Lila Moss has taken the next step on a path well trodden by her supermodel mother by landing her first ever cover shoot for global fashion bible Vogue. 

The 19-year-old daughter of catwalk veteran Kate Moss makes a provocative style  statement  from the equally provocative British heritage brand Loewe in a vibrant shoot, conducted by photographer Steven Meisel.

Wearing a translucent silk and resin top with vaguely phallic overtones, Lila’s unconventional debut shoot suggests she’s keen to go her own way as a model, rather than emulate her mother. 

Inspired by racy Netflix period drama Bridgerton, her liberal make-up is carefully selected from a shimmering colour palette, with cosmetics from Dior, Loewe, and Prada used to complement her naturally pretty features.

The young model was in familiar territory during the shoot, with Miesel a regular collaborator with Kate having photographed her for Vogue on 43 occasions. 

Speaking about growing up in the spotlight, Lila joked that she was shocked by the attention surrounding her mother, admitting that she was surprised her friends even knew who she was. 

She explained: ‘I went to secondary school and everyone was like, “Oh, your mum’s 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? She’s old! She’s old and boring!”‘

Adding more about her relationship with her mother, Lila told the fashion bible: ‘I was quite protective over my mum. 

‘All my mum’s friends say that I was so scary as a child. I was quite serious. But also, I would always copy her. She would always have her head down and not look at the camera, so I’d always put my head down and not look at the camera. I still do it.’

Kate shares daughter Lila with journalist Jefferson, with whom she was in a relationship in the early Noughties.

Jefferson and Kate – who dated from 2001 to 2004 with Lila being born in 2002 – have an amicable relationship and would ensure their daughter spent a regular amount of time with each of them in her childhood.

While Lila still has a good relationship with both parents, she is often seen out with mum Kate as she is signed to her modelling agency.

Lila is also now the director of her own company, Grace Grove Ltd, a move that coincides with supermodel mum Kate winding down three of her firms.The name of the company is a nod to The Grove, the family home in North London, which Kate sold recently.
