Celebrity kids step into fashion as the industry’s newest icons

Feb 3, 2016

While younger brother Romeo already has a foot firmly in the fashion world, Brooklyn Beckham -- the oldest son of Victoria and David -- recently got his fist gig in this notoriously hard-to-break industry. But rather than flaunting his fame as the face of a brand, Brooklyn stepped behind the camera recently to shoot an upcoming campaign for the latest Burberry fragrance. The Beckham boys are just two more famous names to add to the ever-growing list of celebrity kids trying their luck in fashion. Here's a look at some of the most in-demand sons and daughters for catwalk shows, shoots and campaigns.

Dree Hemingway is another highly bookable name in the fashion world. Daughter of actress Mariel Hemingway, niece of actress and model Margaux Hemingway, and great-granddaughter of writer Ernest Hemingway, the young model has already walked the runway for Giles, Opening Ceremony and Chanel, and starred in campaigns for Chloé, Tiffany & Co., Tory Burch and David Yurman. She was the face of Paco Rabanne's "Lady Million" fragrance for several seasons.

Lou Doillon, the daughter of Jane Birkin and director Jacques Doillon, is also carving out a career as a model, working with Vanessa Bruno, 7 For All Mankind, H&M, Barneys, Chloé and Maje.

Ones to watch

Looking at the list of adolescents -- or even preadolescents in some cases -- who are currently up and coming in the fashion world, the industry can rest assured that catwalks will have plenty of fresh talent for the future. In 2015 alone, a whole pack of celebrity kids were seen gracing the front rows of fashion shows, and many have already signed with brands.

Brooklyn and Romeo Beckham are ones to watch in the upcoming generation of fashionista kids. Both have caught the attention of Burberry, with Brooklyn shooting a fragrance campaign and Romeo modelling for the brand. It looks like the pair have a bright future in the industry that's theirs for the taking.

But the Beckham brothers aren't the only famous kids whipping up a buzz. Lily-Rose Depp (daughter of Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp) has modelled on the Chanel catwalk and starred in a recent eyewear campaign, Kaia Gerber (daughter of Rande Gerber and Cindy Crawford) has worked with Versace, Iris Law (daughter of Sadie Frost and Jude Law) has starred in a campaign for Violetta Fancies You x Illustrated People, and Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis (son of Daniel Day-Lewis and Isabelle Adjani) has been spotted on the catwalk at Chanel Haute Couture and Dunhill.

Other celebrity offspring with a series of campaigns and catwalk shows in the bag include Dylan Penn (daughter of Sean Penn and Robin Wright) -- who starred in campaigns for Ermanno Scervino and Fay, and regularly appears in magazine shoots -- plus Zoe Kravitz (daughter of Lisa Bonet and Lenny Kravitz), who modelled for Calvin Klein, Balenciaga, Coach and Eleven Paris.

The Baldwin family is working its way into fashion too, with Ireland (daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin) and Hailey (daughter of Kennya Baldwin and Stephen Baldwin) both notching up contracts. Ireland has modeled for Sisley and Calvin Klein, for example, while Hailey has posed for Ralph Lauren and Philipp Plein.
