Die Antwoord's daughter steals the spotlight at New York Fashion Week


Front-row seats at New York Fashion Week are Hollywood's Holy Grail – and Sixteen Jones has one of them. Daughter of SA rap duo Die Antwoord was snapped front and centre at the uber-trendy Alexander Wang Spring 2016 show. Dressed all in white, Sixteen sat perched next to her controversy-causing dad, Ninja for the spectacle. She even adopted her mom Yolandi Vi$$er's trademark white eye make-up.

"It was "A Zef Debutante's Ball", W24 aptly dubbed it, "And boy, did they lap her right up."

They certainly did! Even Vogue approved of the fresh-faced youngster's look. "Where her mother’s all-white looks tend to skew otherworldly, Jones, who was seated alongside her father for the show, put a decidedly wearable spin on the look, which she paired with Wang-worthy details: a slick low bun, a sheer oversize tee, and an otherwise bare face," columnist Calvin Paris wrote for the fashion bible's website. "Consider this the first glimpse of a front-row-star in the making—the next cool girl addition to the #wangsquad." A cool and collected Sixteen, who occasionally appears in Die Antwoord videos, including the one for "I Fink U Freeky", also featured in a photo on Die Antwoord's Instagram page with DJ Skrillex.

In another shot posted by her dad on Instagram, Sixteen perfectly mimics Ninja's snarl. The proud pappa captioned the photo with a heart.

It turns out Sixteen, who appeared with her parents on the cover of Rolling Stone in 2012, is a regular on her dad's Instagram page -- a real daddy's girl?
