Winning the genetic jackpot is one thing, but being able to handle it with grace and class is another. These star children or siblings certainly know their way about in front of the cameras
In the genes
While young Romeo Beckham (12) is certainly going to be a heart-breaker, Brooklyn, his older brother has only just broken out of his shell and how! At 15, Brooklyn is already on the cover of the Spring/Summer 2014 issue of Man About Town.
With his mum’s (Victoria) poker face and his father’s (David) physique, the camera seems to love his intense looks and almost-scowl. Although vastly different from the smiling and vibrant Romeo, both of them seem set to take on their parents’ legacy. Next up, Cruz control, we imagine.
She may not carry Elvis Presley’s surname, but Danielle Riley Keough has the looks of her iconic grandfather. She featured with her mother, Lisa
Marie on the cover of People magazine when she was born. Keough (who goes by the name Riley Keough), has been part of major Christian Dior fashion and perfume campaigns as Miss Dior Cherie after her modelling debut with Dolce and Gabbana. Also seen in films like Magic Mike and most recently in Justin Timberlake’s video TKO, playing a bitter girlfriend, she also models on occasion for Lee. All this when she’s not shooting for the cover of Vogue, with mother and grandmother Priscilla, 15, Keough recently got engaged to Ben Smith-Peterson.
Two is company
A spitting image of her gorgeous mother Cindy Crawford, Kaia, all of 12, has already made her foray into modelling. As the face of the Versace Kids line, she looked all set to secure her place as a model, until her mother put her new found career on hold — at least temporarily. But Kaia’s brother, Presley, is more than gifted behind the lens, goes trigger happy on family vacations, taking snapshots of his sister who is only too glad to pose for the camera. The duo looks set to take over the fashion industry. But we’ll have to wait for them to turn a bit older, as mother won’t have it any other way!
Quite literally the model son, Jude Law and Sadie Frost’s offspring, Rafferty Law, has his father’s dashing looks and knows how to strut his stuff. The 17-year-old was first seen as a ramp model for DKNY’s fashion show in London, three months ago. Soon after, he graced the cover of men’s luxury lifestyle magazine D Section, posing alongside fellow male models Oliver Cheshire, True Blood’s Giles Matthey and English judo athlete, Ashley McKenzie, for the black and white shoot. The story was about their personal heroes, and not surprisingly, Rafferty skipped his father, reserving the honour for Joe Strummer from the Clash. Not quite the model father, eh Jude?
Twenty one years after Kate Moss first modelled for Calvin Klein, her sister Lottie Moss is doing at 16, what Kate did at 18 . Lottie, who shares the same father as Kate, has been snapped up by Storm Models, who incidentally also signed Kate in 1988. Lottie is part of the Calvin Klein Jeans’ Re-Issue Project, which has rebranded iconic designs for this year in a limited-edition series. While already on the cover of Teen Vogue in April, this young girl has her sights set on Vogue. Something tells us she’ll get there sooner rather than later.
