From the Missoni crew passing the family style secrets down the line to the Delevingne’s and their seemingly hereditary modelling excellence, there’s a whole heap of familial ties holding the fashion world together. Don’t believe us? Just check out this lot…
Babealicious Gigi is currently taking the fashion world by storm with her intoxicating mix of flowing locks, flawless skin and general fit-ness. A Baby Guess campaign, at just two years old, was to lead to catwalk stints at New York Fashion Week, music video appearances and a particularly saucy Tom Ford campaign. Younger sis Bella looks set to follow in Gigi’s footsteps on the modelling front, with a similarly muse-esque aesthetic. The fact their mother is the ever awesome Yolanda Foster from RHOBH probably doesn’t hurt, either.
Son of stye Queen Victoria and snappy sartorialist David, the future was pretty much set for Romeo to walk straight into a modelling gig- and that he did. For Burberry. Aged 10. Hmph.
Born in 1994 to everyone’s favourite alternative model, Lily McMenamy is racing through the motions to build upon her mother Kristen’s industry success. Standout features make for a striking look not too far removed from Mummy Dearest- Lily has already been snapped up by A.P.C. for their latest campaign and is a favourite of Dazed and i-D.
Half sister to the Boss they call Moss, re-launched Calvin Klein’s iconic collection and bears more than a passing resemblance to Kate. We predict big things for the latest offspring from this fashion family.
All hail Queen Kendall, fashion industry darling and half sister to Kim K. A contract with Wilhelmina models at age 14 lead to a campaign stint for Forever 21 and appearances in Paper, OK! and Teen Vogue magazines. But it was during season 6 of Keeping up with the Kardashians- when Kendall was encouraged to pursue a professional modelling career by photographer Nick Saglimbeni- that things really kicked off. Cue catwalk appearances for Marc Jacobs, Ricardo Tisci and King Karl, alongside countless editorial features, her own clothing line and whispers of high profile relationships. Everything a reality TV star could hope for.
Julia Restoin Roitfeld
Daughter of Carine, owner of a beautiful family life and a crazily enviable style. When your mother is the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, you’re pretty much ensured an A-list filled contact list- Julia counts Ricardo Tisci, Lara Stone and Helena Christensen as her BFFs. Check her out in past campaigns for Tom Ford and Roberto Cavalli.
Dree Hemingway and Langley Fox
Our favourite down to earth model who we reckon is genuinely a barrel of laughs, Dree is the great-granddaughter of Ernest Hemingway and attended the the Ernest Hemingway Elementary School in Idaho- natch. Her high profile fashion campaigns are too many to list, but our favourite Hemingway hook-up has to be her starring role in The Vaccines music video for “I Always Knew”. Sister Langley Fox is in on the act, too, and has walked the runway for Saint Laurent and is currently collaborating with Everlane.
Terminator’s son is taking a high profile spot in the latest batch of Tom Ford campaigns, alongside Gigi Hadid. With a killer Blue Steel and heartbreaker good looks, we have a feeling he’ll be back (soz) in our fashion stratosphere sharpish.
Georgia May Jagger
Take a dose of Mick Jagger’s swag mixed with the unmistakable attitude of Jerry Hall and you quickly realise you have yourself an unstoppable fashion force. Georgia May has quickly carved out a very definite path for herself as the gap toothed poster child for a generation, transcending “MOTM” status to become a true icon.
