Tali Lennox is ready to face the world again, three months after the shock death of her boyfriend Ian Jones. The 22-year-old made her first public appearance on Tuesday evening since she and her long-term partner were involved in a kayaking accident that resulted in his tragic death in August.
The artist supported her mother Annie Lennox, who was hosting the 15th anniversary celebrations of charity mothers2mothers in London, and looked effortlessly chic in a metallic stripe jacket and culottes with her hair tied back into braids.

Tali Lennox made her first public outing since the death of boyfriend Ian Jones
Tali has been keeping a low profile in recent months as she comes to terms with the death of her partner of two years. The couple were kayaking in the Hudson River on 8 August when their boat was capsized and they were separated. While Tali was rescued by a passing boat 20 minutes later, it was three days before Ian's body was recovered from the river.
The former model has since paid tribute to her boyfriend on social media, describing him as her "soul mate and partner in crime and creativity" in a touching post. She continues to share touching tributes to Ian on Instagram, including a recent black and white photo of them together.
A moment on our shores, where the foliage was wild and the weather was dramatic, sunshine & storms. We liked to walk to the edge of the borders, explore the great unknown, push it to the limits 'warrior style' you'd say, Partners in Crime. We shared an observational language, Id often express a very random thought that most might find odd, yet you'd reply in amazement "I was just thinking the exact same thing!" We were fused. Once you were massaging my foot for a long time, before exclaiming in astonishment "wait! I thought that was my foot" some might say soul mates, but you felt like my twin. "Two drifters, off to see the world There's such a lot of world to see We're after that same rainbow's end" You see after all, love transcends death. But I do miss these moments washed away on our shores @ianjellyrolljones

It appears Tali's grief has also inspired her work, with the talented artist tagging Ian in a number of her new paintings including one entitled 'Beside you, elsewhere', which depicts the young couple united on what appears to be another planet.
