Kate Moss will be honoured at this year's British Fashion Awards and will receive the Special Recognition award in celebration of her vast 25-year modelling career.

Since Sarah Doukas of Storm Model's discovered Moss in an airport in 1987, she has become a household name, the most prolific Vogue cover girl and a designer's and photographer's favourite.

The supermodel will collect her prize at the awards ceremony in London next week which will be hosted by comedian Jack Whitehall.
