Heather Locklear and Richie Sambora’s 12-year-old daughter, Ava Sambora, made her runway debut over the weekend in the White Trash Beautiful show, which kicked off LA Fashion Week in Los Angeles.
Ava might still be just shy of her teen years, but she strutted down the runway modeling designs by her father and designer Nikki Lund looking well beyond her age.
“I’m very, very proud of her. I’m very excited, and I’m here to support her,” Heather told People. “And the minute she’s done I’m going to grab her and wipe off her makeup and get her into her PJs.”
Ava strutted down the runway to dad’s “Livin’ on a Prayer,” modeling a leather strapless mini with Bon Jovi-inspired accessories.
It appears that Ava has inherited her parents’ rock/starlet genes.
“No, she’s a diva! She’s ready to rock it, she’s amazing!” designer Nikki told the mag when asked if Richie was nervous for his daughter’s debut. “He’s so excited about this, it’s his baby!”
Richie was unable to attend the show, due to scheduling conflicts, but his design partner sent him photos from her phone throughout the night.
