WALKING IN MOM AND DAD’S HIGH-PROFILE SHOES
LIKE PARENT, LIKE CHILD
History repeats itself with children following in the footsteps of their famous A-list parents. Recently, a flurry of cool teenagers with high-powered last names is finding their calling with a variety of fashion-related gigs, proving they have what it takes. After all, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Take Brooklyn Beckham, for example, whose fledgling modelling career was boosted by an appearance in the Wake Up video of British boy band The Vamps. Besides his good looks and one million Instagram followers, the 16-year-old son of Victoria and David Beckham, performed some impressive stunt work and parkour tricks.
Actors Dylan and Hopper Penn, instead, front the Fay (Tod’s Group) advertising campaign for spring/Summer 2016. The undertaking marks the first time the offspring of Sean Penn and Robin Wright have worked together. They were photographed in Palm Springs by Michelangelo di Battista.
Lourdes Leon, Madonna’s daughter, was tapped by Stella McCartney to appear as one of four models in the ad campaign for the designer’s new fragrance called Pop. Leon shares the set with Amandla Stenberg, the actress, comic book writer and activist; singer Claire Boucher, aka as Grimes, and Kenya Kinski-Jones, daughter of Quincy Jones and Nastassja Kinski. McCartney chose the girls based on their strong character, influence and personality. The images were shot by Glen Luchford as a road trip in the American desert with the girls carefreely prancing around.
The striking case of resemblance between Kaia Gerber and former supermodel Cindy Crawford led to the mother-and-daughter cover of Vogue France shot by Mario Testino. Their matching black leather jackets and hoop earrings further enhances the likeness. The 14-year-old Gerber has quickly scaled the modelling ranks appearing as the face of Alexander Wang’s campaigns and in Carine Roitfeld’s book CR Fashion Book.
Ditto for the sweet-faced Lily-Rose Depp, the 16-year-old daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, whose similitude with her mother is impressive. Her fast-moving career includes walking in the Chanel couture show as the brand’s ambassador, starring in a music video and a working on her fledgling acting career as she will play Isadora Duncan in the upcoming movie The Dancer directed by Stephanie Di Guosto.
Dylan Jagger Lee, son of Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, instead, is the new face of the Saint Laurent men’s campaign. The handsome 18-year-old poses shirtless in the moody ad campaign, shot in Malibu.
