Models with Familiar Names

There has been a recent uproar of models that are children of already famous parents. I feel like every week a see a new face on a magazine with a familiar last name. Some of the most popular models with famous parents are Gigi and Bella Hadid. The Hadid sisters are daughters of model mom, Yolanda Foster. Yolanda modeled when she was young and is now known for being on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Their father is famous real estate developer and millionaire; Mohammad Hadid. Gigi and Bella have taken the fashion world by storm and collectively have graced 20 Vogue Covers. Everyone knows the Hadids. Another famous model is Kendall Jenner she comes from the Kardashian family and her father used to go by Bruce, now Caitlyn Jenner.

Now there are even more new models you will hear and see soon on the runway and on covers of the magazines if you have not yet. Delilah Belle Hamlin has walked for Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce and Gabana and was in Teen Vogue. She is the daughter of actress, Lisa Rinna and actor, Harry Hamlin. She is only 18, but she is signed by IMG models and is making her way in the industry. Lilly-Rose Depp is the daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. She has made her way in high fashion walking in a Chanel and being in the pages of Oyster Magazine. The last model I will talk about is Kaia Gerber she is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and she has been modeling since she was a little girl. She modeled for Versace at the young age of 10. She is the spitting image of super model mom. She has already been in Teen Vogue and Vogue and she does not even have her license yet, she is 14.

There is some controversy when it comes to children of famous parents becoming models. Some people say they did not have to try and were just handed a career compared to the models that struggle to make it in the industry for years. No matter what the controversy is these models are killing it in the industry and becoming top models.
