Kate Moss and Daughter Lila Make Jaws Drop as They Walk Their First Runway Together

A dynamic duo indeed!

There’s no denying Kate Moss is a force to be reckoned with on the catwalk—she’s reached legendary status for a reason. However, it looks like she just met her match because she and her 18-year-old daughter Lila Moss stole the show at the Fendi presentation during Haute Couture Fashion Week in Paris.

The mother-daughter duo traipsed down the runway together wearing one-of-a-kind designs on Wednesday, Jan. 27.

For her lewk, Kate donned was a metallic teal gown, which featured jewel embellishments and delicate draping that created a rose in the center. The ethereal creation complemented the vibe of her beauty, in which she wore barely-there makeup and rocked a wet hairstyle.

Woman in arranged marriage reflects on colorism, misogyny in ‘Indian Matchmaking’

“I actually found the show to be something that really did resonate with my experience,” Tulshyan, 33, said. “Unfortunately, it reinforces some of the very negative parts of India today. I was disappointed, of course, there’s colorism, there’s casteism, there’s a lot of emphasis on traditional beauty.”

“Indian Matchmaking” centers around Sima Taparia, a professional matchmaker from Mumbai, who travels the world helping young Indian singles

Video reporting by Jacquie Cosgrove

When India Marshall woke up from a skull operation last month, she noticed something odd as she removed her bandages: her hair was braided differently than it had been pre-surgery.

Her Twitter post about the revelation, which noted, “I almost cried,” went viral, bringing more than 586,000 likes and prompting a powerful discussion about the need for more Black doctors.
