It is clear mother and daughter are very close. In December, they sat down together for an interview with the Daily Mail, and spoke about their very different styles. Lyla even admitted she doesn’t always approve of her mum's fashion choices.

"I hate that grey jumper you have – the grey poloneck from Zara that you always wear," she told her mum. "It just looks weird."

Nevertheless, Trinny's wardrobe is a treasure trove for the teen, who frequently borrows items from her mum.

"Yes," Trinny conceded. "I just feel it's an expensive item and I'd not want you to lose it. Also I'm a lot taller than Lyla, so my maxi dressed are too long for her." "I'll get them taken up!" Lyla retorted with a smile.

Asked whether she is interested in designer clothes, the teen noted: "They look really cool, but there's no way I could ever afford them. They're so expensive, it's a joke. You can literally buy a car for the price of some things." She revealed that instead prefers to wear sportswear. "It's comfy. Comfort is key," she noted.

"I love that she's doing this chilled, casual, comfy thing," Trinny added. "It's not about obsessive body image, or about showing off. I think it's really refreshing."
