Cindy Crawford’s Daughter is Awesome on Instagram


By NoelGRSr


Kaia Gerber would be just like any other teen on Instagram if not for two things. The first is that while she may only be 14, she’s rapidly becoming a model to watch out for and already has some big-name gigs under her belt. And that leads us neatly into the second point: Kaia can take modeling tips from none other than her mom, ’90s glamazon Cindy Crawford. Perhaps these things in part explain why the teen now has an incredible 247,000 Instagram followers and counting – but there are definitely many more reasons why you should be among their number.

Just one look at Kaia’s Instagram shows that she bears a crazily similar resemblance to her mother’s younger self – something that both Instagrammers and the media haven’t failed to pick up on.

And even without Cindy’s beautiful genes, Kaia has done well in having a former model as a dad, too. He’s none other than businessman Rande Gerber, who married Kaia’s mom in May 1998.

It’s perhaps no surprise, then, that Kaia is following in her parents’ footsteps by becoming a model herself – and at a remarkably young age. One of her first gigs, in fact, was for Teen Voguein the winter of 2014, when she was only 13.

However, that wasn’t the first time the celebrity daughter had participated in a prestigious fashion shoot. In early 2012 a ten-year-old Kaia posed for a Young Versace campaign, with her mother on set with her at all times.

Cindy’s not mad about Kaia taking her model crown, though. As the ’90s icon wrote in her 2015 book, Becoming, “I always tease my daughter – who everyone agrees is a mini-me – and say, ‘You have my old hair – I want it back!’

And Kaia’s reaction, apparently, is to giggle and say, “It’s my turn now.” Well, if you’re going to be replaced by a younger model, who better than your own daughter?

What’s more, as Cindy revealed to People, she even shares clothes with her almost identical-looking offspring. “Sometimes she’ll wear something of mine and it looks so good on her and I’m like, ‘Okay, you can just have it!’”

Kaia is like other teens in one respect, though: she loves to mess around with taking selfies. That word, of course, hadn’t even been coined when her mother was starting out.

Oh, and also as with many other young people of her generation, Kaia has had a crush on One Direction member Harry Styles. That’s a fact that her mother happily revealed to the entire world, proving in the process that even the coolest and most successful moms can be super-embarrassing.

Not many people of Kaia’s age, however, have received acclaim from none other than Donatella Versace. After the Young Versace shoot in 2012, the fashion designer said of Kaia, “Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift. The camera really, really loves her.” We’d have to agree.

And if you’re wondering who snapped Kaia’s non-selfie Instagram pics, chances are that they were taken by her older brother, the equally good-looking Presley – who also models a bit, natch

Another point is obvious just from taking a quick peek at Kaia’s Instagram photos: she may be many years from even being able to drink, but she’s already living the high life. Even some of her most casual photographs feature her by luxurious pools or sitting on expensive jet skis.

Meanwhile, merely the briefest glimpse of the Crawford-Gerber house is enough to induce jealousy. It’s perhaps all the more surprising, then, that Kaia doesn’t behave in the least bit spoiled and is by all accounts lovely and easygoing.

Still, that’s not to say major celebrities don’t tend to pop up all the time on her Instagram feed, posing like they’re just regular friends hanging out – which they probably are.

She even ran into Snoop Dogg on an airplane, because this is the sort of thing that happens when you’re a supermodel’s kid.

And, because she’s a supermodel’s kid, Kaia has traveled the world and seen beautiful places. Ah, the difficulty of having a mother whose net worth is in the tens of millions.

What’s more, despite often looking older than 14 in her snaps, Kaia is definitely still just a kid, albeit one with a lot of ambition.

Indeed, in a bid to discover her true path in life, among other things she’s already started auditioning for movie roles.

“I like to explore beyond who I am so I can feel for other people,” Kaia has said about her desire to someday act. “When you become someone else, you better understand others.”

And while we can only wait and see as to whether Kaia ends up becoming an A-list actress, we wouldn’t bet against it.
