August in "Vogue" Kate Moss Overload
Whatever your opinions on what Kate Moss, 34, chooses to put up her nose, the woman is still making serious bank. Forbes ranks her #83 on the list of top 100 celebrity power players; and estimates she earned $7.5 million from June 2007-to-June 2008.
The August issue of Vogue is a good indicator of her success. In addition to being its feature story, and making the cover, Moss is in practically every ad. Alright, so I'm being hyperbolic. But I counted three. (It seemed like a lot more when I started this posting, so I'm still going with it.)

As far as the Plum Sykes profile on Moss, there's nothing particularly noteworthy; however, the model/"mogulette" does mention she has no plans to quit smoking because it's a part of who she is. (She started puffing on Marlboro Lights when she was 14.)
"I don't want to create a phony facade," she says of her decision not to quit. "I think I just have to be myself; otherwise, I'd be a paranoid mess."
(I wish David Sedaris had taken that stance. It would have made things easier for everyone.)
Oh, and John Galliano says Moss has a large following in fashion because "she lives it as much as she embodies it." Also, she collects it. Moss has over 1,000 pieces; and has a massive room containing nothing but clothes and "rails." (She said it not me.)
