Kate Moss, Roll 1: The Supermodel As You’ve Never Seen Her Before

The British model's very first photoshoot has been unveiled prior to a new exhibition at London's Lawrence Alkin Gallery.

Kate Moss’ very first modelling shoot is set to be unveiled in a brand new London exhibition, and we’ve been allowed a peek at the striking retro shots before they’re officially released to the public…

The British model’s first ever ‘warm-up’ pictures will be displayed in the Lawrence Alkin Gallery on October 31 in an exhibition entitled Roll 1.

Captured by photographer David Ross back in 1988, the grey scale photos show a then 14-year-old Kate looking every bit the budding supermodel.

With her hair quaffed into a relaxed retro style, the Croydon-born teen boasts flawless skin and a surprisingly sassy and assertive stare for a model finding herself in front of the lens for the first time. Global supermodel success was pretty much inevitable, then…

The candid images also reflect the British style icon’s world-famous ability to pull off any garment she steps into – even in a slouchy ’80s sweat, teenage Kate radiates that much-coveted cool factor the super continues to make look so easy.

The photographs, which David confessed he had forgotten all about until a few years ago, were taken as a favour to his Storm founder friend Sarah Doukas who had scouted Kate at an airport just a few weeks previously.

David is set to reveal the full photoreel at the London gallery on October 31, where we will see more of fresh-faced Kate’s first foray into the modelling industry.

We’ll be first in the queue.
