Amelia Gray Hamlin, Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin’s Model Daughter, Loves Wearing Bell Bottoms and Hates Crocs

The 16-year-old model talks about her sense of style, and new ad campaign.


After signing to IMG over the summer, Amelia Gray Hamlin, the 16-year-old daughter of actors Lisa Rinna and Harry Hamlin, has quickly made a name for herself in the modeling industry, nabbing jobs for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, CR Fashion Book, and Stuart Weitzman, just to name a few. Now, Hamlin has a new credit to add to her growing list: the new face of Hudson Jeans. Today, the denim brand announced that Hamlin is the face of their Spring 2018 campaign, marking the model’s first ready-to-wear campaign. Hamlin stars alongside fellow model Nathan Mitchell in the Sebastian Kim-lensed images, which debuted today. Here, Hamlin talks her favorite pairs of jeans, stealing vintage t-shirts from her mom, and why she really regrets wearing Crocs.

How would you describe your style in three words?

Unique, comfortable, chic.

How many pairs of jeans do you own?

I probably own 30 pairs of jeans, but I only wear two or three of them. My Hudson Flare Jeans are currently my favorite and most comfortable.

What is your favorite style of jeans right now?

I love the bell-bottoms so much. I think it’s cool to wear something that not everyone is wearing and you don’t see bell-bottoms too often. You can wear them with any top and shoe to be casual or dressy.

What kind of jeans would you never wear?

I rarely wear skinny jeans or a denim that is ‘plain.’ My jeans need to have a lot of character to them.

What trend are you sick of right now?

Leggings, t-shirt, and sneakers.

What is one thing you have stolen from your mom’s closet?

My mom has many t-shirts that I am obsessed with; they are graphic tees that have Madonna and similar icons on them. I do not think I’ve ever confessed this, but I am now.

What is one thing you have stolen from your sister’s closet?

I never steal anything from Delilah because we share all of our clothes!

Who do you think has great style?

I look up to my sister Delilah in how she always makes a cool, confident statement in her style. It’s always so effortless in anything she puts together.

What are you currently dying to buy, fashion wise?

The new Balenciaga trainers!

What is one trend that you think will never go out of style?

Baggy “mom jeans” and a white t-shirt.

What is one outfit that you’ve worn and regretted?

I saw a photo of myself wearing a brown t-shirt, green shorts and orange Crocs when I was maybe nine years-old. Sometimes my friends will send it to me if they see it for a giggle; it still haunts me to this day that I actually wore that.
