These celebrity kids did not come to play at Dolce & Gabbana’s Alta Moda show in Venice.
Serving up serious style in haute couture crafted by the famed Italian fashion house, the children of Hollywood hotshots Heidi Klum, Christian Bale, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Monica Bellucci strutted their stuff on the catwalk near the servizio pier alongside the Doge’s Palace in St. Mark’s Square Sunday.
“Proud mom,” said Klum, 48, beneath an Instagram clip of daughter Leni Klum, 17, swaggering down the stage, dripping in diamonds and dressed in blue.
The tenured top model sat amongst fellow A-listers like Jennifer Lopez, Helen Mirren, Kourtney Kardashian and Megan Thee Stallion as Leni and the other babies of bigwigs paraded through the plaza in the couture show during Dolce & Gabbana’s multi-day fashion extravaganza.

The fashionistas were each transported from the canal to the catwalk by gondolas helmed by handsome men.
Here’s a look at how each dazzling descendant rocked the Alta Moda runway.
Chance, Jessie James and D’Lila Star Combs, daughters of Diddy
Clad in flouncy tulle minidresses, Chance, Jessie James and D’Lila Star Combs promenaded down the D&G catwalk. The teenage daughters of music mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs, 51, oozed opulence as they flexed their modeling strengths. Chance, 15, whose mother is Sarah Chapman, stunned in a shimmering mesh off-the-shoulder design with a red ribbon belt.
Her half-sisters, 12-year-old twins Jessie and D’Lila — the daughters of Diddy and model Kim Porter, who died in 2018 at age 47 of pneumonia complications — wowed in looks tailored to their individual styles. Jessie wore a silver pleated Lurex lace and tulle illusion corset dress with pastel blue accessories and a multicolored diamond necklace. D’Lila donned a black pleated taffeta boned dress adorned with a magenta belt and bling. Diddy’s three darlings made their modeling debut during Petite Parade’s 2013 Kids Fashion Week in New York.

Leni Klum, Heidi Klum’s daughter
Taking up the family business one step at a time, Leni Klum slayed the show with a sassy sashay reminiscent of her Victoria’s Secret modeling mom, Heidi. Outfitted in a glossy teal Alta Moda corset dress, the 17-year-old balanced a kaleidoscopic bejeweled crown atop her blonde tresses while striding to classical music.

Leni, whose biological dad is Italian businessman Flavio Briatore and adoptive father is Klum’s ex-husband Seal, officially launched her modeling career in January, at 16, on the virtual runway for Berlin Fashion Week. Soon after, she landed her first magazine cover, posing side-by-side with her mother for the January/February edition of Vogue Germany.
