Next Top Models? Sailor Brinkley Cook and Willow Smith Strike a Pose for Teen Vogue

07/08/2014 at 04:40 PM ET

When your parents are rich, famous and beautiful, you get cool clothes, fabulous vacations — and, if you’re Sailor Brinkley Cook or Willow Smith, your own career as a model. Both teens recently landed major spreads in Teen Vogue; read on to see what they had to say about fashion, modeling and more.

Smith, 13, invited the cameras into her home — and in some photos, posed in her own clothes — for a candid look at her much-talked-about life with her famous parents, Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. One way her family might differ from yours? “My whole family, we love Cartier,” she confides, adding that her favorite pair of shoes came from Chanel mastermind Karl Lagerfeld himself. “They make me feel like a sophisticated Amazon woman,” she shares.

She says her style has mellowed in recent years (“My style is who I am all the time, and who I am always changes”) though we can expect her to keep us on our toes. And as for that famous, once-whipped-back-and-forth hair, now cut short and dyed blonde? “My hair is super, super, super, super hard to destroy,” she says. “It’s a survivor!”

Brinkley Cook, 16, is the child of supermodel Christie Brinkley and ex-husband Peter Cook, and she’s definitely inherited her mother’s sunny “I’m on a yacht” good looks. And fittingly, she poses in all-American denim looks for her five-page spread, from pencil skirts to overalls. Though she’s ordinarily a fan of skinny jeans and boyfriend jeans, her favorite place to shop for them is her mom’s closet.

“She gives me all her jeans when she gets tired of them,” she says. “I chop off the bottoms if they’re flared or turn them into jean shorts — a bunch of DIY stuff. No bedazzling, though!” Read more of her thoughts on style and summer jobs at (and see more from Smith here).

I think that Willow is beautiful girl and she seems confident in her own skin. For 13 that is awesome…hope she always feels that way!

Sorry! Poses and pics are not very appealing!

I think that Willow is really becoming more and more beautiful. I hope she doesn’t become stuck on herself liker her Mom tho:(

LA on

Sailor looks just like her Dad, Peter Cook…..who is a very handsome man.

Mary on

Neither one would be modeling if it weren’t for the fame of their parents.

Susan on

Willow Smith is destined to be a bad@ss. She’s had a nasty attitude since she was 6. I can’t judge Sailor because I’ve never heard her open her mouth before.
