Cindy Crawford certainly has some strong genes. Her gorgeous, look-alike daughter, Kaia Gerber, is now following in her footsteps — officially establishing a modeling career of her own. Natch.
As she grows up, Kaia Gerber, 13, is starting to transform into the splitting image of her mother, Cindy Crawford, 49. With mom’s days as a supermodel in the past, it seems as if Kaia is fated to the same legacy. The teen just inked a huge contract with IMG Models and is currently gracing the pages of Vogue Italia for her first major magazine spread. Click inside to see the stunning shots.
IMG proudly announced Kaia as an addition to their impressive roster of talent via Instagram on July 8, showing her posing in a set of breathtaking black and white editorial photos — shot by esteemed photog, Steven Meisel, for Vogue Italia. “Now representing: @KaiaGerber,” the prestigious agency wrote. “Welcome to the family!”
Doing the menswear trend justice in the first shot, Kaia is the epitome of class donning a crisp white shirt along with a structured pea coat and tie. In the second frame, Cindy’s little girl takes on a completely different look, serving major whimsy and sass in a leopard fur coat.
“Unreal,” a proud Kaia wrote on Twitter and Instagram accompanied by the animal-print jacket snap, which featured effortless beauty provided by celeb make-up guru, Pat McGrath. Beyond beautiful.
Clearly ecstatic for her baby girl’s early success, Cindy echoed the same amount of pride with the following message on social media, joking, “Guess I better watch my back… Love this shot of @KaiaGerber by #StevenMeisel for @VogueItalia!”
