The 39-year-old will receive a “Special Recognition Award” at the event on Monday in celebration of her 25-year career, which began in New York at Storm, a leading model agency.

Moss has modelled clothes by almost every major fashion designer, including Louis Vuitton and Stella McCartney, and most recently became the face of make-up company Rimmel.

Donatella Versace, who used the British model for her Autumn/Winter collection this year, said: “From the very beginning Kate was iconic; she never had to become a model.

“She has the same energy, the same seduction and the same wit – in front of the camera and with everyone.”

The recognition award will join a long list of others on Moss’ mantelpiece, including two model of the year awards in 2006 and 2009, and 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.

The awards were established in 1989, and celebrate the contributions of British designers and models to the global fashion industry.
