If you’ve read any social media updates today, you likely know that English supermodel Kate Moss just turned 40. And of course, she still looks absolutely flawless. What else would you expect from Kate Moss? She’s Kate Moss! Caught rocking her signature leopard print in coat form, she’s as poised and glowing as ever.

Well, in the midst of her birthday celebration, the fashion icon received a classic Porsche from Sir Phillip Green (TopShop owner) and announced the launch of her illustrated biography (hell yeah). But she’s not the only Moss making headlines.

Little sister Lottie Moss has some big news of her own. Merely a week after signing with Storm Model Management, Lottie’s first editorial has made its debut. The editorial, From Lottie with Love, can be seen in Dazed & Confused’s February Issue. You can check out the photos (taken by Sean and Seng) on their website here.

The 16-year-old is shown posing in everything from a cozy sweater to a dreamy polka dot dress, and damn, she looks amazing in all of it. I really admire the styling that Robbie Spencer did for the shoot because the clothing is elegant and sophisticated, but it doesn’t take away from the radiance of her youth.

What do you think of this editorial? Is Lottie the next big thing? Comment with your thoughts.




I was a Runway Walkin’ 60s Lady

This past friday, I had the honor of modeling in Pittsburgh’s Vintage Mixer fashion show.  It was a ModCloth sponsored event which featured clothing from a series of incredibly inspiring vendors.  Haute Vibe, Hey Betty, Highway Robbery, TranquiliT Reclaimed Vintage, and Lana Neumeyer were among the featured retailers.

Most of the models wore girly dresses, so I was pumped when I found out I would be wearing embroidered pants, a camo top, and a men’s denim jacket.  Not to mention I loved rockin’ Ray Bans and big hair!

Kate Colussy, the owner of Highway Robbery, said she wanted my outfit to have a Woodstock vibe.  She wanted me to be “the girl who wore her boyfriend’s shirts.”  I absolutely adored the idea because I felt like it gave me a persona to work with as I walked.

I think that’s why I love vintage clothing so much.  When I find clothes in a thrift store, I always imagine who wore them before me.  How did that person act?  Why did they dress the way they did?  You just don’t get that kind of fun when you go to the mall.

And so I leave you with two important words of advice: shop vintage!
