The children of celebrities have a lot to live up to, not least because they sometimes have some of the best-looking moms and dads around. Whatever their different talents, though, there’s no denying the fact that the following 50 women have at least inherited some of their parents’ good genes, as they’ve all turned out to be exceptionally beautiful.
69. Gwyneth Paltrow
Gwyneth Paltrow, lest anyone forget, has starry parents of her own in Blythe Danner and Bruce Paltrow. So while the Oscar-winning Hollywood icon may have honed her talent by herself, it’s them that she needs to thank at least in part for her beauty.
68. Bianca Bree
Bianca Bree doesn’t mind being associated with her famous father. Well, that’s the impression we get considering the fact that the angelic actress has appeared alongside dad Jean-Claude Van Damme in no fewer than seven of his feature films to date, most prominently taking the lead role in 2013’s U.F.O.. But then, when you have a pa who kicks butt like JCVD, it’s impossible to blame her.
67. Dylan Penn
There are definitely aspects of her mom, actress Robin Wright, in Dylan Penn’s features, and that’s undeniably a good thing. Sean Penn’s daughter has said that she aims to eventually follow her parents into Hollywood. For now at least, though, she’s a gorgeous model by trade.
66. Rumer Willis
Striking Rumer Willis looks like the perfect mix of mom Demi Moore and dad Bruce Willis. It’s perhaps fitting, then, that she’s taken up the family line of work – with acting stints in the likes of 90210 and Pretty Little Liars.
65. Sosie Bacon
With that surname, fresh-faced Sosie Bacon could only be the daughter of Hollywood heavyweight Kevin and his actress wife Kyra Sedgwick. And even though Sosie’s famous parents warned her off a Hollywood career, that hasn’t stopped her from taking up movie and TV acting roles over the past decade.
64. Sophie Simmons
Hardly anyone could guess from looking that Sophie Simmons is the daughter of KISS frontman Gene Simmons, so perhaps her mom, onetime Playboy Playmate Shannon Tweed, is the guiding influence on that front. Sophie has attempted to follow her dad into music, though, and she doesn’t need his face paint to look good.
63. Nicole Richie
The adopted daughter of Lionel Richie and his first wife Brenda, Nicole Richie has grown out of her wild-child socialite ways to turn into a glamorous mom and fashion designer. She’s definitely become more beautiful over the years as well.
62. Lily Costner
Unlike famous father Kevin, lovely Lily Costner decided not to pursue acting as a career – although she did make a few childhood appearances on screen. That said, she’s now an aspiring singer/songwriter, on occasion teaming up with her dad to perform with him and his band.
61. Angelina Jolie
Angelina Jolie was virtually born into the role of uber-attractive Hollywood A-lister. After all, she seemingly bagged both the good looks and talent of her mother, actress and producer Marcheline Bertrand, and father, Oscar-winning Jon Voight. The result? One world-conquering, world-saving star.
60. Bria Murphy
Bria Murphy is equally as beautiful as mom Nicole Mitchell Murphy and has put those stunning looks to good use as an in-demand model. What’s more, like dad Eddie, Bria’s also making her way into acting, although only time will tell whether she has her pa’s flair for comedy.
59. Francesca Eastwood
When your father is none other than Clint Eastwood, you have a lot to live up to in the acting stakes – and even more so when your mom, Frances Fisher, is a highly accomplished star in her own right. Francesca Eastwood seems, however, to be up for the challenge, plying her trade on screen and being easy on the eye while doing it.
58. Lily Collins
With the burgeoning success of her movie career, Lily Collins has definitely stepped out of the shadow of feted dad Phil. And no offense to the former Genesis drummer, but she’s far better looking than her father to boot.
57. Eva Amurri
If her movie and TV resume is anything to go by, Eva Amurri shares more than just good looks with Susan Sarandon. After all, the mom-and-daughter pair have some credits to their names together; most notably, they both showed up on screen in an episode of Friends.
