Kaia Gerber continues to follow in her supermodel mother’s footsteps in more ways than one.
Yesterday, Cindy Crawford shared side-by-side school pictures of her own high school yearbook photo next to her 16-year-old daughter’s school picture this year. Much like the two’s runway and editorial comparisons, the resemblance in the mother-daughter yearbook photos is uncanny—despite being taken over three decades apart.
Cindy captioned the photo, “School pics, now and then.” Of course, neither Kaia nor Cindy’s yearbook photo looks anything like the rest of ours did. From the eyebrows to the smile to the campaign-ready cheekbones, Kaia clearly inherited all of her mother’s supermodel genes.
Though it’s easy to become fixated on the mother-daughter duo’s incredible resemblance, 16-year-old Kaia is busy carving out a modeling career of her own. This past September, the teenager made her runway debut at Calvin Klein’s Spring 2018 show during New York Fashion Week. After that, she went on to dominate the runways in New York, London, Milan, and Paris—from Alexander Wang to Versace, Saint Laurent, Prada, Chanel and more.
Gerber has also landed campaigns for Marc Jacobs Beauty and Omega and covers of both Love Magazine and Teen Vogue. Most notably, however, the 16-year-old is already nominated for “Model of the Year” at this year’s British Fashion Awards. After just one season of walking the runway, Kaia is already up against Bella Hadid, Gigi Hadid, Winnie Harlow, and Adwoah Aboah.
Cindy Crawford has, of course, been along Kaia’s side every step of the way. And with a supermodel mom mentor like Cindy, this is only the beginning of Kaia’s sure-to-be-legendary career.
