She has amassed a fortune, defined and defied fashion mores and proved wrong those who predicted her downfall. Her image is everywhere: compelling and enigmatic. But though she has become one of the most recognized women in the world, she remains the least understood. By her own admission, 'The more visible they make me, the less visible I become.' From her discovery at the age of fourteen, when her waif-life look was considered 'uncommercial', to finding international fame as a supermodel and her position today as an arbiter of fashion, this book examines Kate's ever changing career and the cultural impact she has had. It describes her turbulent relationships with Johnny Depp and Jefferson Hack, the media frenzy over her time with Pete Doherty and her on/off relationship with Jamie Hince. Based on in-depth research, including candid conversations with friends and family, Laura Collins has written the first definitive biography of one of the most glamorous women of our time.
