Ella Bleu Travolta is all grown up and just made her New York Fashion Week debut.
On September 17, the 22-year-old strutted her stuff in Karl Lagerfeld’s runway show for the Cara Loves Karl capsule collection. Her father, John Travolta, shared his daughter’s achievements on social media. The proud papa shared his daughter’s runway look and captioned the stunning photo, “So proud of Ella’s New York City fashion week debut!”
Fans were quick to point out that the model, daughter of Travolta and the late actress Kelly Preston, was the spitting image of both parents.
A fan commented, “She’s so beautiful and looks like her handsome dad!”
Another social media user wrote, “She reminds me of her mother in this photo!”
“Sounds like a perfect combination of John and Kelly,” summed up a third commenter.
Ella is a singer as well as a model and actress. She recently released the single “Dizzy” and has appeared with her father in films Old dogs and The Poisonous Rose.
In May 2022, the model posted a sweet Mother’s Day tribute on Instagram that included an adorable family photo with her late mom on the Dumbo ride at Disneyland.
“I’ve learned a lot from all the strong and powerful women in my life. Thank you all for being great role models,” Ella wrote. “I miss and love you, mom. Mother’s Blessings to all the amazing moms out there!”
Preston died of metastatic breast cancer in 2020 after battling the disease for two years. Since then, patriarch Travolta has spoken about guiding his children through grief. Travolta impersonated Kevin Hart on the series Peacock Hart to Heart as Ben, his 10-year-old son, expressed his fear that his actor father would die soon after losing his mother.
“He told me once, ‘Because of the death of mom, I’m afraid you’re going,'” the 67-year-old star Pulp Fiction and fat is reminded. “I said, ‘Well, it’s a very different thing.’ And I went through the differences in my longevity and their limited life.”
Travolta continued, “I said, ‘But you know, Ben – you always love the truth and I’m going to tell you the truth about life. Nobody knows when they’re going to or when they will be waiting. brother [Jett] left at 16. Too young. Your mother left at 57. That was too young. But who’s to say? I could die tomorrow. You could. Anyone can.”
At the end Travolta, who married Preston in 1991, said, “So, let’s look at it like it’s part of life. You just don’t know. You do your best trying to live as long as you can.”
