While young girls these days are occupied worrying about acne, boyfriends and girlfriends, and all the awkward stages of growing up, these two teens are busy gaining ground on It Girl territory. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, yes, we're talking about Lily-Rose Depp and Kaia Gerber who are slowly but surely making their mark in the fashion world.
Lily-Rose, 17, daughter of actor Johnny Depp and French singer, model, and actress Vanessa Paradis, and Kaia, 14, daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford, are both celebrities in their own right. Making a name for themselves at such young age, these two have their own sense of style that sets them apart from the rest. They are totally similar and yet totally different, too.
Below are the seven reasons why we think they are It girls on the rise.
1. They've already bagged international campaigns.
Lily-Rose is Chanel's latest muse! She first fronted their eyewear line, and then now she's also become the face of Chanel No.5 L'Eau. She’s definitely following in the footsteps of her mom who was also once a favorite of the French fashion house.
Miu Miu recently tapped Kaia to lend her youthful, carefree spirit to the brand's Scenique eyewear. Make sure to watch the campaign's video: She dives into a pool at a very post-Friday night house with flamingos and floaties. Oh, and she's also the latest member of the Alexander Wang squad for S/S 2016.
2. They've graced the covers of some of the most prestigious magazines.
To be a magazine cover girl is definitely a must on an It Girl checklist. Lily-Rose has been on the cover of titles such as Vanity Fair France and LOVE Magazine—proof that her French flair has its charm.
For Kaia, magazines are basically her second home. To date, she's fronted Vogue Paris alongside her mom! Aren't they both stunning?
3. They're models by nature.
Thanks to her mother's model background and her French je ne sais quoi, Lily-Rose is total runway bait. She's a natural in front of the camera, and it shows during red carpet events—she lets her svelte figure and pouty lips do the talking.
Fun fact: Kaia is signed with IMG Models. She's got numerous editorials under her belt, published by Teen Vogue, Self Service, CR Fashion Book, Vogue, and Vogue Paris. With her statuesque gait and laid-back glam style, we're sure to see more of her.
4. They love enjoying their free time.
When these kids aren't working, they're out having some fun. And for Lily-Rose, fun means a dress-up game with her friends whom she can be weird with. She's your '90s grunge girlfriend next door.
For Kaia, life is a sun-drenched day with your hair down while enjoying a smoothie in downtown L.A. She loves hanging out at the beach (and looks great while at it, too).
5. They run with the cool kids.
What's a cool girl without her crew? Apparently, Lily-Rose spends a lot of time with Bella Hadid and even Stella Maxwell. She's also got a ton of friends from her acting stints—with a movie coming soon!
Okay, this pic just seals the deal on Kaia's growing It girl status...
6. Great genes = great selfies. Need we say more?
Depp's affinity for all things understatedly cool is even evident in her au naturel beauty looks. Plus, manicured tips in an eye-popping color.
Kaia's highlighted beach waves, on point brow game, and highlighted cheekbones always steal the show.
7. They have their personal styles down pat.
Her style is a mix of her father's eccentricity (remember her "sour" sixteenth birthday?) and her mother's Parisian insouciance. Check out this black off-shoulder number she wore at the 69th Cannes Film Festival. Très bien!
Although she's much younger compared to Lily-Rose, Kaia's taste in fashion is well-refined. She translates her personality through versatile looks that could either pass for a YSL or an American Apparel campaign.
