THERE IS no questioning her mark of destiny. Blink and you will be forgiven for a small case of mistaken identity for there is familiarity in those brown eyes, the bronzed legs that go on and on for miles and a face that is beautiful, in a legendary supermodel kind of way.
A new generation of supermodels is emerging and Kaia Gerber, unmistakably the daughter of fashion’s elite icon, Cindy Crawford is perfectly positioned to lead the way for a generation that will go beyond IT girl status to legitimately form a new breed of ‘supers’.At only 14 years of age, and already standing at 168cm tall, Kaia is not only following in her Supermodel Mum’s footsteps but filling her shoes at a rapid rate.
Contracted and signed to IMG, the home of Karlie Kloss, Kate Moss, and Rosie Huntington-Whitely – just to name a few – Kaia is in good company and within the space of just 12 months is heading toward supermodel distinction and standing with a resume that reads like a dream: a spread for teen vogue, walking for Versace and Alexander Wang (yes she has officially been tagged as part of the #wangsquad) and the recent announcement as the new face for Miu Miu Official Eyewear. Oh, and there is this one little thing called a cover with Vogue Paris alongside her Mum, which Kaia revealed in her interview with Vogue, is the ultimate sign that you have been accepted into the fashion world.
And accepted she is; not only has she been photographed by the industry’s heavy weights including Steven Meisel, she also shares the Kardashian and Jenner stylist, has a posse of famous friends watching her back, cue Cara, “Taytay” and Kendall (did you catch our coverage on the recent Swift-Kardashian-Klash? … no, that ‘k’ was not a typo).
Her prowess and cool-girl presence on Instagram (just a simple half-a-million followers … and we all know followers are the new currency) is testimony that she is the one to watch.
Simply put: we think it’s high time #stylehunters that you joined the Kaia revolution.
