The half-sister of supermodel Kate Moss, Lottie, has made her runway debut at Paris Fashion Week. The 17-year-old showed she is following in her sister's model footsteps as she graced the catwalk for Sonia Rykiel on Monday night.

Wearing a black velvet floral printed playsuit with ankle boots, Lottie looked at ease during her very first runway experience. The student let her natural beauty shine through with just a slick of eyeliner and her long blonde hair worn down and swept across her face.

Lottie was in good company for the autumn/winter 2015 show – she joined an impressive line-up which included up-and-coming models Gigi Hadid and Ella Richards. The faces of Sonia Rykiel's current campaign, Georgia May Jagger and her older sister Elizabeth, also walked the runway at the label's Parisian boutique.

The blonde beauty has seen her modelling career go from strength to strength after being signed by Storm Models – the agency who discovered Kate – on her 16th birthday. She has since featured in i-D and Teen Vogue magazines, as well as starring in a Red Valentino campaign for autumn/winter 2014.

Lottie Moss was first spotted at her sister Kate Moss' wedding in 2011

Lottie's model potential was first recognised when she was a bridesmaid at Kate's wedding to rocker Jamie Hince in 2011. However, being just 13 years old at the time, she was too young to be signed to an agency, so settled with test shots at Storm instead.

Describing her desire to break into modelling, Lottie revealed that her older sibling had played an influential role.

"Well, it kind of runs in the family," she explained. "Kate was a massive part of why I started."

She appears to share her half-sister's love of fashion, too. "My dream would be to have all [Christian Louboutin] shoes," she admitted. "But I can't afford any because I don't have a job, and I can't make my parents pay for that."
