Rare Kate Moss Pictures Fetch Thousands At Auction


Kate Moss might be one of the most iconic models of all time - so it's not surprising that early pictures of her have fetched £5,700 at an auction house in Bloomsbury.

The images were taken by phgotographer David Ross and supervised by Kate's first agent, Storm Model boss Sarah Doukas.

The collection had a £1,200 estimate, which it exceeded by four and a half thousand pounds.

David, who now works as an actor, describes working with the model on the Bloomsbury Auctions website. "Kate was a cool character. She seemed like a tough or resilient typical teenager, comfortably fronting me up, perhaps covering up her nerves...I suppose what was refreshing was that she was honest."

David's comments chime with other people's perceptions of the model. "She wasn't trying to prove anything or act above her station. She didn't try to adopt a model attitude of self absorption and superiority, which at the time was becoming public via media sensation.

He added "I would absolutely love to meet Kate again....to ask her how much she remembers of our meeting and her first experience of what she remembers of our meeting...to listen to the true extent of her hourney from where she sat with me all those years ago, would be very special indeed."

Kate attended the Colette store in Paris for a signing earlier in the week - and fans were told to avoid taking pictures as "she doesn't like it". Which seems odd, coming from a model...
