Born into a fame legacy, these seven, awfully attractive children of celebrities earned stardom by default. And judging by how they’re shaping up, we’d say you’re definitely looking at the next generation of ‘It’ guys and girls
People say of the fashion industry that “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Nowhere is this statement more true than in the world of the celebrity offspring. Privileged from birth and with an enviable list of contacts courtesy of their parents, children of celebrities seem to be able to turn their hand to almost anything. The career du jour seems to be in the uber-competitive modeling industry, which has attracted many good-looking youngsters of well-known lineage. Recently Rafferty Law (son of Jude) has made his runway debut, and Vivienne Westwood’s granddaughter Cora Corre has been tipped as one of the next big faces. Here we take a look at our favourite famous relatives that are currently taking the modeling world by storm.
1. Lottie Moss
In terms of shoes to fill, there don’t come many bigger than Kate Moss’. Younger sister Lottie has recently made a big splash in the industry, scoring an editorial in Dazed & Confused and a campaign with Calvin Klein. Whether she can rise to her sister’s icon status remains to be seen, but the 16-year-old is definitely one to watch.
2. Lily McMenamy
As the daughter of one of fashion’s most striking supermodels, Lily McMenamy has inherited some seriously good genes. With impossibly big lips and her mother’s ethereal beauty, Lily has a face that demands attention. Already picked up by major brands and publications, she is one of the most exciting finds for the industry of late.
3. Brooklyn Beckham
With their really ridiculously good-looking parents, it would be hard to imagine the Beckham children would be anything but. While younger brother Romeo was the first to be snapped up by Burberry for their children’s campaign, this spot goes out to eldest child Brooklyn. Recently scoring a cover of Man About Town magazine, he seems set to be the dark horse of the family.
4. Riley Keough
The granddaughter of one of music’s most iconic stars, Elvis Presley, has been rocking the acting and modeling world for some time now. With brands from Lee Jeans to Miu Miu, as well as the biggest global publications taking notice, Riley Keough has a more than impressive resumé. Having also starred in films such as Magic Mike and The Runaways, Riley is the classic triple threat.
5. Dree Hemingway
With a surname as iconic as hers, Dree Hemingway was undoubtedly destined for great things. Choosing the runway over literature, Ernest Hemingway’s great granddaughter has made quite the impact. With campaigns from AGNONA to Paco Rabanne under her belt, and a score of editorial appearances, Dree’s career is still on the rise. Did we mention she is also a celebrated actress?
6. Patrick Schwarzenegger
One of the more unexpected faces on the scene of late has been Patrick Schwarzenegger (no prizes for guessing who his father is). Having inherited Arnie’s impressive height and chiseled good looks, Patrick has recently been chosen by Tom Ford to front his AW14 advertising campaign. But we’re guessing after that he’ll be back (couldn’t resist).
7. Tali Lennox
Last but no means least is Tali Lennox, daughter of the Eurythmics singer Annie Lennox. Having started her career at 17, by now she can count Burberry, Christopher Kane and Prada as her fans, among many others. Still only 21 and having achieved so much, it’s clear her career is set to skyrocket.
