FAMILY TIES: When it comes to having famous parents, the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. The next generation of young talents have some familiar last names.
Brooklyn Beckham was the boy behind the camera for Burberry’s Brit fragrance campaign. He has appeared on the cover for Man About Town magazine and modeled for clothing brand Reserved.
Beckham’s younger brother Romeo has appeared in several ad campaigns for Burberry. He previously fronted the spring 2013 campaign alongside Cara Delevingne and Edie Campbell, photographed by Mario Testino. In 2014, he was featured in the Burberry festive campaign and the film “From London With Love.” In 2015, he was in the brand’s Christmas campaign along with Sir Elton John, Naomi Campbell, James Corden and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
This week, WWD revealed that Stella McCartney (who has famous parents of her own) tapped Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon for the campaign for her latest fragrance, Pop. The University of Michigan performing arts student appears alongside Amandla Stenberg, the actress, comic book writer and activist, and the singer Claire Boucher, known as Grimes.
Kenya Kinski-Jones, the model, student, animal activist and daughter of Quincy Jones and Nastassja Kinski, is also in the ad campaign and has known the McCartney family since she was a child.
Lily-Rose Depp, the daughter of Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp, was featured on the cover of the spring 2016 issue of Love Magazine. This was Lily-Rose Depp’s first magazine cover. She wanted to pursue an acting career at 14, when she shot “Tusk” — her first fiim — directed by Kevin Smith in 2014.
The 16-year-old has three films set for release this year: “Planetarium,” “The Dancer” and “Yoga Hosers” — where she will star alongside her father. Last year, Chanel tapped the young actress as the face for their campaign for the Pearl eyewear collection.
Rafferty Law, a son of Jude Law and Sadie Frost, has worked as a model and is now planning to pursue a music career. He’s DJing, writing music and attending the London School of Sound, doing courses in music technology, production and engineering.
“It means that I can record other people’s music,” said Law, who’s built a recording studio at home and working on his own “punky and raw” music.
Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis, a son of the actors Daniel Day-Lewis and Isabelle Adjani, is also an aspiring musician. He told WWD that he dropped out of Berklee College of Music in Boston to pursue his career full-time.
“I’m aspiring to be signed, but it’s not easy. You need a lot of perseverance and patience,” said Day-Lewis, whose first album is set to be released in June. He describes it as a mix of “pop and soul acoustic with a phonic feel.”
Cindy Crawford’s 14-year old daughter, Kaia Gerber, is following her model mom’s footsteps, having shot for Teen Vogue, Interview, Vogue Italia and CR Fashion Book. Gerber, who is represented by IMG, will appear in the upcoming Chrome Hearts’ spring 2016 campaign.
Willow Smith, the singer, actress and dancer, recently took in the Chanel show with her mom Jada Pinkett Smith during Paris Fashion Week and shortly after was named the new face of Chanel Beauty. Meanwhile, her 17-year-old brother Jaden is starring in Louis Vuitton’s spring women’s wear campaign alongside young models Sarah Brannon, Rianne Van Rompaey and Jean Campbell.
