This year’s London Fashion Week is wrapping up, but the buzz surrounding one of its runway models is just getting started. On Sunday, Pierce Brosnan cheered on his lookalike son, Paris, as he walked in the charity Fashion for Relief show — and, wow, the 18-year-old really looks like a mirror image of his dad around the same age. Also: How sweet is it that Pierce was there to support his kid?
In the show, Pierce played the part of proud papa by shooting video and posing for pictures with his son. In one photo shared to his Instagram Stories over the weekend, Pierce wrote, “You look around and they’re all grown up!” alongside a photo of himself with his son. “The Beauty of life. Night out at the British Museum for Naomi Campbell’s” Fashion for Relief, he added. During the show, Paris wore a brown suede Chrome Hearts suit as he walked alongside Stella Maxwell. But prior to storming the catwalk, he twinned on the red carpet with Pierce in very James-Bond-esque black tuxedos.
Fashion for Relief, a show created by Campbell to raise funds for environmental and humanitarian causes, is a natural fit for Paris. The budding filmmaker is proving to be quite the activist. In 2018, he wrote, directed and produced the video “Your Voice Matters” to encourage young people to vote. Earlier this year, he traveled to Sri Lanka and created a short film to combat childhood hunger in the area.

Not surprisingly, Paris isn’t the only model in the Brosnan family. His older brother Dylan, 22, also models (in addition to being an actor, singer and cinematographer). Dylan has been featured in high-fashion publications such as Vogue, and in upscale designer campaigns including Burberry.
So, when we say good genes run in the family, we mean it in more ways than one. And in case you need a more visual demonstration of just how strong Pierce’s genes are, behold this side-by-side of Paris and a younger Pierce.
The signature half-smile, those piercing (sorry, couldn’t help it) eyes — the apple definitely didn’t fall far from the tree.