56. Kendall Jenner
Thanks to her appearances on a little show called Keeping Up With the Kardashians, practically everyone knows that Kendall Jenner is the daughter of Kris and Caitlyn. And it can’t have escaped anyone’s notice, either, that the up-and-coming model has grown into a gorgeous young woman.
55. Ireland Baldwin
Actor dad Alec may have given Ireland Baldwin her last name, but credit for the model’s cool blonde beauty must mostly go to her glamorous screen icon mom, Kim Basinger.
54. Allison Williams
Allison Williams is best known as the gorgeous but highly strung Marnie in HBO comedy Girls, and it’s a role that has seen her threaten to eclipse the fame of her well-known dad, NBC news anchor Brian Williams.
53. Zoe Kravitz
Zoe Kravitz has turned out to be as much of a head-turner as both mom Lisa Bonet and dad Lenny Kravitz. Plus, she’s followed in each of her famous parents’ footsteps in career terms, having lit up the silver and small screens and released records in a way that suggests she’s inherited some genuine talent.
52. Dakota Johnson
Maybe in choosing to star in the filmic adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey Dakota Johnson was hoping to finally step out of the shadows of her parents, Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith. After all, it certainly brought the brunette beauty a chance to shine – and more than a little fame by association, away from mom and dad.
51. Schulyer Fisk
The dazzling Schulyer Fisk definitely has some things in common with her famous mom: the strawberry blonde hair and a number of screen credits to her name, to mention but two. The daughter of Sissy Spacek was even taught guitar by the Oscar-winning actress, and this is something that’s stood her in good stead as a singer/songwriter.
50. Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann
As the daughter of Isabella Rossellini and the granddaughter of the late Swedish actress Ingrid Bergman, it’s no wonder that Elettra Rossellini Wiedemann is an absolute siren. And just as mom once was too, she’s the very appealing face of cosmetics brand Lancôme.
49. Bee Schaffer
Given the fact that mom Anna Wintour is the renowned editor of American Vogue, it’s perhaps unsurprising that beautiful Bee Shaffer has tried her hand at journalism. She’s also made the move into television and movie producing – all keeping her quite the busy, well, Bee.
48. Rainey Qualley
If Rainey Qualley looks strangely familiar, then it might be because of her risqué turn as Cindy in the season eight premiere of Mad Men. Then again, it could be down to the fact that the stunning actress and musician bears a definite resemblance to mom Andie MacDowell.
47. Paulina Gretzky
For any ice hockey fan, the drop-dead gorgeous Paulina Gretzsky’s last name will immediately give away the identity of her famous father. He is, of course, NHL legend Wayne Gretzky, and no doubt dad is proud of the success of Paulina’s modeling career.
46. Coco Sumner
Music may have been the obvious career choice for Coco Sumner, as her dad is none other than Sting. Sumner is the attractive middle child of three that the British pop star has had with Trudie Styler, and here’s hoping she reaches the heady heights of her father’s success.
45. Kate Hudson
Kate Hudson followed mom Goldie Hawn and dad Bill Hudson into Hollywood, and with those blonde bombshell good looks, it’s not hard to tell which parent the Golden Globe-winning actress most resembles.
44. Norah Jones
Norah Jones’ voice is as gorgeous as the rest of her, so success as a singer/songwriter may have come naturally. And it probably didn’t hurt her to have a musically very accomplished dad in the late Indian sitar star Ravi Shankar, himself renowned for having worked with The Beatles.
43. Lourdes Leon
Lourdes Leon seems to resemble her mom, pop legend Madonna, more and more as the years pass, and given how good the Material Girl still looks, that’s not a bad thing at all. What’s more, Lourdes has even chosen to study at her iconic mother’s alma mater, the University of Michigan, something of which madge no doubt approves.
42. Louisa Gummer
Louisa Gummer is definitely striking enough to be a model – and funnily enough, that’s what she’s turned her hand to, having picked up gigs for the prestigious likes of Dior and Vanity Fair. If she ever fancies getting into acting, though, she’d have a pretty great teacher on hand in the form of her mother, who’s none other than Meryl Streep.
