Here’s another reason to fall even deeper in love with Fashion’s First Supermodel Kate Moss, as she gave advice on how to tackle fame to fellow supermodel Cara Delevigne: “Never complain, never explain as then you can’t be vilified and scrutinised.”

The Rimmel model speaks from experience – her drug use was exposed by the Daily Mirror in 2005 and her contracts with H&M and Chanel were subsequently terminated.

British fashion designer Alexander McQueen supported Kate during his walk-out after a fashion show and wore a tee-shirt saying “We love you Kate.”

The Rimmel front-woman, 39, whose net worth is £50 million, is one of the highest earning female fashion models of all-time.

Kate was immortalised in a £1.5m 18-carat gold statue called Siren in 2008 as part of a British Museum exhibition.

Marc Quinn created the 50 kg (110 lb) hollow statue and described Kate as “the ideal beauty of the moment”. The statue was the largest gold statue to be created since the era of Ancient Egypt.

Kate also lent her name to designing clothes, shoes and accessories and has appeared in music videos with The White Stripes, Primal Scream, Johnny Cash and Elton John.

Kate endorses top luxury brands Dior, Vogue Eyewear and Rimmel.

Kate Moss lives with husband Jamie Hince and daughter Lila Grace and in a £3 million mansion in Surrey which she bought in 2008.

The Croydon beauty owns a fleet of luxury vehicles including a Range Rover, Porsche Panamera, VW Beetle, a pink scooter and her own black cab.
