2015’s Biggest Trend: Mini ModelsContrary to what you may have read, 2015’s biggest trend in fashion isn’t Marsala or inspired by the 70’s. The biggest trend this year is the emergence of mini models. Though the notion of celebrity-children-turned-models is nothing new, we predict that this year’s runways will see a rise in children aged 12 and under. Move over Sofia and watch out Kendall, this year’s top models are all 5 feet and under.

Armed with supermodel genes and celebrity status, it’s no surprise that celebrity offspring are taking over catwalks all over the world. What is surprising, however, is just how young these mini models are. At just 6 years old, Hudson Kroenig has already modeled for Chanel and Dolce and Gabbana. Just shy of 13, Romeo Beckham is already stealing the spotlight from his parents with front row appearances at fashion shows and playing a lead role for a Burberry short film. Other young models of note include Christy Turlington’s, Jennifer Lopez’s, Alessandra Ambrosio’s children––and this is just the tip of the iceberg.
