Did Kate Moss Get Vanessa Paradis Sloppy Seconds?

It’s hard to imagine that there was once a time when supermodel Kate Moss was considered a second choice. In fact, she was a second choice behind, ironically, Vanessa Paradis for the Calvin Klein campaign that made her famous. The supermodel explained in an interview conducted by close friend Jess Hallett that she only got the job after Vanessa turned it down.

Interestingly Kate was also unsure about taking the job that would require her to pose topless with Marc Walhberg. Kate went to Paul Cavaco for advice and he told her, “You know what? You’re so small, you might not last. It could be all over in a season! Take the money and run!”. Little did she know that would turn into an eight year working relationship with the American label.

Kate Moss was scouted at just age 14, take a peep here at the first professional photographs shot of the budding supermodel and hope that they will be included in her upcoming documentary.
