If you’re unfamiliar with Kate Moss’s younger half-sister, Lottie Moss, that’s about to change. The 18-year-old up-and-coming model just landed her first (likely of many) Vogue cover, for the glossy’s Paris edition. The porcelain-skinned teen appears alongside another rising star model, Lucky Blue Smith, perhaps the most in-demand male model around right now. The duo were photographed by Mario Testino for Vogue Paris’s May cover, and both wore glamorous metallic Saint Laurent looks designed by Hedi Slimane.
Lottie has steadily been following in her sister’s footsteps, signing with Kate’s former longtime agency, Storm Models, at 16 years old; landing a campaign for Calvin Klein at around the same time; and making her first appearance on the runway last year (for Sonia Rykiel). The timing couldn’t be better, as it’s been nearly 20 years since Kate’s first Vogue Paris cover (also shot by Testino, in 1999), not to mention that she’s the star of her own May cover, for British Vogue. Vogue Paris Editor in Chief Emmanuelle Alt says it best in her editorial for the issue: “Who will be the runway star of tomorrow?” Lottie Moss and Lucky Blue Smith are clearly strong contenders.
