Rarely Seen Images of a 14-Year-Old Kate Moss Taken During Her First Ever Photoshoot in 1988

Captured by photographer Owen Scarbiena in the summer of 1988, the iconic supermodel is seen as an 'innocent' teenager posing on the tennis courts in Battersea Park in London.

Speaking in an interview with the Vogue, the photographer recalled: “In the summer of 1988, I was shooting an image series of models in designer blouses and sports underwear when I got a call from Sarah Doukas, director of Storm Models, asking me come and meet their new girl. Her name was Kate Moss and they were keen for me to shoot some of my clean, minimalist test shots of her as they thought I'd love her look. As it happened, she fitted in precisely to the project I was shooting that summer. The rest was fashion and cultural history and those images started her meteoric rise to fashion icon and queen of the catwalk.”

“She was unimposing, innocent, fresh, unaffected and had a striking, nymph-like beauty,” he said. “I loved the way that she sat for me in that shoot, because she demonstrated that she had no pre-conceived ideas about how models are supposed to pose or stand.”
