See Paul Walker's Daughter Stun in a Cut-Out Dress at "Furious 9" Premiere
Paul Walker's daughter Meadow shined on the red carpet at the world premiere of F9: The Fast Saga.
The premiere of the newest Fast and Furious movie brought big stars to the TLC Chinese Theater in Hollywood on Friday, June 18. But one of the most special guests in attendance was Meadow Walker, the daughter of the franchise's late star Paul Walker, who died in 2013 in an automobile crash. He was filming the seventh Fast and Furious movie at the time and in the eight years since his death, his daughter has remained connected to the film series and its stars. Read on to see Meadow, now 22, at the premiere and to find out how she's keeping her father's memory alive.
Meadow Walker wore a Saint Laurent couture gown to the premiere of F9.
Meadow was the picture of chic at the world premiere of F9: The Fast Saga in Hollywood on June 18, sporting a crisp middle part blunt bob haircut and minimal make up. The model teased her look in an Instagram post before the event, captioning it: "let's go."
She tagged Tiffany & Co. for her diamond drop earrings and Saint Laurent and its legendary head designer, Anthony Vaccarello, for her gown. The black floor length dress featured a white bow and side cut outs, a detail Meadow's stylist proudly displayed on her Instagram.
Meadow's outfit wasn't the only show stopper at the premiere. The stars of F9, including Charlize Theron, Jordana Brewster, and Vin Diesel, all brought their style A-game to the red carpet event ahead of the movie's release on June 25.
Meadow devotes herself to her father's foundation.
Meadow posts about her father on Instagram often. She recently shared an adorable photo of her kissing her dad and blowing out candles on cupcakes with the caption: "miss you."
Another way she keeps her dad's memory alive is via charity work. Meadow is the co-founder and president of the Paul Waker Foundation, which is devoted to empowering future generations. The foundation provides grants and scholarships to students and researchers pursuing marine science careers to help protect the world's oceans and sea life.
Meadow is treated by the Fast and Furious cast as family.
Not only is Vin Diesel her godfather, who refers to himself as her uncle, but other stars of the franchise have also taken Meadow under their wing. Jordana Brewster, who plays Mia Toretto in the movies, posted a photo to her Instagram of her seven-year-old son Julian Brewster-Form with Meadow and Paul Walker's longtime friend Brandon Birtell, a founding member of the Paul Walker Foundation, at the F9 premiere.
Vin Diesel hinted that Meadow might even make a cameo in the Fast and Furious franchise.
In a recent sit-down interview with E!'s Daily Pop, Diesel was cagey about whether Meadow, who's modeling career is booming, would ever make an appearance in the widely popular franchise.
"I would not count anything out," he said, when asked whether Meadow might join the Toretto family on screen. "Let's just say nothing is ruled out."
Whether or not she becomes a Toretto, it's clear Meadow is forever connected to the Fast and Furious cast. She recently took to Instagram to share a sweet black-and-white photo with Diesel and his 13-year-old daughter, Hania Sinclair, captioning it "family" with a heart.
