Kate Moss’ daughter Lila Grace looked the image of her model mum as she made her runway debut at the age of 18.

As a descendant of fashion royalty, Lila looked right at home on the catwalk as she strutted her stuff for Italian fashion house Miu Miu.

Dressed in a shimmering pink beaded crop-top and thigh-skimming mini skirt, Lila looked the image of confidence as she sashayed in front of a star-studded audience in her heeled sandals.

All eyes were on Lila as other models, including Alexa Chung and Suki Waterhouse, and industry experts watched the show virtually from home given the new social distancing rules.

Lila’s first turn on the catwalk comes almost thirty years after her model mum Kate was asked to model for the Italian designer back in 1995.

A teenage Kate, now 46, oozed confidence and cool as she tottered down the runway with towering heels and an unbuttoned mac that flashed her floral and nude bikini underneath.

Croydon native Kate, was well in her stride when she got the call from Miu Miu, having walked in her first show for Dolce and Gabbana in 1992.

Kate’s career flourished after she was first spotted by a fashion scout at the age of 14 when she headed through JFK Airport in New York.

She made the move from model and muse, to It girl, to household name and is one of the most successful models Britain has ever produced.

Another friend described Lila, who is the spitting image of her mum, as “terribly confident” and “able to network with people of all ages”.

They added: “She seemed very sensible and grown up.”

The teenager is the principal client at Kate’s modelling company, Kate Moss Agency, based in London’s Soho, which also has pop singer Rita Ora and Game Of Thrones actress Gwendoline Christie on its books.

Speaking at the launch, Lila credited her mum for providing the inspiration to achieving her dreams.

At the time she paid tribute to her mother for helping introduce her to the world of fashion and beauty.

“I remember when I was two, my mum and I were staying in New York. She was getting ready to go out and I saw this super sparkly, deep black eye shadow on her dressing table.
