Heather Locklear’s gorgeous 12-year-old daughter, Ava Elizabeth made her modeling debut in the White Trash Beautiful show, which kicked off L.A. Fashion Week. The line is the creation of her father (Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora) and designer Nikki Lund.
Heather proudly watched from the front row, while snapping photos on her iPhone. “I’m very, very proud of her. I’m very excited, and I’m here to support her, Heather told People magazine. “And the minute she’s done I’m going to grab her and wipe off her makeup and get her into her pjs.” Nikki Lund, who sat next to Heather during the show, understood Heather’s protective nature, “Heather is a good mother so she’s being a mother, you know. She’s being really, really good.”
Ava was natural and confident as she glided down the runaway to “Livin on a Prayer” in four different ensembles. Asked if Ava seemed nervous before the show, Nikki Lund said, “No, she’s a diva! She’s ready to rock it, she’s amazing!” Richie couldn’t make the show due to a last minute scheduling conflict, but Nikki Lund was sending him photos the whole time, explaining, “He’s so excited about this, it’s his baby!”
