The New Face of RED Valentino? Lottie Moss

Lottie, little sister to supermodel Kate Moss, is gaining momentum in her modeling career. Following a covetable role in Calvin Klein ads – and trailing in her older sibling’s footsteps – the Brit’s doe-eyed face now stars in RED Valentino’s winter campaign.

Photographed by industry legend Tim Walker, 16-year-old Lottie lets her playful side show in the quirky cartoon-inspired shoot. Looks like Kendall Jenner might have some competition for reigning teen model.

The Best-Dressed List: This Week’s Winning Looks

EACH WEEK, OUR FASHION EDITOR DECIDES WHO DESERVES TOP HONORS

 
Celebrities favored the box clutch this week, pairing the chic handheld accessory with clean silhouettes (but bold details). These three looks, featuring geometric embroidery, three-dimensional folds, and leather accents, are equal parts classic and modern. And of course, they push boundaries in all the right ways.

Best-Dressed List

  1. Camilla Belle looked to Carolina Herrera‘s Spring 2015 Collection for an elegant red look at an event in Hollywood.
  2. Kerry Washington wore an origami-inspired Calvin Klein Collection dress for the 21st Annual Women in Hollywood celebration in Los Angeles. Her best outfit add-on (blue eyeliner) might not be what you’d expect, but she pulled it off with ease.
  3. Michelle Williams was head-to-toe perfection in Louis Vuitton at the opening of the Fondation Louis Vuitton. Edgier than her typical red-carpet fare, the combination of this whimsical-print dress with black platform boots is just right.

Her Charlotte Olympia label has graced the feet of shoe addicts since 2008 with all things whimsical – think coveted Kitty flats, ice cream cone heels, and sky-high gold platforms. After raiding her enviable shoe closet, The Coveteur dove into Charlotte’s newly launched Leading Lady handbag collection. Named after Old Hollywood icons like Dean, Bogart, Gable, and Astaire, the bags are geared toward the 9-to-5 set in sleek yet functional leather silhouettes.

Although the new totes and boxy top-handle bags are perfect for the office, Charlotte’s offbeat shoes are more my style. Hint, hint, Santa.
