The '70s and the '80s were the supermodel glory days, when women like Cindy Crawford, Christie Brinkley, and Beverly Johnson dominated the fashion scene.

Now, a new crop of models are appearing on runways, in magazines, and campaigns - and many of them are the children of former models.

Yolanda Hadid supported her daughters Gigi and Bella Hadid in their rise to stardom, while supermodel Kate Moss recently shared a runway with her 18-year-old daughter, Lila Grace Moss Hack.

Take a look at these celebrity parents who passed on their modeling legacy to their children.

Lila Grace Moss Hack is the daughter of '90s supermodel Kate Moss and Moss' ex, Jefferson Hack. Despite being young, Kate Moss' daughter has earned a number of high-profile modeling campaigns in recent years. She has worked for Marc Jacobs, Chanel, and Miu Miu, as well as appeared on the cover of her father's magazine Dazed.

Lila also recently walked in the Fendi Spring/Summer 2021 runway show during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week alongside her mother. In fact, they're signed to the same agency.

Cindy Crawford and her model daughter, Kaia Gerber, share an uncanny resemblance. Crawford's son, Presley Gerber, has also inherited her supermodel genes.

Cindy Crawford is a living legend in the fashion industry. She made a name for herself doing commercial jobs like her iconic Diet Pepsi commercial, while also landing high fashion gigs like walking for Versace. Her work landed her in the elite mix of the '80s and '90s supermodels, known as "The Big Five," along with Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer, Christy Turlington, and later, Stephanie Seymour.

Crawford and her daughter, Kaia Gerber, could almost pass as twins. The rising model has inherited her mom's genes, and has worked with brands like Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Saint Laurent, and Versace.

Kaia's brother, Presley Gerber, is also making a name for himself in print and on the runway. In January 2018, Presley joined Kaia as the face of Calvin Klein Jeans' global advertising campaign and then walked for Balmain at Men's Paris Fashion Week 2018.

Before becoming the world's most famous "momager," Kris Jenner did a little modeling. Her daughter, Kendall Jenner, is now the highest-paid model in the world.

Despite modeling earlier in her life, Kris Jenner has said she didn't "know really anybody in the modeling industry" when Kendall expressed her interest in becoming a model, according to Harper's Bazaar.

However, after connecting with famed Victoria's Secret photographer Russell James, Kris was able to secure a meeting for Kendall that would drastically change her life. Kendall Jenner has now walked in three Victoria's Secret Fashion Shows.

Among her many Fashion Week appearances, Jenner has walked for Chanel, Miu Miu, Vera Wang, Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs, Fendi, and Versace. In 2017, Jenner was named the world's highest-paid model by Forbes.

Male model and actor Tyson Beckford's son, Jordan, is now also a model.

Jordan Beckford, a chip off the old block, is signed by Soul Artist Management. The 23-year-old has walked the runway for Tommy Hilfiger in Shanghai, appeared at Paris Fashion Week, and scored a number of high-profile modeling campaigns.

Beckford is also heavily involved in the music industry and has even produced music for one of his father's cologne campaigns, according to Us Weekly.

"I'm really a proud dad because most 21-year-olds don't have their life together. He's got his together," Tyson Beckford told Us Weekly.

Mother-daughter models Christie Brinkley and Sailor Brinkley Cook look uncannily alike.

Brinkley made a splash in the fashion world when she returned to Sports Illustrated in 2017, posing alongside her daughters Sailor Brinkley Cook and Alexa Ray Joel.

Brinkley officially joined the Sports Illustrated 2018 rookie class, making her the "first-ever second-generation swimsuit model," according to Sports Illustrated.
