There's a new Moss in town.

Kate Moss's younger half-sister, Lottie (get used to that name!), is making her modeling debut in the April issue of Teen Vogue.

"It kind of runs in the family," the 16-year-old student explains to the magazine. "Kate was a massive part of why I started."

Lottie first turned heads at Kate's 2011 wedding, when the then 13-year-old stunned in her Stella McCartney bridesmaid dress.

But just because Lottie is related to arguably the most famous model in the world, doesn't mean the 5-foot-5 beauty gets an automatic pass into the fashion world.

Lottie had the looks and an agency — Kate's Storm Model Management — to represent her, but she needed parental permission before she made her foray into modeling.

Up until this year, Lottie denied all photo shoot and interview requests at her mom and dad's orders. They wisely insisted she focus on school. (Lottie lists history, English, and P.E. as her favorite subjects.)

"Teen Vogue is my first proper job!" exclaims Lottie.

Not a bad first gig, either. The pretty blonde was draped in designer clothes from Alexander McQueen, Chanel, and Topshop for the shoot.

"My dream would be to have all [Christian Louboutin] shoes, but I can't afford any because I don't have a job, and I can't make my parents pay for that," says the budding model.

Also on Lottie's "to do" list: work with Mario Testino, land a Vogue cover, and eventually segue into fashion journalism.

"I'd really like to work at Teen Vogue," she reveals, prompting her agent to interject, "You are obsessed with 'The Hills.'"

"I love 'The Hills,'" continues Lottie. "I find it so funny — Heidi and Spencer. I'm definitely a Lauren Conrad fan. Watching them all work and everything they did … It's just really fun and interesting."

As long as Lottie doesn't choose a boy over Paris, she would fit in at Teen Vogue just fine.
