Kaia Gerber is definitely one to watch. At only 14, she’s a spitting image of her supermodel mother Cindy Crawford. Having already graced the pages of Vogue Italia, she made her NYFW debut last month and has quickly become the talk of the fashion world. But this doesn’t mean she is just another famous model’s kid. Kaia is making a career of her own as a model and actress.

Kaia has an older brother, Presley. If Kaia is our new girl crush, we know who our new boy crush is…

Presley wins at blue steel for sure

Kaia just signed with top modelling agency IMG models in July. Within a second of getting signed she landed a gorgeous editorial for Vogue Italia and CR Fashion Book. Notice the family resemblance?

Kaia one upped her Mom by getting a role in the upcoming film Sister Cities. We can’t wait to see that indie drama.

Thrilled to welcome Kaia Gerber to #SisterCities!

Despite all of her recent success, Kaia insists her mom doesn’t want her start a career too young. Cindy says it’s important that her daughter not rely on her beauty to get ahead in the world. But that doesn’t mean that Cindy won’t support Kaia in her modelling career. When Kaia was 12, Versace featured her in a campaign. Cindy said, “[Versace] was a one-off thing. She had fun. She’s 12. We’ll see what happens. I can at least help her navigate it. She’s more interested in singing and dancing. Right now she’s interested in Harry Styles.”

Thanks for coming by again @harrystyles and giving Ava a mini heart attack…

Kaia comes from a good set of genes. Her father is model Rande Gerber. His response to his daughter’s growing fame? “Buy a shotgun.” All jokes aside, Kaia’s parents seem pretty chill. Her dad says, “So far they’ve stayed out of trouble. They’re not doing anything they shouldn’t be. At least, we don’t know about it, so they’re smart enough, if they are, to be keeping it from us!”

But when it comes to their kid’s health, Kaia’s parents don’t mess around. Her and her brother both missed their first day of school at Malibu High School because testing showed elevated levels of PCBs in their school building. Cindy said, “I don’t feel 100 percent safe. I look 10 years down the line, what if my kid, God forbid, had a problem? How could I live with myself if I knew that it was a possibility, and I still sent them there?”

It must have been pretty crazy growing up as the kids of some of the world’s biggest supermodels. Kaia grew up surrounded by her mom’s friends including Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Linda Evangelista. She says she thought of them as “really pretty.” Yeah, we’d bet!

She is BFFs with it-girl Bella Hadid. #squadgoals

As if she doesn’t do enough already, Kaia is also interested in creative writing. She says she loves getting the opportunity to tell other people’s stories. It’s her fave subject in school.

Her style: Kaia says, “I wear jeans and a T-shirt most of the time.”

Fochella… @CharlotteSLawrence
