Celebrity kid models have famous parents and good looks. That doesn’t mean they were a shoe-in for a lucrative modeling contract, because there is an amazing amount of competition to get on modeling agency books these days. A name isn’t always everything: they’ve still got to work to be successful and build a career. Here are some of the celebrity kid models who have been strutting their best in recent times.
1 Dylan Penn
Winning the genetic jackpot is definitely something, but making the right use of it is the real catch. Some celebrity kid models definitely know how to dazzle the world with their talent, and Dylan Penn is definitely one such name. Daughter of Robin Wright and Sean Penn, Dylan, at the age of 23, has signed with Premiere Models and really taken the modeling world by storm. She's the spitting image of her mother, whereas her disdain for artifice comes from her father, and with such talents, she truly knows how to stay in the spotlight.
2 Kendall Jenner
Her affiliation with the Kardashian empire brought her into the limelight, but she really blew out the notion that she was riding on the tails of the Kardashian reality train by making her debut on the Marc Jacobs runway – and how! She has already made a name for herself with her signature mega-lashes, long dark hair, and mesmerizing gait. With stints at Chanel and Givenchy, she's surely going to be one of the next big things.
3 Brooklyn Beckham
Who doesn't know Victoria and David Beckham, but more and more people have started knowing them as parents to Brooklyn Beckham. He was a star the moment he turned heads while attending a red carpet event with his mother. He started his modeling career in Man About Town, and is already a phenomenon in the world of modeling.
4 Kaia Gerber
Quite like a carbon copy of her mum, Cindy Crawford, but without a mole (or beauty mark above her left upper lip), it seems that Kaia Gerber will soon blossom into a 'supermodel' to make her mum proud. She has already taken the first step and even surprised the modeling world by becoming the face of Versace kid's line when she was just 10.
5 Gigi Hadid
Some celebrity kid models have seen the true light of fame so quickly that the fact that their parents are famous is often just an afterthought, and Gigi Hadid is one great example of this. Daughter of Yolanda Foster and Mohamed Hadid, Gigi started doing modeling assignments even before her mum, Yolanda Foster, was taking her reality spin on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She captured the limelight at the tender age of two, and Paul Marciano really helped her find her spot in the world of modeling. She has already fronted a number of campaigns for Guess and has appeared in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition.
6 Daisy Lowe
She's a star in the making, or she's a star already? With celebrity mother Pearl Lowe, father Gavin Rossdale, and even stepmom Gwen Stefani around her, what else could you expect from this charming young lady. Starting her career at 15, she now maintains a killer resume at the age of 25. She has already walked for Charlotte Ronson, Vivienne Westwood, and Nanette Lepore, and appeared in campaigns from French Connection, Burberry, and Karen Millen. And the real clincher of high fashion validation was that Karl Lagerfeld hand picked her for the Chanel runway.
7 Alexandra Richards
At 27, Alexandra Richards, daughter of Keith Richards and Patti Hansen, seems to have it all – she's already a popular DJ and has a sizzling modeling career with appearances made in a slew of major fashion publications. She is one of those celebrity kid models who have been shot by iconic photographers as Annie Leibovitz, Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier, and Craig McDean (to name a few). She made her daddy proud at the age of 17 when Mario Testino photographed her for the first time.
