Of all emerging celebs, Sistine Stallone looks like she’s ready to knock people out — literally. More than just a fabulous fashionista, she can melt hearts and pack a punch while she’s at it.
“I don’t box,” Sistine clarified in an interview with Teen Vogue, “but he’s taught me how to throw a punch!” He, of course, refers to her Hollywood heavyweight father, Sylvester Stallone. You wouldn’t exactly expect the offspring of Rocky a.k.a. Rambo to end up in the fashion industry, but Sistine has high-caliber showbiz genes on both sides of her family. Her mother, Jennifer Flavin, will be remembered as one of the best supermodels to come out of the 1990s.
Sistine has her sights set on modeling and she’s well on her way. She’s walked for Dolce & Gabbana and she’s also been spotted in Chanel’s lineup. With her mom’s physique and more than a bit of her dad’s don’t-mess-with-me attitude, she leaves a memorable presence at any event she attends.
That includes last year’s Golden Globes and Oscars, where her dad was the talk of the town for his comeback role as Rocky in Creed. Sistine and her sisters made a splash accompanying their parents to Hollywood’s biggest bashes, dressed to the nines and radiating charm.
In everyday life, Sistine describes her personal style as “chic but fun and comfortable,” and cites Shay Mitchell as her style icon. In interviews, she’s acknowledged her gratitude to her parents, especially her mom for her modeling expertise. “She taught me my good side, my bad side, how to walk for the runway, and how to become someone else in a certain outfit.”
And in that sense, her dad’s acting skills play an important role, too. “Modeling is basically acting,” Sistine added, “changing personalities. You don’t want to be yourself.” Fashionable food for thought from one of entertainment’s freshest and most promising faces. — jas
