Kaia Gerber is absolutely killing the fashion game, just like her supermodel mom, Cindy Crawford, has for decandes. But other than knowing that Kaia is practically a replica of her Cindy, there are some things you haven’t learned yet. We have the five fast facts you have to know here!
Kaia Gerber is only 14, but she’s done SO much already. Not really much of a surprise considering her mom is top model icon, Cindy Crawford, 50. Kaia definitely takes after her mother in the looks department, but she also takes after her natural modeling skills. Here is everything you need to know about the superstar in the making!
1. She started modeling at the age of 10.
Say what?! We can’t even remember what we were doing when we were 10 — probably doodling in our journals. But Kaia, on the other hand, was launching her very own modeling career. Talk about impressive. Kaia signed to IMG models three-years younger than Cindy who started her career at the age of 16.
2. Her first modeling gig was for Versace.
Okay, can we be like Kaia when we grow up? Not only did she land a modeling deal at a really young age, but right out of the gate she scored her first gig with Versace! Kaia began modeling with the high fashion brand as part of the kids division. “Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift,” Donatella Versace said when she first hired Kaia in 2012. “The camera really, really loves her. It was such a special treat watching Kaia walk in her mother’s footsteps.”
3. In just one year, she’s landed major, high fashion campaigns.
In just one year, Kaia has already added huge fashion brands to her resume. In addition to Versace, Kaia has also been named the face of Miu Miu sunglasses and Alexander Wang. She’s even been featured in New York Fashion Week shows and been in major fashion magazines including, Vogue, Teen Vogue, and Pop Magazine.
4. She recently made her acting debut in an upcoming film.
Not only is she fashion’s newest talent, but it looks like Kaia is also planning a movie takeover as well! Cindy’s protegé made her acting debut in the new Lifetime film, Sister Cities. The movie, which chronicles the lives of four sisters has an all-star cast, including Pretty Little Liars actress, Troian Bellisario, 30, and Michelle Trachtenberg, 30. Kaia plays the younger version of one of the sisters, Carolina Baxter. “This was an incredible experience,” the model told Entertainment Weekly of her new role. “I could never imagine something better as my first role.” Sister Cities is set to premiere on Lifetime on Sept. 17.
5. Kaia’s brother is also a rising model.
Kaia isn’t the only model kid in the family. Her older brother, Presley Gerber, 17, is also a rising model who’s been featured in Versace, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana, and Carine Roitfeld’s, 61, CR Fashion Book. Dominating the fashion world definitely runs in the family.
