But whether you love it or hate it, it’s here to stay.

This English model has Jude Law and Sadie Frost as her parents—already winning in life from the moment she was born. Law made her first official on-camera appearance in Vogue when she was a toddler and later discovered her potential as a model with photoshoots for a brand named Illustrated People in her teens. Subsequently, she was recruited to become the face of Burberry’s beauty campaign. The young stunner has also starred in campaigns for top brands such as Versace, Marc Jacobs, and Moschino, and has walked in runway shows for Miu Miu, Missoni and more. 

Law also has a few acting experiences, starring in the movie I’ve Been Trying To Tell You and the miniseries Pistol. Off the runway, she’s a Gen Z It-girl who flaunts her bold style with vibrant colours and daring cut-outs.

This 24-year-old model is the daughter of Steve Jobs, the founder of the one-and-only Apple. Despite just signing on to DNA Model Management in 2022, she has already landed a huge campaign with Louis Vuitton, modelling its Twist bag for Winter 2022.  Her relationship with the House did not start there, though—prior to modelling, she was a regular front-row attendee at the brand’s shows. She was even dressed by the French label for her first Met Gala this year.

Jobs is the youngest of four daughters, with a net worth of 20 billion US dollars, according to Forbes. She’s got both beauty and brains, graduating from Stanford University before becoming pursuing modelling

She’s the 19-year-old daughter of ’90s icon Kate Moss, and has already worked with major brands like Marc Jacobs, Miu Miu, Chloé, Coperni and more. The younger Moss was spotted on several Vogue covers and has even opened for Miu Miu and Fendi at Milan Fashion Week. Currently, she’s thriving as the new face of Maje and is constantly creating her own iconic runway moments, including participating in the Victoria’s Secret 2023 tour.

Her best outfit style moments to date? It has got to be the matching mother-daughter looks, such as the one at the Fendace SS22 runway and matching Fendi pieces at the Met Gala earlier this year.

She may be Devon and Steve Aoki’s niece, but she’s definitely not overshadowed by those two icons. Born in America with Japanese-Dutch roots, Nu moved from California to New Jersey when she was younger. Today, the 26-year-old makes history as the first plus-sized model to be on the cover of Vogue Japan, and the first plus-sized Asian to front the Swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated, all the while growing her career as a singer. 

Being one of the few plus-size models who have made it big, Nu is an advocate for body positivity and a great role model for the curvy community, inspiring self-love and confidence in their bodies.
