Supermodel Elle Macpherson Poses With Her Lookalike Sons for "Elle"

The supermodel called shooting the cover together a "momentous" occasion for her family.

Elle Macpherson isn't the only member of her family to take the world of fashion by storm. The supermodel recently landed the cover of Elle France with her two sons, Flynn and Cy Busson, 22 and 17 respectively.

The cover shoot was a full-circle moment for Macpherson; the image of the family was captured by famed photographer Gilles Bensimon, who had shot Macpherson for the French magazine nearly four decades prior.

Shooting the Elle France cover, which was subsequently posted by both Macpherson and her sons to Instagram, was a "momentous" occasion, according to the supermodel.

"The release of this image, an homage to family with our sons @cyfly08 @cybusson is momentous," Macpherson captioned her pic of the cover. "Not because it's the cover of an iconic magazine, but because it's a celebration of long lasting evolving relationships, friendships, family, love, and life."

While the Elle France cover may represent a major milestone for Macpherson and her sons, it isn't the first time they've joined forces in front of the camera.

In 2019, Elle and her sons graced the cover of Vogue Australia together, an experience Flynn described as "such a privilege." And for more celebrity kids making waves in the fashion world, see how much Madonna's Daughter Lourdes Looks Just Like Her in New Ads.

Flynn is currently represented by top modeling agency IMG Models, while Cy is represented by Next Models Miami and has posed for Kenzo print campaigns.

While both of Macpherson's sons have burgeoning modeling careers, the supermodel has been just as supportive of their academic achievements. In 2020, Macpherson had nothing but praise for Flynn as he graduated from college.

"Congratulations on your brilliant academic life. It seems only yesterday you were this young boy or the teenager graduating high school," Macpherson captioned a throwback photo of Flynn at his high school graduation. "We are so proud of the man you've become and how you've evolved and adjusted to life's twists and turns and flourished with humor, grace and elegance."
