Holding up the sentimental polaroid, Lila said: ‘I think this was on my mother’s 30th birthday, I could be wrong but I look quite young and she looks ready to go out. I think it’s really cute’

The blonde beauty went on to show their close bond by saying: ‘If I could fit one person in my bag it would probably be my mum, she’s fun and good at advice so I could ask her anything’ 

Lila – who has type one diabetic – also revealed she carries sugar tablets and a device to control her blood sugar levels.

While starring on Vogue’s YouTube channel, she pulled out many items including ones to support her condition.  

She said: ‘I have some sugar tablets, in case my blood sugar goes low’ 

‘I’m diabetic so I have this which controls a pod on my leg, which gives me insulin. This is very important to keep in my bag, it comes with me everywhere’

The star – worried her essential device could get lost – added: ‘I even have an apple air-tag to follow it around with my phone’

Lila has previously been praised for her ground-breaking decision to wear her insulin pump on the runway. 

Speaking about her condition, she told The Kit: “I think not many people know that I have diabetes. It’s not visible from the outside, so no one would really know just by looking at you.”

Lila has taken the next step on a path well trodden by her supermodel mother by landing her first ever cover shoot for global fashion bible Vogue.

The young model was in familiar territory during the shoot, with Steven MeIsel a regular collaborator with Kate, who has herself covered Vogue on 43 occasions. 

Speaking about growing up in the spotlight, Lila confessed that she was shocked by the attention surrounding her mother, admitting that she was surprised her friends even knew who she was.

She explained: ‘I went to secondary school and everyone was like, “Oh, your mum’s Kate Moss!” You don’t really have a filter when you’re that young and I was like, ”How do you know who she is? She’s old! She’s old and boring!”‘

Adding more about her relationship with her mother, Lila told the fashion bible: ‘I was quite protective over my mum. 

‘All my mum’s friends say that I was so scary as a child. I was quite serious. But also, I would always copy her. She would always have her head down and not look at the camera, so I’d always put my head down and not look at the camera. I still do it.’

Yet Lila revealed that with time she’s come to realise just how influential her mother is in the fashion world, saying: ‘In the last three or four years, I’ve realised that her style is actually really cool. I’m having to admit it now.’

The teenager went on to note that while she steals Kate’s Saint Laurent coats and her Chanel 2.55 bags, her supermodel mother often swipes her Adidas tracksuits.

Lila explained: ‘She doesn’t have a good trackies selection. She only has pyjamas. She probably would hate me saying that. She doesn’t want anyone to know she wears trackies!’ 

Lila nabbed her first modelling gig at the age of 15 – nabbing a campaign for Marc Jacobs Beauty – at just a year older than her mother was when she entered the business.  

Yet despite her mother being one of the famous models in the business, Lila revealed that Kate was keen to deter her from following in her footsteps. 

‘My mum always put me off [modelling],’ Lila said. ‘She was always like, “If you wanna do it, you can, but I wouldn’t recommend it.”‘

Despite her mother’s apprehension, Lila insisted that she doesn’t feel anxious at the thought that modelling success could bring the fame from which her parents tried to protect her.

She mused: ‘Not really. I’ve seen it first-hand, so I’m much more able to cope with it. I’ve had to say no to people. But I’m always nice!’

Lila’s father is journalist Jefferson Hack, with whom Kate was in a relationship in the early Noughties.

Jefferson and Kate – who dated from 2001 to 2004 with Lila being born in 2002 – have an amicable relationship and would ensure their daughter spent a regular amount of time with each of them in her childhood.
