British fashion sites have been buzzing about a new face who is poised to take the modeling world by storm--some going as far as suggesting she may be the next Kate Moss. And at 11 years old, she's one of the young ones. She also happens to be the offspring of rock royalty--and really, really pretty. We mentioned her in our news roundup yesterday, but here are some more details.
Anais Gallagher, who turns twelve in a couple of weeks, is the progeny of former Oasis member Noel Gallagher and his ex-wife Meg Matthews. It was Matthews' proud tweet of a Mario Testino-lensed photo of her daughter that sent everyone into Anais Gallagher obsession. In fact, she tweeted the same photo twice in one day, which may be a little stage mom-ish, but we can hardly blame her--the photo (at left) is gorge.
Her only other modeling gig that we've been able to dig up was for Paul Smith, which you can see in the adorable video below (she's the blond one with the striped shirt and yellow cardigan). But she's already garnering Kate Moss comparisons--Sam Mcknight tweeted at Matthews "My God, Anais is a beauty. Move over KM!" And the Telegraph points out that Gallagher's heart-shaped face is similar to Moss' in the Testino photo. She may have some competition though.
Moss' own 14-year old half-sister Lottie Moss, who recently started modeling, has been subject to the same comparison. However, Gallagher is practically part of the family. According to Grazia, Meg Matthews and Kate Moss are longtime friends and Gallagher has play dates with 9-year-old Lila Grace.
Little Anais isn't wasting any time--she's already been signed to Select, a modeling agency that reps names like Agyness Deyn, Natasha Poly and Erin Heatherton. And so far, everything she's done seems totally age-appropriate, which makes us happy. See below for some shots of her from Select's website and the Paul Smith video, in which she also sings. Could she already be a model slash?
