relationship with Geoff Collman. People say that Collman was a key figure as the teenage Moss shot her way through runway fame. One thing that infuriates Geoff however is how he feels neglected by Kate. Geoff feels like he contributed greatly to her success and she is not repaying him back in kind as he is sick. Moss’s “step-dad” has for some years now been battling end-stage cancer.
Linda Shepherd Moss was a waitress (specifically a barmaid), at least before her daughter became a star. Now, we see Linda Rosina attend several events together with her British Mannequin Moss or both of them enjoying some mother-daughter bonding time. We can say without a doubt that Linda and her daughter Kate share a really close relationship.

Charlotte “Lottie” Moss (half-sister, born to Peter Moss and Inger Moss)
Date of Birth: January 9, 1998
Zodiac Sign: Capricorn
With her blonde hair, eyes and elfin features, you are sure to see the resemblance between the two Moss daughters. At Kate’s wedding to Jamie Hince, a modelling agent saw Lottie and saw in her what she could become. Hence, she was scouted at her sister’s wedding at St Peter’s Church, Southrop in Jul y 2011.
Lottie has started her modelling career in a grand style as the new face of Calvin Klein. Her elder sister and mentor Kate Moss has “vowed” to protect her younger sister from the mistakes she made as a rising star. Charlotte just completed high school and her GCSEs. Also, the Moss family are keeping tighter reins on the teenager Lottie seeing all the troubles Kate had to deal with as an uprising celebrity.
Nicholas Peter Moss (brother, born to Peter Edward Moss and Linda Rosina Moss)
Month of Birth: November 1976
Nick was a student of Riddlesdown Collegiate but started out a career in modelling. Moss left his modelling career for food business. Why? Nicholas Moss runs a Vietnamese street food trunk “Vietvan”. He was bold enough to venture into kitchen business because in his family, he rules in the Kitchen. He once said that Kate may be the catwalk queen in the family but when it comes to food, all she’s good at is gravy.
Nicholas runs Vietvan with his fiancée Tracy Pooley. Once when he travelled around Thailand, Laos and Vietnam, he fell in love with Vietnamese cuisine saying it was out of this world. This was how Vietvan came about and it is now known for its incredible steaming banh mi and fresh spring rolls. Apparently, Nick was always in love with catering, modelling was only a teenage distraction.
