Blond hair stuck behind the ears, rebellious look and fleshy mouth, one could have thought of an appearance of The Twig Tuesday, at the prestigious Burlington House. No doubt, Lila Moss is the daughter of the English supermodel. The 20-year-old posed in front of the cameras with her childhood friend Stella Jones, before visiting the Summer Exhibition, an annual and summer exhibition of the Royal Academy of Arts in London. And if she looks more like her mother than ever, the dress she wore has only accentuated their similarities. Lila Moss had indeed opted for a long black dress with suspenders. This type of dress is called slipdress in English, literally "dress to put on", since it is enough to slip into it.

The young woman is often seen with this type of dress, from London to Ibiza, and even on the catwalk. In March 2023, she caused a sensation during Paris Fashion Week, when she walked in white slipdress for Chloé's fall-winter 2023-2024 show. And if, with a summer that promises to be hot, these dresses are now back on the front of the stage, Kate Moss has been the specialist since the 1990s.
A life in slipdress

The English supermodel never got tired of these dresses with thin straps, falling to the floor and revealing the shoulders. And this has been the case for more than thirty years. In 1993, at the age of 19, Kate Moss appeared at a party at her agency, Elite Models Management, in a Liza Bruce dress. Transparent, it reveals, under the flashes, the black thong of the young woman and her quasi-nudity. The image will go around the world, and unleash the crowds. Over the years that followed, Kate Moss would never give up the type of dress. At the Met Gala this year, she again wore a slipdress in satin and white lace, alongside her daughter Lila Moss, who does not fail to take over.
