The Daughters of the Models Who Started It All.

Whether it’s nepotism or genuine talent, there’s no secret that children of models have a high likelihood of following in their mother’s footsteps. Throughout the 1980s and ‘90s, supermodels like Cindy Crawford and Heidi Klum dominated the industry. However, all good things must come to an end, and it seems that we’re in a new era of models. Who better for the job than those with supermodel genes! Just as the proverb says, the apple never falls far from the tree.
