They’re young, talented and on their way up – these faces are about to make it big…
What? The teen dream…
Who? Ella Purnell
She may have bagged roles in the past playing a young Kiera Knightley and a teenage Angelina Jolie – but London-born Ella, 19, is set to break out on her own this year in a way. With two upcoming blockbusters (she’s starring in Tim Burton’s latest movie Miss Peregrine Home For Peculiar Children and playing young Jane in Tarzan), BFFs like Chloë Moretz to call on and that pout? Get ready for your close-up…
What? Future movie star
Who? Jessie Usher
The next Will Smith? Look no further. Jessie, 23, is the hot new actor taking on the lead in the epic Independence Day remake next year (10-years after Mr Smith starred in the original). We’ve got a feeling he can take the heat…
What? The new Ed Sheeran
Who? Jack Garrett
Calling all Ed Sheeran fans! This 24-year old newcomer has fast won over fans from Katy Perry to Sia with his distinctive mash up of soul and electro-pop (Ellie Goulding even covered his uber-addictive single Weathered). With the Brits Critics Choice award in the bag and gearing up for his debut album in February, this is going to be one very busy year…
What? Pop sensation
The 19-year old hit headlines when she covered the Oasis song Half The World Away for the John Lewis Christmas and released a well-received EP– seriously, Katy Perry is a fan and even tweeted about it – in 2015 but now it’s all about her debut album due out in Spring. We love her haunting vocals and we predict big things for this Norwegian lady.
What? Supermodel royalty
Who? Kaia Gerber
You’ve just signed a major modelling deal. About to make your film debut in indie drama Sister Cities. Oh, and you’re mum is Cindy Crawford. Yup, Kaia’s not doing too bad compared to the average 14-year old. Watch out Cinds, your doppelganger daughter’s set to steal your supermodel crown!
What? Gigi and Bella’s bro
Who? Anwar Hadid
Three’s a crowd is obvs not a saying in the Hadid household. While Gigi, 20, and Bella,19, have been ruling the catwalk this year it seems their lil’ bro Anwar, 16, wants in on the modelling action too, since scoring his first big photo shoot. With those looks and sister support we’re sure will be seeing a lot more of him too.
What? Super-cool duo
Who? Lion Babe
Ages: 26 (Jillian Hervey), 27 (Lucas Goodman)
Make way for the hot new band to name-drop. The R&B duo is fronted by the uber-cool Jillian Hervey, 26 – whose rocking some serious 70s style and a mega mane (watch out Queen Bey). With tracks produced by Pharrell, their debut album is set to be the soundtrack of the summer.
