Paulina Gretzky definitely has a Flare for modelling.

The 24-year-old daughter of Wayne "Great One" Gretzky has landed the February cover of Canadian fashion magazine Flare eight years after making her modelling debut in the same publication.

The model and budding socialiate -- photographed by another Canadian icon's daughter, Caitlin Cronenberg (filmmaker David's kid) -- let her legs steal the show as she posed at Toronto's Elgin and Winter Garden Theatre last year in a pale pink Reed Krakoff sweater and skirt and some very clunky Dior heels. Though she looks at home on camera, Paulina revealed that thanks to her last modelling gig, she was wary of being photographed again.

"The last time I was in a shoot it was for Complex Magazine and they took advantage of the situation," she told Flare, adding, "They videotaped me pouring water over myself and made it look like soft porn. I’ve never been so angry in my entire life."

Paulina claimed she was "on edge all day" during the shoot for Flare because she "was mortified that I’d be in a backless dress and they would be filming, or in a sheer dress, and they would be picking something up in a video camera that you couldn’t pick up with a print camera. I was very uncomfortable."

No doubt she was equally unsure back in 2005, when, at just 16, Paulina travelled to Toronto to be photographed for the cover of Flare for the first time. She was accompanied by her family, including mom Janet, who appeared in Flare in 1988 when she was four months pregnant with Paulina.

In a far more demure pose than her 2013 cover, Paulina appeared in the vintage shoot with her hands clasped in front of her as she sports a pair of tan pants and a white jacket over a turquoise tank top.

“I want to be a triple threat. I want to get into everything: singing, acting, modeling. I love it all,” she said at the time -- she released the single "Collecting Dust" in 2006 and is currently "putting together a team of producers" in the hopes of releasing her first album.
