Kate Moss Talks About ‘Pressure’ She Felt To Pose Topless As A Young Model ‘I Did Not Like It’
Kate Moss opened up about the “pressure” she felt to pose topless when she was a 15-year-old model, explaining that she “did not like it all when she first started.”
“Yes, there was pressure,” the 44-year-old supermodel explained on “Megyn Kelly Today” on Wednesday. “I worked with a woman photographer called Corinne Day and she always liked me with no top on and I did not like it at all when I first started.”
“And then I suppose–[photographer] Mario [Sorrenti] was my boyfriend so I was kind of used to it, but I was still always like, ‘Can I just put some clothes on,'” she added. “But that was the job so I kind of just did it.”

Moss then said if she could offer advice to young models it would be to tell them that “they don’t have to do it.” She also shared that she wouldn’t let her 15-year-old daughter, Lila Grace Moss-Hack, “do it” either.
“They don’t have to do it if they don’t want to,” the supermodel explained. “I wouldn’t let my daughter do it. I look at her now and she’s 15, and to think that I was going topless at her age is crazy.”
But she reiterated that she would, of course, support her daughter if she wanted a career in modeling. Lila Grace has already followed her mom’s footsteps, landing her first campaign in 2017.
“I would support her obviously,” Moss shared. “I’ll be her manager … Yes, I’ll be her momager. If she wants to, I’ll support her in anything else she wants to do.”