41. Tali Lennox
Tali Lennox may be the eye-catching daughter of singer Annie Lennox, but she nevertheless made quite the name for herself as a top model. These days, though, like her mom she’s often to be found in a studio – albeit painting rather than making music.
40. Katherine Schwarzenegger
While dad Arnold may be the biggest action star on the planet, Katherine Schwarzenegger, it seems, isn’t following in his wake. Instead, she’s taking her career cues more from her journalist/writer mom Maria Shriver; in 2010 the brainy beauty had her first book published at the tender age of 20.
39. Zelda Williams
Given that she is the daughter of the late, great Robin Williams and movie producer Marsha Garces Williams, it’s perhaps no surprise that Zelda Williams is now forging a screen career herself. The stunning 26-year-old may be recognizable from her appearance, with her father, in a Nintendo 3DS commercial for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D – part of the very franchise for which she was named. She has also starred in Teen Wolf.
38. Emma Roberts
Emma Roberts was born with looks seemingly sculpted for the camera and, just like father Eric, has made great strides in both TV and movies. Having an Oscar-winning aunt might have helped a bit as well; Emma, in fact, starred alongside Julia Roberts in 2010’s Valentine’s Day. The 24-year-old is, though, now making waves on her own as a lead in Fox’s Scream Queens.
37. Amber Le Bon
With Duran Duran frontman Simon and star model Yasmin as parents, it was perhaps inevitable that Amber Le Bon was going to grow up a beauty. Amber has followed mom into the modeling world and netted some high-profile campaigns to boot – with the likes of Pantene and Forever 21.
36. Liv Tyler
Liv Tyler didn’t know she was the daughter of Aerosmith singer Steven until a chance meeting with him when she was a pre-teen. A part in her father’s band’s promo for “Crazy” a few years later, though, set the gorgeous actress on the way to finding fame in blockbusters like Armageddon and the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
35. Vanessa Simmons
Vanessa Simmons got a leg-up on the fame ladder by appearing on Run’s House, the MTV reality show centered on Run-D.M.C. member and Vanessa’s dad Joseph “Rev. Run” Simmons. Since then, the eye-catching offspring of the hip-hop legend has struck out on her own as host of spin-off series Project Runway: Threads.
34. Rashida Jones
Rashida Jones has eschewed taking up the musical mantle of her producer father Quincy and instead followed mom Peggy Lipton’s lead into acting. A smart move, for sure, as her turns in beloved sitcoms Parks and Recreation and The Office, among others, show that she’s as talented a comic actress as she is beautiful.
33. Greer Grammer
Greer Grammer’s good looks were recognized early on when she was crowned Miss Teen Malibu at the age of 16. Since her pageant days, though, she’s followed father Kelsey into stardom on the small screen, most notably appearing as scatterbrained Lissa Miller in MTV’s teen comedy Awkward.
32. Alexa Ray Joel
Like father Billy, Alexa Ray Joel is an accomplished pianist and singer. Like mother Christie Brinkley, though, she’s starred in an advertising campaign for shampoo brand Prell – and it’s mom whom she has to thank for those good looks.
31. Corinne Bishop
Many fathers tend to over-praise their children’s looks, but Jamie Foxx’s claim that daughter Corinne Bishop “turned out beautiful” could even have been an understatement. The dazzling 21-year-old made an appearance at the prestigious French society event Le Bal des Débutantes in 2014 and was recently named Miss Golden Globe 2016.
30. Gia Mantegna
Glamorous Gia Mantegna seemingly caught the acting bug from father Joe, with whom she made her screen debut at just 13 in 2003 family dramedy Uncle Nino. The 25-year-old has since taken up a lead role in TeenNick show Gigantic and a recurring part in ABC sitcom The Middle.
29. Miley Cyrus
Even Billy Ray Cyrus might not have guessed that daughter Miley would grow up to eclipse his fame. But she certainly has: one break-out role in Hannah Montana later, and she has been courting controversy ever since as one of the world’s biggest and most risqué popstars.
