The 39-year-old supermodel has already been recognised as model of the year at the awards in 2006 and 2009, and won the first British Fashion Award, which is decided by public vote.

Other potential winners of this this year's prizes, which will be awarded at the London Coliseum, include Victoria Beckham, Marc Jacobs, Prada and rising star Cara Delevingne.

Kate Moss reads 50 Shades for Comic Relief

Catwalk star Kate Moss put in a model performance on air when she read an extract from the steamy bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey to raise money for Comic Relief.

The British model had to suppress giggles as she read from the E L James novel during the Nick Grimshaw's Radio 1 Breakfast Show.

Singer Lily Cooper and comic David Walliams also joined her in the studio, raising more than £250,000.
