Sixteen-year-old Kaia Gerber is the spitting image of her iconic fashion model mother, 51-year-old Cindy Crawford. Kaia, who is following in her mother’s footsteps in becoming a model, has signed with IMG Models, but that’s not why she resembles her mom so much. Cindy recently shared side-by-side school pictures of her own high school yearbook photo next to her daughter’s school picture of this year. The resemblance is uncanny! They look like twins, as published by Delish.
Cindy captioned the photo, “School pics, now and then.” Where to start? From the eyebrows to the smile or the campaign-ready cheekbones, Kaia clearly inherited all of her mother’s supermodel genes.
Although the resemblance is huge, Kaia is walking toward a modeling career of her own. This past September, the teenager made her runway debut at Calvin Klein’s Spring 2018 show during New York Fashion Week. Later on, she dominated the runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris — from Alexander Wang to Versace, Saint Laurent, Prada, Chanel and more.
That’s not all she is doing. Gerber has also landed campaigns for Marc Jacobs Beauty and Omega and covers of both Love Magazine and Teen Vogue. Her maybe most-notable nomination was “Model of the Year” at this year’s British Fashion Awards. After just one season of walking the runway, Kaia is already up against Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Winnie Harlow and Adwoah Aboah.
Cindy Crawford has been a supportive mother so far, being with her all the time. We can’t wait to see how her career will develop.
