A flame-haired 16-year-old with cupid bow lips is taking the fashion world by storm.

Doe-eyed London schoolgirl Lily Cole, who strutted her stuff for Julien Macdonald on the catwalk on Wednesday, is tipped as the new Kate Moss.

After just nine months in the business, the 5ft 10in stunner, who bears a striking resemblance to silver screen legend Clara Bow, has already appeared in Vogue, become the face of Anna Sui cosmetics and starred in campaigns for Moschino and Hermes.

"She looks like a Botticelli's Venus," said fashionista Isabella Blow. "I think she'll really explode out of her shell and turn into something huge." British designer Jasper Conran concurred, predicting teen Lily is going to be "very, very, very big".

"Lily has a completely different look to anyone else modelling at the moment," says a spokesperson for her agency, Storm Model Management, the same firm which signed a teenage Kate Moss. "She is a really exciting, original beauty… and she has that 'X' factor to go the extra mile."
