In 1996 Hume was the feature model for Chanel ads. She has modelled for Victoria's Secret. For the March 1996 Gucci presentation of fall and winter fashion collections in Milan, Italy, Hume wore a dress made of white jersey (clothing) with a plunging neckline.
Following a 1997 Paris, France showing of Karl Lagerfeld designs for Chanel, Hume was queried by a Russian TV reporter. He asked her what was the most exciting part of her job. She answered, Um, the money. She appeared in a bias-cut chiffon gown designed by Donatella Versace at the January 1998 Milan fashion show.
Hume was married to rocker and actor Donovan Leitch, Jr. until around 2011. After getting married in Scotland in 1997, they drove all around Bali in a jeep. The couple have a daughter named Violet, born March 2004.
In the Fall of 2013, Leitch was photographed kissing ex-girlfriend, actress Gwyneth Paltrow at a baseball game. In March 2014, Paltrow announced she was separating from her husband, singer Chris Martin after ten years of marriage. Leitch claimed he actually "quietly separated" from Kirsty in 2011, and that it was an innocent, friendly kiss in front of Paltrow's children.
Hume attended a Halloween party at Lot 61 in Chelsea, Manhattan, with Leitch and Oliver Stone, in 1998. The Japanese-themed event included an appearance by Leonardo DiCaprio and friends dressed as members of Kiss. Hume arrived in fangs. The night before Halloween in 1999 Leitch and Hume hosted a party at the same venue. Hume was draped in vines and the couple were scantily dressed as Adam and Eve.
She also starred in an interactive fashion art film by Imagine Fashion called, "Decadent Control" with Roberto Cavalli, Eva Herzigová, and Brad Kroenig. The film features fashion from Agent Provocateur and H&M and premiered in March 2011.
