Sometimes, it can take a lot for someone to take the internet by storm. Amazingly, the most beautiful twins didn’t have to do too much to make a huge name for themselves – and they’ve come a long way over the years.
Caspar Lee, James Charles, Emma Chamberlin. What do they all have in common? They are some of the biggest influencers across the planet who have all made a name for themselves through social media. The internet is a funny place and something that some talented people have used to their advantage as they now have highly successful brands for themselves. That’s been the case for several influencers, who now have careers and companies to their name. Sometimes, it just takes being in the right place at the right time or having content that people need at the right moment. So what about the most beautiful twins in the world?
Leah and Ava Clements first hit the scene back in 2017 and have been at the top of their game ever since as the models have learned how to take the world of fashion by storm. That doesn’t mean that things have always been easy for the pair. In fact, the twins have had to face a lot throughout their time at the top, but it seems they have always come back stronger than ever. Believe it or not, but the most beautiful twins have come a long way since they first took the internet by storm.
Leah Rose and Ava Marie arrived unexpectedly into the world
Expecting one baby is usually an exciting time for parents. So what about when you learn there are twins on the way? Sure, it can seem like double-trouble at first, but it’s usually not long before parents learn about the fun that comes with welcoming two babies at once. That was the case for Jaqi Clements when she realized she was pregnant with twins.
However, it looks like the babies had plans of their own as Leah Rose and Ava Marie made an early appearance on July 7, 2010. The sisters were four-and-a-half weeks early, and many worried if they would have complications. Thankfully, both babies and mom were safe. Now that Jaqi knows her girls, she says it’s just like them to “show up early, unannounced.”
People instantly noticed the twins were pretty captivating
It usually doesn’t take long for parents to fall in love with their new arrivals. However, there was something different about Leah and Ava. They seemed to have hair softer than most adults and clear skin that made it look like they belonged on the cover of a magazine from the moment they were born.
Top all of this with the symmetry of their faces, and it wasn’t long before Leah and Ava were getting compliments from all kinds of people. It turned out that it wasn’t just Jaqi who noticed how captivating the twins were. There was just the problem of not knowing whether she should take this any further. Was there really a chance for Leah and Ava to be stars after all?
Getting into modeling wasn’t as easy as it sounded on paper
It turns out there was one thing people had in mind: modeling. They might have been young, but Jaqi was getting told almost every day that she should list her twins with an agent and turn them into superstars. It seemed that people thought they were more naturally beautiful than most other people on the planet.
Jaqi eventually gave in and found Leah and Ava an agent. However, there was yet another problem. The twins were six months old when they first had an agent, but Jaqi was already caring for a two-year-old, meaning she had very little time to work the extra career into her day. Jaqi knew that it just wasn’t doable, so Leah and Ava’s modeling adventure lasted six months before she threw in the towel.
Giving up on modeling was easier than trying to make it work
This mom knew that trying to raise children who had the potential to become modeling superstars was an exciting idea. However, everything seemed to be telling the family that it just wasn’t the right time. The hours disappeared before the trio even left the house, and juggling being a mom in between modeling shoots was proving to be all too much.
In the end, Jaqi decided that it would be best to raise Leah and Ava alongside children their own age instead of pushing them to do something that just wasn’t working. Thankfully, Jaqi didn’t have any regrets about pulling the twins out of modeling. That didn’t mean that a modeling career for Leah and Ava wasn’t always at the front of Jaqi’s mind.
Jaqi wanted to make sure everyone was on board with the idea of modeling
Having some time away from the lights and cameras also gave Jaqi some time to think about other aspects of the modeling career that could have been. The mom realized that she wasn’t ready to let it go, but she also didn’t want to be a parent who pushed her little ones to do things she didn’t want to do.
In the end, Jaqi decided that it would be best to hold off on the modeling career until Leah and Ava were old enough to have a say in it all. Of course, it wouldn’t have been the family’s journey if there weren’t a few problems along the way. This time, it was the fact that Leah and Ava were just toddlers and didn’t know how to make decisions.
A sign in the stars was enough to get the wheels rolling
Jaqi and her husband knew they would have to hold off on their plans of turning Leah and Ava into models until they were old enough to think about more than their favorite snack or TV show. Perhaps that’s why Jaqi was so impressed when she realized something could have been written in the stars all this time?
