Shaq's Son Is a Model on the Rise [Pret-a-Reporter Inbox]
There are so many celeb spawn models in Dolce & Gabbana's #DGMillennial squad that we almost missed a big one: Myles B. O'Neal, son of Shaquille O'Neal (you may know Shaq as the star of the 1996 classic, Kazaam). Myles not only walked in Dolce & Gabbana's June menswear presentation in Milan alongside Dylan Brosnan (son of Pierce) and Tyler Clinton (nephew of Bill and Hillary), but also made an appearance on the runway for the New York-based label Descendant of Thieves, which showed its fall collection on Monday at New York Fashion Week: Men's. Young Myles also has a burgeoning rap career, and before you ask, no, he doesn't play basketball.
