Kate Moss has recalled how she fled a photoshoot as a teenager after a man asked her to remove her bra.

In an interview for BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, the supermodel discussed how she found herself in an inappropriate situation when a man once asked to photograph her for a "bra catalogue".

"I was only 15 probably and he said, 'Take your top off,'" she remembered. "I took my top off, and I was really shy then about my body, and he said, 'Take your bra off,' and I could feel there was something wrong so I got my stuff and I ran away."

Kate went on to note how the experience taught her to trust her gut.

"I think it sharpened my instincts. I can tell a wrong 'un a mile away," the 48-year-old continued.

The British star founded the Kate Moss Agency in 2016 and always makes sure an agent is on set whenever one of her models is booked for a photoshoot.

She also gave similar advice to her 19-year-old daughter Lila Moss.

"I've said to her you don't have to do anything you don't want to do," she commented. "If you don't want to do this shoot, if you don't feel comfortable, if you don't want to model, don't do it."
