NO BASIC GIRL OF THE WEEK: Kaia Gerber

At age 10, she modelled for Versace. By age 14 she was on the cover of Vogue Paris with her gorgeous mom by her side. The new face of Hudson Jeans, Kaia Gerber is only 16 and already has quite an impressive resume!

 

 

 

 

Daughter and spitting image of supermodel Cindy Crawford, Kaia
has very quickly become one of the most sought-after models in the world.

She made her runway debut last month at Raf Simon’s Calvin Klein show during New York Fashion Week, Tweeting after the show:

“CALVIN KLEIN! there are no words to describe how I feel… I love you endlessly Raf!”

 

Since then, she has walked the runway for multiple high-profile designers, including Alexander Wang, Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Versace, Saint Laurent, Prada, Off-White, Valentino, Isabel Marant and Fendi — absolutely killing it on the runway this season. As if winning the Breakthrough Model of the Year Award during New York Fashion week wasn’t enough, in 2016 we also saw Gerber become the face of Marc Jacobs Beauty, star in Alexander Wang’s SS16 ad campaign, and make her acting debut in the film, Sister Cities.

 

When asked who she looks up to, Kaia says that her model mentor is Karlie Kloss, and that Kendall Jenner is her inspiration, praising Jenner for balancing her career with her social life.
Well, we think you’re pretty inspiring yourself, Miss. Gerber!
