Is Alessandra Ambrosio's 4-Year Old Daughter the Youngest Supermodel Ever?
Nov 08, 2012 - by Emily Draznik
When your mom is Alessandra Ambrosio, modeling is in your genes. So does that make Alessandra's 4-year old daughter Anja the youngest supermodel ever? Check her first print campaign for London Fog after the jump.
Some kids were just born to model and others were born from models. It looks like Alessandra Ambrosio's daughter Anja has a little bit of both worlds as she lands her first campaign starring alongside her mother for London Fog.
Considering Alessandra walked last year's Victoria's Secret fashion show secretly two months pregnant with her son Noah, her children have been getting accustomed to runways and photo shoots from the womb. Alessandra told the Telegraph her thoughts on her children modeling at a young age stating, "Having my daughter steal the spotlight is pretty funny and I just love it. I'm so proud of her."
So do we have a mini Victoria's Secret angel in the making? If Anja continues to land high profile gigs like this, then by the time she is 12-13 she could be following in her mother's footsteps on the runway. But you know what they say, you have to crawl before you can catwalk. That being said let's keep an eye on Anja for the next couple of years and when she becomes as big of a deal as her mother, we will proudly say, "We told you so!".
The fashion industry has been cracking down on the use of underage models. Vogue has put out a Health Initiative stating that they are no longer using models under the age of 16 and considering their track record already, we're a little skeptic.
