Case Study of A Supermodel – Kate Moss, by Capri Models


Kate Moss is arguably the most famous supermodel in the world. She rose to fame during the Heroin Chic model movement in the 1990s and despite waves of controversy over the years, remains one of the most highly demanded models to this day.

Kate grew up in an unassuming family in Surrey, but was spotted at an airport when she was only 14 years old by the founder of Storm Model Management. Following a black and whiter ‘grunge’ photoshoot when she was sixteen, Kate went on to become famous for her contrast to the supermodels of the time, who tended to healthy, tall and curvaceous.

She has won many awards over the years, including ranking highly in several ‘Sexiest Women’ lists, modern muses and rich lists.

Kate Moss has worked with many of the leading international fashion  brands, including Calvin Klein, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Rimmel and Bulgari. She has been on the cover of countless magazines, including Vogue, Vanity Fair and the Face.

Kate has branched out from modelling and has been a fashion icon for the boho-chich movement and has even designed her own collection. She has also launched fragrances and body lotions bearing her name.

Kate’s personal life has been a focus for controversy and media interest, with partners ranging from Johnny Depp to the infamous Pete Doherty. She’s now married to Jamie Hince, the guitarist for The Kills. Her drug use has often been in the headlines, and while a cocaine scandal temporarily caused negative publicity, it doesn’t appear to have affected her earning power, which is higher than ever.

Modelling quotes collected by Capri Models


I hate flowers - I paint them because they're cheaper than models and they don't move.
Georgia O'Keeffe


I'm not photographing the model in the classic sense; the model is playing a part in my photographs. It's more like theater. I always work with models I know, and I let them participate in deciding how to act their part.
Kim Weston


The leading cause of death among fashion models is falling through street grates.
Dave Barry


Models now need to promote themselves, think like businesswomen and diversify their careers by doing other things. Chances are very slim that a mere model will become a household name today.
Tyra Banks



Most of the models have this thing I call slouchy sexy, not only in the way they dress, but in the way carry themselves. I don't think they would look hot in one of my dresses. They are more into A. Wang. Most of my clothes are nerdy sexy.
Chloe Sevigny


Today it is not the classroom nor the classics which are the repositories of models of eloquence, but the ad agencies.
Marshall McLuhan

The secret to modeling is not being perfect. What one needs is a face that people can identify in a second. You have to be given what’s needed by nature, and what’s needed is to bring something new.
Karl Lagerfeld


So everyone has that problem, models have that problem, too.
Heidi Klum

Guide to Becoming a Model – with Capri Models


Lots of people want to become a model, but some are more successful than others. Capri Models explains the right steps to take to give yourself the best chance of finding success as a model.

Step One – Decide if you really want to be a model


Think about the reasons for wanting to become a model, and though it might be hard, try to assess yourself realistically for model potential. Are you taller than average, do you have exceptionally clear skin and are you photogenic?

Step Two – Do some research


Read up on the industry, what’s expected from you and what you can expect. Find out about the major modelling agencies, how they work, where they’re based and what their guidelines are like. You can also contact a modelling support company such as Capri Models, who can give you an independent assessment for modelling potential and help you put together an action plan.

Step Three – Make sure you have support


If you’re under eighteen, then you can’t be a model without your parent’s consent, so you need to discuss it with them, and make sure they’re on side. The chances are they’ll probably get as excited about the idea as you, and will help you on your way.

Step Four - Submit your photos to an agency


Read their guidelines carefully and make sure you follow them to the letter and don’t forget anything. Then you’ll have to wait to see what they say. It’s fine to submit to a few agencies at once, but only do as many as you’ll be able to take rejections. Rejection is part of life for a model, and no reason to give up too soon.

Step Five – Be professional


If you’re lucky enough to get invited in for an interview, then try to stay calm and just be yourself. If you’re under eighteen your guardian will need to go with you. Answer all the interviewers questions honestly, and try not to babble. If they offer you a contract then check it our carefully and read the small print.

The four top fashion cities explained by Capri Models


As with many things, location is a key factor in the success or failure of a model. As the team at Capri Models knows, proximity to jobs means you can get there faster and cheaper, and in the fast moving fashion industry, quick turnaround is often a deal breaker. As a general rule, big cities offer many more opportunities than smaller places, as the clients and agencies are concentrated there.
There are four major fashion capitals in the world: Paris, Milan, New York and London (where Capri Models is based).

Classic elegance - Paris



Paris has a long standing history as a centre of art and fashion and is home to several prestigious fashion houses. It is known for the classic timeless elegance of the designs that are born there. It has an up market high fashion shopping district where all the most exclusive labels can be found.

Milan – home of Italian Fashion


In 2009 Milan was declared the top economic and media capital of fashion. There are a great many world famous Italian fashion brands which have their main headquarters located in the city, including: Valentino, Gucci, Versace, Prada, Armani and Dolce & Gabbana. Milan Fashion Week is held twice a year and is one of the Holy Grails for catwalk models.

Fashion in the States – New York


The only recognised fashion capital outside of Europe, New York is a metropolitan city that never sleeps and is home to the cutting edge of innovation is style and culture. New York Fashion Week, branded Mercedes-Benz FashionWeek in 2009 is held in February and September every year – and was originally the first ever fashion ‘week’.

The island trendsetter - London


London has a long history as a trendsetter and leader in world fashions, and in recent years has been named as the number 1 fashion capital of the world thanks to the ascendency of Kate Middleton and the London Olympics. The vast majority of the international modelling agencies have their main UK offices in London and it is the base for hundreds of fashion photography studios and the supporting teams, including the best photographers for glossy magazines.

The major modelling agencies are mostly based in Central London, around South Kensington and Leicester Square, including: Elite, Storm, Premier Model Management, Models 1, BMA Models and Next Models.
