In a big week for celebrity offspring, Cindy Crawford and Annie Lennox’s daughters have landed modelling contracts for Versace and Karen Millen’s latest campaigns. Young Kaia Crawford is beginning to follow in mum’s footsteps and Tali Lennox continues to establish her name in the modelling world.
Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia is the new face of Young Versace. The 10-year-old child of Cindy and Rande Gerber has been praised by the brand’s creative director Donatella Versace, who says the camera “loves her”.
She said,”Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift. The camera really, really loves her. Having Cindy on-set for the shoot took me back to all the amazing Avedon shoots we worked on together. It was such a special treat watching Kaia walk in her mother’s footsteps!”
Cindy is also delighted her daughter is following in her footsteps because she has such fond memories of being model for the Italian fashion house. She said, “I’m so thrilled that Kaia was chosen to be part of the first Young Versace Campaign. I have so many fond memories of the times I spent with Gianni and Donatella. There is something so very special about the House of Versace.”
Cindy recently claimed models had a hard time getting work as they now had to sing and act in addition to looking their best. She said, “I just saw the CoverGirl commercial with Taylor Swift and I thought, ‘Wow, it is so hard for models to get a job these days.’ You have to sing and act, too. There doesn’t seem to be as much work specifically just for models.”
Tali Lennox’s campaign for Karen Millen has been unveiled. The daughter of Scottish singer Annie Lennox and Israeli film and record producer Uri Fruchtman is the new face of the British fashion label and creative director Gemma Metheringham is thrilled with the “uplifting” campaign featuring Tali.
She said, “To sum up the mood of the season, it is upbeat and uplifting, and this is reflected in our new campaign. Our collection has a lightness to it and, as this is the season of the separate. We are encouraging our customers to create their own looks and style using our wonderfully versatile pieces.”
The 19-year-old beauty has replaced Victoria’s Secret model Jessica Hart as the face of the campaign and Tali previously revealed she is thrilled with her developing career as a model because she never liked school. She explained, “I was never really the type who wanted to be at school. I don’t believe in the pressure of having to follow a certain timeline. It’s great when you’re doing a shoot and it’s something bizarre; you can feel really confident in a different character.”
