Kate Moss's artistic topless editorials have become some of the most iconic images in the fashion world. But, apparently, as a young model starting out in the industry, she wasn't always comfortable with them. In a recent interview on Megyn Kelly Today, Kelly asked Moss if she ever felt pressure to pose with no top on. Moss immediately answered, "There was pressure."
She continued, "I worked with a woman photographer called Corinne Day and she always liked me with no top on and I did not like it at all when I first started." Day was bthen-boyfriend for Moss's infamous 1993 Calvin Klein campaign, in which she posed naked with then boyfriend Mario Sorrenti. "And then I suppose — Mario was my boyfriend so I was kind of used to it but I was still always like, 'Can I just put some clothes on?'" she said. "But that was the job, so I kind of just did it."

These comments are particularly poignant in the wake of the reverberations in the modeling world from Hollywood's #MeToo movement. Last year, there were a number of sexual assault allegations made against some of the most high-powered photographers in the industry, which led to several new regulations put in place dictating how models should be treated backstage and during photo shoots.
Moss's advice for anyone who, like her, has felt pressured to pose without their clothes on? "They don't have to do it if they don't want to do it," she told Kelly, per the Daily Mail. "I wouldn't let my daughter [15-year-old Lila Grace Moss-Hack] do it—I look at her now and she's 15, and to think that I was going topless at her age is crazy."
However, that doesn't mean she isn't supportive of her daughter's career. "I will support her, obviously. I'll be her manager," she said. "Her momager?" Kelly asked. "Yes, I'll be her momager," Moss said. "If she wants to, I'll support her in anything she wants to do."
