When Kate Moss opened her own eponymous talent agency, it piqued industry interests. For one, she’s Kate Moss, but secondly we waited to see which star models would fill up her boards. Enter the first model to join her ranks, the surprising 17-year-old Elfie Reigate, the daughter of Moss’ longtime friend Rosemary Ferguson. We knew little about the curly-haired model with aristocratically eye-catching features who was being backed by the most famous model of all time. She made her debut in a Vogue Italia editorial by Mario Sorrenti with her mother and an Alexander McQueen S/S 17 runway exclusive, and since then Elfie has since appeared in British Vogue, Numéro and Self Service as well landing a Burberry Spring 2017 campaign and show exclusive. We still wanted to know more…

She’s a Londoner.
I’m a 17-year-old Londoner from Islington. I’m currently living near Oxford, and I travel to London on weekends to work and see my dad.

Elfie brings her A game.
At the moment I’m studying for my A levels–History, Spanish and English lit. I work modeling around school. I’m hoping to study history and politics at uni.

If modeling doesn’t work out, maybe Formula One?
I love crap TV. Towie, Eastenders, X Factor… The full shebang… When I’m not watching TV I’m driving. I passed (second time) a month ago and literally haven’t left my car. I’m waking up an hour early for school everyday because I’m so excited about the journey!

Confirmed. She’s a dog person.
I’ve also just got a new puppy–a black Staffy called Jet. V cute.

Baggy is better.
I’d say my style’s quite casual and comfortable, lazy even. I love baggy things.

Join the club…
I fell in love with Adwoa Aboah on one of my first editorial shoots. I’ve always been a massive fan of her work, so when I found out she was going to be on set I was really looking forward to meeting her. She is pretty amazing, I didn’t get a lot of time with her but she has become a real hero of mine. Love what she does with her social platform and ‘Gurls Talk’- what a cool person.
