We often are shocked by how much the children of celebrities take after their parents when it comes to their looks. There are also many who have gone on to follow in their parents’ footsteps by working in the entertainment industry. Some of these kids inherited their parents’ talent and became singers, rappers, and actors. But then there are those who opted to do modeling instead, some with the help of their parents’ contacts in fashion.
So which models are making money off of their celebrity parent-influenced genetics? Here are 15 models who you probably didn’t know also have celebrity parents.
1. Kendall Jenner
You might have already connected the dots between Kendall Jenner and her famous family. She is the daughter of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, and now she is walking in some of the most famous runway shows. This is something that even her older sisters have never accomplished. But this career path wasn’t an easy choice and was difficult at first.
“Two years ago, when I first started this,” she told Vogue. “I thought: This is going to be so embarrassing. No one is going to accept me, and it’s going to be a complete failure.” She also tried to distance her work from her personal life. “Marc [Jacobs] invited my whole family to that first show, and I was like, ‘I love you guys, but can you please just not come?’ I was trying so hard to be taken seriously, like, ‘Guys: This is not a joke or a stunt; this is what I want to do with my life.’ I had to prove that I could do it.”
2. Lily-Rose Depp
The young model is the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. Paradis was also a model and Lily is the spitting image of her, she was even part of a huge campaign for Chanel.
3. Kaia Gerber
Cindy Crawford was one of the few true supermodels when the term was first being used. So it makes sense that her daughter would try posing and modeling as well. Gerber’s father is former model Rande Gerber, but she looks so much more like her mother.
4. Sailor Brinkley Cook
The young blonde is the daughter of Christie Brinkley, the model, actress, and inspiration of Billy Joel’s “Uptown Girl.” Now she’s modeling, but she might be doing something else in the fashion industry since she’s also attending Parsons School of Design in New York City.
5. Brooklyn Beckham
The teenager has been the face of the Polish brand, Reserved and has also modeled for other brands. He also has two famous parents, Victoria and David Beckham.
6. Gigi Hadid and 7. Bella Hadid
The two sisters have been taking over the modeling industry, from the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show to appearing in Vogue. But you might not have known that their mother is Yolanda Hadid who was a model and star in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Their father is real estate developer Mohamed Hadid.
8. Hailey Baldwin
You might recognize her from Guess ads. Hailey Baldwin has also been photographed hanging out with other famous models and celebrities, including Justin Bieber. She is the daughter of Stephen and Kennya Baldwin.
9. Rafferty Law
The male model is another celebrity child. He’s the son of Sadie Frost and Jude Law. Perhaps acting will be in his future …
10. Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis
The model and musician is the son of Daniel Day-Lewis and Isabelle Adjani.
11. Dylan Brosnan
The model was featured in campaigns for Burberry and more. He also makes music. Dylan Brosnan gets his talents and looks from parents Pierce Brosnan and Keely Shaye Smith.
12. Patrick Schwarzenegger
Patrick Schwarzenegger has been modeling and acting on Scream Queens. You probably guessed his celebrity parents from his name, but he’s the son of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.
13. Devon Aoki
The model was fortunate enough to replace Naomi Campbell as the representative for Versace so she has done quite well in the modeling world. She has also been able to get some roles in films like 2 Fast 2 Furious and Sin City.
Her famous parents are Olympic wrestler Rocky Aoki and jewelry designer Pamela Hilburger.
14. Georgia May Jagger
The British model has modeled for Chanel, H&M, Miu Miu, Versace, Vivienne Westwood, and more. Her parents are Jerry Hall and Mick Jagger, who are definitely rock ‘n’ roll royalty. So it’s not surprising that she became the face of Rimmel cosmetics.
15. Liv Freundlich
The young model has been working with brands like J. Crew. She also dabbled in acting with two small roles when she was younger. Her famous parents are Julianne Moore and Bart Freundlich.