This mom says that her lucky number has always been number seven. It must have been a great day when Leah and Ava joined the world on 7/7. The best bit? The twins were quickly approaching their birthday on 7/7/2017. It looked as though everything was falling into place at last, and it wasn’t long before Jaqi’s mind started to race.
Leah and Ava’s seventh birthday was the perfect time to ask the twins
Growing up meant that Jaqi could learn all about the people Leah and Ava would turn into as adults. Apparently, it didn’t take long for the twins to fall for all kinds of extracurricular activities, including swimming and dance lessons. They were girls of many talents, but could one of those talents eventually be modeling?
That was something only time would tell – and something that the family would have to deal with together. Jaqi later confused that she asked Leah and Ava whether they would want to try modeling on their seventh birthday. She says she “presented my idea” to the twins, and “if they were up for it,” they could find a way to fit modeling around their busy schedules.
Everyone was excited about giving modeling another go
Thankfully, it seemed that Leah and Ava already had the makings of stars as Jaqi confessed they loved to perform for anyone and everyone. It didn’t matter if they were working on their dance routines or coming up with plays for the family, there was never a time they weren’t keeping everyone else entertained.
Amazingly, Jaqi had no idea where the twins got their love of performing, but it didn’t matter. All this mom needed to see was that her twins were more than excited to start work on their modeling careers. Jaqi says that as soon as she asked Leah and Ava about whether they wanted to be models, they “started jumping up and down and couldn’t wait to begin.”
It wasn’t long before Leah and Ava landed their first modeling job
Being older and making decisions for themselves meant that things should go a lot smoother for the family. After all, Leah and Ava could have more control over the kind of modeling they did and would hopefully cooperate more with their new schedules. It wasn’t long before the family got their first chance to try out the new career.
It turned out that one of Jaqi’s neighbors was looking at opening a boutique and wanted some child models to help get the latest business off the ground. Leah and Ava instantly landed the job. Thankfully, this worked well for everyone. Jaqi knew that getting the girl another agent would require new photos, so she figured signing up for the job would achieve two things at once.
Jaqi wanted to ensure Leah and Ava were comfortable in front of the camera
Just because Leah and Ava had the chance to get in front of the camera from the get-go didn’t mean that Jaqi wanted to push them into the new career. In fact, this mom wanted to take things slowly to ensure her twins weren’t altered too much when they stepped in front of the camera. Over-the-top outfits and excessive makeup were out of the question.
Instead, Jaqi thought it would be best to hold a practice photoshoot at home to see how they felt. She claims that she grabbed one of her old Nikon cameras that she kept in the garage and got Leah and Ava to head outside. Here, the trio experimented with a little blush while Jaqi added some soft waves to their hair.
Things were a little rocky during Leah and Ava’s first photoshoot
The family set about taking some photos to see how everyone felt about the new idea of modeling. However, they needed to ensure that things all went to plan. Even though Leah and Ava had always been complimented on their natural beauty, there was no guarantee that the twins would know how to work the camera like professionals.
Things often take time. This was something Jaqi was about to learn as soon as she started snapping pictures. Jaqi later confessed that Ava would be looking at the camera while Leah would be looking “into space.” Things got even more heated when “Leah would accidentally bump into Ava.” Apparently, that would be enough for Ava to shove her sister, and the pair would start fighting.
Jaqi needed to find a new agent for Leah and Ava after so many years
Although the sisters had a few wrinkles to iron out, they eventually learned how to work alongside one another – and with the camera. Jaqi helped the twins learn all they needed to know about what it was like to be in front of the camera and started work on finding her girls a new modeling agent.
However, she was worried that things would be challenging as it had been six years since Jaqi first found the girls a talent agent. Jaqi decided that it was best to start with “a handful of contacts” she still had in the address book. Amazingly, Jaqi quickly “heard back from almost every single one asking to set up a time to meet the girls.” Leah and Ava quickly landed two agents.
Having two agents caused a few issues for Leah and Ava
Perhaps you’re wondering why Jaqi decided to go with two agents for the girls? She confessed that she wanted them to have as many options as possible and decided that having a double team working with Leah and Ava gave them the best chance. However, having more than one agent quickly caused a few issues.
One agent called to say they had landed the twins an audition with Barbie in the morning. The problem? The twins had already been to the audition with the other agent the same day. Thankfully, all it took were a few phone calls and a couple of hours to get everything sorted out. All Jaqi needed to do was remain truthful with her agents about the double representation.
