As Victoria Beckham launched her latest collection at New York's Fashion Week, it was daughter Harper who stole the show.

The four-year-old arrived at the fashion show with brothers Brooklyn (16), Romeo (13), Cruz (10) and dad David as they lent their support to their designer mum.

The stylish youngster displayed her new hairdo, long braids - the biggest hairstyle of the season - as well as a black cape, Chelsea boots and Ray-Ban sunglasses as she arrived at the event.

Later, as the little girl accompanied her family to the after-show at Balthazar Restaurant in Soho, Harper looked like Victoria's mini-me in a black Burberry silk-blend dress and Gucci buckle shoes.

At Sunday night's show - Victoria's ninth appearance at New York Fashion Week - the former Spice Girl rocked a casual look, swapping her heels for Adidas Stan Smith trainers, a chunky, ribbed, stone-coloured polo-neck jumper with leather elbow patches, grey schoolboy trousers and a sleek ponytail.

The family rushed to praise their mum on social media as the show ended.

"Congrats mum on another Amazing show," Brooklyn wrote on Instagram. "Love you."

David added, "So proud of another beautiful season ... ❤ @victoriabeckham."

The children, who were on mid-term break,  had given their mother “some beautiful flowers” for Valentine's Day and in return, she bought them balloons.

Victoria said: “We'd spent the whole day with these balloons for the kids and I got out of the car after we'd been working all night, and I said to the driver, ‘Be careful of the balloons!' and he got out the car and said what? And a bunch of them flew up into the air. I was like, no!"

Victoria's show is now one of the fixtures on the Big Apple's fashion schedule.

The eight-year-old label now employs 150 people at studios in London, an office in New York and a gargantuan three-floor store on Dover Street in London. In 2016 a store will open in Hong Kong.

The brand now is worth an estimated €45 million.

Highlights from Sunday night's catwalk included plaid coats, corsets as daywear and a pair of high-waisted gabardine pants which were worn with a knitted bustier, which Beckham stated was “exactly what she wanted to wear on the red carpet now”.
