My dad is Paul Weller and yes, I'm a fella... despite the lashings of lipgloss

Paul Weller might be known as the Modfather, but his son has found a style all of his own.

The singer's eldest child, 20-year-old Natt Weller, showed off a distinctly androgynous look at London's Bungalow 8 nightclub, with straightened hair and lashings of lip gloss.

He has inherited his exotic looks from his 47-year-old mother, Dee C Lee, a former backing singer with the Style Council. But Natt - full name Nathaniel - also shares his 50-year-old father's love of music.

He is forging a career as a glam rocker and recently described himself as 'a mix between Victoria Beckham and Marilyn Manson'.

Natt, who says he has worn make-up since the age of 15, makes a point of accentuating his feminine features.

He once admitted: 'I had laser hair removal on my face - I never want a beard - and that hurt much more than a tattoo.'

Natt has acknowledged that his glamorous appearance inevitably leads to questions over his sexuality.

But he said last year: 'Of course I'm not gay. I don't have a girlfriend, but I get a lot of boy and girl attention.

'I don't mind. Real men wear make-up.'

He added that his father is unfazed by his appearance.

'The only time my dad said anything was when I shaved my eyebrows off and started drawing them on. He didn't get it.'
