As Pet Shop Boy’s song "West End Girls" blasted out at the Topshop Unique show on Sunday, it seemed apt that the ultimate West End girl, Kate Moss, chaperoned her 14-year-old daughter, Lila Grace (above, left, with Stella Jones), to her first front row on the third day of London Fashion Week.
Wearing her go-to usual monochrome ensemble, Kate escorted her daughter into a real '80s flashback moment as Topshop’s see-now-buy-now collection basically looked like Cher’s ultimate tour wardrobe: diamante dames, barely there hems, and lashings of feathers and sheer punctuated the ultimate party girl’s evening wear.
The Mosses joined Charlie XCX, who opened up about her "Boys" music video: “It was literally a case of me ringing up and hounding all the boys to get involved until they succumb to me!” she said. Well, it must be lovely to have the likes of Joe Jonas and Cameron Dallas on speed dial, right?
Lila Grace's appearance on the Topshop front row comes after the teenager landed her first campaign this year for The Braid Bar with a rather psychedelic-do going down (below). Her move into modeling is certainly gathering some pace having covered Italian Vogue alongside her mother in March in a black-and-white shoot, shot by the legendary photographer Mario Sorrenti.
Lila Grace’s father, Jefferson Hack, has recently gone on record suggesting their daughter finds them both “deeply uncool,” but the teenager didn’t seem to care as she took her front row seat.
Lila took her place alongside the likes of seasoned showgoers like Olivia Palermo, who remarked she has “never regretted any of her front row outfits."
Could Kate’s re-appearance on the front row mark a new project with Topshop? After all, she did design a successful collaboration with the brand for years. Either way, we expect it will only be a matter of time until Kate’s daughter joins the likes of Kaia Gerber by following her mother’s footsteps into modeling full time. Expect to see her everyone, ASAP.
