Jude Law's son Rafferty made a splash as he modelled a new collection by DKNY in London on Sunday (June 15).

Stars including Jessie J, Lindsay Lohan and Pixie Lott looked on as the teenager cut an impressive figure on the runway in outfits from the new DKNY MEN and Esquire collection on Sunday.

French Elle reports that Jude bagged himself a front-row seat to support his son's budding career from the audience. The actor is no stranger to the fashion world himself, having been the face of Dior men's fragrance Dior Homme Sport since 2008.

The London show marked the official UK début of the Spring-Summer 2015 line, and Rafferty was seen sporting a casual (but assuredly pricey) baseball-inspired short-sleeved shirt from the collection.

Throughout the show he managed to maintain an impressive professional pout. But later that evening, he appeared to be all smiles as he was pictured hobnobbing with Radio 1 DJ Nick Grimshaw at the afterparty for the show.

It's hard to imagine our erstwhile blue-eyed hearthrob Jude having a son old enough to embark on a modelling career, but 17-year-old Rafferty is already establishing a name for himself in the fashion world.

Last year, the teenager was signed up to star in an advert for Scadinavian menswear label Tiger of Sweden. Since then, he has landed a string of modelling gigs, as well as a spread in Vogue UK with longstanding family friend Pixie Geldof.

Rafferty, known to friends as Rafi, is the actor's oldest child, born in 1996 to Jude's then-fiancée Sadie Frost. The pair married the following year, but divorced in 2003. Rafferty has a sister, Iris, 13, and a younger brother, Rudy, 11.

As far as we're concerned, the family resemblance is downright spooky - with his blue eyes, sultry gaze and prominent pout, young Rafferty is the spitting image of Jude back in his Talented Mr Ripley days.
