Mini Models: Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Miranda Kerr Before They Were Famous

16 October 2012 by

Well, well, it seems supermodels don't magically fall from the skies in perfect glory afterall. In a revelation shocking to most of us, they begin their career in more modest surroundings, and looking very natural. The clever lot at CR Fashion Book have released two photos to The Cut of superstars Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss before they were sipping the bubbly and catwalking around the world.  

The photographs, taken by photographer Jamie Morgan, showcase the two young beauties in black-and-white, adding to the timeless quality. At the time, Jamie had ‘no idea’ that these Bambi-eyed babies would become two of the most famous supermodels in the world!

While most of us would find a photo of us wearing basket-weave fascinator and lip biting from our youth cringe-worthy, the young Naomi proves she had the supermodel in the making by looking adorable. La Moss may now be the ultimate glamourpuss, but she's sweet and innocent in this great candid shot.

Unfortunately, not everyone can make their way to stardom without some embarrassing pictures along the way. Remember Posh's trip down model lane? Even star Diane Kruger and designer Nicole Ricci had previous fashion faux-pas. However, these fashion mavens all fought through rejection and catapolted to superstardom, and these photos show just how far they've come. Take a look at the gallery to see Naomi, Kate and others before they were queens of the catwalk.

Grace Cowey (Tue Oct 16 16:20:15 BST 2012): With the exception of Victoria Beckham, they all looked absolutely stunning in the 'before' pictures and not at all what I would call 'surprisingly human'!
Jeff Sprinkles (Tue Oct 16 16:31:52 BST 2012): 'Surprisingly human'. Well I wasn't expecting...goats? It's no surprise that beautiful adults were beautiful teenagers :) I loathe these 'before they were famous' features...
Denise Grayson (Sun Jun 30 21:54:29 BST 2013): The supposed 'before' of Linda Evangelista is from the height of her stardom - Grazia should know this!
