The world has been introduced to Emmy Russell, who just hit the radar when she made American Idol's top 20 finalists — and who we predict will join the next generation of celebrity royalty "It" girls. The 25-year-old singer, the granddaughter of country music legend Loretta Lynn, has clearly followed in her grandmother's footsteps, moving judges, along with host Ryan Seacrest to tears while performing Lynn's original song, "Want You". During the now viral performance, Russell also showed off her incredible style through various outfits, including this super cute puff-sleeved yellow and purple floral mini dress accessorized with retro white ankle boots that reminded fans of her superstar grandmother.

It's no secret that the worlds of fashion and Hollywood often collide. The Kardashians entered the mainstream as reality stars who happened to be the daughters of lawyer Robert Kardashian (who famously defended the late OJ Simpson). Perhaps your mind also goes to Hailey Bieber, who's the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin and has become famous as a high-end runway mainstay, beauty mogul and effortless street style star. And then there's Kaia Gerber, model and "It" girl of the moment whose mother is the legendary 90s supermodel Cindy Crawford.

Russell's arrival into stardom has us thinking of a few other rising stars who come from lineages of mega-famous celebrities and legends, but whose own brand of style and influence is having a major impact. If you're as intrigued as we are, meet the nepo babies who are blazing their own path in fashion and beauty.

Sofie Richie Grainge, Daughter of Lionel Richie

As a major player in the popularity of the quiet luxury aesthetic, Sofia Richie Grainge has long cemented her own identity outside of being Lionel Richie's daughter. She got her start with a Teen Vogue feature at just 14 and has captivated the fashion world ever since. The mom-to-be then modeled for Chanel, Jeremy Scott, Philipp Plein and Dolce & Gabbana. She also taps into fashion design, having produced collaborations with various brands, including Solid & Striped and David Yurman.

Kaia Gerber, Daughter of Cindy Crawford

As the daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford, Kaia Gerber has also pursued a career in modeling with much success. Although she's walked for Chanel, Miu Miu, Loewe, Valentino and other major brands, Gerber rose to mainstream prominence in 2019 when she invested in W magazine as the publication entered its new era. Furthermore, she's enjoyed many cover girl moments, including Vogue, British Vogue and ELLE.

Hayley Beiber, Daughter of Stephen Baldwin

A trendsetter and owner of cult-favorite beauty brand Rhode, Bieber is more than just Stephen Baldwin's daughter and Justin Bieber's wife. The 27-year-old is a high-demand model, having worked with the likes of Prabal Gurung, Versace, Tommy Hilfiger and Moschino and most recently has turned into a street style star rocking anything from oversize outerwear to the pantless trend.

Lila Moss, Daughter of Kate Moss

As the daughter of one of the most iconic 90s supermodels Kate Moss, Lila Moss was born into style. Her fresh-faced blond hair and blue-eyed look is similar to Sydney Sweeney, but she has her mother's sleek figure and timeless essence. Naturally, the 21-year-old is following in her supermodel mother's footsteps, having major campaigns and magazine covers under her belt, from Chloe to British Vogue. She often embraces quiet luxury with a hint of glamour, often wearing neutral colors and delicate silhouettes.

Iris Law, Daughter of Jude Law

As the daughter of Jude Law and Sadie Frost, Iris Law has always been a beauty. She's recently come into her own after a major hair transformation, now rocking a bleached pixie cut that's reflective of her witty personality and edgy style. Law further showcases her down-to-earth personality through unfiltered photo dumps of her eating at diners, enjoying the company of friends and experimenting with makeup. Not to mention, she's appeared in campaigns for multiple designer brands, including Marc Jacobs and Miu Miu, and even expanded to the runways of Versace and Burberry.

Amelia Gray, Daughter of Lisa Rinna

Amelia Gray has become a bona fide style star and it's not because Real Housewife Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin are her parents. Known for her goth-inspired style on and off the runway, Gray has quite an impressive résumé, having modeled for Balenciaga, Chanel, Givenchy and Ann Demeulemeester. She most notably closed Lacoste's Fall 2024 show dressed in a sequin embellished sweater, a cream skirt, frilly socks and a white jacket, creating her own idea of the goth aesthetic.
