Daddy-daughter date night!

Ewan McGregor‘s daughter stole the spotlight on Wednesday night when she accompanied her famous father to the premiere of his upcoming film Miles Ahead in New York City.

McGregor, 44, looked every bit the doting father as he and his eldest daughter Clara, 20, stuck close together and smiled for photographers as they walked down the carpet.

The actor paid homage to his Scottish roots for the night out, wearing a pair of red tartan pants and leather lace-up boots. The father of four completed his look with a back T-shirt and matching blazer.

Clara showed off her budding fashion sense, stepping out in a black silk romper with a sleek black blazer. The aspiring photographer kept her look natural, leaving her long blond hair down around her shoulders and wearing minimal makeup.

In Miles Ahead, McGregor plays a Rolling Stone reporter dragged into the life of the then-reclusive Davis in the ’70s.

“I’ve always liked Miles Davis,” McGregor told PEOPLE at the premiere. “But I sort of knew the more popular Miles Davis stuff, Kind of Blue and Sketches of Spain. I wasn’t that educated on some of the more complicated and avant-garde stuff, but I learned a lot by making the film and listened to a lot of his music.”

In the film, McGregor’s character chauffeurs around Davis (Don Cheadle) in a vintage Jaguar, and it turns out, old-school vehicles are a bit of a passion for the actor.

“I like old bikes and old cars,” said the actor who recently sold his Volkswagen Beetle on eBay. “There is no rhyme or reason to it. I have a very old car coming, a 1927 American car, a Buick sedan, so that is what has replaced [the Beetle].”

Miles Ahead hits theaters April 1.
