What with everyone constantly wondering whether or not Cara Delevingne is the new Kate Moss, no ones been paying enough attention to the real Mini Moss, her 16 year old sister, Lottie. But who is Lottie Moss and when did she pop up on the scene?
People first noticed Lottie back when she was a bridesmaid at her big sister’s wedding to rocker Jamie Hince in 2011. Lottie was only 13 at the time but age ain’t nothing but a number in the fashion world and once you've caught the eye of the press it's hard to avert their gaze. Everyone began speculating whether Kate’s fair, blonde half-sister would one day enter into the family business.
Kate Moss has been modeling for over 20 years
It didn’t take long before Lottie was snapped up by Storm modeling agency, the same agency which Kate is signed to. Storm discovered Kate when she was just 14 years old and within hardly any time she was one of the world’s most famous supermodels, along with Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Linda Evangelista.
While Lottie stands short for a model at just 5”5’, this has never stood in Kate’s way, who also stands at just 5”6’. Most supermodels are around 5”10’ and above, we wonder if the designers have to specially alter Kate’s catwalk clothes?
Since being signed Lottie has been featured in magazine editorials in publications such as Dazed and Confused, as well as appearing in April’s upcoming issue of Teen Vogue. Kate regularly graces the covers of Vogue, and is also a contributing fashion editor for the magazine. We wonder if big sis gave her some Vogue pointers that she's learned over the years before her shoot?
When asked about modeling, Lottie has said “It kind of runs in the family. Kate was a massive part of why I started.” We can imagine that growing up with a sister as stylish and famous as Kate Moss definitely lit a fire for Lottie to want to follow in her footsteps.
Lottie has already been compared to her big sister Kate in looks
Vogue UK was told by a Storm spokesperson: “Now that she has turned 16 we are pleased to welcome Lottie onto our client roster on our New Faces division at Storm. However, as she is in full time education she is concentrating on her exams and this is her focus.” Fortunately, Lottie found the time to have a few photos taken up at Teen Vogue and we can't wait to finally see them. We think that with such good modeling genes she has a long career ahead of her. Perhaps Kate's daughter Lila Grace will be the next Moss to appear in Vogue.
Do you think that Lottie's height will get in the way of a successful modeling career? Will Lottie be as successful as her big sister, Kate Moss? Only time will tell!
