Lila Moss: Exploring the Life of Kate Moss' Daughter

by Tasha Mayberry


Like mother, like daughter! Kate Moss is the proud parent of one child, her daughter Lila, 21, whom she welcomed with her ex-boyfriend Jefferson Hack on September 29, 2002, in London. Despite Kate and Hack parting ways shortly after Lila’s birth, they have continued to co-parent effectively and remain friendly—Hack even attended Kate’s 2011 wedding to Jamie Hince. “I felt like, now I’ve got a partner in crime, I’m never going to have to be on my own again,” Kate shared with British Vogue in 2007, when Lila was just four years old. Initially hesitant about Lila entering the modeling world, Kate has since embraced her daughter’s career choice and has become Lila’s biggest supporter. “I will support her obviously,” Kate remarked in 2018. “I will be her momager! She can, if she wants to. I will support her in anything she wants to do.”

Kate was virtually present to cheer on Lila’s runway debut in 2020 when the then-18-year-old opened the Miu Miu show at Paris Fashion Week. The budding star has since landed campaigns with Fendi, Versace, and Calvin Klein. In January 2024, Kate was front row at the Dior Men’s fashion show in Paris, with her daughter sitting right behind her.

Here’s everything to know about Kate Moss’ daughter, Lila.

Born and Raised in London

Kate welcomed Lila, her first and only child with ex Jefferson Hack, on September 29, 2002. The supermodel was 28 years old at the time of Lila’s birth in London. Describing herself as a “workaholic” in 2008, Kate always made it a priority to be home in time for Lila’s nightly routine, which she described as “the best part of the day.” “I kiss her goodnight, and she’s so adorable. I try to spend as much time as I can with her,” she said of a then-6-year-old Lila. Raised away from the spotlight in London, Lila made her modeling debut at age 13, appearing on the cover of Vogue Italia alongside her mother in 2016, followed by a solo cover in 2020.

A Flourishing Modeling Career

Lila began her own modeling career in 2018 as the newest face of Marc Jacobs Beauty, represented by her mother’s modeling agency, Kate Moss Agency. Since then, she has featured in Miu Miu’s SS20 campaign and made her runway debut for the Italian fashion house in October 2020, opening their spring/summer 2021 Paris Fashion Week show. Kate later shared how nervous she was watching her daughter, expressing immense pride from their kitchen as she and her friends watched the show via livestream.

Originally Hesitant About Modeling

In her younger years, Kate expressed a desire for Lila to grow up away from the limelight, hoping for her to have a normal upbringing far from fame. By 2022, however, Lila revealed in an interview with British Vogue that while her mother initially discouraged her from modeling, Kate had since fully supported her decision to pursue it.

Runway and Campaign Appearances Together

Kate and Lila have since appeared together in high-profile fashion events and campaigns, such as the Fendi couture show during 2021 Paris Fashion Week and a Fendi campaign in 2024, where they were photographed by Craig Dean showcasing the brand’s iconic Peekaboo bags.

Learning Beauty Tricks From Her Daughter

Despite Kate’s extensive experience with top beauty professionals, she admits that Lila has introduced her to new makeup techniques. “She teaches me everything,” Kate told Harper’s Bazaar in 2018. Lila, who keeps up with beauty trends and blogs, has taken on the role of resident beauty expert at home, often sharing tips with her mother.

Living with Type 1 Diabetes

Lila has been open about her life with type 1 diabetes, managing her condition with an insulin pump, which she has proudly displayed during high-profile fashion shows and campaigns, inspiring many with her openness and advocacy.

Social Media Tributes to Her Mom

Lila often celebrates her mother’s birthday with heartfelt Instagram posts, sharing throwback photos and expressing her love and admiration for Kate.

Fashion Forward: Raiding Kate’s Closet

Lila also enjoys delving into her mother’s extensive and iconic wardrobe, often borrowing clothes and accessories, much to Kate’s delight.

Met Gala Appearances

Lila and Kate continue to make public appearances together, such as at the Met Gala in 2023, where they showcased their impeccable style in coordinating Fendi couture, highlighting their close bond and shared fashion sensibilities.
