It's hard to believe that Kate Moss' greasy, stringy mop would be the one to launch a thousand haircuts, but it has happened.

Dubbed the new "Rachel" (a.k.a. Jennifer Aniston's layered chop from her early Friends days), the "Kate" has sent millions of women flocking to hairdressers to request the model's new 'do: long bangs and long locks.

The Independent in Britain points out that fringe bangs are nothing new. Famous ladies like Anne Hathaway, Mischa Barton, Jessica Alba and Elizabeth Hurley have already trod the full bang path -- Barton and Alba, in fact, have been there and back.

I guess this just goes to show you that a trend isn't a trend until Kate Moss has done it. If you have any doubts about that point, just consider the following other Kate Moss fads: mini-vest, bohemian chic, high-waisted pants and Pete Doherty.
