The 40-year-old supermodel believes her petite figure set her apart from the curvaceous and tall models who rose to prominence in the 1980s and 1990s, reports contactmusic.com.

Asked how the industry has changed since she took on her first job aged just 16 in 1990, Moss said: "It's more about a unique, interesting, individualistic look. You don't need to be perfect or conventionally pretty anymore".

"I don't know that I'm responsible for that, but I think we really did change things when I started," she added.
