The IT models of the moment from Gigi Hadid to Suki Waterhouse might be the talking point of Fashion Week – but their lil' sister's are also fast on the rise to supermodel stardom themselves. It’s time to pass the baton…

Olympia Campbell, 18
Sister of: Edie Campbell, 24
Star power: Olympia followed in her big sister Edie’s footsteps (literally) when she walked both Chanel and Sonia Rykiel SS15 catwalk shows with her last year. More recently, New York-based label Rag & Bone cast Olympia to showcase their pre-fall 2015 collection. David Neville, co-designer of Rag & Bone, commented, ‘We think is Olympia a style icon in the making.’ Edie – watch out.
Family values: To mark French fashion house Lanvin’s 125th anniversary, the Campbell clan stepped in to front their Fall 14 campaign, starring; Edie, Olympia, her mum Sophie Hicks, dad Roddy, brother Arthur and granny Campbell too.
Immy Waterhouse, 20
Sister of: Suki Waterhouse, 23
Star power: Immy’s all set to make a name for herself in the model world, with her star sibling firmly by her side. Immy signed to NEXT model management [Suki’s modelling agency] last November. One to watch.
Family values: Alongside inheriting Suki’s model genes, Immy also shares her sister’s attraction to older guys. Immy recently admitted she fancied Chelsea F.C. manager Jose Mourinho, 52. ‘I’ve always thought he was sexy.’ Mmm, he’s no Bradley Cooper, though.

Bella Hadid, 19
Sister of: Gigi Hadid, 20
Star power: There’s a definite buzz around breakout model of the moment Gigi Hadid – the newly appointed face of Maybelline, who’s often spotted backstage taking selfies with her supermodel pals Cara D and Kendall Jenner. But it’s her younger sis Bella, who IMG Model Management signed only months ago, that we’ve got our eye on. Expect big things from this girl next season.
Family values: No sibling rivalry to see here. ‘Honestly, I’m her biggest fan,’ says Bella of her sister’s modelling success. ‘When people ask me who my best friend is I always tell them it’s my sister. If anything, I know that Gigi just inspires me to work a little harder. I want to follow in her footsteps. I want to one day walk in Chanel, too.’
Lottie Moss, 17
Sister of: Kate Moss, 40
Star power: Her half-sister is fashion veteran Kate Moss. She had her first ‘test shoot’ with Storm modelling agency at 13. Family friends with Mario Testino. Mini Moss certainly knows the right people, that’s for sure.
Family values: She came to the attention of the Storm modelling agency as a 13-year-old, when she was bridesmaid at Kate Moss’s wedding to musician Jamie Hince in 2011. Explaining her career choice, Lottie says: ‘It kind of runs in the family. Kate was a massive part of why I started.’
Sofia Richie, 16
Sister of: Nicole Richie, 33
Star power: OK, so Nicole Richie’s not technically a fashion model (although remember her boob-flashing runway appearance back in 2006?), but we’re constantly crushing on her fashion week wardrobe. And we’re loving her little sister Sofia’s looks at New York Fashion Week this season – spotted at shows including Tommy Hilfiger and Alice + Olivia. The LA-born teen also landed a deal with Select Model Management in December.
Family values: Sofia says of her big sister’s fashion choices: ‘[She is] definitely my style icon, and she’s the best person to go shopping with. She’s really honest. Other people are afraid to hurt your feelings, so they’ll tell you something’s cute when it isn’t, but she’ll be like, “No, discard that.”‘
