For the upper echelons of British society (read: the very, very rich), the Condé Nast glossy Tatler has long been a go-to title. From lavish parties and exotic vacations (including features on private jet etiquette) to glimpses inside the fabulous lives of Royals and "It" girls — the magazine provides readers with the ultimate in luxury lifestyle coverage, with a smart, sassy slant.

When it comes to its covers, Tatler often has fun with cover lines (example: "Help! I Inherited a Castle") and casts pretty young things who didn't exactly bring about their own fame — perhaps a celebrity offspring or up-and-comer in society — but who have sparked the public's interest in some way. And the September 2016 edition of the magazine is no exception, as it features 21-year-old Ellie Wintour — that'd be Anna Wintour's niece — posing alongside her friends in the best of the fall collections. The student at York University has attended fashion shows with her aunt in the past, but this is her first major editorial shoot, and she's dressed head-to-toe in designers that the Vogue editor would certainly approve of: Chanel, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Fendi and more.

The younger Wintour is studying English literature, so we wouldn't be surprised if a career in magazine editing is in her future; Anna Wintour's father, Charles Wintour, was a famous newspaper editor, and her brother, Patrick Wintour (Ellie's father) is a renowned journalist as well. As for the modeling bit? While celebrity offspring are certainly enjoying a moment in the spotlight, we'll have to wait and see if she'll ride that wave with future bookings. Head on over to Tatler now to see the full editorial, and take a peek at the photos below.
