When supermodel Kate Moss and daughter Lila Grace shared the catwalk in Milan this week they became the latest in a long line of models keeping it in the family.

Cindy Crawford, Yolanda Hadid, Yvonne Keating and Vanessa Paradis have all passed the tiara over to their daughters in recent years.

Last week in London, Kate stayed on the sidelines as she watched Lila open the Richard Quinn show but in Italy they were side by side for the Fendace event where Lila (18) donned a high-cut swimsuit, proudly showing off an Omnipod insulin pump on her thigh.

Later in the same show Kate took to the catwalk, making a mockery of the 29-year age gap.

There is no doubt that '80s pin-up Cindy Crawford and her model daughter Kaia Gerber share an uncanny resemblance.

Crawford made a name for herself doing commercial jobs like her iconic Diet Pepsi commercial, while also landing gigs like walking for Versace. Her work landed her in the elite supermodels, known as 'The Big Five' alongside Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer and Christy Turlington.

Gerber has worked with brands like Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs, Saint Laurent, and Versace. Her brother Presley is also making a name for himself in print and on the runway.
