Style Week, Theme Week

There's a new generation of models on the rise and they all have one thing in common.

Having a supermodel for a mom means living up to some pretty high standards—not to mention, in some cases, living up to some pretty iconic legacies. On the flip side, there are definitely some perks. Like, for starters, you've basically won the lottery as far as gene pools go or what about the fact that you've...basically won the lottery as far as gene pools go. Amirite?

To kick off these fresh-faced introductions, we're starting with the spawn of an American idol.

Name: Kaia Gerber
Model Mom: Cindy Crawford
Age: 15
Height: 5'7.5"

Not only has she already made cameos in the pages of Vogue, Vogue Italia, Teen Vogue, Love Magazine and CR Fashion Book (did we mention she's 15?), but she's also already graced a couple covers: one alongside mommy dearest for Vogue Paris and the second completely solo for Pop Magazine. She also signed with IMG Models and starred in Alexander Wang's SS16 campaign. It's safe to say this up-and-comer will have a long and prosperous career.

This stunner and her big sister might just be taking over the modeling world...you know Gigi Hadid, right? Aside from that though, the fairly-new model is crafting a pretty hefty résumé of her own (flashback to her winning "Model of the Year 2016"). She's been on the cover of Vogue Turkey, ELLE, Allure, Glamour and so many more, she's walked in runway shows all over the world, she's starred in many fashion campaigns including one's for Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs and Topshop and to top it all off she's now the newest ambassador for Dior Makeup. Brava, Bella!

Kenya is one of music legend Quincy Jones' seven kids, along with her hilarious sister, actress Rashida Jones. She's already starred in Calvin Klein Jeans, DVF and Pop by Stella McCartney campaigns as well as made the pages of Flaunt Magazine, Teen Vogue and many more. Fun fact: When she's not in hair and makeup, she's moonlighting as an animal activist.

Model Mom: Vanessa Paradis
Age: 17
Height: 5'3

Around this time last year, Johnny Depp's French-American baby girl landed a contract with CHANEL and ever since she's taken the fashion world by storm. Vogue Paris, Love Magazine and Vanity Fair are just a few of the publications her face has graced since then. She's also a budding actress!

Name: Hailey Baldwin
Model Sis: Ireland Baldwin
Age: 19
Height: 5'7

You're probably familiar with this model-on-the-rise due to the fact she has some pretty famous friends (Kendall Jenner, Justin Bieber, the list goes on). But what you should be getting to know her for is her fast-climbing career. You might recognize her face from big ad campaigns like H&M, Topshop and, most recently, Guess. Her portfolio includes being on the cover of Marie Clare and in the pages of Vogue...needless to say, she's off to an impressive start.

Look for all these fresh faces on the runways at NYFW!
