It is the first time that one of Jackson's children has been spotted out in public without a veil.
But in keeping with Jackson's love of the eccentric, Paris - full name Paris Michael Katherine Jackson - was dressed almost identically to her famous father.
Perhaps wisely, however, the youngster shunned the impracticability of heels, opting instead for far more comfortable flat-soled trainers.
Of course, Jackson is no stranger to women's clothes.
During a trip to Ireland earlier this year the singer, who has been staying with Bahrain's royal family since being acquitted, arrived at Cork airport under layers of effeminate scarves and drapes.
And in January he wore an abaya - traditional garb for Muslim women - in the Arab state of Bahrain where he has been based for the past 12 months.
But more embarrassingly, Jackson was reportedly found dressed as a woman, applying makeup in the ladies' toilet, during a recent shopping trip.
