Kaia Gerber Lands Her First Modelling Gig (And Looks Just Like Her Mum, Cindy Crawford)

Caroline Leaper

Cindy Crawford’s 14 year-old daughter Kaia Gerber has nailed her first ever fashion campaign shoot, proving that she’s destined to follow in the footsteps of her supermodel mum.

Posing for the achingly cool LA leather and accessories brand Chrome Hearts, Kaia is an actual doppelgänger of 90s Cindy, having inherited her mum’s big doe eyes and bouncy hair.

Laurie Lynn Stark, the co-owner of Chrome Hearts, shot the nine SS16 advertising pictures on the streets of New York, also raising awareness of the brand’s new flagship store which is due to open there soon.

Gigi Hadid and Suki Waterhouse previously cut their teeth modelling for the cult label, so Kaia can be sure that this gig is a great first step for her future career.

‘What a privilege it has been to watch Kaia blossom into her own,’ Laurie Lynn tells CR Fashion Book, the first publication to have featured Kaia in its editorial shoots, before she was signed by IMG Models last year. ‘Our families have been dear friends for so long so this was emotional for me—Kaia is an incredible talent, truly finding her own style as a model!’
