"I thought it was beautiful because it really felt hopeful, a ray of light after all the darkness we felt. So, I thought this was a perfect outfit for it."

Harris wasn't short of compliments either, saying of Iman: "I tried to think of the most iconic woman in the world, and it really came as Iman."

Iman and Alexandra have a very close relationship. Lexi, as she is called by her mum, rarely speaks out about her family but on Mother's Day last year she revealed in a post that she hadn't been able to see her mum during the pandemic.

"Happy Mother's Day again, here's another with me holding a chikkken nugget. Everyone pls stay inside, I haven't seen my mom for 6 months because we live on opposite coasts and it is very difficult to leave NY right now but I'm a child and I miss her dearly so pls be part poopers this one time so it doesn't take 2 [expletive] years to see her again. Thank you!" she wrote alongside a childhood picture of them together.