28. Kim Kardashian
Even at the height of his O.J. Simpson-defending fame, Robert Kardashian was never as omnipresent a figure in popular culture as his middle daughter Kim has become. And whatever you might think of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and wife of Kanye West, there’s no way that you can deny her striking beauty.
27. Dominik García-Lorido
It’s hard not to concur that Dominik García-Lorido has inherited father Andy García’s smoldering good looks. Not only that, but she’s taken her cue from dad career-wise as well; her appearances on both the big and small screens have included a part in Starz drama Magic City and a leading role alongside Jason Statham in 2015 movie Wild Card.
26. Bryce Dallas Howard
Bryce Dallas Howard is now making such strides in Hollywood that it’s possible to believe she’ll soon overshadow the fame of her director/actor father Ron. The flame-haired beauty broke into the big time with her turn in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and then became familiar to millions thanks to a starring role in 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World.
25. Stella Banderas
Stella Banderas lacks the name recognition of her half-sister Dakota Johnson; unsurprising, perhaps, since she’s only just graduated from high school. However, with parents Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith’s guidance, we’re sure this shy stunner is going to go far, whatever career she decides to find her feet in.
24. Jillian Hervey
Jillian Hervey is the daughter of singer and actress Vanessa L. Williams and is shaping up to prove herself just as talented – and ravishing – as her famous mom. Hervey is one half of neo-soul outfit Lion Babe, who may very well hit the big time when the duo’s debut album, Begin, hits stores in February 2016.
23. Eve Hewson
Eve Hewson is as eye-catching as any rock star – even more so, for sure, than the one she has in her family. She’s yet to follow in dad Bono’s footsteps, though, having eschewed a music career for an increasingly successful one in acting: Hewson has appeared in 2015 Steven Spielberg thriller Bridge of Spies and currently stars in Cinemax’s The Knick alongside Clive Owen.
22. Katie Cassidy
Given that father David Cassidy was considered an idol in his prime, it’s no surprise that his daughter, actress Katie, has been setting hearts similarly ablaze. She’s best known for her leading role as vigilante Laurel Lance in Arrow; similarly impressive credits on her resume include parts in Gossip Girl and Liam Neeson’s Taken.
21. Ruby Stewart
Taking after both her showbiz parents, Ruby Stewart has found dual success as a model and singer. Stewart, whose mother was also a model, has used her good looks to promote lingerie brands such as Ultimo, while she has sung with rocker father Rod onstage, too.
20. Cazzie David
Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld creator Larry David isn’t an obvious sex-symbol, owing to his taste for awkward comedy. Presumably Cazzie – his daughter with blogger Laurie David – doesn’t share the same problem, though, as the gorgeous Emerson College student’s Instagram snaps show.
19. Sophia Stallone
Action icon Sylvester Stallone has three daughters with wife Jennifer Flavin. Their eldest, Sophia – a 19-year-old student at the University of Southern California – has all the makings of a star, and we’re sure we’ll see plenty of her in the years to come.
18. Alexandra Richards
Having posed for prestigious publications like Vanity Fair, Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, Alexandra Richards is a successful model in her own right. Inheriting her good looks from Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards and model Patti Hansen possibly gave her a bit of a head start, though.
17. Chelsea Tyler
Like her half-sister Liv, Chelsea Tyler started her career as an actress – appearing in teen sitcom Lizzie McGuire at the age of 13. However, she soon followed Aerosmith-singer father Steven into the music biz and currently performs in electronic duo Kaneholler alongside her husband Jon Foster.
16. Lizzy Jagger
The eldest daughter of rocker Mick Jagger and former model Jerry Hall, Lizzy Jagger has, like her mom, used her stunning good looks to build a respectable career in fashion. Debuting on the catwalk when she was just 14, the porcelain-skinned siren has since modelled for Tommy Hilfiger and Mango.
15. Annie Guest
She may not share the same features as her adopted mother Jamie Lee Curtis, but Annie Guest is a beauty, just like her celebrity parent. Also raised by comedian and screenwriter Christopher Guest, Annie is as graceful as she is beautiful and currently works as a dance teacher.
