She debuted in Paris in 2009. But her professional break came in 2015. She has moved back to the UK and is signed with Storm Model Management.

Kitty Spencer and what she says about her newfound fame
Kitty found the sudden incoming of attention and May last May unnerving. She said:
“It was definitely unexpected,”
Recalling that time, she said:
“[My Instagram followers] went from 17,000 to half a million in one night. I thought I had someone else’s phone when I woke up the next morning. I had to turn my notifications off because my phone was going to die.”
Her career has since picked up enormously since May 2018 and she has been all over the world. She said:
“I’ve spent only three nights in England since November,”
She says this modestly of her career:
“I keep thinking that this is potentially short term and a really exciting moment, so I’m trying to embrace it for what it is. And then when it does end, just being grateful because it was something I never imagined in the first place.”
Kitty Spencer and her personal life and relationships
Kitty is a very private person. She uses her social media only to promote her modeling work and uploads also some family and friends pictures. She does not want to reveal her relationship status now.
She was previously dating real estate tycoon Niccolò Barattieri di San Pietro, 48 for four years before they split in 2017. She was rumored to be in a relationship with Michael Lewis, 60 who is a retailer and owns Phase Eight, Whistles, and other clothing brands.
