Kate’s right - there’s noth­ing ‘arty’ about pos­ing top­less at 15

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - COMMENT -

AF­TER pos­ing top­less for The Face mag­a­zine Kate Moss, right, came to em­body heroin chic and was cat­a­pulted to the rank of su­per­model, aged just 15.

But Kate says that she felt ‘pres­sured’ into strip­ping off and that she would never al­low her teenage daugh­ter fol­low in her foot­steps. ‘I look at her now, and she’s 15, and to think that I was go­ing top­less at her age is crazy,’ she says.

Kate is right, times have changed. When she was a teen, top­less mod­el­ling was avant garde and a bit arty whereas to­day, un­less there’s an icon in front of the camera, it’s con­sid­ered tacky and main­stream.
