British supermodel and fashion icon Kate Moss rang in her 50th birthday in classic glamorous style, partying in Paris alongside family, friends, and her longtime boyfriend Nikolai von Bismarck.

Star-Studded Guest List for Multi-Day Parisian Bash

Moss and her entourage, including her 21-year-old daughter Lila Grace, touched down in the French capital earlier this week to kick off nearly a week of festivities leading up to her January 16th birthday. Several dozen guests joined the fun, with a star-studded guest list featuring some of Moss’s famous friends and modeling colleagues:

  • Longtime boyfriend Nikolai von Bismarck
  • Daughter Lila Grace Moss
  • Sadie Frost
  • Naomi Campbell
  • Meg Matthews
  • Fran Cutler
  • Jessie Frost
  • John Galliano
  • Marc Jacobs

The celebrations spanned several days across some of Paris’s most exclusive hotels, restaurants and nightclubs. Highlights included:

  • Dinner at swanky Paris seafood restaurant La Girafe on the eve of her birthday
  • Belated birthday lunch at iconic hotel Le Ritz Paris
  • All-night afterparty at private club Castel
  • Stops for champagne and dancing at private nightclub Annabel’s and the Hemingway Bar at the Ritz

Moss Stuns in Lace Mini Dress from Kim Kardashian’s Skims Label

Never one to shy away from a fashion statement, Moss made headlines with her party look from Kim Kardashian’s popular shapewear-turned-clothing brand Skims. She slipped into a figure-hugging black lace dress that showed off her famously slender 5’7″ frame. With her trademark smoky eyes, berry lipstick and bedhead blonde waves, Moss looked every inch the glamorous supermodel.

The racy Skims number featured a high neck, long sleeves, and lace cutouts down the sides. She accessorized simply, letting the dress take center stage, with just a pair of black strappy heels and understated jewelry.

While she made a splash in the revealing Skims dress, Moss also wowed in other knockout looks throughout her birthday celebrations:

  • A belted black blazer mini dress to party at Castel
  • An all-black ensemble of skinny jeans, tank top, ankle boots and chic coat to lunch at Le Ritz
  • A sheer leopard print blouse and jeans to dance the night away at Annabel’s

From Controversy to Comeback: Moss’s Evolution in the Spotlight

The 50th birthday festivities mark a turning point for Moss, who has lived much of her adult life in the public eye since being discovered as a model in the late 1980s at just 14 years old. She skyrocketed to fame as a skinny, waif-like figurehead of the so-called “heroin chic” aesthetic. But her early career success was often overshadowed by controversy and personal troubles. Moss spent decades battling drug and alcohol abuse amid an unending spotlight on her tumultuous relationships and wild child antics.

Today, Moss stands firmly on the other side of those troubled times. Sources close to her report Moss worked intensely on her physical and mental health over the past decade to reach this happier chapter in her personal and professional life:

“Kate is like a new woman since turning her life around a few years ago,” a friend told reporters. “She still likes to party occasionally, but everything is in moderation…She spends a lot more time these days focusing on her wellness.”

Longtime Love Joins Moss for Milestone Birthday

Moss rang in her big 5-0 with longtime boyfriend Nikolai von Bismarck —the 37-year-old German aristocrat and photographer who has captured Moss’s heart in recent years. The two have reportedly been together since 2015 after meeting through mutual friends.

While Moss never married von Bismarck, their enduring romance proved strong enough to weather the supermodel’s ups and downs. Over the years, reports have painted him as a stabilizing presence in her once-turbulent life. Sources say Nikolai’s unconditional support has been instrumental in Moss leaving her wilder days behind.

Von Bismarck was reportedly “all smiles” to celebrate Moss entering her sixth decade by her side in the City of Light. The two were practically inseparable during the festivities, holding hands en route to birthday events and cuddling close for photographers all week long.

What Comes Next for the Fashion Icon?

With her milestone 50th birthday now in the rearview, speculation abounds over what comes next for the fashion world’s ultimate “It Girl” Kate Moss.

Running Her Talent Agency

While Moss largely retired from the catwalk years ago, she continues to work steadily today as the founder and director of her eponymous talent agency representing models, stylists and photographers.

2018 saw Moss re-launch and revamp Kate Moss Agency (originally founded in 2016) to focus beyond just models. She now reps creatives working across fashion, art, film, music and more.

Under Moss’s watch, rising star models like her own daughter Lila Grace, singer Rita Ora, Game of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie, and Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown have all signed to the agency. Moss also oversees son modeling for brands like Valentino and Calvin Klein.

Insiders suggest the business mogul has no plans to slow down overseeing her agency’s growth in the years ahead. But she hopes to take on a less hands-on role with operations as she eases into her 50s.

More Family Time

With a thriving career and cleaned-up lifestyle under her belt, sources speculate Moss may take time away from the spotlight she’s known since her teens to focus on family in this next chapter.

Daughter Lila Grace is now a highly sought-after model in her own right at 21 years old. Meanwhile, Moss remains friendly with Lila’s father Jefferson Hack despite their split years ago.

Moss always spoke fondly of wanting a large family one day. Though she never married or had more children, Nikolai von Bismarck reportedly acts as a loving stepfather figure to Lila Grace.

As Lila’s career takes off, Moss may choose to take a backseat from her own ventures to play a supporting role in her daughter’s success going forward.

The Original “It Girl” Still Reigns Supreme at 50

While Moss first captured hearts as an impossibly cool 14-year-old waif, her effortless beauty and boundary-pushing style still turn heads today even as she crosses over the threshold of 50.

Her staying power across over three decades in the fickle world of fashion earned Moss one of her many nicknames over the years – “The Era-Defining Muse.” She has appeared on over 300 magazine covers shot by the likes of Mario Testino, Mario Sorrenti, Steven Klein and Juergen Teller.

Designers and brands from Chanel to Balmain continue to clamor for Moss to showcase their latest collections in ad campaigns and runways today. Among her myriad achievements:

  • One of the original 1990s Supermodels alongside Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington
  • Longest continuous model contract ever as the face of Rimmel cosmetics – over 20 years and counting
  • Annual income still over $10 million
  • Estimated career earnings to date exceeding $70 million
  • Inspiring popular “heroin chic” look and movement of the 1990s
  • Multiple distinctions as “Model of the Year” and inductions into the Model Hall of Fame

For a model who once infamously declared “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels,” Kate Moss enters her sixth decade at long last finding fulfillment in simply being herself.
