Kate Moss, Age 14: Model's Teen Portraits Headed For Auction
What did Kate Moss look like before she was famous? Photographer David Ross's portraits of the supermodel at age 14 reveal her as a fresh-faced girl on the cusp of a major career.
"Kate was a cool character," said Ross of the photos he took in October 1988, which will be be sold through Bloomsbury Auctions on Nov. 23. "She seemed like a tough or resilient typical teenager, comfortably fronting me up, perhaps covering up her nerves. I suppose what was refreshing was that she was honest. She wasn't trying to prove anything or act above her station. She didn't try to adopt a model attitude of self-absorption and superiority, which at the time was becoming public via media sensation. She was untarnished. A blank canvas, as other writers have put it."
Each of the three pictures are expected to reach up to £1,200, just over $1,905, at current exchange. Take a peek at them here.
