Many people follow in their parents footprints when it comes to choosing a profession. These ladies have the privilege of being the children of some of the most rich and successful people out there today. They all have career options: they can follow their famous parent’s path to success, or they have easy access to just about any other profession they might want to pursue. Who wouldn’t want the glamorous life of a model though?
Here’s a list of daughters with famous parents who have turned to modeling.

Kaia Gerber is an American model. In 2014, Kaia garnered a lot of media attention when word got out that she was following in her famous mother’s footsteps when she modeled for Teen Vogue.

Parents: Cindy Crawford And Rande Gerber
Kaia’s parents are Rande Gerber and supermodel Cindy Crawford. Cindy Crawford is a legend in the modeling industry. Many people were doing childish things when they were in their youth, but not Kaia.

Parents: Johnny Depp And Vanessa Paradis
Johnny Depp is an American actor and Vanessa Paradis is a French model and singer. They raised their children in France, potentially because France has strict paparazzi laws. Lily-Rose is in her teens and she is just starting out with her career. She has connections with her mother’s home base company, which is Chanel.
