Amanda Holden and daughter Lexi match in cut-out dresses at fashion show

Amanda Holden and her 17-year-old daughter Lexi Hughes were among many stars to attend Welsh designer Julien Macdonald’s first London Fashion Week show in three years.

The pair nabbed front row seats as the Next Top Model star’s collaborative range with Mexican designer Gabriela Gonzalez strutted down the catwalk.

The 52-year-old actor sported a skimpy black dress with a mesh bodice, while her daughter looked super glam in a flapper girl style minidress, which boasted some excellent tassels.

As the two blondes held hands and posed for photos, they looked the spitting image of one another – although fabulous and ageless Amanda hardly looked old enough to be the teen’s mother.

While the Baftas were in full swing over at Southbank, all the other celebs in town seemed to venture to the ornate Freemasons’ Hall in central London.

It was an ideal backdrop for the occasion, which oozed glitz and glamour.

The Julien X Gabriela AW23 show opened with British model Leonie Anderson striding into view in a black sequined bodysuit to Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ hit Unholy.

Other supermodels working the room included Winnie Harlow and Cindy Bruna, while Gemma Collins, Strictly Come Dancing’s Bruno Tonioli and Made In Chelsea’s Sophie Hermann turned up to watch. 

Despacito singer Luis Fonsi, Strictly’s Aljaž Škorjanec and Janette Manrara, and presenter Ashley Roberts also attended the high-fashion event.

Gothic glamour was a clear theme of the show, which included bodycon silhouettes, bejewelled minidresses, metallic gowns, mesh catsuits and an incredible amount of sequins.

One of the most notable looks was the smattering of draped minidresses, which were a throwback to the silver one the designer famously created for Paris Hilton’s 21st birthday party.

The bash would have been of great interest to Lexi, who is currently dabbling in modelling herself.

In December, Amanda told The Sun’s Fabulous Magazine: ‘At the moment, Lexi’s learning her craft — how to pose, how to walk. And then we will release her into the modelling world.’

Although caveating the excitement by saying Lexi will still be putting her education first ‘because she is clever as well’, the mum-of-two continued: ‘She’s super-excited and has the right mentality — she’s very unfazed by things, is not easily impressed, and doesn’t suffer fools.

‘All of those qualities Chris and I have, so she’s been brought up like that. She’ll be looked after because she can look after herself pretty well. And she’s got a tiger mummy and a daddy as well.’

Lexi, short for Alexa, is the eldest child of the Wild At Heart star and her music producer husband Chris Hughes, who also share another daughter called Hollie, who is 11.
