The latest news on the celebrity offspring beat: Rafferty Law was photographed out on the town in London on Friday night, along with his mom Sadie Frost, looking all grown up. Rafferty is the progeny of one of the most era-defining couples of the early Millennium red carpet, Sadie Frost and Jude Law, and is a model and musician. This revelation comes in the wake of the internet furor stirred up by Lily-Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis. And against the near-constant fever pitch of excitement surrounding the Smith children and their prana energy. Who's next? we ask.
Clearly, if you are/were ever a teenager you were sold at "in a band." But the 18-year-old also does look a lot like his dad, which did not escape the beady eyes of DKNY's casting agent, who booked Jude Jr. to walk in the brand's spring/summer 15 show, nor the team at Select, who have already signed young Rafferty. His portfolio includes editorials for British Vogue as well as Another Man. What about his band, you ask? It's called the Dirty Harrys, and he writes all the songs. Some Pulitzer-level investigative journalism reveals that the band will be performing in London on May 4.
Like a vision conjured by a teen magazine editor, Kaia Gerber is the 13-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford and is gazelle-like. She has already appeared in a Young Versace campaign (aged 10) and, though she says she "doesn't see the resemblance" to her mother, she has modeling ambitions of her own, appearing in a Teen Vogue editorial recently. She admitted in her interview that she is "not super-glam… I wear jeans and a T-shirt most of the time." But she has been spotted in a v. House of Style-era plaid mini skirt.
Jack, son of Val, has essentially already become a celebrity in his own right. His lead role as Teddy in last year's Palo Alto, directed by Gia Coppola (celebrity children unite!), proved that he is a legitimately talented actor. And his fashion credentials are healthy, too. The 19-year-old walked in Saint Laurent's 'Psych Rock' runway show last June, and starred in the brand's spring menswear campaign. His chin-length mop of hair — which looks as though it was last washed in a tour-bus sink — was crying out to be photographed by Hedi Slimane.
Gray is a photographer (and occasional Olympia Le-Tan lookbook model) who lives in New York. While her photographer father, Mario Sorrenti, is responsible for bringing the world the 1992 Kate Moss for Calvin Klein Obsession ads (and for providing the internet with iconic #TBT images like this and this), Gray also takes a great picture herself. Favorite subjects: her brother, Arsun, and friends including Blue Lindeberg (daughter of fashion creative Johan Lindeberg). She also recently appeared in an editorial for Self Service shot by her dad, and co-starring the likes of Chloë Sevigny, Grace Hertzel and Lily Donaldson.
The Beckhams were surreally perfect in 1997, when fate brought the Spice Girl and star footballer together at a charity sports match, and looking at the now four-child-strong family sitting front row at Victoria' NYFW show — in matching ensembles — they are still almost too flawless to be real. (Harper obviously did not get Anna Wintour side-eye, unlike certain other celebrity infants.) Brooklyn, as the eldest, has been the first of the power offspring to make his own foray into fashion editorials. He graced the cover of Man About Town last year, while his brother Romeo appeared in a Burberry campaign.
