WOULD THESE MODELS HAVE MADE IT IF THEIR PARENTS WEREN'T FAMOUS?
By Amber Graafland
SHE'S the new face of Mango, but would Elizabeth Jagger have even been considered for such a glamorous job if she didn't have famous parents?
And Mick and Jerry's daughter is not the only celebrity offspring to clock up a few prestigious modelling assignments.
Ronnie Wood's daughter Leah and Rod Stewart's girl Kimberly are also emerging as rock 'n' roll models. But would they cut it on the catwalk if it wasn't for their A-list gene pool and celebrity surname?
Here's our verdict on whether the latest batch of celebrity children really are model material - or just catwalk kidders.
DADDY IS: Rock guitar legend Ronnie Wood (left).
LOOK: Leah has inherited her dad's quirky features.
CV: Has modelled for Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood and appeared in a Burberry ad.
VERDICT: Face facts. Leah is far too short for the catwalk, which suggests she's been booked in the past because of her rock 'n' roll kudos.
DADDY IS: Rubber-lipped Aerosmith frontman Steve Tyler (below).
LOOK: Sultry, voluptuous femme fatale.
CV: The face of Lane Bryant and a regular catwalk model for Intimate Apparel.
VERDICT: Having a rock 'n' roll dad and a Hollywood starlet for a sister (Liv) have undoubtedly helped Mia become a plus-size pin-up. Without their help, don't catwalk this way, love.
Theodora and Alexandra Richards
AGES: Theodora is 19 and Alexandra is 20.
MUM AND DAD ARE: Famous 70s model Patti Hanson and the Rolling Stones' wild axeman Keith Richards.
LOOK: All-American Ivy League, but sadly they have both inherited their father's heavy jawline.
CV: Both modelled for Brit design duo Eley Kishimoto. Theodora has just finished the new Burberry ad.
VERDICT: Hey, you two, get off of this catwalk.
DADDY IS: Pink Floyd's Roger Waters (below).
LOOK: Natural, laid back hippy with a Roman nose.
CV: The face of Sadie Frost's fashion label FrostFrench and Cotex. Made the Vogue cover.
VERDICT: All in all, just another fashion failure in the wall.
MUM AND DAD ARE: Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger and 70s supermodel Jerry Hall.
LOOK: Mum's looks and dad's pout, but also his tiny stature.
CV: Lancome cosmetics, Clements Ribeiro, Mango.
VERDICT: No satisfaction, far too short.
DADDY IS: Politician Jonathan Aitken (right), from a fling with socialite Soraya Khashoggi in the 70s.
LOOK: Bubbly brunette who has inherited her mum's glamorous, sultry looks.
CV: Modelled for high street store Oasis.
VERDICT:: A looker. Petrina was modelling for years before discovering she was Aitken's love child. In fact, finding out she had an ex- jailbird dad could have hindered rather than helped.
DADDY IS: Middle-of-the road crooner Chris de Burgh.
LOOK: Girl-next-door. An enviable figure but she has inherited her father's bland round-faced features.
CV: There was controversy when Rosanna was crowned Miss World 2003. But organisers denied the contest was a fix and that she had received more publicity than the other contestants because of her dad (left). She went on to model for Paul Costello.
VERDICT: No way. Even when the lady's in red she's not hot.
DADDY IS: Billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson (below).
LOOK:: Seriously cute, Sam oozes preppy charm.
CV: Modelled for British designer Ozwald Boateng while still studying.
VERDICT: Yes, he's Virgin on the ridiculously handsome. And Boateng had no idea who Sam was when he booked him.
MUM AND DAD ARE: Wrinkly rocker Rod Stewart and 70s model Alana Stewart.
LOOK: Lean and willowy - has her mum's stunning looks.
CV: Modelled for Tommy Hilfiger and House Of Field.
VERDICT: With her curves and striking beauty, Kim wears it well.
Danielle Riley Keough
MUMMY IS: Lisa-Marie Presley (right) - and gramps was Elvis.
LOOK: Striking face, just like mum.
CV: The face of Dolce & Gabbana. John Galliano said she was the "hottest model of the moment".
VERDICT: Not without the vital Presley connection. Return to sender.
DADDY IS: Neil Bush, brother of US President George Bush (below).
LOOK: Sultry senorita.
CV: On the books of the Ford Model agency. Has also appeared on the catwalk for Spanish label Toypes.
VERDICT: Lauren has a beautiful face but she doesn't have the figure for fashion or the catwalk. Without that presidential link, she just wouldn't get many votes.
btw, has anyone seen the new mango catalogue? i just flipped through it the other day and i was horrified! ms. jagger has only two different facial expressions in that catalogue: on 20 of the pages her mouth is slightly open and she looks completely stupid and the 5 other pages she just looks like a surprised fish.
Very interesting........I appreciate it Model Mom.
To me it seems that any famouse-link person wants and can become a "model" just because of their relations, and the same trend is turning up with musicians and actors. I dont think its right to name someone a "model" put them on runways, and in catalougs just because they share blood with the famouse. I know and have so many ordinary girls who are pursuing modeling and have the right features and they are let down because of celebreties who woke up and decided to have a want for modeling. Someone I know got ignored and sent home from IMG because Elvis P. grandaughter was in the agency. When she was in the elevator a sweet agent (cant mention her name) including Ivan B. saw her, asked her back to the agency and asked why she didnt get signed.
Back in the days Jean Harlow, Grace Kelly, and Katherin were actresses because they had talent and beauty........I wish the same concept would be also applied to modeling!!!
