In possibly her most revealing interview to date, Kate Moss has spoken to Vanity Fair candidly about her initiations into modelling and the fashion industry, which left her having a 'breakdown' as a teenager.

Moss did two shoots in her late teens that really catapulted her into the spotlight. First came the Calvin Klein shoot, that saw her posing topless with a muscled man, the second with The Face magazine, another topless shoot. "I had a nervous breakdown when I was 17 or 18," she said. "It didn't feel like me at all. I felt really bad about straddling this buff guy. I didn't like it. I couldn't get out of bed for two weeks." In response to her clear crippling anxiety, her doctor prescribed Valium. Luckily, Moss was persuaded not to take it by Francesca Sorrenti, but still the problem persisted: "Nobody [took] care of you mentally."

Despite her emotional adversity to the shoots, the photographers coerced her into doing what they wanted. They told Moss, "If you don't do it, then we're not going to book you again." She said, "So I'd lock myself in the toilet and cry and then come out and do it. I never felt very comfortable about it." The one respite for the young model was her then boyfriend Johnny Depp, whom she always went to for advice, and he always told her what to do. 

This interview and its uncomfortable sexually co-ercive tone comes at a prime time in British news, as her story fits right into the culture that is surrounding the Jimmy Savile case. There are far more stringent rules about young models these days, nevertheless, at the very least let's hope Moss's honesty gives courage to young girls in similar emotionally damaging situation.
