There’s no doubt about it: celebrity kids have taken the runways by storm. For several seasons, Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and now, even Kaia Gerber (Cindy Crawford’s daughter) have made headlines not just for their talent, but for the fact that mom and dad happen to be ultra famous. Sistine Stallone (Sylvester’s daughter), Amelia and Delilah Hamlin (Lisa Rinna’s daughters), Clara McGregor (Ewan McGregor’s daughter), Christian Combs (P. Diddy’s son), and Sofia Richie (Lionel Richie’s daughter) are examples of this phenomenon, too.
But what about the catwalk regulars that come from not-so-flashy backgrounds? This season, a batch of diverse and empowered women continued to surprise us and make waves all the way from New York to Milan. And while Paris Fashion Week is still underway, 14 of these newcomers have already impressed us with their outspoken nature and ability to morph from one designer’s vision to the next. Some have walked for several seasons and even scored coveted fashion campaigns, but still, these are the models we think you should definitely know now.
