Kate Moss recalls ‘running away’ after being asked to remove her bra aged 15 before ‘painful’ modelling experiences
Kate Moss has admitted to feeling ‘objectified’ throughout her modelling career, starting with one experience when she was asked to stand topless in front of a casting agent at the age of 15. The supermodel was scouted on a flight from New York to London when she was just 14 years old, and soared to prominence when she appeared on the cover of The Face magazine two years later. Despite her young age, Kate went on to join the likes of Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and Elle MacPherson as one of the golden supermodels of the 1990s. However, Kate, now 48, has revealed there were many uncomfortable moments during the early days of her career that left her feeling sexualised. She has recalled one incident where she was asked to meet with a photographer who worked for an underwear catalogue. ‘He said, “Take your top off”, and I took my top off, and I was really shy then about my body,’ the runway icon told Lauren Laverne on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs. ‘And he said, “Take your bra off”, and I could feel there was something wrong, so I got my stuff and I ran away.’ Despite being shaken by the incident, Kate believed it ‘sharpened’ her instincts and she can now ‘tell a wrong ’un from a mile away’. Kate’s cover shoot for The Face propelled her career but she didn’t have the easiest experience working with late photographer Corinne Day. She recalled: ‘I cried a lot.
