Leni Klum, the model daughter of Heidi Klum and Seal has made a rare red carpet appearance with her dad at the LA premiere for Netflix film The Harder They Fall

The 17-year-old cuddled up to her father, who adopted Leni shortly after his marriage to Klum in 2005, while posing for cameras at the ritzy event. 

Seal, 58, has contributed to the soundtrack of the movie, and took his daughter along for moral support.

The teenager, who made her modelling debut on the cover of Vogue Germany's January/February issue, looked at home on the red carpet in a tasselled, black mini dress. 

Seal looked sharp in a black three-quarter length coat which he teamed with a crisp, white shirt and tie, black jeans and black brogues.

The father/daughter duo leaned into each other as they smiled for pictures together, before joining Leni's boyfriend 18-year-old hockey player Aris Rachevsky and other members of the film's cast and crew. 

Leni has been busy carving out a career as a model following in her mother's famous footsteps

Having bagged the cover of the German edition of Glamour earlier this year, she also opened Berlin Fashion Week and walked in the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show in August.

The teen model rocked a floral print dress with statement sleeves for the cover, which came 20 years after her mum became the publication's first-ever model.

Speaking about her daughter's decision to become a model Klum told People last December: "I always thought she was too young. We always also decided to keep the children out of the public eye. But she's driving a car now, so I figured if you can do that, you can also model now if this is what you wish to do."

She's also given Leni some valuable advice about life on the catwalk, telling her it is "okay to say no" when it comes to her career.

"I said to her, at the end of the day you have to be happy with yourself," she continued to the publication. 

"And don't do anything you don't want to do. It's okay to say no. You don't always have to please people. But I'm always with Leni. And she has a very good head on her shoulders." 

Another famous daughter who has been carving out a career in modelling is Clara McGregor, daughter of actor Ewan McGregor. 

The 25-year-old recently landed a prestigious role as the face of Bluebella Lingerie's Autumn Winter 21 campaign. 

In a new interview to promote the partnership, the model admitted she would never have had the confidence to shoot the campaign if she hadn't headed to therapy to battle her demons.

Explaining that she began suffering from chronic anxiety at the age of four McGregor says she spent years being held back by her mental health issues.

Leni Klum and Clara McGregor are not the only ones to follow in their famous parents' footsteps by hitting the catwalk. 

Blessed by the genetic Gods, various celebrity offspring have been snapped up to model for fashion's big hitters. 

From supermodel Cindy Crawford’s lookalike daughter Kaia Gerber, to model siblings Jaden and Willow Smith, it seems celebrity children are increasingly strutting their stylish stuff. 

Lily Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis has been making waves in the world of fashion since making her debut in Chanel’s Metiers d’Arts Show back in 2016

Meanwhile Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon has also been making a name for herself in the modelling world, since stepping off the F-Row and onto the catwalk back in 2018 for New York Fashion Week.

Wearing a daring shell bra, the then 21-year-old, looked right at home as she clomped down the runway in oversized boots teamed with a pair of shredded, hip-grazing jeans with black underwear showing.

And she's certainly in good company, with the likes of fellow A-list kids Margaret Qualley, daughter of Andie MacDowell and Paul Qualley, Hailey Baldwin, daughter of Stephen Baldwin and Kenna Baldwin, Helena Christensen's son Mingus Lucien Reedus, Lila Moss, daughter of Kate Moss, Iris Law, daughter of Jude Law, Damian Hurley and Lennon Gallagher all carving their own fashion footprint.
