Her sister Fifi, 36, wore a light pink long-sleeved dress with a floral print and a deep v-neckline.

Meanwhile, Pixie, 28, wore a dark jacket with skinny jeans, adding height to her frame with a pair of £875 Gucci boots.

Tiger Lily was adopted by Live Aid founder Bob Geldof after his ex-wife Paula Yates died of a heroin overdose in 2000 when the child was four years old. 

A documentary about Tiger Lily’s father called Mystify: Michael Hutchence had its world premiere in April.

Filmmaker Richard Lowenstein confirmed that Tiger Lily had a mixed response to some of the footage during an interview on Australia’s Today show. 

‘Tiger Lily loved it but she did say, “I don’t think I ever want to see that again”, because it was so emotionally tumultuous,’ Lowenstein said. 

During a recent interview with A Current Affair, Lowenstein spoke about what it was like to meet Tiger lily while working on the documentary.

‘I couldn’t stop laughing. I’d be saying, “You have no idea, I used to be with your dad and he’d say exactly the same thing as you just said”, and she’d go, “Tell me,” and I’d tell her stories and she was very moved by them,’ he said.

Lowenstein said he gifted Tiger with one of Michael’s old jumpers and one of his acoustic guitars, which ‘really broke her up’.

Tiger Lily, whose full name is Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily Hutchence, has stayed out of the spotlight since the deaths of both her parents.

Michael died by suicide aged 37 in November 1997, and her mother Paula Yates overdosed on heroin in September 2000, aged 41.

It is believed he took his own life at the height of a bitter custody row over Ms Yates’ children with her husband Bob Geldof, who was given custody of Tiger Lily.
