7 Celebrities Who Successfully Stepped Out of Their Siblings’ Shadows (Solange, Janet, Khloe and More!)

When you have a famous sibling, it can be hard not to feel like you’re  in their shadow. They’re the A-lister, paparazzi scream their name, while you’re virtually unknown or only referred to as the brother or sister of “such-and-such” celebrity. But some siblings have managed to use their talents, or in some cases good publicity, to create an identity that separates them from the other famous family member.

Check out 7 celebs who stepped out of their siblings’ enormous shadows.

Solange Knowles

Once upon a time, Solange couldn’t escape the title, “Beyonce’s Younger Sister.” She will always be, but she’s now known more as a style influencer and DJ.
