Celeb kids are taking over the modelling world!
As adults, we use fashion as a means to express our personalities. In a world where first impressions count, the clothes we choose to wear can speak volumes. As kids though, practicality was our priority – if we could climb trees and race around the garden with the dog we were happy with whatever mum and dad dressed us in.
For the vast majority of the world this hasn’t changed; most parents opt to dress their children in clothes that let kids be kids, shopping on the high street or on sites like Lamaloli. However, things are a little different in the extravagant world of the rich and famous. On Planet Hollywood even kids’ fashion has to be expensive, exclusive and extraordinary. In fact, many children of famous parents have been picked to promote huge luxury brands!
Alexandra and Theodora Richards
Keith Richards, one of the original members of The Rolling Stones and by default one of the most famous guitarists in the world, has two daughters. Alexandra and Theodora Richards starred alongside fellow daughter-of-a-famous-rockstar Elizabeth Jagger in the 2002 Tommy Hilfiger campaign. Keeping it in the family, just a few months ago it was announced that Richards’ granddaughter Ella would be modelling for Burberry’s Autumn/Winter 2015 campaign.
Romeo Beckham, the undeniably beautiful son of David and Victoria Beckham, already has quite the modelling portfolio under his (no doubt haute couture) belt. UK fashion house Burberry reportedly paid the youngster £45,000 for one day’s work on their 2014 campaign!
Kaia Gerber is another child star following in her mother’s couture-clad footsteps. In 2012 the daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford starred in an ad campaign for luxury clothing brand Versace. Even without that famous beauty mark, we suspect this young girl can look forward to a promising career in the fashion industry!
Max and Emme Anthony
The twins of superstars Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were never going to be seen donning your average kids’ clothes. At just two and a half years old, the two little ones are ‘spokesbabies’ (no, we didn’t know they existed either) for Gucci. They’ve also made appearances at Chanel runway shows with their famous mother.
At just two years old North West already has an instantly recognisable signature look. Often wearing her hair in a ballerina bun, the daughter of American rapper Kanye West and reality star Kim Kardashian has modelled in custom Chanel clothes, and Givency have offered to create bespoke couture creations for her.
So it appears that it’s a lot easier to dip your toes in to the fashion industry if your mother already has a diamante-clad food in the door. Ok, we might get a little wrapped up in the magic of haute couture, but actually we’re not sure we want our little ones to be subject to it all quite yet – let kids be kids, we say. Plus, children grow out of clothes quickly, and our bank balances really couldn’t handle buying Balenciaga every other week!
