Jaden Smith, Lori Harvey, more celeb kids setting fashion trends

Wondering what the next big fashion trends will be? Fashion experts say children of celebrities might offer a clue.
Though some hailing from famous families pursue careers as actors and musicians, others claim the spotlight in the world of fashion, showing off chic and inventive looks on runways, magazine covers and, of course, social media.
But these celebrity offspring aren’t just pretty people aiming to sell clothes. According to Zoë Hennessey, a Los Angeles-based fashion stylist, children of celebrities are often trailblazers in fashion, pushing style into bold new territory as they form identities outside their parents’ shadows.
“They have to try, almost in a way, even harder to to be seen,” she said. “They have to even be more creative and push themselves more and push their own creative boundaries more, which I think makes them work harder and come up with something new that we haven’t seen before.”
Here’s how celebrities’ kids are shaking up the fashion world:
Leni Klum, 17, has wanted to follow in the footsteps of her supermodel mom Heidi Klum for years. Though she received modeling offers as early as 12, the teen got her official start at 16, posing alongside her mom for the January/February 2021 issue of Vogue Germany.
Her mom told the magazine that 16 was “a good age” to launch a modeling career.
“If you are allowed to drive a car, you can also have an official Instagram account and show your face,” the veteran model added. “And to be allowed to start with a Vogue cover is an insane privilege.”

According to Raquel Riley Thomas, a Washington D.C.-based beauty and fashion expert who has worked as a model and photographer, Klum isn’t just copying her mom’s cheerful modeling style. Rather, the teen brings an intensity to her shots that reflects her generation’s determination to change the world.
