We often are shocked by how much the children of celebrities take after their parents when it comes to their looks. There are also many who have gone on to follow in their parents’ footsteps by working in the entertainment industry. Some of these kids inherited their parents’ talent and became singers, rappers, and actors. But then there are those who opted to do modeling instead, some with the help of their parents’ contacts in fashion.
So which models are making money off of their celebrity parent-influenced genetics? Here are 15 models who you probably didn’t know also have celebrity parents.
1. Kendall Jenner
You might have already connected the dots between Kendall Jenner and her famous family. She is the daughter of Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, and now she is walking in some of the most famous runway shows. This is something that even her older sisters have never accomplished. But this career path wasn’t an easy choice and was difficult at first.
“Two years ago, when I first started this,” she told Vogue. “I thought: This is going to be so embarrassing. No one is going to accept me, and it’s going to be a complete failure.” She also tried to distance her work from her personal life. “Marc [Jacobs] invited my whole family to that first show, and I was like, ‘I love you guys, but can you please just not come?’ I was trying so hard to be taken seriously, like, ‘Guys: This is not a joke or a stunt; this is what I want to do with my life.’ I had to prove that I could do it.”
