You might not expect Sistine Stallone, the middle daughter of Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Flavin, to be easily starstruck. But last December, when the now 19-year-old model was introduced to Karl Lagerfeld at a fitting for the Chanel pre-fall show, in Paris—her first runway gig—it was, she gushes, “better than meeting your idol or your favorite actress or celebrity. I didn’t think he was a real person until I saw him moving and breathing!”
Indeed, beyond a few red-carpet moments at her father’s Rocky and Rambo premieres, the young Stallone had, by Hollywood standards, anyway, a normal childhood. She and her sisters—and fellow Miss Golden Globes—Sophia and Scarlet, learned to play golf practically in diapers; their dad also encouraged family Western-riding competitions and boxing lessons. When, at age 15, Sistine decided to pursue modeling (inspired by years of perusing her mother’s portfolios from her own modeling days), he was similarly hands-on. “He shows up at my shoots and picks up lunch. He’s like a soccer dad for me,” says Stallone, who has walked for Dolce & Gabbana and appeared in Love magazine’s racy 2016 Advent calendar. And though she professes zero interest in acting, her father’s influence is evident. “With modeling, you become someone else when you put on an outfit. You’re transforming yourself.”
