Elizabeth Hurley’s 17-year-old son Damian has followed in his mother’s footsteps by landing his first beauty campaign.
Damian, the son of Elizabeth and her ex Steve Bing, appears alongside other fledgling models such as Sonjdra Deluxe, Violet Chachki and Zhengyang Zhang in the video to promote Pat McGrath’s new make-up range, entitled Skin Fetish: Sublime Perfection The System, more than 20 years after his mother became the face of beauty brand Estee Lauder.
In the campaign, shot by legendary photographer and director Steven Meisel, Damian is seen wearing a giant brunette bouffant wig, reminiscent of his mother’s glamorous locks, while staring sultrily into the camera.
Damian, who signed to TESS Management in London last year, sports a white T-shirt and black leather jacket for the clip, while modelling McGrath’s Sublime Perfection primer, foundation and setting powder.
“A supermodel is born,” McGrath said to Vogue about the teenager. “It’s no surprise that as the offspring of the iconic Elizabeth Hurley, Damian is a bright, young, emerging star who has an absolutely magnetic personality, energy, and an exceptional look.”
The youngster was equally complimentary about the legendary make-up artist, and told the publication she had “truly changed the face of beauty, especially for my generation.”
He added, “To be captured through the lens of the incredible, legendary Steven Meisel was a truly phenomenal experience. I’ve long admired Steven’s fierce aesthetic and I’m so proud to be a part of this incredibly beautiful and disruptive campaign.”
McGrath’s new line will be available to buy from her website, as well as other select websites and stores, from 26 July.

Elizabeth Hurley introduces her teenage son’s clothes to her own wardrobe when he outgrows them.
The actress/model became a fashion icon after she accompanied her then-boyfriend Hugh Grant to the 1994 premiere of his film Four Weddings and a Funeral, wearing a black Versace dress held together with huge gold safety pins.
Elizabeth has since been renowned for her glamorous style, but confessed that it’s a whole different story in the comfort of her own home, where she often sports outfits courtesy of her 16-year-old son Damian, whom she shares with American businessman Steve Bing.
“I tend to wear Damian’s cast-offs. His 14/15-year-old trackie bottoms fit me perfectly,” the 53-year-old admitted in an interview with Britain’s You magazine, adding that she tends to ditch make-up and sweep her brunette locks away from her face when she’s at home.
This isn’t the first time Elizabeth has opened up about her casual home life in the countryside and previously explained to reporters at Grazia magazine that fans “wouldn’t recognise her” in a police line-up thanks to her vastly different look.
However, when it comes to her social media profile, The Royals star often poses in the sexy bikinis she sells through her eponymous swimwear label. And on top of stealing her son’s clothes, she also turns to Damian for design tips thanks to his fashion-forward eye.
“My son is incredibly supportive of me and my beachwear business and of me as an actor and the breadwinner of our family of two. I often show (the swimsuits) to him before I post them because he’s youth, he knows what people like,” she commented. “In fact, when he was little he used to try and persuade me to wear long couture dresses to parents’ evening, instead of my Uggs and tracksuit. No, he loved the glamour!”
