Liz Hurley's son Damian, 17, is basically her doppelganger in make-up campaign

Liz Hurley’s genes are not only amazing and apparently the source of eternal youth, but they’re seriously strong.

Just look at her son Damian, who has inherited Liz’s looks, hair and smoulder at the tender age of 17.

The teenager appears in a new campaign video for make-up artist extraordinaire Pat McGrath as one of her muses, alongside models including Violet Chachki, Sonjdra Deluxe and Primrose Archer, and he is totally slaying it.

Pat labelled Damian ‘skinspiring’ as he modelled her Sublime Perfection primer and foundation in a video directed by Steven Meisel.

In the gag-worthy video, Damian is seen rocking a bouffant hairdo and batting his eyelashes seductively while wearing a white tee and leather jacket.

The budding model, who is the only child of Liz and her ex Steve Bing, is signed to the same modelling agency, Tess Management, as his actress mother, and it looks like he’ll be following in her footsteps.

Liz, 54, and Damian are very close, having starred in various photo shoots together as well as the teen appearing with his mum in the E! series The Royals.

However, some have questioned whether they are too close, following a comment Liz previously made about her son taking her bikini pics for her.

Liz said on Watch What Happens Live in 2018: ‘Here’s the thing, he doesn’t take all my bikini photos, by the way. Some of them are professional, some of them are my sister, anybody who I can get.


‘When we’re on holiday together, sure he’ll take some pictures. And you know, he’s got a really good eye and he’s studying photography and it’s ridiculous.’

However, she later blasted the claims as ‘utter nonsense’, telling the Mail’s You magazine: ‘He took one or two shots ages ago and that was it. He’s at boarding school, for heaven’s sake.

‘I can assure you I do not drag him to Mauritius every weekend to take my picture. Damian is a great photographer, and he instinctively knows what younger people want to see, but that’s all.’

She added: ‘Given I’m a single mother and he’s an only child, by default we spend a lot of time together and we are utterly comfortable in each other’s company.’

And while Damian is having his own modelling moment, his mother is more than holding her own in the Instagram stakes.
