30 JUNE 2008

Elizabeth Hurley's family brought a touch of Indian culture to a quintessentially English summer occasion at the weekend. On hand to open a village fete near her 400-acre estate in the Gloucestershire countryside, the model was joined by Mumbai-raised husband Arun Nayar and her son Damian - who stole the show in a salwar kameez.

When Elizabeth wed Arun in a colourful Hindu ceremony last year, her husband revealed how determined she was to embrace Indian culture.

And now it seems the businessman's Asian heritage has rubbed off onto stepson Damian - Elizabeth's child from a previous relationship with Hollywood producer Steve Bing. The six-year-old is frequently seen at events in traditional Indian dress, while his glamorous mum often opts to wear colourful saris.

While Damian embraced Indian culture at the fete, Oxford-educated Arun busied himself with the typically English activities on offer.
