What took so long? Neva Vodianova Portman, Natalia Vodianova’s 6-year-old daughter with ex-husband Justin Portman, has finally landed her first campaign after a little modeling hiatus.
She posed for childrenswear label Caramel Baby and Child, with whom Natalia collaborated on a cashmere dress and matching collar inspired by her Russian upbringing with proceeds going to Natalia’s charity The Naked Heart Foundation, the Telegraph is reporting.
However, it’s not the first time Neva has stepped in front of the lens. She made her modeling debut on the cover of French Vogue as a newborn (October 2006 issue, Neva was born in March of 2006). So, she was almost literally born a model. She then appeared in a Condé Nast advertisement when she was one and an American Vogue spread when she was two.
She’s the latest in a string of celebrity/model progeny to snag modeling deals. There was Noel Gallagher’s 12-year-old Kate Moss lookalike Anais, Gisele’s niece becoming a model and designer, and Cindy Crawford’s daughter starring in campaigns for Versace and JCPenney.
Will there come a day when all models are just descendants of other models?
