The stylish attendees of New York Fashion week had to do a double take when they saw Kaia Gerber. The young daughter of Cindy Crawford made her NYFW debut at the Public School show on Sept. 13, giving onlookers serious flashbacks to when her mother began modeling!
Kaia Gerber is just 14 years old, and she’s already the talk of the fashion world. The daughter of style legend, Cindy Crawford, 49, has already begun her career as a model, landing some major modeling gigs before she’s old enough to legally drive. Now, the young fashionista made her New York Fashion Week debut!
Kaia turned heads when she sat in the front row at the Public School show on Sept. 13, reports People. Kaia was sharply dressed, wearing a black short-sleeve midi dress and a choker that peeked out from her tousled hair. Kaia bore a striking likeness to her mother when Cindy started her modeling career in the late 1980’s, causing some fans to wonder what decade it was.
Though Kaia is just 14-years-old, she’s already graced the pages of Vogue Italia. She scored a Versace campaign at age 10, though her mother quickly stepped in to put that career on hold. As Kaia looks to pick modeling back up, the young lady has landed a contract with the agency IMG, which sees Kaia as a second-generation supermodel in the making.

In addition to those high profile gigs, the teen was picked to appear in Carine Roitfield‘s prestigious CR Fashion book. The young girl looked stunning in photographs taken by Bruce Weber, showing off the style and beauty she clearly got from her mother.
However, while some at NYFW were checking if they were seeing a young Cindy Crawford, Kaia doesn’t think she looks like her mom. While she doesn’t “see the resemblance,” Kaia reportedly told Teen Vogue that “everyone says it’s there, so I trust them.”
What do you think about Kaia, HollywoodLifers? Do you think she looks like her mom? Is she going to be the next big name in the fashion world?
