Just a few short years ago, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner were classified as "celebrity kids." Today they're supermodels with more star power then their famous parents: Many of Gigi's fans don't even know who her mom (Yolanda Hadid) is, and Kendall has effectively distanced herself from the Kardashian brand, forcing the industry to take her seriously -- she's even become an impressive high-fashion photographer.
It's impossible to pinpoint which star spawn will grow up to take Hollywood by storm, but New York Fashion Week is a good place to start. Even an A-list family name can't guarantee a coveted catwalk spot, which means the lucky few have something special. This year, among the NYFW Fall/Winter 2017 models were Steven Spielberg's 20-year-old daughter Destry and Molly Ringwald's 13-year-old Mathilda. For more, see the gallery below!
