It pays to have good genes — the denim ones also.
There are advantages and disadvantages to being thrust into the world of Hollywood when your parents are some of the industry’s greatest — but the access is undeniable and some just have the business gene and are strategically able to use it as a platform.
The closest us little people will get to iconic designer looks is flipping through a $9 copy of Vogue (which is already expensive AF TBH) but some celeb kids have made a name for themselves by utilizing their connections and their passion to break into the world of runways and high fashion. They’ve worked hard to separate themselves and their craft from their parents and we are ABOUT their individualism and capability to put on something that’s not jeans and a sweater on a day to day basis.
These kids from famous families may have been influenced by their surroundings, but they’ve become true fashion icons in their own right.
From pushing back against the industry’s conventional boundaries to dominating the runway — these celebrity spawn are currently SLAYING the fashion game:
Zoë — daughter of rocker Lenny Kravitz and actress Lisa Bonet — is a jack of all trades. She’s an actress, model, AND lead singer of her band LOLAWOLF. Her unique personal style has landed her all kinds of big roles with even bigger fashion brands, including becoming the face of campaigns for Calvin Klein, Balenciaga, and Alexander Wang.

Reality TV royalty and supermodel of the moment Kendall Jenner has captivated us ever since she first set foot on the runway. Her endless campaigns and struts down the runway have showed us just how dedicated she is to dominated the fashion world even more than she already has.
Will and Jada have a knack for birthing style icons. Their youngest child — daughter Willow — is this month’s cover girl for Teen Vogue, and was recently selected by Karl Largerfeld himself as the next brand ambassador for Chanel. SLAY QUEEN.

When she’s not vacationing with the Biebs, Hailey is KILLIN’ it as a model for major fashion houses like Tommy Hilfilger.
Victoria Beckham’s son was BOUND to inherit some serious style.
As previously stated, we’re forever grateful to Will and Jada for populating this world with incredibly stylish spawn. When Jaden’s not acting, rapping, or tweeting, he’s pushing the traditional boundaries of the fashion world. He’s been making waves as a model for Louis Vuitton as well as sporting clothing typically viewed as womenswear. We’re HERE for this bold display of gender-bending fluidity. Plus, skirts are comfy AF — dudes, you’re missing out.
North West & Penelope Disick
Shout out to these two cuties for being our fashion inspo on the daily — even though we’re two decades their senior. TEACH US YOUR WAYS!!! We just know that as they grow they will continue to develop unique styles and a passion for fashion like their parents.

Miley certainly goes all out in the wardrobe department, but that’s what we love about her. If you wouldn’t be caught dead in it, she’s probably already worn it. We wish we could muster up just a small portion of her fearlessness when it comes to fashion. In conjunction with her animal rights activism, she’s publicly campaigned for the industry to end the use of real fur on the runway.
Madonna’s daughter Lourdes is the living DEFINITION of fashionista. Constantly switching up her signature look, she’s always one to set trends — never follow. She co-founded the fashion line Material Girl with her style icon of a mama, and is currently the face of designer Stella McCartney’s latest fragrance POP.

Besides having a gorgeous name (and daddy), Lily-Rose is also an actress and model. The native Parisian is known for working with Chanel — a match made in heaven.
