Mona Johannesson (born September 18, 1986 in Huskvarna, Sweden) is a Swedish model.[2] In Sweden, she is considered to be one of the top models in the country.[3][4][5]

Johannesson was discovered at the age of 14 by an IMG Models scout while she was at a horse trials event in Gothenburg, Sweden. She modeled only part-time until she finished school. Once she finished her education, she moved to London. Her big break came when an editorial in Fjords magazine re-created some of model Kate Moss's most famous poses, and Johannesson was quickly dubbed "The Next Kate Moss", including by Vogue.[6] The nickname "Baby Kate" has stuck with her ever since.[7] By January 2005, she had already appeared in British Vogue, Pop, Italian Vanity Fair, and Italian Vogue.[8]

Johannesson has walked in numerous fashion shows including Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Nina Ricci, Miu Miu Burberry, amongst others. Her list of advertising campaigns includes Armani Exchange, Boucheron Jewelry, Bulgari, Burberry Blue, Cacharel, Costume National, Filippa K, Hogan, Hugo by Hugo Boss, H&M Divided, iBlues, J.Crew, Kurt Geiger, Les Printemps, Nina Ricci, Tse Cashmere, Ungaro Fuchsia, and Valentino RED.[9]
