Katherine Schwarzenegger has stepped out from the shadow of her famous parents and into the sunlight.

In the September issue of Harper's Bazaar, the eldest daughter of Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger, now 21, poses in a flowing dress atop a white horse – and speaks out about her parents' very public separation.

"I've always been way closer to my mom," she says. "Even when I was little, I was glued to her all the time. I'm close to my dad, but they're totally different kinds of relationships."

Schwarzenegger didn't need Mom by her side for the photo shoot, however. She just needed a trusty steed.
