All Hail Sistine Stallone

In a world of celebrity offspring-turned-models, the daughter of Sylvester Stallone is poised to break out of the pack

Even as our shoot wraps up at 5 p.m.—after a very early call time—Sistine Stallone is filled with energy. And the 19-year-old model, daughter of actor Sylvester Stallone[1] and model Jennifer Flavin, has reason to be excited. Just days before, she had moved to New York City to focus on her modeling career, already with a few major milestones under her belt including an appearance in LOVE[2]’s Advent Calendar along with Kendall Jenner[3], Gigi Hadid[4], Emily Ratajkowski and countless other powerhouse names.

Despite her upbringing in the entertainment industry, Stallone isn’t the kind of girl who leaves the house in a full face of makeup or hits all the latest boutique workout classes. She finds workout routines on Instagram and admits she still gets nervous on the red carpet[5]. Although she has learned one major takeaway from growing up in front of the camera: “I should’ve never agreed to do matching dresses with my sisters on those red carpets,” she laughs.

As for what’s next in 2018, she says eagerly, “I don’t know, but I hope it’s my year. I want to do more runway. I’d love to see Victoria’s Secret again at the end of the year. I’m trying to have a few goals in mind.” As Stallone navigates what is sure to be a major year in her career, she plans to keep in mind her model mother’s biggest piece of advice: “‘Be kind to everyone.’ It’s so much easier to be nice to people,” says Stallone. “People don’t forget.”
