NAPOLEON Perdis’s teenage daughters are ready for the spotlight, fronting a shoot together for the first time. But it’s not for their father’s famous beauty business.
Lianna, 17, and 15-year-old triplets Alexia, Angelene and Athina appear in fashion chain Supre’s new season sleepwear campaign.
It’s the first time the sisters — who are touted as the future of their father’s makeup empire — have worked together, Kardashian-style.
“We’re best friends, honestly,” Lianna said. “We’re close in age and we’re like a little girl gang.”
Lianna has the most modelling experience of the family, having been on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Greece this year and is the face of Napoleon’s Total Bae makeup collection (the family is now based in Greece, and travel back and forth to Sydney).
So what advice has her dad given her?
“You have to be confident with who you are,” Lianna said. “Be yourself! And if other people don’t like you, that’s bad for them.”
Lianna has worked alongside her dad on his youth-focused line, Total Bae, of which she is the face.
“It’s kind if like my jump into the business,” Lianna said. “I was more on the side of product development and campaigns and ads.”
Lianna said she gave her younger sisters some tips for posing in front of the camera for Supre’s sleepwear shoot.
“They’re pretty confident … sometimes, I help them out because I’ve had a tiny bit more experience than them,” she laughed.
“We’re just like down the hallway in our house, making that a catwalk. When we were little girls, we used to steal our mum’s heels.”
Lianna has nearly 70,000 followers on Instagram but says she isn’t chasing Insta-fame.
“I don’t want to idolise and copy someone else, whatever I am is what I am,” she said.
“If you like me, awesome, if you don’t like me, that’s good for you. I don’t really try to like make myself like someone else.”
And with Napoleon Perdis as her dad, does that mean he’s on call to do her makeup?
“Unfortunately, my dad can’t do my makeup all the time,” she laughed.
“I’ve gone to the makeup academy and I’ve learnt how to do it myself.”
