Heidi Klum’s daughter Leni continued to channel her mother’s modeling prowess as she posed in her latest campaign for sportswear band Fila this week.
The ‘nepo baby’, 18, looked casually cool in a white sweater, slim fit joggers and sneakers, teamed with a matching handbag as she posed on a car.
The fashionista wore her tresses in soft waves and sported a radiant palette of make-up.
Sharing the post, she wrote:’I did it again. I am so happy to tell you that my second campaign with FILA is launching today exclusively at @deichmann_schuhe.
‘Look out for my favorite sneaker styles, apparel, accessories and bags. Super comfy and easy to combine pieces – hope you love them as much as I do

On the personal front, Leni is in the midst of a longtime relationship with 19-year-old Ari Rachevsky, whom she has described as ‘my favorite person.’
Aris, who has reportedly enrolled at Harvard, is the son of Los Angeles talent agent Rhea Rachevsky, according to W magazine.
Although Aris and Leni are said to have been dating for three years, they are assiduously private and he rarely appears on her Instagram.
Leni’s latest Instagram update came a few months after the showbiz legacy responded to allegations she is a ‘nepo baby.’
‘It’s just a fact. My parents are famous,’ said Leni, who was adopted by her mother’s ex-husband Seal during the marriage.
However she insisted to People magazine that she is ‘doing the work and putting in the time’ to carve out a career for herself.
‘I did get help starting off, and I know that people would dream of starting off with what I had,’ said Leni, who walked for Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week in July with her mother proudly filming her from the audience.
‘I’m so grateful that I’ve been able to take what was gifted to me by my mom. But I am doing the work and putting in the time,’ she maintained.
‘Now I’m working on my own, traveling alone, going to school. My mom and I just have the same love for the same thing.’
Leni is one of a massive glut of rising new starlets with famous parents, from Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp to Andie MacDowell’s daughter Margaret Qualley.
Maya Hawke, whose parents are Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, and Kaia Gerber, whose mother is Cindy Crawford, have shot to fame in recent years as well.
Meanwhile: Leni derived from Heidi’s previous relationship with Italian businessman Flavio Briatore, but in 2009 Seal legally adopted her as well; Heidi and Flavio are pictured in 2003

Madonna’s daughter Lourdes Leon, Judd Apatow’s daughter Maude Apatow and Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough are also coming up, among others.
Leni made her modeling debut at the age of 16 with her mother on the cover of Vogue Germany – a publication out of Heidi’s native country.
Heidi and Seal were married from 2005 to 2014 and they welcomed three children together biologically – Henry, 17, Johan, 16, and Lou, 13.
