There's no question that 2014 was officially the year of the "celebrity" model — well, to be exact, the "celebrity offspring" model. With Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Hailey Baldwin et. al. making more headlines than most in the fashion world this year, we've closely watched (and investigated) this trend in order to discern whether it has any staying power. If the December cover of L'Officiel Italia is any indication, the answer is a resounding "yes."
Dylan Penn — the 23-year-old daughter of Sean Penn and Robin Wright — has been in the modeling game for a while now, with a nude shoot for Treats! magazine, an Elle feature and a sexy GQ bikini spread under her belt already in 2014. To round out her already-successful year, she scored the November cover of Glamour Spain (alongside male model Jon Kortajarena), an editorial in Vogue Italia and now this: the December cover of L'Officiel Italia.
Shot by Nick Hudson in a series of casual looks, the spread really lets Penn's natural beauty (aka: killer genetics) shine through. Given all the love Penn is getting from the European high-fashion community, could 2015 be the year that we see Penn make her Fashion Month runway debut? We'll be keeping our eyes peeled.
