The Most Amazing Celebrity Daughters Right Now
For those us who care little for children of any age, celebrity children are a godsend. They’re usually pretty, really rather shy, and you get to appreciate them from afar. It seems like centuries ago that Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie ruled the teenage celebrity child club, and gosh, so much has happened since then. The celebrity offspring of the new decade is all about avoiding the paparazzi glare and pretending they’re just your normal girls next door. Unless, of course, they’re Suri Cruise, in which case they own the girls next door. So here’s a list of who’s currently doing the best job at being the daughter of someone famous and being amazing at the same time. By age.
She’s doing so well you almost forget she was famous before she was born, and for Elvis Presley’s grand-daughter, fame doesn’t seem to be that big of a deal. With excellent career choices such as The Runaways and Magic Mike, young Riley and her Presley-trademarked red wavy hair are Hollywood’s best antidote to its own occasional awfulness. Everything this girl says, does and wears is cool. But it would be when your mother is Lisa Marie Presley, one of the most awesome women on earth.
If you’re the daugher of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin, you’re born to—well, you’re basically Brigitte Nielsen, but you’re also born to be a 1980s supermodel, Claudia Schiffer style. There were no limits to where those genes could go, and in Ireland Baldwin’s case, it doesn’t seem like they’re quite done doing their thing. At 17, Ireland – who was the target of a certain amount of voicemail name-calling from her dad’s side a few years ago (she was ‘the little pig’) – is already signed to two modelling agencies and has appeared in Vanity Fair. Swoon.
Effortless is a word much overused in fashion writing, but when it comes to Lourdes Leon – or Lola, as her mother calls her – there’s no better word to cover the easy, unforced coolness this 16-year-old exudes. As the most famous person in the world, it was a brave step on Madonna’s part not to hide the identities of her children, but if the attention was ever an issue – or an attraction – for Lola, she’s certainly hidden it well. Balanced and nonchalant, and with a tomboy grunge look to rival Lily-Rose’s, the Queen’s daughter is already a fashion megastar. The magazine covers of the world are bracing themselves for the day she turns 18.
With everything that’s going on right now, it doesn’t really feel appropriate to drag Paris Jackson through the media circus. But when it comes to a list of the most amazing celebrity daughters, it wouldn’t be appropriate to leave her out either. There is no one like Paris Jackson. She shares that with her dad. And when she grows up, she will change the world too.
Forget about Kendall. When it comes to the young Kardashian’s there’s only queen and her name is Australian. While the other Ks – except for Khloe; there won’t be a bad word about Khloe – seem to be perpetually pre-occupied with beauty and fame, there’s something different about Kris’ youngest daughter. Kylie is a bit of a badass and she doesn’t mind recycling her extremely expensive Celine bag all the time. Kylie will grow up to be a rebel. Kylie’s pretty amazing.
