It's easy to see where Naomi Campbell's ageless appearance comes from - her mother Valerie Morris. Valerie joined her supermodel daughter to celebrate the launch of her book for Burberry in London on Monday night and eclipsed the fashion icon.

Valerie (64) turned heads in a black velvet dress, flanked by the former Victoria's Secret Angel (45) at the exclusive event at Thomas' at Burberry on Regent Street.

The book features an extensive portfolio of Naomi's body of work over her career, spanning decades, and is being sold for €1,500.

"I’ve been very candid. My life is an open book in many ways. I’m honest about who I am," she told Vogue. Naomi previously opened up about her troublesome relationship with her mother in her youth as Valerie placed her into others care when she was a child.

But they've long since buried the hatchet and as are tighter than ever these days.
