Just a couple of months ago, her reddened skin from the carelessness of the unforgiving sun of Formentera showed more of the adolescent that she is still than the top-model that has yet to be done. But her participation in the Miu Miu Spring-Summer 2021 fashion show by the grace of Miuccia Prada, this week, has been the most talked about debut in recent times, only comparable to that of Kaia Gerber at Versace when I was 17; yes, Kaia was held by her mother, the eternal Cindy Crawford. In the case of LilaGrace Moss has had to wait until the age of majority to receive approval from his mother, Kate Moss, who, apparently, does not even have a relationship with Miuccia Prada beyond what is strictly professional. «Thank you for allowing me to debut in the dream show, “wrote the young Moss on her Instagram profile. in direct allusion to Miuccia.

Beyond a question of solvency or influence, Lila Grace Moss exemplifies, once again, that the elite of the models is partly dominated by a series of clans: Gerber-Crawford, Hadid, Kardashian-Jenner… and now Moss (LottieKate’s sister has also made her way).

Lila Grace Moss is the result of the romantic relationship between her famous mother and the fashion magazine editor Jefferson Hack. And although Miu Miu’s has been her baptism in fashion shows, her first photo session was done in the company of her mother for the camera of Mario Sorrenti for a cover of «Vogue Italia». At that time she was a 14-year-old baby and she could do little else except her first advertising campaign with her good friend the singer Stella Jones and an exceptional pose for Marc Jacobs Beauty. Everyone was expecting a meteoric rise from Lila and in fact she signed with her mother’s agency and her father reserved the cover of “Dazed & Confused” for her.

But Kate Moss put the brakes on her daughter in time and strongly opposed her working before she turned 18.

According to himself Marc Jacobs to “W” magazine last summer, “Lila was reaching that age where a daughter rebels and Kate felt she had to open her hand somewhat,” in reference to recalling that session for the Perfect fragrance campaign. “Kate did not allow Lila to participate in any advertising campaign, in the same way that Cindy Crawford does not allow Kaia Gerber to do anything.”

Without a doubt, the Miu Miu show last Tuesday is the greatest milestone in the incipient career of the smallest of the Moss, who, in her determination to be taken seriously as a professional and not as a mere “daughter of .. . ”, Took good advantage of the opportunity to walk (behind closed doors, yes) with 40 other models in the Miu Miu show.
