She’s the daughter of legendary supermodel Christy Turlington

So it was hardly surprising that Grace Burns held her own on the runway as she made her Milan Fashion Week debut on Thursday. 

Strutting her stuff down the catwalk, the 19-year-old model looked sensational in a one-shouldered floral dress at the Alberta Ferretti show.

Daring to go braless, the sheer garment clung to her incredible figure as she sashayed past the other models. 

A pair of strappy heels gave her model frame a boost, while her raven locks were slicked back to showcase her stunning features.

Christy, 54, shares Grace with actor husband Edward Burns, 55. The couple are also parents to 17-year-old son Finn Burns. 

Grace made her runway debut in June when she walked in the LuisaViaRoma & British Vogue Runway Icons show at Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence. 

Prior to that she worked for fashion designer Caroline Herrera in April.

Grace posted images to her Instagram page where she was holding up a Herrera purse in a shoot by Georgina Millet.

The rising star smartly expressed her gratitude over the modeling gig in her caption, penning: ‘Indescribably grateful to have had the privilege and opportunity to be apart of this experience!

‘All the love in the world to every single divine human who made this possible!!!!!!!! Tears of love and love and more love!!!! Xxxxxxx.’

Christy became one of the most successful models in history thanks to her cover girl looks and enviable figure, but in Apple TV+ docu-series The Super Models, she revealed how she was punished, aged 26, for a slight fluctuation in her weight.

She opened up about the shocking moment she was cut from a runway show in Paris because she had gained ‘a little bit of weight’ after she quit smoking.

‘In 1996, I remember being in Paris for the couture and I gained a little bit of weight because I’d quit smoking, and… I got released from a show,’ the mother-of-two recalled.

But instead of feeling pressured to embark on a diet or to change her fitness regime, Christy was inspired to step back from working as a full time model and turn her focus to education. 

She explained: ‘I remember feeling like, “Well, I’m not gonna let this make me feel bad. I just made a decision for myself which is probably one of the best decisions I’ve made.

‘“And so maybe now is the time. I don’t really want to subject myself to take anymore.”’

The supermodel went on to study at New York University, where she gained a Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in Comparative Religion and Eastern Philosophy.

The model gushed about her university experience, claiming they were the ‘most important years of my life’.

She said: ‘Those were some of the most important years of my life because that’s where I was really able to make the investment in myself and who my future self was gonna be.

‘I just found so much inspiration to do so many other things. It was such an incredible four years.’

THE NEW NEPO MODELS

There are nepo babies of all kinds.

Consider the actors that have famous folks (like Maya Hawke’s mom Uma Thurman and dad Ethan Hakwe) and even business types (before Donald Trump came to fame he worked at the firm of his father, Fred Trump, a New York City real estate developer who ran Elizabeth Trump & Son).

Now there are nepo models which are new models that have famous model moms.

And the list seems to be growing every year. 

Here is a look at the top nepo models working today.
