Kate Moss’s daughter, 18-year-old Leela Moss, is running the runway at Fashion Week. After opening the Richard Quinn show in London, he joined his mother at the Verses by Fendi show in Milan with a whole bunch of iconic super models. Walking for Fendi’s part of the “swap” event, she debuted a one-piece swimsuit with an explanation of Kim Jones ’Versace gold baroque pattern and signature protection pin. The look was complete with an ornate, logo-covered blazer, matching tote bag, metal shoes, purse and jewelry – and most importantly, Leela’s Omnipod Dash, a tubeless insulin delivery pump, on her left thigh.
Leela has type 1 diabetes, which usually occurs in adolescence and is a lifelong autoimmune disease. “I don’t think many people know I have diabetes. It’s not visible from the outside, so no one will know just by looking at you,” he explained. Kit.
