Mom is supermodel Cindy Crawford and dad is handsome restaurant-mogul Randy Gerber, so it’s not a huge shocker that daughter, Kaia Gerber, is a total knockout.
What is surprising is that she is only 10 years old, and just landed her first modeling gig as the face of Young Versace – a new line of children’s clothing. The campaign for spring/summer 2012, featuring the young beauty, was shot by famed photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
“Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift. The camera really, really loves her,” Donatella Versace, Creative Director of Versace, said. “Having Cindy on-set for the shoot took me back to all the amazing Avedon shoots we worked on together. It was such a special treat watching Kaia walk in her mother’s footsteps!”
Cindy, who was once the muse of Gianni Versace herself, discussed the honor of seeing her daughter follow in her footsteps. “I’m so thrilled that Kaia was chosen to be part of the first Young Versace Campaign,” Cindy said. “I have so many fond memories of the times I spent with Gianni and Donatella. There is something so very special about the House of Versace. Being on-set with my daughter watching her in front of the camera was a fantastic experience. I am so proud of her.”
The line, which aimed at kids up to the age of 12, will be available at the Versace Young boutique in Milan and in select stores.
