The 19-year-old signed with DT Model Management, which also represents Sean Penn and Robin Wright’s daughter.
Destry Allyn Spielberg, the youngest daughter of Steven Spielberg and actress Kate Capshaw, is officially in the modeling business.
The 19-year-old USC student signed with DT Model Management, the same agency that represents Paris Hilton; Alec Baldwin’s daughter, Ireland; and Dylan Penn, the daughter of Sean Penn and Robin Wright.
According to the West Hollywood agency’s roster, Destry Allyn (she dropped “Spielberg” for her profile) is 5-foot-7, which makes her on the shorter side of the profession, with blue eyes and blond hair.
Spielberg joins the growing cadre of name-recognizable Hollywood offspring taking over the modeling game, including Jaden and Willow Smith (children of Will and Jada Pinkett Smith), Kaia and Presley Gerber (children of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber), Lily-Rose Depp (daughter of Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp), Rafferty and Iris Law (children of Jude Law), Gabriel Kane Day-Lewis (son of Daniel Day-Lewis) and, of course, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid, whose families both launched into stardom on reality TV.
Destry Allyn is used to being surrounded by the high-profile progeny of her father’s peers. As a competitive horse rider, she faced the likes of Jessica Springsteen (daughter of Bruce Springsteen), Eve Jobs (daughter of Steve Jobs) and Jennifer Gates (daughter of Bill Gates). Daddy Spielberg has noted that Destry’s love of horses actually inspired him to make the movie War Horse.
Though she’s new to the modeling world, Destry Allyn is no stranger to the step-and-repeat. Not only has she accompanied her father on several red carpets (including the War Horse premiere and the 2011 Oscars), she’s been on the fashion scene of late, attending Diane Von Furstenberg’s celebration of new designer Jonathan Saunders in L.A. last week, as well as the opening party for What Goes Around Comes Around’s new Beverly Hills outpost. For the grand opening of their new L.A. store, Ralph Lauren dressed the teen in a sleek black suit.
Aside from her horse hobby and, you know, being the daughter of one of the most prolific directors of our time, Destry Allyn appears to be your regular fancy teen, posting photos of herself prepping for Cannes (wearing a Nasty Gal tutu), enjoying the beach in an impressive number of bikinis, trying on designer gowns and shoes (by Cushnie et Ochs and Stella McCartney, to name a few) as well as posting plenty of selfies for her 11K Instagram followers.
