When one half of your genetic material comes from Hollywood royalty Sylvester Stallone and the other from famous '90s supermodel Jennifer Flavin, it's practically a calling to launch one's career in the same industry. And that's exactly what Sistine Stallone is setting out to do.

Joining the ranks of the social media savvy 17-year-olds with her fresh face and can-do attitude, Stallone is more than just her famous last name. Drawn to modelling from a young age, she took a leaf from mum's book and takes these wise words to heart: "Arrive a little bit early, stay a little bit later, and work as hard as you can in between". It's clear that she abides by a hardworking ethic and a strong devotion to the fashion world.

Her diligence is surely paying off, for Stallone is signed to IMG Models and has already worked on shoots with photography legends Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin. Off-camera, the teenager is a laid-back free spirit, sporting a comfortable but chic SoCal style, chilling out with friends and family in between tackling her final exams.

While her catwalk debut is still in the works, the young ingénue has already landed numerous editorial bookings and amassed an army of followers on Instagram. Going wherever modeling takes her, Stallone is one to keep your eye on as we foresee great things for this aspiring young talent.
