Moss was withdrawn from fashion ads after a drug use scandal in September 2005, which made her a target of media scrutiny due to her partying ways.
After being exonerated, she resumed modeling. She has served as the inspiration for numerous cultural representations, including a £1.5 million ($2.8 million) 18 carat gold statue created in 2008 for a British Museum display.
