Camber shoot made me famous says top model Kate Moss


Kate Moss has spoken of how a reluctant topless photo-shoot on the beach at Camber Sands helped to make her famous.

Speaking in a new book she described the iconic shoot that put her in Face magazine.

“She said: “They were like, ‘If you don’t do it, we’re not going to book you again.’ So I’d lock myself in the toilet and cry and then come out and do it.

“That picture of me running down the beach made the hairdresser – the only man on the shoot – turn his back.

“I see a 16-year-old now and to ask her to take her clothes off would feel really weird.”

Maureen Callahan’s book Champagne Supernovas tells the story of 1990s fashion and a trio of the big names from the period.

Camber sands is no stranger to film-shoots. Scenes from the Hollywood war movie Monuments Men, starring George Clooney.

Other movies to use Camber Sands as a location have included the war film Dunkirk, shot in 1958 and starring John Mills and Richard Attenborough.

The beach doubled as a desert for Carry On Follow That Camel.
