✨Introducing #LilaMoss, the newest face of #MarcJacobsBeauty.✨ ⠀ ⠀ "When I met @lilamoss for the first time in 2008, I was on a holiday in Ibiza and went to Formentera for the day to visit with her mom, Kate Moss, and other friends and family. At just 6 years old, Lila’s strong character, demeanor and great beauty was already very apparent. The next time I saw Lila was in August of 2011 at Kate’s wedding, her character was even more dynamic and her beauty even greater. This past July is that last time I saw Lila when Kate brought her to the set of our @marcbeauty campaign shoot with @davidsimsofficial. It was a bit surreal to have Kate in the studio with Lila as it brought back memories of the first time I met Kate when she was 18 years old and cast to walk for the Perry Ellis’ Spring/Summer 1993 Grunge Collection. ✨Kate and I become very close after the Grunge Collection and remain lifelong friends (much of which is very well documented!). When Lila came to NYC to work with us in July to be the face of our latest beauty campaign it felt a bit like an intersection of my personal and professional life coming full circle as we gathered in the studio with @davidsimsofficial, @kegrand, @guidopalau, @dianekendal and @katemossagency. ✨It is with great pride and a full heart that I share this (first) image from our shoot with the incredible @lilamoss in her first ever campaign for @marcbeauty. Lila’s beauty, composure, patience and kindness made this project even more special than I could have imagined. With each look we photographed, she got into each character effortlessly and gracefully. Thank you, Lila, for being a part of this extremely special project and thank you, @katemossagency and @jeffersonhack for allowing us the privilege to work with your beautiful daughter. Love, @themarcjacobs" ⠀ ⠀ Photographed by @DavidSimsOfficial ⠀ Styled by @KeGrand ⠀ Hair by @GuidoPalau ⠀ Makeup by @Diane.Kendal

They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, and that’s certainly the case with Lila Grace Moss. The daughter of legendary fashion icon Kate Moss just landed her first big modeling campaign, as the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty.

Lila’s first major fashion commitment comes only a few days after she turned 16. The first photo Marc Jacobs unveiled made it clear she’s a natural, just like her mom. The young model can be seen posing with a bold purple cat-eye and a glossy nude lipstick, courtesy of makeup artist Diane Kendal.

It was just a matter of time before Lila Grace Moss broke into the fashion world, and it’s quite touching Marc Jacobs was the one to give her this big break. He’s been friends with her mom for years and developed a close bond with their whole family while Lila was still a little girl. He thanked her parents for allowing her to work on this extremely special project and gushed about her strong character, demeanor, and great beauty.

“Lila’s beauty, composure, patience and kindness made this project even more special than I could have imagined. With each look we photographed, she got into each character effortlessly and gracefully,” wrote Jacobs on Instagram.