Jaqi initially didn’t know how to run Leah and Ava’s social media
One of the first things that Jaqi had to do was set up social media pages for the twins. However, she quickly admitted that she had no idea about how it all worked or if she was doing it right. Jaqi would promptly learn that Leah and Ava had plenty of fans across the globe. The page was a portfolio for the girls and a way to advertise their work, and it wasn’t long before it blew up.
Thankfully, Jaqi learned some things along the way as she continued to gain thousands of followers. Apparently, one of the biggest things she has learned is that pictures mean everything. This means Jaqi believes in investing in a professional photographer and not settling for an average snap.
2017 was set to become a massive year for the family
2017 was a huge year for the family as Leah and Ava set to work on their new modeling career. Plus, Jaqi had already been open about how she believed seven was always a lucky number for her and her family. The twins turned seven, and they almost instantly landed a modeling contract. Did she need any more proof than that?
However, it looked as though things weren’t through for the family as Jaqi knew there was more to come. She got all her answers when she learned that Chase, Leah and Ava’s older brother, also wanted to explore modeling. He was an instant hit after signing up to the same two agencies as his sisters. That wasn’t all. It turned out Chase also knew how to act.
Being a newbie in the modeling world meant Jaqi had a lot to learn
Little did Jaqi know that Leah and Ava would soon be the talk of the modeling world. They had only been models for a short time, but they were already working on six different jobs a week. Of course, it wasn’t long before the twins’ mom worried that the girls would be tired from all their extra work. Thankfully, Leah and Ava seemed to take it all in their stride.
They even wanted to do more modeling each time they left the set! However, Jaqi was still new to the industry, meaning she had a lot to learn as the twins continued to thrive. Jaqi opened up about it all on her blog, where she confessed getting to know “who you are getting involved with” is essential.
The traffic around Los Angeles caused a lot of issues for the family
Jaqi wants the world to know that although things have been great since Leah and Ava have started working as models, there have also been plenty of ups and downs throughout their new careers. One of the biggest things the family has had to deal with is traffic around Los Angeles.
There is a good reason it’s considered to be some of the worst traffic in the world. People often sit in their cars for hours, even if they only want to drive a few miles. That was the case for Leah, Ava, and Jaqi, as heading to downtown LA a few times a week meant they could be in the car for five or six hours before they got home.
Jaqi has been forced to listen to her gut instincts
Another thing that Jaqi has had to learn how to deal with is listening to her natural instincts, especially when it comes to working with someone new. Apparently, the mom has tried to reach out to several people to ask for advice throughout the years, but she now knows that she needs to learn to make some decisions on her own if she’s going to keep everyone safe.
Jaqi even added that if she doesn’t listen to her gut instinct, then she could end up paying for it later down the line. Now, she knows that if something doesn’t feel right, then it’s usually best to get out of the situation before anyone gets involved in something they later regret.
The family have faced a lot of backlash from people
Being models at such a young age is an exciting idea for some – and something that’s upset others. In fact, plenty of people have taken to Leah and Ava’s social media pages to share their views on how Jaqi has raised her children. It turns out that some people think the twins shouldn’t be allowed to step in front of the camera.
Jaqi? She knows that Leah and Ava both agree to model, and they haven’t been pushed to do anything. As far as she is concerned, they are happy, and that’s all that matters. In fact, Jaqi opened up about it all on her blog where she stated, “If you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything at all.”
Several people have questioned if Leah and Ava are truly happy
It turns out there is a frequent comment that comes up time and time again, and it’s all to do with how Leah and Ava look in many of their photos. Apparently, many people think the twins often look sad, and several fans believe this is proof they don’t want to model. Jaqi says this couldn’t be further from the truth.
In fact, she says that if anyone met the twins in real life, then they would know it’s far from the truth. If there’s one thing that many models have learned, it’s that sometimes, they have to be prepared to look how the director of the shoot wants them to appear. That is often the case for the twins as some photoshoots are more solemn than others.
Leah and Ava are often asked if they’re wearing makeup in photos
There is another question that’s been on many people’s minds the last few years: are Leah and Ava wearing makeup at their photoshoots? It seems that many people don’t think it’s a big deal as they know the twins are simply there to do a job. However, others are upset to think the youngsters could be altering their appearance already.
