Up for bidding next week are three photos of the “heroin chic” supermodel from her very first sitting back in 1988. Then 14-year-old Kate Moss was photographed in beautiful black-and-white by David Ross, and Bloomsbury Auctions expects the images to go for up to £1200 each!
Before all the glossy covers, grunge romances, designer runways, and drug scandals, there were these immaculate monochrome photos of a teenage Kate Moss during her first sitting in October 1988. Photographer David Ross took these soon after Moss was discovered at the John F. Kennedy airport in New York en route from her Bahamas vacation.
Today, Kate Moss is a household name uttered by every sartorially obsessed figure out there and the photo above by @sebastianerras just proves how much of a fashion phenom she has become.
