Caught on Tape
The Daily Mirror runs a front-page shot of Moss, allegedly snorting cocaine in a London recording studio after a hidden video camera captures the images. The model immediately loses her contract with H&M. Designers Burberry, Chanel and H. Stern quickly follow suit, and Moss loses out on more than $4 million. Fellow model Naomi Campbell defends Moss in PEOPLE, saying the Mirror's article is "really like a vendetta." Meanwhile Moss issues a public apology just before heading to rehab.
And She's Back
After a stint at Arizona's Meadow clinic, Moss emerges ready to work with a Roberto Cavalli shoot in Spain. "Kate is back working and doing what she does best," the designer tells PEOPLE. A month later, Moss ditches boyfriend Pete Doherty before learning that she will not be charged in relation to photos published of her allegedly snorting cocaine, due to insufficient evidence.
Moss reunites with Doherty, cuddling with him throughout the Rhythm Festival in England. The Babyshambles frontman soon gives an interview referring to Moss as his "missus." But by that very evening, Doherty is in jail on suspicion of drug possession. One month later, a judge says jail would be "counter-productive" to Doherty's recovery, and the singer heads to rehab. Moss stands by her man.
Hotter Than Ever
No one can say Moss' career was permanently hurt by the Daily Mirror incident. The model stars in more than 10 major campaigns for fall, including Burberry. "She's more in demand than ever," a pal tells PEOPLE.
Topshop Takes Moss' Style to Masses
Moss gives British Vogue a sneak peek of her Topshop collection and dons one of her designs, a black lamé halter dress priced at $106, on its April cover. "I thought it should be a bit more edgy. Just because you're wearing a pretty dress, it doesn't have to be all pretty-pretty," Moss tells the magazine of her 80-piece line that launches in stores and online in May. The supermodel also reveals that her 4-year-old daughter Lila loves fashion. "She comes in at bedtime and says, 'Mummy, do you think this is a good look?' And then she has a fashion crisis."
Shaping the World
Moss is named one of Time magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World for having "the face that has never gone out of style." Time says that after nearly two decades in the fashion industry, "Moss remains, hip, really hip, a first responder in the advance guard of style…Her kind of prolonged cool takes not just hard work and great bones but also an infallible chic-tracking system."
Moss Talks Shop with Vogue
With her romance with Doherty behind her, Moss, 34, appears on the cover of Vogue, discussing her latest role as a designer. "All that dressing up makes me say, 'What do I want to wear? What do I want to do with Topshop?'" she says. "It all kind of leads into the other things." As for her reputation as a bad girl, she says it's exaggerated, and prefers to concentrate on her role as mother to 5-year-old daughter Lila Rose. "I'm a mum. All the time. Every day," Moss says. "I put my daughter to bed."
Kate & Jamie Engaged!
Dating since 2007, Moss says yes to The Kills guitarist Jamie Hince's marriage proposal, according to Britain's Sun. While previous reports through the years have claimed the duo were engaged, the paper reports that the rocker recently popped the question in bed, surprising the supermodel with a vintage 1920s engagement ring.
A Supermodel Bride
After walking down the runway for nearly two decades, Moss, 37, finally walks down the aisle with her rocker fiancé Jamie Hince, whom she marries near her Coltswald, England, home. Following their ceremony at St. Peter's Church, the bride – wearing a custom gown by John Galliano – poses for pictures with her 12 bridesmaids, including daughter Lila Grace, 8.
