Meet the New Famous Kids of Fashion Week, From Lourdes Leon to Miles Richie


For the month of September, a new crop of scions pop up on the runway and in the front rows of various international Fashion Weeks. Children of models who end up becoming models, or children of musicians and actors who end up becoming models, make their way to the fashion world to become established fixtures of the runway in their own right. Some faces may be slightly more familiar than others, but many scions who have been hovering around the fashion world finally made their official Fashion Week debuts as models to watch this season. From the runways in New York to the catwalks of Paris, these are the scions you should look out for, for many seasons to come.

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree for Tyson Beckford’s son Jordan Beckford, who walked in his debut runway show during Fashion Month for Tommy Hilfiger in Shanghai. Lewis Hamilton, Hailey Baldwin, Jessie J, and Winnie Harlow were in tow as Beckford appeared in his first-ever runway show.

Sonia Rykiel director Julie de Libran’s son Balthazar made his runway debut this September, when he walked in the Sonia Rykiel Paris Fashion Week Show. The 12-year-old scion brought a special guest—his family’s puppy.

Miles Richie

Sofia Richie is not the only child of Lionel’s with a taste for fashion. After signing with IMG models in February, Miles Richie, the 24-year-old son of Lionel and older brother of Sofia, walked in Philipp Plein’s New York Fashion Week Show. This fall, the tatted up scion made his return to fashion week, but sat in the front row instead of stomping down the runway in his combat boots.

Milan Fashion Week was a family affair for the Rossellini clan. Isabella Rossellini (let’s not forget, she’s technically a scion herself) and her son Roberto Rossellini attended the Dolce & Gabbana Spring 2019 runway show, as did her daughter Elettra Wiedemann. The newest addition to the family also joined the crew, as Wiedemann held Ronin, her eight-month-old baby son, as she walked.

Kailand Morris

Milan Fashion Week continued to be big for families this year, as Stevie Wonder’s son Kailand Morris closed the Dolce & Gabbana show alongside Karen Elson, while his father sat front row with Cardi B and Liam Payne. This season, the 17-year-old model also walked for Pyer Moss in New York.

Lourdes Leon

It feels like it’s been months in the making, but this New York Fashion Week, Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon finally made her runway debut. The 21-year-old walked for Gypsy Sport, modeling a Gen Z earth mother look of tattered jeans and tiny sunglasses.

Damian Hurley

Elizabeth Hurley’s son, Damian Hurley, has been a consistent character featured on his mom’s Instagram page, but now, he is also a bonafide model. The 16-year-old has appeared on screen with his mother before (on an episode of her E! series, The Royals), and now he has chosen to follow in her footsteps even further, as he signed with his mom’s modeling agency, Tess Model Management. Since Hurley has only just signed with the agency as of September, he did not show up on the runway this season, but next season this scion could be one to watch.
