A far cry from the likes of Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, these children of celebrities have made sure that the world knows their names not because of their parentage, but because of their talents. Icons in their own right, these ten celebrities have shown that they are not to be overshadowed by family fame (or infamy).
10. Stella McCartney
Sir Paul McCartney’s daughter Stella McCartney has become a British icon in her own right. After she began making her own clothes at the age of 13, she interned with Christian Lacroix at 16, followed in the footsteps of Karl Lagerfield while working at Chloe, created her own incredibly successful clothing brand, and built 23 stores on some of fashion’s most coveted real estate in New York, Los Angeles, and London. Four children and zero divorces later, McCartney is now serving as Adidas’ creative director for Team Great Britain for the upcoming London Summer Olympic Games.
