Amber Le Bon says she has 'lots of fun' with her parents ahead of night at the museum

Amber Le Bon made an elegant hostess at a glitzy gala in London's Victoria & Albert museum on Wednesday.

Showing off the style – and the cheekbones – she's inherited from her model mother Yasmin, the 26-year-old posed with YouTube sensation Jim Chapman at The British Heart Foundation fundraiser.

Her mother and pop star father Simon weren't at the party, but Amber also a successful model, wouldn't have minded if they had been.

Ahead of the soiree, she told the Evening Standard: "I really like going out with my parents, they are parents but also like my friends and we have huge amounts of fun together."

"Parents always try to embarrass their children, in a friendly way, it's their prerogative, you just have to not let yourself be embarrassed, I find it funny," added Amber, who had picked out a pretty patterned maxi dress for the party.

In the interview her co-host Jim, who is now one of the country's most popular vloggers, admitted he is still getting used to being in the limelight.

The 27-year-old said: "Suddenly becoming popular and influential has completely changed my life. I come from fairly humble beginnings and now I have the best job in the world and get to experience some incredible things."

Lots at the auction included an Alexander McQueen skull clutch by the fashion house's chief designer Sarah Burton, a Chanel bag straight from Karl Lagerfield's runway, an Alice Temperley lace gown and a limited edition print by artist Peter Blake.

Also on offer were a couture dress once worn by Kylie Minogue, flowers for a year from celebrated florist Absolute Flowers and tickets to a private box at Wembley to see the England football team play.
