From Lila Moss Hack to Dylan Brosnan: The celebrity children making a name for themselves as models

As Kate Moss’s daughter makes her catwalk debut for Miu Miu, we look at the other A-list offspring dominating the world’s runways

There’s a new saying in the world of modelling: if you want to get ahead, simply have famous parents. Easy peasy.

As the offspring of celebrities from the worlds of film, music and fashion elbow aside their non-celebrity counterparts for spots on the runways of London, Paris, New York and Milan, certain names have already become world famous.

Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber, the Hadid siblings Gigi, Bella and Anwar, Paris Jackson, Hailey Bieber and Kendall Jenner have all become celebrated fashion darlings thanks to their famous surnames and millions of followers on Instagram.

But the world of celebrity offspring modelling (or "nepotism modelling", as it’s also snarkily known) is much bigger than you think.

Eighties Pretty in Pink actress Molly Ringwald’s daughter, 16-year-old Mathilda Gianopoulos, started modelling aged 13 for US brand J Crew, while rapper Snoop Dogg’s 23-year-old son, Cordell Broadus, has modelled for both Kenneth Cole and Dolce & Gabbana.

Elsewhere, Bond star Pierce Brosnan's son, Dylan, 23, was handpicked by Saint Laurent designer Hedi Slimane to be the face of his latest campaign.

Here, we reveal some of the star children who got a Louboutin-shod leg up the modelling career ladder thanks to mummy or daddy’s celebrated surname.

Scroll through our gallery above to see which celebrity children have walked the catwalk.
