Kate Moss, Age 14: Model's Teen Portraits Headed For Auction

Kate Moss's Teenage Photos to Be Auctioned

What did Kate Moss look like before she was famous? Photographer David Ross's portraits of the supermodel at age 14 reveal her as a fresh-faced girl on the cusp of a major career.

"Kate was a cool character," said Ross of the photos he took in October 1988, which will be be sold through Bloomsbury Auctions on Nov. 23. "She seemed like a tough or resilient typical teenager, comfortably fronting me up, perhaps covering up her nerves. I suppose what was refreshing was that she was honest. She wasn't trying to prove anything or act above her station. She didn't try to adopt a model attitude of self-absorption and superiority, which at the time was becoming public via media sensation. She was untarnished. A blank canvas, as other writers have put it."

Each of the three pictures are expected to reach up to £1,200, just over $1,905, at current exchange. Take a peek at them here.
