What Kate did next.

You're about to turn 40. Are you a) frantically organising a party for yourself whilst trying to secure a babysitter to watch the kids, or b) fronting a handful of designer campaigns and appearing on the covers of several fashion bibles? Kate Moss is doing the latter.

Memoirs of a Geisha: Kate on the cover of W Magazine's March 2013 issue.

As many models struggle to work after they hit 25, Kate has bagged herself Spring/Summer 2013 campaigns for Vivienne Westwood, Versace, Givenchy and Stuart Weitzman at the age of 39. Not only has she got some major campaigns this season, Moss is also the cover star of LOVE, i-D and W.

There really is something special in the longevity of Kate Moss' career. There is more to her than undeniable beauty. As the tabloids pounced after she was discovered snorting cocaine, the fashion world were supporting her and willing her to make a come back. That kind of support comes from friends. Perhaps the secret to Kate's success is just that: friendship. In a fickle and sometimes intimidating industry, perhaps young Kate made her mark early on by simply being nice. I mean she is incredibly close with Marc Jacobs and wore John Galliano to her wedding, after he was sensationally sacked from Dior for anti-sematic remarks. This loyalty has evidently served her well and has kept the cash rolling in.

Personally, I can see her continuing to reign over other models until she's collecting her pension. And good on her, can't say I'm not proud that a Brit girl is showing everyone how it's done.

Models.com did a beautiful write up of her W cover, which she shares with fellow supers Natalia Vodianova and Lara Stone. Read it here.
