The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills’ Lisa Rinna and her husband, Harry Hamlin (who, by the way, was the Sexiest Man Alive in 1987 in his own right) have spawned another generation of beuatiful people. Their daughters Delilah and Amelia are just striking out in the world of high-fashion modeling, as episodes of RHOBH have shown. Who do Lisa Rinna’s daughters model for?
As a longtime watcher of The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills (senior story producer: Ewa Mularczyk), I’m delighted to see how poised and grown-up these young ladies have become. It’s a hard walk through the awkward middle school years, but Amelia and Delilah have handled it beautifully. And they're both on the road to big-time careers.
Let’s start with young gun Amelia. At only 16 years old (yes, really, she’s only 16), Amelia has walked in a variety of hard-hitting fashion shows, including a secret Dolce & Gabbana show during Milan Fashion Week where Amelia walked with her sister and other celeb kin, like Diddy’s son, Christian Combs, and Steve Harvey’s daughter, Lori Harvey. Signed with modeling agency IMG, Amelia’s very first fashion show was opening for Dennis Basso’s spring/summer collection during New York Fashion Week, and Amelia and Lisa were equally excited.
Delilah, aka the older sister, is a recent transplant to New York City because she’s a student at NYU (studying criminal psychology, FYI). But when she’s not hitting the books, she’s certainly hitting the runway. Her first show was Tommy x Gigi (aka the capsule collection that Gigi Hadid designed for Tommy Hilfiger) at the 2016 New York Fashion Week, and just like with Amelia, Lisa and family were on hand to celebrate this big step in Delilah’s career.
She also walked alongside Amelia for Dolce & Gabbana, and she’s the face of Botkier’s latest campaign for their high-fashion accessories. Besides being one of the faces of Good American jeans and having appeared in editorials and ads over a variety of different publications, Delilah also graced billboards and magazine pages with Amelia for Stuart Weitzman.
High fashion is fun, but what about high exposure? Amelia is also in the running to be in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, which would put her in front of millions of magazine subscribers and online viewers across the world. That’s pretty cool, too.
This meteoric rise to the top could be a lot for any young person to handle, but it seems like the Hamlin sisters have a good foundation and good heads on their respective shoulders. In an interview with Town & Country, Delilah said that her parents are the sisters’ greatest influence, as “they’ve taught us the concept of hard work.” Amelia added that Lisa and Harry have taught them that “hard work pays off and that good things shouldn’t come easily.” Of what she wants to do in the future, Amelia said, “I'm interested in how society portrays women. I want to be an advocate for loving yourself.”
Besides the fact that they’re jet setting around the world and landing magazine covers, Amelia and Delilah seem pretty normal. A trip through both of their Instagram accounts show two sisters who like to hang out with their friends and, as many women their age do, snap a whole lot of selfies.
They spend plenty of time as a family, too.
Of course, a model sister duo will always drum up comparisons to Gigi and Bella Hadid, but Amelia and Delilah don't see it that way. Amelia told TMZ that there's "no competition" between the Hamlins and the Hadids and they're both off doing their own things. "We'll see where it takes us" was their refrain, and so far, it seems like the sky is the limit for the Hamlin sisters.
