36 Celebrity Children Who Are Taking Over Modeling

Famous kids are following in their parents's footsteps, from ad campaigns to magazine covers.

As the fall 2016 ad campaigns and magazines start to roll out, there's a big trend emerging – models with famous families. 

From Kaia Gerber covering Vogue Paris to Dylan Jagger Lee posing for Nylon to Bella Hadid becoming Paris Couture Week's breakout star, famous kids are everywhere. Honestly, it'll be hard to flip through a single magazine and not find yourself face-to-face with a bit of modeling nepotism, whether it's Rafferty Law walking for Dolce & Gabbana or Hailey Baldwin fronting Guess's new campaign. 

The obvious favoritism associated with celebrity models is ruffling some feathers in the industry — many feel as if these famous faces are taking away the spotlight from new and up-and-coming faces that could use the visibility.

But the flip side of these models is that many are descended from models themselves, or at least people famous for having pretty amazing bone structure. Look no further than Georgia May Jagger, Peter Brant II or Anna Cleveland to see that modeling genes really do pass on through the generations. Many of these celebrity models go on to have long and influential careers in the industry too, like Kendall Jenner, who has really transcended the "Kim's sister" label and become an "It" model in her own right.
