Growing up can be particularly dreadful. Even more so when you grow up in the spotlight with a sister that is a supermodel. That was the case for 24-year-old Lottie Moss.
Many assume that being a part of the fashion world is the be-all and end-all. But that couldn’t be further from the truth for the British fashion model. The 5’6″ blonde was born in London as Charlotte Moss and was immediately thrown into the modeling world at the tender age of 16. A decision she now regrets. In April of 2022, Lottie Moss was quoted saying, “she was ‘very unhappy’ and ‘never felt like I belonged” in an interview on the Call Her Daddy podcast.
Other than sharing a last name, golden locks, and careers, the two sisters used their model talents to go down different paths. Understandably, Lottie Moss wanted to have a separate identity outside of her sister, Kate. And recently, Lottie has been working hard to achieve just that. This can be seen most notably on Lottie Moss’ Instagram account.
Lottie Moss Bares All
Back in the early days of modeling, print was customarily a model’s canvas. But now with the internet and social media, most aspiring models and influencers are paving their way through other ways of exposure. Like them, Lottie Moss decided traditional modeling wasn’t her thing, and she set her sights on other avenues where the younger Moss could express herself the way she wanted. Enter OnlyFans and Glow. For those who don’t know what OnlyFans is, it’s an online platform primarily for adults where influencers can create content for subscribers and get paid for it.
Lottie decided to hop on board with the usually-perceived x-rated site in order to make a living on her own terms. “I wanted something of my own,” Lottie said in a statement. Moss’ social media accounts most likely share the same amount of exposure that her OnlyFans does. It definitely warrants an NSFW rating.
As for whether the senior Moss is happy about her younger sister’s intimate images that she shares with subscribers, it’s been quoted from a source close to Kate that she “has felt straight-up mortified…about Lottie and what she is doing with her career.”
No Longer a Mini-me
Last year, Lottie Moss can be seen in a variety of images with pink hair, her favorite color. Clearly, Lottie wants to look as different as possible from her famous sister. Her efforts also include having some work done. In total, Lottie Moss admitted in an Instagram live video that she has gone under the knife for her lips and breasts, and has fillers in her jaw and temples while also getting Botox in her forehead.
Both Moss sisters are naturally thin and the ideal height and size for models, but since her cosmetic enhancements, Lottie has separated herself from Kate while aligning herself with the industry standards of today of not being a size zero.
Exclusion from Family Matters
Lottie’s infamous scandals have kept her from being a part of her older sister’s modeling agency. Could it be because of her sisters’ feelings on Lottie exposing herself or the fact that Lottie felt as if “everything was handed to [her].”? Regardless, even with Kate’s past alleged association with drugs, Lottie’s admittance to using is a lot more worrisome. Kate took her addiction battle very seriously, while Lottie, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to be taking her habits as seriously, and that doesn’t sit too well with the older sister.
Her niece, Lila, a model as well, has outright refused to have anything to do with Lottie.
Lottie Moss’ Troublesome Lifestyle
Despite Lottie Moss’ entrepreneurial spirit, she is no longer represented by Storm Model Management agency due to altering her appearance past what was acceptable, and her “wild lifestyle and cocaine use”.
In early 2022, Lottie sought treatment and checked into a rehab facility for cocaine use and mental health issues in Arizona. Weeks after her stint, Moss was still seen smoking in a video on her account on OnlyFans, with dad, Peter, telling The Sun that she’s “fine”. It was later revealed in the summer of 2020, that Lottie Moss had been diagnosed with ADHD.
It was also recently reported that Lottie might soon risk an Instagram ban due to her provocative posts on the media site.
While her sister is staying low-key in Cotswolds, Lottie is riding the fast track in both her hometown of London and Los Angeles, where she spends the majority of her time. So it might not seem the model sisters are on the same page right now. But, Lottie Moss has absolutely no qualms about charting her own path. Can we blame her? No. It’s no secret that the world of high-fashion models borders on nightmarish. But are there healthier ways to circumvent the pressure? Absolutely.
