Welcome to the FROW block, Kate Moss junior as our Fashion and Celebrity Director, Josh Newis-Smith gets all the FROW gossip at Topshop's show...
As Pet Shop Boy’s West End Girls blasted out at the Topshop show it seemed apt that the ultimate West End girl, Kate Moss, chaperoned her 14-year-old daughter, Lila Grace, to her first FROW on the third day of London Fashion Week.
Wearing her go-to usual monochrome ensemble, Kate escorted her daughter into a real 80’s flashback moment as Topshop’s see now-buy now collection basically looked like a ram raid of 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 let our Joshington Hosts into the secrets behind THAT 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!” Well it must be lovely to have the likes of Joe Jonas and Cameron Dallas on speed dial?
Mini Moss’ 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. Kate Jnr’s move into modelling 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 – totally worthy of the family mantelpiece!
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 FROWERS Olivia Palermo who remarked she has “never regretted any of her front row outfits,” and Jessie Ware who said she felt unnerved by fashion week having recently returned to the public eye after the birth of her first child, whilst catching up with Joshington Hosts pre-show.
Having designed an incredibly successful collaboration with Topshop for a number of years could Kate’s re-appearance on the FROW mark her move back into the high street giant’s stores? Either way I 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 modelling full time. Expect to see this face everywhere soon… watch this face. Literally.
