Kate Moss has revealed how she ran away from a photographer when she was 15 after he told her to take her bra off.

The 48-year-old supermodel recalled the disturbing underwear catalogue shoot 33 years ago on the latest edition of Desert Island Discs.

Kate, 48, said: “He said, ‘Take your top off ‘ and I took my top off. I was really shy then about my body and he said, ‘Take your bra off ‘. I could feel there was something wrong. I got my stuff and I ran off. I can tell a wrong ‘un a mile away.”

Kate also had bad memories of a later job, when she posed topless in 1992 with actor Mark Wahlberg in a Calvin Klein underwear shoot.

She told Lauren Laverne on the Radio 4 show that before the job she felt “vulnerable and scared” and had been prescribed Valium.

Kate is now a model agent with daughter Lila, 19, among her clients. “I’ve said to her you don’t have to do anything you don’t want to,” she revealed.

“I take care of my models. I make sure they’re with agents at shoots so there is someone there to say, ‘I don’t think that’s appropriate.’”



Kate said she had been made a scapegoat in the 1990s when she was accuse of glorifying thinness after photos of her in underwear appeared.

She said: “I was never anorexic, I never have been. I had never taken heroin. I was thin because I didn’t get fed at shoots or in shows and I had always been thin. It was a fashion shoot.

“It was shot at my flat and that is how I could afford to live at the time.”
