Those are some killer genes!

A seemingly familiar face with a very familiar last name has entered the modeling world — just as her supermodel relative marked a milestone birthday.

Lottie Moss, 16, made her debut in a spread for Britain's "Dazed" magazine on Thursday, as big sister Kate Moss, still one of the most famous models in the world, turned 40. While we hope Kate never retires, Lottie's photos prove she could be a possible successor to Kate's beauty throne.

Lottie, whose name is short for Charlotte, is Moss' half-sister, born to Kate’s dad Peter, a travel agent, and his second wife, Inger. Despite her famous relative, the high school student has lived a relatively normal life in Surrey, England, outside of London.

But that all changed in 2011, when photos of Lottie at Kate's wedding to Jamie Hince, which ran in Vogue magazine, caught the attention of talent scouts, according to Vogue U.K.

Lottie waited until this month — when she turned 16 — to sign with an agency, and in a nod to her big sister, chose Storm Model Management, the company that turned the elder Moss into a star. Storm’s founder, Sarah Doukas, discovered Kate when she was a teenager and is still one of her closest friends.

Lottie's spread in Dazed also carries a personal connection — Jefferson Hack, the founder and editorial director of the magazine, is Mott’s ex-boyfriend and the father of her daughter Lila, 11.

Like her big sister, who rarely does interviews, we don’t know a lot about Lottie. But the teen’s Twitter account does some give some clues about her personality — she thinks fellow celeb relative Romeo Beckham is cute, loves the movie "Breakfast at Tiffany’s," and has a picture of Marilyn Monroe as her page background. In a brief Q&A with Dazed, the 16-year-old said she loves sloths and confessed to not having read any of the "Harry Potter" books.

Still, it sounds like the 16-year-old is getting great advice from her big sister. Instead of quitting school to model full-time, Lottie is still focusing on her education and is currently studying for her A-level exams, which are the British equivalent of AP subject tests.

Good looks and a good head on her shoulders — girl has the potential to go very far.
