Lady Kitty Spencer walks the runway at D&G show at Milan Fashion Week

She is the niece of one of the world’s most famous style icons, but today Lady Kitty Spencer proved herself to be a style icon in her own right. 

The 27-year-old model, the niece of the late Princess Diana, was chosen to walk the runway for iconic Italian label D&G at Milan Fashion Week.

Kitty, who has acted as a muse for the Italian design duo, was an obvious choice to showcase the new collection of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. 

Princess Diana’s niece Lady Kitty Spencer put on a colourful display as she walked the D&G runway at Milan Fashion Week on Sunday 

The model took to the runway in an eye-catching silk printed dress in bright primary colours displaying a religious icon.

Despite the statement garment in true D&G style Kitty was laden with colourful accessories including sandals and a handbag adorned with pompoms and a pair of tasseled earrings.

Her famous blonde locks were swept up into a low chignon and fastened with oversize hair pieces and her look was finished with a strong red lip. 

D&G as a brand has been open in recent years in its quest to have a more inclusive catwalk than others, so frequently turn their back on the recycled models of fashion week in favour of ‘real women’.

Kitty boasts 440,000 followers on Instagram, where she posts endless photos showcasing her glamorous modelling career and glitzy social life.

The socialite grew up in South Africa, reading psychology, politics and English at the University of Cape Town.

And she could be set to make up to £2million a year if she continues to secure lucrative contracts with fashion brands, a branding expert recently revealed.

She is on warm terms with William and Harry, and is an ambassador for homelessness charity Centrepoint (of which William is patron), but is not in their inner circle.
