Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris Jackson, has been modeling in her new career as a second-generation celebrity. However, instead of going to New York City to be at the center of the modeling world, Paris Jackson is part of the reason the modeling industry is moving to Hollywood.
In addition to Michael Jackson's daughter Paris Jackson, there are other celebrities that have children joining up with top modeling agencies around the world.
For example, Paris Jackson is with IMG Models along with Bella Hadid and Gigi Hadid. Mel Gibson's son, Milo Gibson; Ewan McGregor's daughter, Clara McGregor; and Sean Penn's son, Hopper Penn, are with Wilhelmina Models.
In the past, Paris Jackson would have been forced to move to New York City to have a career in modeling, but the new trend is moving toward Los Angeles, according to Hollywood Reporter.
Part of the reason they cited as to why Paris Jackson being in Los Angeles matters to her career as a model has to do with social media.
Along with Paris Jackson, Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner started their careers as social media stars before they were assigned with official modeling agencies.
Being a social-media-based model caused a lot of backlash in October 2016 before Paris Jackson followed in Gigi Hadid's footsteps when supermodel Stephanie Seymour came out against Gigi, Paris, and other Instagram models, according to Vanity Fair.
In addition to having lots of photo-ready celebrities and red carpet events, Los Angeles also was cited as having a "health ideal that's so attractive to fashion now."
While the focus may be on Paris Jackson and other models using social media to promote fashion, some see Los Angeles as being not only the next fashion capital, but also a melting pot for entertainment.
Faith Kates of Next Model Management was quoted as stating that "fashion is now about storytelling" and that it also has to have "personality."
Obviously, Paris Jackson has a lot of personality to offer her fans, and social media is where she does it best. For example, a recent post on Paris Jackson's Instagram shows a little bit of the storytelling that Faith Kates discussed as a key to modeling success in the age of social media.
Paris Jackson also shows a lot of authenticity in her storytelling and tends to show that she is just a regular young woman that is looking for success in many areas of her life including friendship.
