Although Kate Moss left her Victoria Secret days behind, she decided to continue her career.
Model Kate Moss did not lose her popularity, although she paused in the last years of her career.
Kate Moss is a British supermodel. She was discovered at New York’s JFK Airport at the age of 14 and her modeling career began. She caught attention in the 1990s as a curvy model like Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell.

The 18-year-old model is now celebrated online for her open approach to the disease.
On Sunday, Lila Grace Moss walked the runway in Milan for her new Fendi X Versace collection with her famous mom, ’90s top model Kate Moss. When she shared a photo of herself on her Instagram profile a few days later, there was one detail that caught her fans’ attention: the tight dress, not the gold and white jacket, but the insulin pump clearly visible from her hip. Age 18 was appropriate.
The young British woman is living with type 1 diabetes, a rarer form of chronic diabetes that mainly affects children and adolescents. The body can make little or no insulin, a hormone produced in the pancreas that regulates blood sugar. The right amount of insulin is automatically delivered through the tubeless “Omnipod” insulin management system Moss uses.
Many diabetics shared their enthusiasm under the photo. “I love that you don’t hide your pod, you’re an inspiration to so many people living with type 1 diabetes,” said one user. Another wrote: “As a type 1 diabetic, THANK YOU for wearing your device on the goddamn runway! You’re a queen and I want these photos everywhere because the more we spread T1 diabetes, the better.” “A wonderful, proud and positive statement for type 1 diabetes” read on Twitter, among other places.
Parents of affected type 1 children also congratulated Moss for representing their younger child. A Scottish charity also praised the model.
Moss first commented on her illness in the summer of 2020. “I don’t think many people know that I have diabetes,” she said in an interview with The Kit. “It’s not visible from the outside, so no one knows when they saw you. I have type 1.” The disease is usually manifested by the need to urinate frequently, severe thirst and dry skin.
Moss says she wants to support other affected people and raise awareness in the future. “There are a lot of things I want to try and help with.”
