Australian-born Maddison caught the eye in a patterned shirt and stylish cropped jeans as they ordered.
Brown is already an industry vet. She started her career as a model at 13. At 16, she moved from her native Sydney, Australia to New York City where she stayed in model apartments and AirBNBs by herself.
Unlike Liam's ex wife Miley Cyrus, she never strayed of course with the party scene and she says her superpower is her work ethic.
'I've lived overseas on my own so I haven't had the bond of the parents going away meaning a party,' she told i-d magazine in 2014. 'I remember the first time I went overseas on my own my agent said, now don't get into the partying. And I was just like, trust me it's not going to happen.'

After years of modeling with brands like Miu Miu, Calvin Klein, Jason Wu and Marchesa, she wanted to return to her childhood love of acting so she headed to LA for auditions.
That is when she landed a pivotal role on the Dynasty reboot in 2017.
The series shots in Atlanta part of the year, and while she spends much of her time in the US, she always loves being in Australia.
'Sydney will always be home,' she told Yahoo last month. 'It's hard to leave every time I leave. I don't want to.'
Brown has also been in the 2015 film Strangerland, where she played Nicole Kidman's onscreen daughter, and the 2016 Australian TV series, The Kettering Incident.
