Amanda made the sweetest video for Lexi

Lexi, who occasionally makes an appearance on her on Amanda's social media, caused a stir with fans when she was caught stepping out with her mum at The Fashion Awards last month at the Royal Albert Hall - and she looked so grown up!

In the photo, the 17-year-old looked camera ready in a stunning sleeveless black dress that featured a corset top and stylish, feathered skirt. She wore her long blonde tresses up in a slick ponytail which perfectly suited the high-fashion ensemble.

The mother-daughter duo looked incredible at the event

Amanda also looked gorgeous and stood next to her daughter in a vibrant red floor-length gown, opting to wear her hair down and brushed back.
