The iconic face of Kate Moss and her naturally skinny frame delivered a monumental shift in the way we view beauty. The rise of the ‘superwaif’ (twiggy/heroin chic demeanor) generated controversy in the presidency and symbolized a brand new attitude in modeling and fashion. Before her breakthrough in 1993, her discovery unfolded at JFK airport in New York (1988). Sarah Doukas, owner of Storm Modeling Agency stumbled upon this isolated gem in all her naturalness. Moss was fourteen years old. The age of the supermodel was in full force in the 1990s, though Moss would join this titled position, her approach was charming and untouched. Sarah was right: “She was going to be something special.”
I am fascinated by beauty on so many levels; yes it exists in the physical, but even more important is the realization to see ourselves for who we are. Being comfortable in our own skin is extremely difficult. Beauty is skin deep, what do you see?
