Kate Moss – 2014 Lifestyle Updates.
Kate Moss (105 pounds, 5 feet 6 inches).

The supermodel has been reported as charging photographers $10, 000 an hour for a session! With a going rate that high it’s no wonder she works out four times a week and carries a personal mantra of: “Nothing tastes as good as skinny looks.”

Background

Moss was born on 16 January 1974 in Croydon, Greater London to conventional divorced parents Linda (barmaid) and Peter (airline employee). At the very young age of 14, this critically acclaimed model was discovered at the JFK Airport in New York. Moss embodied the very current chic trend of “grunge” that was hitting the fashion industry. Moss’s naturally thin physique stood as a sharp contrast to the curvaceous supermodel elite of the 90s with models Cindy Crawford, Elle Macpherson, Claudia Schiffer, and Naomi Campbell. A photo-shoot with Corinne Day for the British magazine The Face launched Moss into a new era where she championed the very controversial trend of heroin chic often having to defend that she was not an anorexic. She is married to Jamie Hince, guitarist for The Kills, with daughter Lila from ex-boyfriend Jefferson Hack.

Career

The renowned British model Katherine Ann "Kate" Moss is the poster model for size zero fashion but that is not all she is known for. Time Magazine has called her one of the most influential people of the world. Very reasonably that could just come from the fact that Moss has headlined for international luxury brands like Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein, Chanel and Rimmel. Yet that would ignore the business empire that Moss has been able to build with her connections that she has gathered over her 25-year-old career. She has her own clothing line, musical projects and is often used as an artistic muse – she has even had gold statue made after her!

Controversy

She shocked the world when pictures of Moss doing cocaine surfaced in the media. The fashion world’s immediate reaction was to drop her from a number of campaigns to avoid any direct association with drugs. Since then, Moss has cleared herself of all narcotic charges and has presumed her reign as one of the premium models of the world, reportedly earning around 9 million in just one year.

Health and Wellness

The secret to Kate Moss’s fabulous body is Jivamukti yoga. If you have not heard of this version of yoga, that is not surprising as it is one of the branches that most people do not know about. Thee style was created by David Life and Sharon Gannon in 1984 with a focus on five basic principles: shastra (scripture), bhakti (devotion), ahimsa (non-harming), nāda (music), and dhyana (meditation). This style of yoga is inclusive of the mind, spirit and body so that all work together to create harmony. Physically the body gains flexibility and with an environment of loud music the mind gets invigorated. Moss uses this style to avoid boredom, so that she can happily workout at least four times a week.

Moss also runs for cardio either outside in the sunshine, or inside on the treadmill when the weather is not good. To maintain a lean body, and not overpower a small frame with bulky muscles the key is to stick to lighter weights. The weights should just be used to tone the body overall. Another secret fitness tip is to go out of your comfort zone and try new ways of movement. Moss has done pole dancing before, as a way to focus on muscles that don’t always get attention. This way you build core muscle strength while having fun at the same time.