Jaqi has opened up about it all. She claims that all of the photoshoots are booked through the girls’ agents, and there is always “a hired hair and makeup artist on set.” When asked why Jaqi says that it’s “Because that’s how the industry works.” It seems that in Jaqi’s mind, it’s no big deal because wearing makeup is just a part of Leah and Ava’s work.
Saying “Let them be kids” is enough to anger Jaqi
If you don’t want to get Jaqi’s back up, then you might want to think about what you say to the mom before opening your mouth. That’s because there’s one phrase that angers Jaqi more than anything else, and it’s apparently when people tell her to “Let them be kids.” This is like waving a red rag at a bull for Jaqi as she says the twins have never been forced to model.
In fact, she feels that she’s made it clear the girls were asked if they wanted to model when they were seven years old and instantly decided it was something they wanted to try. If Leah and Ava didn’t want to model, then Jaqi insists she would never have put them in front of the camera.
Leah and Ava still know how to live a normal childhood
Although modeling takes up a huge amount of their time, it turns out that Leah and Ava haven’t forgotten about the things they used to love. In fact, Jaqi says that her twins are nothing more than normal little girls. They just so happen to have successful careers for themselves at the same time. No harm, right?
Even when Leah and Ava are on set, it’s said they love to joke and dance around, which might be no surprise as the twins have always loved their dance lessons. The sisters even make their own playlists for all those long car journeys into the middle of the city. It seems that Jaqi always wants to ensure that Leah and Ava have as much fun as possible.
Working as models has some surprising benefits for the family
Believe it or not, but there are plenty of unexpected benefits that have come along for the family since Leah and Ava started modeling. One of the things that Jaqi loves the most is the fact they get to spend so much time together. This is all thanks to the traffic around Los Angeles, meaning the trio spends hours chatting away each week.
The three also get to meet new people at every turn, including contacts who could help to make their careers go further in the future or have contacts that know just how to make the twins even bigger stars. Then there’s the fact Leah and Ava usually get to spend their photoshoots with other children their own age.
Jaqi has learned several tips for running social media pages
Some of the benefits of modeling are a little less obvious. It seems that Leah and Ava also love how they get to try out products and outfits before they’re even on the market, thanks to their time on set. That’s not all. The twins are often sent products from various brands and asked to try them out for free.
All they need to do is tag their names in their social media posts. This is just one of the many things that Jaqi has learned all about since she’s started running Leah and Ava’s social media pages. Thankfully, it turns out that this mom is more than willing to share her secrets with the rest of the world, too.
Learning hashtags is one of the many aspects of social media
One of the first things that Jaqi thinks is important to learn is that it’s best not to overpost, but you still want to make sure you have enough content for your fans. Jaqi believes that if you post too many photos, then people might get sick of you taking up their entire newsfeed. Instead, it’s all about finding a balance.
Then, it’s time to think about the hashtags. However, that doesn’t mean the mom always goes overboard with the number of hashtags on each post. Jaqi says that she’s learned which ones get the most exposure and knows ones that other child models use, meaning Leah and Ava are more likely to be spotted by agents or potential clients.
Tagging people in photos is more important than it seems
Another of the many tips on the list is tagging everyone who made the photo come to life. After all, it’s more than just the photographer who makes the final product, but they are one of the key players when it comes to the finished look. The artists, designers, hair and makeup artists, and anyone else on set all come together to make each picture come to life.
Jaqi always makes sure to tag them in both the photo and the comments to ensure no tag goes unnoticed or missing from any post. This is all to show their appreciation for everyone who worked on the photo shoot, but that’s not all. Jaqi knows the girls’ pictures will also show up on the other person’s page.
Your following section is as important as the followers
Running a successful social media page is about more than posting some pretty pictures and hoping for the best. It seems that people have to think every aspect of their page through if they want to make themselves stand out from the crowd. Have you ever thought about the people you follow on your page?
It seems that Jaqi has that covered as this mom follows all the other child models, stores and brands they have worked with, and photographers, to name just a few. Now that Leah and Ava have a large following, they are picky about who they follow back on social media. Jaqi’s also careful to spark up conversations with people in the comments, especially when trying to build relationships.
There are several reasons people have been drawn to Leah and Ava’s social media
It’s no secret that Leah and Ava have always been noticed for their looks and natural beauty. It might be no wonder that Jaqi has learned how to use this to her advantage. Now, she knows that people are drawn to certain photos of the twins, especially when they both feature in the same picture.
