Kate's little sis Lottie a star in the making

SHE has a fresh-faced beauty that she shares with supermodel Kate Moss.

So it's no wonder Moss's little sister Lottie has been signed up by a major agency to model for Calvin Klein Jeans.

The black and white photo shoot is reminiscent of the set of pictures that launched Kate Moss's career 21 years ago.

Kate was announced as ambassador for the brand in the 1990s.

Now her 16-year-old half-sister looks set to take the modelling world by storm.

Lottie has clearly picked up some tips from long-time Calvin Klein star Kate, and looks effortlessly cool in front of the camera in the series of retro shots.

The teen has been snapped up by Storm, the same agency that discovered 14-year-old Kate at New York's JFK airport in 1988.

Lottie was photographed wearing key pieces from the Calvin Klein brand by Michael Avedon.

In another blast from the past, Michael is the grandson of renowned photographer Richard Avedon.

Avedon Snr was behind the famed 1981 Calvin Klein jeans campaign featuring Brooke Shields with the tagline: "You want to know what comes between me and my Calvins? Nothing."

On shooting the portraits of Lottie, Michael Avedon said: "She truly represents the essence of the Calvin Klein girl.

"Intriguing innocence with utter beauty - it was wonderful to photograph this beautiful young lady."

Lottie has been on Storm's books since she was 13, but the company didn't release any professional photos until her 16th birthday in January.

The Calvin Klein Jeans "x mytheresa.com The Re-Issue Project" features limited-edition versions of nine of the brand's most iconic pieces, including jeans, sweatshirts and T-shirts.

Speaking about the range, a spokesman for mytheresa.com said: "This Calvin Klein Jeans capsule is all about a nostalgia for the Nineties and that whole look feeling very right again.

"It now feels like the perfect time to re-issue the brand's iconic hits to a new generation."
