It must be difficult looking like one of the world's most famous supermodels, but one woman has opened up about the pros and cons of looking like Kate Moss.

Denise Ohnona, 38, from Ormskirk, Lancashire, looking like the iconic model changed her life, but it does come with its drawbacks.

Denise said that she had gained weight, stopped feeling fashionable and had a 'boring' life after having a baby and going through a divorce.

Denise gets mistaken for Kate Moss all the time.

However, after being stopped in the street to be told she looked like Kate Moss, the mum-of-two got a new wardrobe and lost weight to start playing up to her lookalike.

A year later, and Denise explains that she regularly gets chased by paparazzi and mobbed for photos in clubs and supermarkets.


Denise, a full-time mum, said: "When I first started to get papped, I used to get very shy and felt like a fraud because I am a Fake Moss.

"But then as time went on I started to enjoy it and now find it very flattering - who wouldn't want to get mistaken for Kate Moss? She's one of the most incredibly iconic women ever.

"I get mistaken for her on a daily basis now - especially when I am out in central London - that's where the paps tend to find me.

"It's amazing that I've been able to find something that has transformed me from my frumpy mum lifestyle, to a glamorous 'supermodel'."


Denise said her divorce left her with no confidence, but she says her transformation has left her feeling like the model.

She said: "When I split up with my ex-husband eight years ago, I went a bit 'mumsy,' I lost my sense of fashion and gave up on the gym.

"I would look after the kids day and night and it was more important to run around after them than look after myself.

"Then I started getting people mistaking me for Kate Moss when I would go anywhere.

"Being told that I could look like Kate Moss picked me back up and I started focusing on myself again.

"I got back into the gym and looking after my appearance and the comments started all over again!"


Although it must be annoying at times, she says that usually she enjoys the attention.

She said: "The last time I visited a club in London there was a crowd lining up for photos with me - it was so much fun meeting so many great people.

"When people see me they get very excited, and when I tell them I am not really Kate Moss they love it anyway and still want selfies.

"I am super proud that I have finally got over my shyness and lack of confidence - and getting snapped by photographers and stopped by fans has helped this massively."
