Matthew McConaughey was nowhere near Paris on Monday morning, but those in attendance as Stella McCartney unveiled her latest womenswear collection in the French capital cold be forgiven for thinking otherwise.
With a shock of centre-parted hair, the Oscar-winning actor’s 14-year old son Levi bore a striking resemblance to his famous father while attending Paris Fashion Week.
The teenager was joined by younger sister Vida, 12, and their model mother Camila Alves as they arrived at Manège de l’Ecole Militaire ahead of the fall-winter 2023-24 presentation.
Missing on the day was 10-year old Livingston, the youngest of McConaughey’s three children with the Brazilian model – who he married in 2012.
Greeting photographers, Alves, 40, looked typically stunning in a sophisticated cream trouser suit consisting of an unstructured blazer with a distinct crop and high-slung pleated trousers.

She drew attention to her toned physique with a smart black crop top, while a wide-brimmed hat and striking snakeskin boots rounded off the ensemble.
The model was attending the McCartney show after her recent long haul flight from Austin, Texas to Frankfurt, Germany diverted to US capital Washington D.C. after severe turbulence left seven passengers injured.
Alves was on board Lufthansa Flight 469 that was flying 37,000 feet over Tennessee on Wednesday evening when the crew reported severe turbulence.
She later shared a brief video on her Instagram on Thursday afternoon, showing food and other items strewn about the aisle in the aftermath of the turbulence.
She also shared details of the flight – which she described as ‘chaos’ after the turbulence hit – while thanking those who helped her.
