As Kate Moss Week continues apace here on Grazia Daily, news has just arrived about a mini-Moss in the making. You may remember a teeny tiny event that took place in 2011 - the joining in holy matrimony of The Kate Moss and Mr Jamie Hince, rock and roll trilby aficionado. And as you may recall, there was an altogether excessive number of bridesmaids. But it was one of the beauties who caught the beady eye of top model scouts.
Oh yes, it’s Kate’s half sister! She kept that one quiet, didn’t she? Her name is Lottie Moss and she is fair of hair and cute of face, with more than a passing resemblance to her supermodel big sis. At the time of the wedding, she was just 13 years old and her mother wasn't too keen on thrusting her into the limelight.

‘Lottie looks beautiful and fresh — a very English rose look,' said the founder of Premier Models, Carol White. 'Her mother is quite right to wait until she is 14 and has developed more but she has wonderful features and could definitely make a model. Generally you need the height. Kate is the exception to the rule because models need to be 5ft 9in to 5ft 11in. I think Lottie would make a lovely young model.' Doesn’t she just!
Fast forward six months and Lottie had a test shoot with Storm Model Management under her belt, before stepping into Kate's big Louboutins and posing up a storm for photographer Andrea Carter Bowman. Then it all went quiet - until last night when the little stunner took to Twitter last night.
'Wot u sayin,' she tweeted to her followers along with a screengrab from Storm's website (see the full page here) that shows her portfolio. Lottie is now almost 16-years-old and seems ready to take the world by, err, storm.
Of course, Mossy herself was discovered in 1988 by Storm Model Management founder Sarah Doukas while queuing for a flight home from JFK airport. She went on to bag her first cover for The Face at just 16 and exploded into the fashion world thanks to a black and white shoot by Corinne Day. Since then Kate has been unstoppable. Will it be the same for Lottie? Watch this space...
