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.
For example, Paris Jackson wrote the following in an Instagram post about friendship goals on June 10.
“Finding a genuine person and being lucky enough to call them your friend is one of the hardest things, and I’m hella blessed to have a handful of those… Caroline I love you so so much and hope you had an incredible birthday. You are such a treasure and an angel.”
When posting pictures of her group of friends, Paris Jackson captions it with “one big happy family.”
Outside of pictures relaxing with friends, Paris Jackson is also giving out book recommendations and showing some “personality” on Twitter. In particular, Paris Jackson has been giving a shout-out to the book The Kind Worth Killing, by Peter Swanson.
In addition to reading, Paris Jackson shows she likes to do crossword puzzles.
Paris Jackson also shows off that healthy Los Angeles ideal that modeling agencies are going for with pictures of her kelp salad. Paris Jackson showed more of her healthy side when she recently posted about her juice shots to toast the queen of England.
Of course, Paris Jackson might like fashion, but she still takes time off to be makeup-free as often as possible. For example, on June 8, Paris Jackson tweeted that she wore makeup “for the first time in ages for an audition” but then just ended up crying it all off.
Nevertheless, Paris Jackson also uses her status as celebrity to promote good causes. For instance, Paris Jackson posted a picture of herself with three women and captioned the photo about an October 27, 2016, police raid on the 1851 Treaty Camp in Lakota territory.
Paris Jackson closed after several paragraphs explaining the situation with #FreeRedFawn.
