Typically, Tuesdays here on Homorazzi.com are reserved for male models in my weekly Model Behavior feature. I love my female models as well too, as evident in my recent Duran Duran post. I’m definitely a model’izer, regardless of gender. Thought I’d mix it up today and introduce you to the little sister of one of the industry’s most-respected supermodels. Say “hello” to Charlotte Moss or Lottie Moss as her agency calls her.
As legend has it, Kate Moss was discovered at JFK airport by the late photographer Corinne Day at the ripe old age of 14-years-old. While it remains to be seen if Kate’s little sister will replicate the same success as her older sister, Lottie Moss is entering the modeling game at only 13, besting Kate by an entire year. While major runway shows have a minimum age requirement of 16-years-old, fashion editorials do not have the same restrictions.
The fashion industry certainly loves youth. In 2011, that statement is truer than ever. “True Grit” actress Hailee Steinfeld became the face of Miu Miu’s Fall 2011 campaign at only 14-years-old. She’s not the only one to secure a major ad campaign. Dakota’s little sister, Elle Fanning (13-years-old) appeared in Marc Jacob ads. Also this year, 10-year-old French sensation Thylane Biondeau was at the center of controversy after posing for a series of racy photographs. And don’t even get me started on those annoying half-sisters of Kim Kardashian, Kendall and Kylie Jenner. Those teens are also making their respective marks in the fashion world.
Will Lottie Moss join the likes of them? Judge for yourself after checking out the series of photos below. Storm Model Management, the same agency that represents Kate, arranged a photo shoot for Lottie. Photographer Andrea Carter-Bowman snapped the ingenue. You can definitely see the family resemblance between the two, but Lottie has a look of her own. She reminds me a bit of a younger Kate Bosworth.
Overall, I like the series of pictures. I am especially glad Lottie isn’t wearing bikinis and other risque clothing. Sure, she doesn’t look her age, but at least it’s not verging on child porn. What’s your first impression of Lottie? Post all your thoughts below.
