The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree

If you’ve got one of the most famous supermodels ever for a mum, chances are you’re probably going to have some sort of a career in fashion.

We’ve got Kaia and Prestley Gerber, aka Cindy Crawford’s kids, Georgia May Jagger, whose mum is Jerry Hall, and let’s not forget Gigi and Bella Hadid, daughters of Yolander Foster.

So it’s no surprise that Kate Moss’ daughter Lila Grace has finally hit the modelling scene, at the ripe old age of 14.

The teenager, who Kate had with Jefferson Hack, is now fronting the campaign for Selfridge’s Braid Bar.

For the shot, Lila donned a branded sweatshirt, and had her hair braided with pastel extensions, a look we’re pretty sure will go down a storm with the teens. Heck, we’re even tempted.

The Braid Bar unveiled the ad on Instagram, dubbing Lila and her co-star Stella Jones ‘braid bae’.

Kate had previously said she was against her daughter going into modelling, admitting it wasn’t ‘the best industry really for young girls’, adding that it could be ‘very bitchy’, while Lila Grace only last year said she didn’t want to be a model, but perhaps a fashion designer.

In 2015 though, Kate signed her to her own modelling agency, all the better to advise her, and we can’t really think of a better mentor to have.

This is Lila Grace’s first campaign, and we can imagine it won’t be the last.

Penny Goldstone is the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire, covering everything from catwalk trends to royal fashion and the latest high street and Instagram must-haves.

Penny grew up in France and studied languages and law at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before moving to the UK for her MA in multimedia journalism at Bournemouth University. She moved to the UK permanently and has never looked back (though she does go back regularly to stock up on cheese and wine).

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at MoneySavingExpert.com, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
