Kate's First Ever Photo Shoot: Unseen Images Revealed

Kate Moss may possess one of the most recognizable faces in the world, but once upon a time she was just a normal — if ridiculously high-cheekboned — teen from Croydon.
We'd always thought that the iconic Corrine Day photos for The Face were the earliest fashion shots of Kate, but turns out we were wrong. David Ross was asked to shoot the 14-year-old Kate by his friend Sarah Doukas, founder of Storm Models. He shot three rolls of film just weeks after she had been scouted at an airport. Ross then forgot about the film until a few years ago, and after auctioning a couple of shots last year, the rest are about to go on display in London. The exhibition, titled Kate Moss: Roll 1, opens on October 31 at the Lawrence Alkin Gallery, and many of the photos on display have never been seen before.
"She was against the grain of any other look of the time. She was a cool kid and refreshing in that sense. She just had an attitude and an expression that kind of came easy, I guess", Ross told Vogue UK.
"These pictures are proof that Kate Moss holds the same mystique as Marilyn Monroe," he said. "In many ways, Kate has the sense of just knowing what she can do to people looking at her, via camera or not." Also: are we alone in digging that sweater? (Vogue UK)
