V125 Next Gen: Lila Moss
“Last summer, I went parasailing with my mum. This summer, I’m raising awareness on the climate crisis [by] supporting environmental causes like extinction rebellion.” -Lila Moss
A new generation of supermodels is here. They are taking over the world’s runways, serving looks on magazine covers, and becoming industry muses. These models are present both physically and digitally in today’s world. With summer just around the corner, they prepare for some well-deserved rest and relaxation—even in the face of COVID-19.
As she continues her 2-year reign as the face of Marc Jacobs Beauty, today we are celebrating Lila Moss as the next cover star for V125. The fresh-faced beauty is lensed by photographers Inez and Vinoodh and styled by George Cortina. The Moss muse might ring a familiar bell, as she follows in supermodel and fashion footsteps. V spoke with the protegé and fashions rising star about the movies keeping her company during quarantine, self-motivation, and her hopes for this year.

LM At home relaxing in the garden with my family, and hopefully, I will be able to visit my grandparents by the English seaside.

LM Movies I’ve watched with my family are Fargo, Judy (about Judy Garland) and to calm my mind I watch David Attenborough. The next book on my reading list is Roland by Virginia Wolf.
