Lila Moss landed her first-ever photo shoot for Vogue, following the path taken by her model mother, who has covered the world’s fashion book on 43 occasions.
The 19-year-old daughter of modeling veteran Kate Moss, 48, appeared in a sexy orange front-facing dress in another artistic shot by photographer Stephen Meisel.
During her conversation with Vogue, Lily—whose father was Jefferson Hack—revealed that her mother had tried talking to her about becoming a model, telling the young ones, “I wouldn’t recommend it.”
Wonderful! Lila Moss, 19, poses in a dramatic orange front-facing dress in another artistic shot by photographer Steven Meisel, during her first-ever photoshoot for Vogue magazine.
Laila was captivating in her voluminous, vibrant dress, which she carried over a nude colored sheer underlayment.
The blonde hair tresses are designed for the beauty in a subtle look with a soft long fringe and a thin braid framing her face.
With her arms raised for a gorgeous couture photo, Lila’s flawless look was embellished with a thick dusting of pastel shades, in a dramatic fashion.
Inspired by the racy Netflix period drama Bridgerton, her liberal makeup was carefully selected from a shimmering palette, using cosmetics from Dior, Loewe, and Prada to complement her naturally beautiful features.
Thrilling: Lila gets her first-ever photoshoot for Vogue, following the path taken by her model mom, who has covered the world’s fashion book on 43 occasions.
Lila made her first modeling debut at the age of 15 – campaigning for Marc Jacobs Beauty – and is only a year older than her mother when she got into the business.

Kate first became famous for starting modeling at the age of 14 and was wary of Leila getting into the field but changed her mind when Leila signed up for her own agency so she could guide her.
Laila told British Vogue: ‘My mum always makes me feel bad [modelling]. She was always like, “If you want to do it, you can, but I don’t recommend it.”
Despite her mother’s fears, Laila insisted she wasn’t concerned about the idea that modeling success could bring about the fame her parents had tried to protect her from.
She pondered, “Not really. I’ve seen it myself, so I’m better able to handle it. I had to say no to people. But I’m always nice!”
Kate admitted that she felt unsupported as a young model, previously saying: ‘Nobody takes care of you mentally. There is tremendous pressure to do what you have to do.
Laila explained: “When I was younger, she was afraid of falling into the same trap, I think. I remember my mom asking me to do something with her when I was 13. I said yes. Then I got up and said, “I can’t do that!” I was very shy – and I had a calendar.

Leila also admitted that she thought her famous mother was “old and boring”.
She said, “I went to high school and everyone was like, ‘Oh, your mom Kate Moss! You don’t really have a filter when you’re that young and I was like, ‘How do you know who she is? sold out! It’s old and boring! “
However, these days, I understand what a style icon actually is.
Layla explained: “In the past three or four years, I’ve discovered that her style is really cool. I have to admit that now. It does not have a good choice of path. She only has pajamas. He might hate me saying that. She doesn’t want anyone to know that she’s wearing sneakers.
A slice of the old podium! Lily followed in her modeling mother’s footsteps after having her first modeling party at age 15 – only a year older than Kate when she started – and the pair are now a force in the modeling world (they were photographed at a Versace special event during Milan Fashion Week in September)
Lily’s father is journalist Jefferson Hack, with whom Kate had an affair in the early Noughties.
Jefferson and Kate—who dated from 2001 to 2004 with the birth of Lily in 2002—have a friendly relationship and will ensure that their daughter spends regular time with both of them in her childhood.
Kate has appeared on 43 massive Vogue covers, with former British Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman singing the supermodel’s tributes in her column for The Mail On Sunday in 2020.

She noted: ‘It was the extraordinary journey of a Croydon schoolgirl discovered by Storm Models in 1988 when she was just 14 years old, a journey that undoubtedly made her one of the most famous – and at the same time mysterious – women in the world.
It was in March 1993 when she first put her, aged 19, on the cover of British Vogue. By that time, she was known to fashion insiders and was already on the cover of The Face, but this, her first Vogue cover, was a start in big time.
“There are moments when fashion turns on its axis – and this was one of them.”
