She may be a successful reality star and have her own fashion boutique, but Billie Faiers has proved she still needs support from her mother at times.

The TOWIE star looked more than a little unsteady on her feet as she struggled to balance in a pair of towering platform heels.

But luckily, her glamorous mother Suzanne Wells was there to lend a hand as the duo arrived at pal Harry Derbidge's new boutique, Harry's World, in Brentwood, Essex, earlier today.

The 22-year-old bombshell teamed her gigantic orange stilettos with a
black biker jacket, patterned blouse and a pair of leather look
leggings, which bore more than a passing resemblance to the trousers her
mother was wearing.

Meanwhile, Suzanne completed her look with a bow-print blazer and a pair of slightly more sensible cork wedges.

The mother and daughter duo were lucky enough to be given a sneak peak at Harry's new store ahead of its official opening to the public tomorrow.

They were joined by fellow Faiers family member Sam and her TOWIE co-star boyfriend Joey Essex in support of their pal, who cut a pink ribbon to declare the boutique open.

Also joining the group was Harry's cousin Amy Childs, who showed off her slim figure in a cute printed playsuit, as well as former X Factor stars 2 Shoes and Dancing On Ice's Chico Slimani.

Prior to attending the grand opening, beautician Amy made sure to give her cousin one of her famous spray tans.

She tweeted: 'Just gave @MrHarryDerbidge an @MissAmyChilds spray tan! all in prep for his shops launch @harrysworld_ xxx'

Harry, who will sell jewellery, make-up, T-shirts and teeth whitening at his new boutique, is the latest in a long line of TOWIE stars past and present who have opened their own stores.

Sam and Billie run clothing emporium Minnie's together, while Lucy Mecklenburgh, Lydia Bright, Lauren Goodger and Amy Childs also have their own salons and boutiques.
