Supermodel Kate Moss hinted this week that the next step in her unstoppable mannequin career might just be a stint in academia—sort of. "I think I could open a modelling school," Moss said. "In Britain's Next Top Model they put the contestants through the torture of what modelling can be like. And it honestly can be humiliating."

What would Moss teach in modeling school? "I guess you need an eye for art," she said, "and also to get into your head that it's not you—you're somebody else. You have to be somebody else to be able to move like somebody else and act like somebody else." So it would be sort of like acting school, but without the talking bit? Eh, who are we kidding? If Kate Moss opened a modeling school, we'd be the first in line. (Lord knows we need a few lessons on how not to look demented in front of a camera.) Anyway, in honor of this announcement, the Telegraph released a timeline of Kate's great modeling moments. An excerpt:

1988: discovered by Sarah Doukas of Storm Model Management at JFK Airport on her way back from a holiday in Bahamas, when she was just 14 years old.
1990: shot by Corinne Day for The Face in a cover shoot styled by Melanie Ward, named 'The 3rd Summer of Love'.
1992: created the 'waif' look after featuring in Calvin Klein campaigns with Mark Wahlberg, pioneering 'heroin chic'.
1994: her first appearance in the Pirelli Calendar.
1995: won 'Fashion Personality of the Year' award.
1996: won Vogue/VH1 'Model of the Year' award.
