Megan Barton-Hansen says Kate Moss has saved reality stars from being seen as 'seedy'

Megan Barton-Hanson has high praise for Kate Moss after collaborating with her younger sister, Lottie, for a series of sizzling photos.

The 27-year-old Love Island star has formed a close bond with 23-year-old model sensation Lottie Moss after first meeting via Instagram.

The ladies have been having a wild time together stripping to lace underwear and posing topless for a series of sizzling new photos by kooky art photographer Aaron Bird.

And Megan has hinted that their sexy collaboration has naturally been compared to photographs of reality star Kim Kardashian and fashion icon Kate after the model from Croydon stunned fans last week by collaborating with the American sex tape star to be the face of her underwear company, Skims.

Speaking to The Sun on Sunday, Megan says that by associating herself with Kim, Kate has made reality stars ‘cool’.

She said: “I love the Kate and Kim collab — they look insane. We’ll be the younger version. Kim has made reality stars cool. We’re not seen as seedy and tacky.”

Kate raised eyebrows when she was uncovered as the face of Skims this month – with some surprised that she would model for a brand created by a reality star when she usually fronts campaigns for French and Italian fashion houses.

Meanwhile, Megan has offered her support to Kate’s sister Lottie after she received criticism for launching an account with OnlyFans.

The website is notorious for featuring x-rated material – which members of the public can subscribe to for a fee.

Defending her friend, Megan said: “People were giving Lottie stick and saying her modelling career is over.

“But actually she’s just a boss and taking control of her sexuality and body image and getting the whole profit rather than a brand taking her money.

“We look good together — we both have full lips, curvy, big, bouncy boobs and blonde hair. It was a good fit.”

Indeed, Lottie herself has hit out at her critics – saying her decision to strip off with friends and to sell the resulting photos online is ‘empowering’.

She said in an interview last month: “Everyone thinks modelling is really glamorous, but you get there and it’s these guys who are like 30 taking pictures of girls who are like 16 to 17 years old in their underwear. It’s creepy, it’s weird.

“Everyone thinks OnlyFans is the sex industry and that it’s creepy and weird and genuinely it’s so not, because it’s all girls, all my friends, taking my pictures and I’m taking their pictures.

“We’re so comfortable with each other, and you get better pictures because it’s us playing around.”

Reflecting on a shoot she enjoyed in a mansion, she added: “It’s amazing. It’s so glamorous walking around in a million-pound mansion in my heels. Liberated, yeah. I’m a very sexual person, so I love that.

“I love that I can just be sexual and free, and post what I wanna post. I take these pictures and my friends take these pictures for me, and that’s what I like more than modelling as well — the fact I get final approval over everything.”
