The fashion blogs are abuzz today over the “discovery” of Kate Moss’ half-sister Charlotte (a.k.a. “Lottie”), who, because she has the last name Moss and is blessed with good looks, is obviously going to choose modeling over all those other less fun, brain-based occupations out there.
The fashion press first got their paws on her at Kate’s wedding, where she was the tallest of the adorable, nymph-like bridesmaids. Agent Carol White (who discovered Naomi Campbell but famously turned down Kate) had this to say to The London Evening Standard about the sexy, sexy 13-year-old:
Lottie looks beautiful and fresh – a very English rose look. Her mother is quite right to wait until she is 14 and has developed more but she has wonderful features and could definitely make a model. Generally you need the height. Kate is an exception to the rule because models need to be 5ft 9in to 5ft 11in. I think Lottie would make a lovely young model.
Of course she looks “fresh”…she is fucking 13! I’d hate to see a 13-year-old who looks “not so fresh.” Besides the creepy language she used (those words connote 19th century ideas of virginity as beauty, to me), and besides her implied assertion that 14-year-olds are totally ready for the fashion world, it sounds like White is taking Lottie’s mother’s words and running with them. “She’s too young [to model professionally]. When she is old enough it will be her decision,” is what mum told the paper. Not, “this time next year, I will feed her to Anna Wintour.” It sounds like we might have to wait a while before we get to see Lottie Moss in hot pants. Or maybe she’ll take a different career path, and we never will. (I don’t think most 13-year-olds know what they want to do with their lives quite yet.) And you know what? That’s perfectly okay.
But here are some pictures of her anyway!
