Who Is Delilah Hamlin? New Details About The Breakout Star Model Of NYFW

The world of fashion, as Heidi Klum and Karlie Kloss say, is a tough business. One day, you're in, the next you're out. Sorry for opening with a line from Project Runway, but like Tim Gunn always (never) says, if it ain't broke!

While the world of fashion is definitely cutthroat for fashion designers who panic every season about staying relevant while still being true to themselves, it is also true of the women and men who model their designs. One day you think you've seen the same model everywhere, the next day she's gone, and another big-eyed beauty steps into her place to strut her stuff. 

Delilah Belle Hamlin has been proclaimed that modeling's world's next Gigi Hadid, and given her standout looks at this year's New York Fashion Week, it's easy to see why. You might not have heard about Delilah before today but mark my words, you'll be seeing her everywhere in the next couple of months — and only more from there. This young model's fresh face and her killer threads aren't the only things that distinguish her from the rest of the pack, either. 

As you'll soon read, Delilah's story has Hollywood written all over it. Be the first person in your friend group to know everything there is to know about this rising star. You'll soon find out that she's more than just a pretty face. She's well-connected and comes from a long line of show biz professionals and tried and true hustlers, baby! Who is Delilah Hamlin?

1. Fashion Week Splash

Who is that girl? That was the question on everyone's lip in New York this week — and for very good reason: You see, Delilah Belle Hamlin was in New York and no one could stop talking about it. Although she just turned 20, Delilah has been hustling in the model world (with familial encouragement) for a couple of years now. She's already walked in shows and has been featured in print ads. 

But this year at New York Fashion Week she wasn't walking the runways, she was scoping them out, being frequently photographed as she took her rightful place at any fashion show: right in the front row. Could she have potentially been getting ready to strut her stuff in next year's events? Stranger things have happened! 

2. Rising Star 

Like I said, if you haven't herd of Delilah until now, that's all going to change, and probably pretty darn quickly.

Delilah signed with One Management, an impressive firm that boasts names like Cardi B and Nick Jonas to name just a very few. It's clear they have been big things planned for her. Could it be that modeling is only the beginning? It wouldn't be surprising.

3. Real Housewives Roots 

A lot of comparisons are made between Delilah Hamlin and supermodel of the moment, Gigi Hadid. It's easy to see why, too. Not only are these blonde, tall women California born and raised, but they have something else in common that might surprise some people. 

Delilah's mother is the actress and entrepreneur Lisa Rinna. When Lisa took a starring role in Bravo's The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Delilah wasn't shy about making the odd appearance on her mother's new TV show. This was also the case for Gigi, whose mother, former model Yolanda Foster, was also previously a cast member on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills until she left the show to focus on her battle with Lyme Disease.

Some people say that being on reality TV ruins your career but it looks like the exact opposite is happening for these two women! 

4. Daddy's Little Girl 

I've already mentioned that Delilah's mom is the legendary hustler Lisa Rinna, but that isn't where her connections to Hollywood's elite start and stop.

Delilah's father (and Lisa's beloved hubby) is the actor Harry Hamlin, a former sex symbol and, if I might add, still a nice piece of beefcake! 

Combined, her parents have decades of experience in the show business industry, and both even spent time modeling, too. So they should be able to give their little girl all of the advice that she needs to help send her in the right direction with a good head on her shoulders about the ups and downs of the biz.

5. Serious Big Sister 

Delilah's got another thing in common with Gigi Hadid, too: they're both big sisters to young sisters who are also looking for their place to shine in the modeling world. For Gigi, that would be Bella Hadid, and for Delilah, it's baby sister 17-year-old Amelia Hamlin. 

Luckily, it doesn't look like these two waste much of their time competing with one another. In fact, this dynamic duo has even taken time to do campaigns together! Talk about siblings who work well together and play well together too!
