Gender politics at NYFW? Older models at Simone Rocha? If there’s one tagline to take away from Fashion Month already it's Diversity Rules.

Dolce & Gabbana mixed things up in the casting department too, enlisting the help of next-gen YouTube stars, singers, designers and bloggers to model its glamourous AW17 collection during Milan Fashion Week (ranging in ages, ethnicities and sizes).

The Crown-effect reached its way onto the runway as British aristocrats (Lady Amelia Windsor and Princess Diana’s niece, Lady Kitty Spencer) made their catwalk debuts at D&G. And in keeping with the Italian label's focus on family (often casting mothers, toddlers, and young children) celebrity off-spring had their time in the spotlight – including Jamie Foxx’s daughter Corinne, 16-year-old Anais Gallagher and cool kids Gabriele Kane Day-Lewis (Damien Lewis’ son) and Rafferty Law (no description of parentage needed).

Here’s our pick of the best new D&G runway recruits…

Lady Kitty Spencer

Princess Diana’s 26-year-old niece (the eldest daughter of Diana's brother, Charles Spencer) aptly wore an ornate tiara and gold dress on the D&G runway.

Pixie Lott

The singer looked like a Cinderella IRL in this diamond dress and tiara combo. With her Prince Charming: fiancé and model Oliver Cheshire.

Lady Amelia Windsor

21-year old Edinburgh university student (who also happens to be 36th in line to the throne), is the new royal face to follow, stat.

Yellow suiting is on our wish-list for autumn, thanks to Jamie Foxx’s 21-year-old daughter and USC student, Corinne.

Aimee Song

The fashion blogger and YouTuber you will have no doubt spotted on a street style round up near you. With 4 million Instagram followers and counting it appears social media stars are giving supermodels a run for their money.

Madison Beer

Watch this face - Justin Bieber’s protégé is fast becoming a star in her own right. The 17-year-old has been posting cover songs on her YouTube channel for years and her debut album is slated for release later this year.
