She's the face of one major designer's pre-fall 2021 campaign.
Paul Walker gained international fame with his role in the Fast & Furious franchise. And while his star-studded career came to an end after his tragic death in 2013, it seems that another Walker name may be making it big. The late actor's daughter Meadow Walker just landed her first major modeling gig with designer Proenza Schouler.

The 22-year-old model revealed Jan. 11 on Instagram that she's starring in Proenza Schouler's Pre-Fall 2021 campaign. Meadow posted two campaign photos, one with her in a black, flared-leg pantsuit and the other of her in a brown leather dress.
"I am so unbelievably grateful to everyone who has supported me and believed in me," Meadow wrote in the caption, thanking Proenza Schouler designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez as well.
Meadow also thanked modeling agency DNA Models in her caption, calling them her "family." It appears as if the agency, which also reps major names like Kaia Gerber and Emily Ratajkowski, has just signed the up-and-comer. The DNA Models' Instagram posted a series of photos of Meadow on Jan. 11 with the caption, "Now Representing."
And while this appears to be model's first major gig, it wasn't her first step into the modeling world. Refinery29 reported on Meadow's modeling career in 2017. According to the outlet, she had been signed with Women Management at the time, but never made an official modeling debut with the agency.
