'99% of my inspiration comes from him, because he has always been my world': Paris Jackson, 18, pays tribute to her father Michael as she poses on the cover of CR Fashion Book
- Paris is one of several famous faces to have been given their own cover of the magazine's tenth issue
- Inside the publication, she talks about her famous father, revealing she won't follow in his career footsteps, modeling, acting, and her social activism
- For this issue, Carine Roitfeld's high-fashion magazine has a Parisian theme
- Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss, Lara Stone, and Carine herself are also on covers of the issue
Paris Jackson has scored her very first fashion magazine cover, and she shares the honor with some of the biggest names in the business.
The 18-year-old appears on the front of Issue 10 of Carine's Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book — one of several high-fashion covers that also star Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Karlie Kloss and Lara Stone.
Inside, the A-list offspring opens up about her famous dad, her politics, and her career aspirations — which don't involve following in Michael's footsteps.
Big gig: Paris Jackson covers one edition of the latest issue of CR Fashion Book
Model game: This is Paris' first fashion magazine cover, shot by Mario Sorrenti
In her stunning cover image, shot by Mario Sorrenti, Paris poses in a ruffled cerulean Gucci dress that brings out her bright blue eyes.
She wears red lipstick and a matching shade on her talon-like nails, and the tattoos that snake up her arm are on full display.
Speaking to the magazine, Paris says that she's pursuing modeling right now and hopes to try her hand at acting in a few years — but she doesn't expect to take up a music career like her dad.
That isn't to say she hasn't inherited his talent, but she prefers to keep that side of herself private.
Getting in the game: Paris, 18, has started modeling and hopes to pursue acting one day
Paris has been turning up at fashion shows (here at the Givenchy Menswear Fall/Winter 2017-2018 show)
'I write music for myself,' she said, adding that she's in a 'kind of like folk' band with her boyfriend that's a cross between Johnny Cash and the Lumineers. 'I use it as a way to get stuff out. It's not something I see myself following career-wise. There are so many amazing artists in my family. If I were to do it as a career, it would change how I feel about music and I don’t want that to happen.'
She even shared a sample lyric with the magazine, which her interviewer, movie giant Lee Daniels, commented was pretty dark: 'Your ice cold words like bony fingers around my neck like a skeleton.'
'Hey, my dad didn’t raise me listening to the Top 40,' Paris said. She spent time remembering her dad, too, calling him 'the strongest person I know'.
'[He] tried to do everything with as much love and kindness as possible,' she said. 'All of my inspiration, I would say 99 percent of my inspiration, comes from him, because he has always been my world. He is my roots.'
She said she likes to play music but doesn't plan to make a career out of it
It seems that the Heal the World singer also gave her a sense of social justice. Paris spoke about being 'very against animal cruelty' and not liking to own fur — though she doesn't hate others who do — and getting a tattoo designed by a Sioux tribe activist on her ankle in support of Standing Rock.
'I think right now a lot of people are really, really angry,' she said, sharing her thoughts on the political climate in general. 'And there are two ways that things can go: it can go really bad, or we'll see that the "man," the government, is not doing what it's supposed to do, and we'll take it in our own hands. Millennials, people my age, we're going to run the country in the next few years. We can make this country what we want it to be.
'I'm hoping that this year my generation will get to a point where we will rise up, not in a violent way, but start pushing for more liberalism. This happened with same-sex marriage. We pushed so hard for equality and it happened.'
Newcomer Halima Aden, who walked in Kanye West's Yeezy Season 5 show, also has a cover
Saucy! Bella and Gigi Hadid also posed for the cover of Issue 10 of CR Fashion Book
Also covering another version of the issue is newcomer Halima Aden, who walked in Kanye West's Yeezy Season 5 show. She recently signed with IMG and wears a hijab in all of her shots.
'Never thought I would see the day that a woman dressed like me would graze the cover of a fashion magazine,' she wrote on Instagram, accompanying a post with her cover. 'Thank you SO much @carineroitfeld and my new @crfashionbook family for giving me the opportunity to feel represented in the most beautiful way.'
Other editions are fronted Gigi and Bella Hadid, who were also shot by photographer Mario Sorrenti.
Carine has made clear she's a big fan of the Hadid sisters, and has spotlighted them in her magazine on several occasions. In fact, Gigi's Issue 10 cover is her third, and the sisters are the only models to have covered multiple issues.
Star-studded! The covers, which were shot in Paris, also include an image of Karlie Kloss
In fact, Gigi, 21, credits Carine for helping to make her career what it is, calling the editor her 'unequivocal mentor' and saying that her first CR Fashion Book cover 'changed my life'.
Carine has spoken about first seeing something special in Gigi, telling The Daily Fornt Row: 'Gigi is a beautiful person on the outside and the inside too. She is a warm and kind-hearted soul. When Stephen Gan introduced her to me, we jointly sent her to see Bruce Weber, we knew she was a star about to be born.'
This time around, Gigi poses in a sheer black turtleneck over a balconette bra and underwear. Her hair is up, showing off dangling cross earrings.
'Four years strong with my @crfashionbook family,' she wrote on Instagram. 'Forever grateful to you @carineroitfeld.'
Center stage: Editor Carine Roitfeld stars on the front of an issue herself
Her younger sister Bella, 22, who was also shot by Mario Sorrenti, shared how thrilled she was on Instagram as well. Wearing a black Louis Vuitton number that spotlights plenty of underboob, the star is accessorized with gold jewelry and wears her hair in a high pony, styled by Akki Shirakawa.
In addition to Carine's own cover — in which the editor is pictured in Paris, facing away from the camera — supermodel Karlie Kloss also graces her own issue.
The 24-year-old was shot by Rory van Millingen and wears a black skirt suit and '80s mules. Her hair is dark for the occasion, styled in a short, shaggy cut.
Models Stella Lucia, Liu Wen, Amina Blue, and Jordan Barrett also appear within the issues pages, as does photography by Karl Lagerfeld. A separate men's issue includes Gucci Mane, The Crown's Matt Smith, actor Michael Shannon, and the UFC's Stephen 'Wonderboy' Thompson.