Apparently, Jaqi has even learned that people love it when Leah and Ava’s features are similar, and their eyes are next to each other as this seems to draw people into the snap. However, it wasn’t always their looks that got people talking about the twins. Jaqi says many fans fell for the girls’ outfits, meaning she would often borrow looks from her friend’s boutique store in return for promoting the company.
The group have learned that being honest is always best
Even though they have been in the modeling world for a few years, it turns out that Jaqi, Leah, and Ava are still learning the ropes when it comes to making it big. However, they have also learned that honesty is always the best policy. When working with everyone, from agents to photographers and everyone in between, they are always honest.
Apparently, saying what’s on their mind has always meant things are simple between the group, and it’s made the twins into a more loveable pair to work with as a result. It turns out that being honest is a great way to go about things for so many reasons. Perhaps it’s something more of us should learn how to perfect?
The children will only model for as long as they want to
Jaqi and her husband initially knew they wanted to try and help Leah and Ava become models. However, things didn’t get off to an easy start as the mom was raising three little ones and didn’t have the time to juggle an even busier routine. Thankfully, that all changed when the twins turned seven years old.
That doesn’t mean that anything is set in stone. In fact, Jaqi has always said that her children will only continue to model for as long as they want to be a part of that world. They just want to make sure that everyone is happy. Even if one of the twins decides they want to stop, Jaqi says they will support her wants and wishes.
Leah and Ava are always meeting new friends along the way
Thankfully, it seems there are plenty of benefits when it comes to modeling, especially when it comes to Leah and Ava meeting new people. Turning up for auditions and going through so many photoshoots a week means it can be easy to think they don’t have the time to talk to anyone outside of their family. However, that’s not the case.
Jaqi took to her blog, where she confessed that the twins meet new children all the time and “meet a new ‘friend’ for 10 minutes” at an audition before they are “asking me if this new friend can be their cousin.” Jaqi says the girls ask this because being friends doesn’t “express the love they have for their new friend.”
The twins don’t plan on slowing down anytime soon
It looks as though the twins have no plans of slowing down any time soon, even if they are both busy with their schoolwork alongside their modeling career. At this rate, it looks as though Leah and Ava will be modeling their way through school and even well into their adult careers.
Perhaps by then, the girls will have all the contact they need to make a full modeling career for themselves? That’s not all the twins have up their sleeve. It turns out that the girls also know how to act, as they have their own vlogging series. Here, they open up about their daily lives and what it’s like to work in the world of modeling from such a young age.
Being models means the family has to invest a lot of money
Perhaps you’ve found yourself thinking the twins and Jaqi are suddenly rolling in cash? It can be easy to believe that all of those jobs teamed with their successful social media pages means they’re living lives of luxury. However, that simply isn’t the case. In fact, Jaqi thinks that letting the girls be models is actually costing the family money.
After all, they have to pay for headshots, food, and gas almost every day, which all adds up in the end. That doesn’t mean it’s a wasted investment. On her blog, Jaqi explained that “the money we as parents put out now” is building a future for Leah and Ava. Hopefully, they will one day be able to pay “towards college or a car or a house .”
The twins love to go on different adventures each week
There are plenty of reasons that people want to become models. Some want a simple way to pay the bills, while others have a passion for fashion and the arts and want to do anything they can to bring their love to life. For Jaqi and the twins, it seems it’s the idea of going on weekly adventures that have kept them interested in the career for so long.
The mom writes on her blog that Leah and Ava love to head out somewhere new each week, especially as they never know where they will end up. It also gives them plenty of chances to spend time together, something they might not have if they didn’t have to drive between the photoshoots.
Everyone is free to express their opinions about Leah and Ava’s career
It turns out that Jaqi doesn’t have any plans to delete any comments anytime soon. In fact, the mom says that she welcomes everyone to leave their comments as everyone is entitled to their opinion. Being in the limelight for so long means that Jaqi has learned how to brush off anything that is directly aimed toward her.
However, she hasn’t admitted whether she lets Leah and Ava read the comments that talk about their career. All Jaqi wants to do is ensure the modeling world is a safe place for her children and everyone else involved in the industry. She’s just careful not to say anything that could put the twins’ career in jeopardy, especially as they have already come so far.
