Carolyn Murphy: My daughter's too young to model

Carolyn Murphy: My daughter's too young to model

Carolyn Murphy won't be following in Cindy Crawford's footsteps by letting her daughter model yet.

Carolyn and Cindy are two of fashion's most recognisable faces, and they both have stunning daughters who have inherited their model genes.

However, unlike Cindy, whose daughter Kaia, 13, recently signed with IMG Models, Carolyn isn't letting her 14-year-old youngster Dylan Blue near a fashion shoot at the moment.

“Dylan has been approached recently on several occasions to work for a couple publications… but I told them very graciously that she’s too young. When she has something more that she can stand for or speak about, then it would make sense for her," she outlined to Threads.

“It really is such a personal decision for whoever it is. Cindy Crawford’s daughter, who is quite young, if that works for her, and her family, that’s great. But for my family, it doesn’t.”

During her career, the 41-year-old blonde has posed for Missoni, Versace and Tiffany & Co. She's also hosted Project Runway, posed for Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and was crowned VH1/Vogue's Model of the Year in 1998.

Carolyn didn't start her own career as a teenager, which clearly didn't hold her back.

“I didn’t start modelling until I was older… just let your kids be young. [Today] with all the self-promotion that comes with modelling, it can skew a sense of self.

"Your teen years are a time when you’re exploring that, and you don’t need the influence of people telling you who or how you should be," she added.