14. Hailey Baldwin
Another glamorous girl in the Baldwin family, Hailey – like her cousin Ireland – is a rising star in the modeling world. Yet though Hailey has posed for Ralph Lauren and Topshop, the daughter of actor Stephen caused the biggest frenzy when she began dating Justin Bieber earlier this year.
13. Billie Lourd
Although she’s followed mom Carrie Fisher’s lead into acting, Scream Queens star Billie Lourd admits that her parents almost stopped her career in its tracks. “My whole life, they said ‘Do not act. You need to get a college degree,’” she told E! News in 2015. Evidently, though, mother doesn’t always know best.
12. Sasha Spielberg
Sasha Spielberg had a good start to her acting career; after all, having Steven Spielberg – one of Hollywood’s most influential figures – and actress Kate Capshaw as parents probably helped open some doors. Regardless, roles in films such as The Kids Are All Right have made this enchanting ingénue one to watch.
11. Lorraine Nicholson
Having inherited the warm smile and good looks of her father Jack, Lorraine Nicholson is an actress who oozes charisma and charm. She made her screen entrance at 13 but is best known for her later work on the 2011 surf film Soul Surfer – in which she showed off her beach bod as well as her acting chops.
10. Stella Keitel
Born to parents famous for their roles in mob movies, Stella Keitel – daughter of Harvey and Lorraine Bracco – is thankfully warmer than her parents’ on-screen personas might have you believe. An actress in her own right, Keitel has appeared on screen with her parents in the films Goodfellas and Bad Lieutenant.
9. Jessica Springsteen
While many on this list have pursued careers in fashion or film, Jessica Springsteen – daughter of “Born to Run” singer Bruce – always had different ambitions. A champion show jumper, she has been riding from the age of four and has represented her country in the Show Jumping World Cup.
8. Ida Lundgren
Though born to action movie star Dolph, Ida Lundgren has enjoyed a quiet life outside the Hollywood spotlight. However, her appearance in her father’s 2009 film Command Performance suggests an interest in acting, and – with her smoldering looks and svelte physique – it’s easy to see her as a star.
7. Lily Atkinson
With her sultry manner and striking brown eyes, Lily Atkinson has few of the traits that made her father Rowan – aka Mr Bean – a comedic icon. Atkinson still shares her father’s thirst for the spotlight, though, and performs as a cabaret singer in London.
6. Ava Sambora
The daughter of actress Heather Locklear and rock star Richie Sambora, Ava Sambora has looks that won’t harm her taking on either of her parents’ professions. She has, however, in recent years revealed aspirations of becoming an actress, so perhaps father Richie may be left a little disappointed.
5. Scout Willis
While her older sister Rumer followed parents Bruce and Demi Moore into acting, Scout Willis looks set on a career in fashion. After working in the costume department of her dad’s 2012 film Moonrise Kingdom, chic Scout released her own clothes line in 2015.
4. Emerson Tenney
While some celebrity children might be seen as spoiled brats, Emerson Tenney – Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher’s daughter with actor Jon – is anything but. A philanthropist at the age of 18, Tenney has worked with numerous charities and runs a blog that raises awareness to the causes she works for.
3. Mamie Gummer
We imagine that Mamie Gummer managed to get a few acting tips from her mother Meryl Streep before making her own mark in the movies. The radiant actress has appeared with Jennifer Aniston in Cake as well as with her mom in 2015’s Ricki and the Flash.
2. Dree Hemingway
With her sharp cheekbones and a complexion to die for, Dree Hemingway has made strides in the world of modeling with campaigns with Gucci and Chanel under her belt. The great granddaughter of Ernest Hemmingway has also taken after her Oscar-nominated mom Mariel, having starred in films such as 2014’s While We’re Young.
1. Georgia May Jagger
Gorgeous Georgia May Jagger followed in the footsteps of mom Jerry Hall when she became a model. And given her stunning looks – not to mention the full lips she’s inherited from her Rolling Stone father Mick – it’s small wonder that she’s picked up a slew of high-profile campaigns since entering the field.
