Don’t quote me on this, but I’m pretty sure there’s a law somewhere out there in the ether that states if someone in your family is a major supermodel, you’re legally obligated to try your hand at the profession for yourself. I mean, that was probably at least a minor motivating factor for both of Cindy Crawford‘s kids, even if Kaia Gerber seems to be going more high-fashion than her brother, Presley Gerber. You know who else is starting to make it big? Lottie Moss, supermodel Kate Moss‘s 18-year-old half-sister.
Lottie’s been around for a little while now, but unless you follow young supermodels whose last name isn’t Hadid or Jenner religiously, you might not be too aware of her work. She rose to prominence relatively recently in a very Virgin Suicides-esque editorial for Vogue, but she’s yet to really take to the spotlight on her own before now. At long last, she’s finally lander her first cover (well, three covers, actually) for L’Officiel Netherlands. Gaze upon the awesomeness:

Isn’t it fun that we live in a world where a teenager can wear a Gucci dress before I can even afford to rent an apartment without a roommate?
For all the family connections she’s had, though, she doesn’t want to lean on her already famous last name for work. Lottie told The Daily Mail,
“I am who I am and I do what I want, whether that is modelling or anything else. The success of my sister does not affect me in my choices. I feel no pressure in that respect.”
I have to say, I wouldn’t be able to be in the same profession as a sibling without feeling at least some kind of pressure. I went to the same college as my older sister, and for a little while, it was tough to escape the Little Steinfeld expectations. I can’t even imagine trying to make my way in an already high-pressure career such as high-fashion modeling.
Lottie doesn’t even seem to be feeling that pressure. Just look at how confident and comfortable she seems while shooting these covers:
After a Vogue shoot and her first official solo cover, it’s only a matter of time until we see Lottie’s face everywhere we go.
