From Vogue Paris:
Shots from Britain’s biggest supermodel’s first ever shoot are set to go on sale at London’s Bloomsbury Auctions, in a charity auction November 23. The pictures were taken of Kate Moss back in 1988 by David Ross, when she was just 14.
Spotted at New York’s JFK airport at the tender age of 14, Kate Moss has gone on to inspire numerous artists, designers and photographers. Since her first steps in fashion, she has attracted an unprecedented level of public interest throughout a successful - and sometimes controversial - career. After nearly 25 years in the industry, three shots from her first every shoot are set to be auctioned to the highest bidder at Bloomsbury Auctions in London. Photographer David Ross was behind the camera, and these early shots capture Kate’s very essence, the willowy figure, nonchalant charm and breezy attitude that would eventually take her to the dizzying heights of icon status. Estimated at between £1,200 and £1,905, the photographs will be sold at auction November 23. All proceeds will go to charity.
