Kaia Gerber sometimes needs a second to tell herself apart from mother Cindy Crawford when looking at photos.

The model, who is the daughter of Crawford and Rande Gerber, landed her first fashion gig at the age of 10, and after completing high school, has walked the runway for the likes of Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Chanel, Versace, and Fendi.

But despite Kaia having a strong resemblance to her famous mum, in a new interview for U.S. Vogue magazine, the rising star insisted that she has only recently noticed their similarities.

“From day one, people in the industry were often taken aback by my resemblance to my mom,” the 18-year-old commented. “As I get older, it happens even more, and it’s not just a visual thing: It’s everything from our mannerisms to our voices. It used to be that I didn’t see it at all, but now I will look at a picture and have to take a moment before realising which one of us it is. But the biggest compliment is when someone says I act like my mom.”

But if fans are having trouble telling Kaia and Cindy apart, the model noted that there is one very easy way to distinguish between the brunette beauties.

“A quick tip: My mom’s the one with the mole,” she smiled.

Elsewhere in the chat, Kaia spoke about her decision to enter the fashion world, the impact the Time’s Up and #MeToo movements have had on the industry, as well as the way in which social media gives models power.

“We used to see (models as) a kind of fantasy that was a bit removed from the real world. And while that magic is dimmed a little now, I believe it’s for the better,” Kaia mused. “I think it’s cool that we get to see everyone looking like themselves – for a young girl to realise, ‘OK, they don’t always look like that.'”

Cindy Crawford was pressured into posing nude by photographer

Cindy Crawford regrets once allowing a photographer pressure her into posing nude.

The supermodel made the startling confession during a joint interview with her daughter Kaia Gerber at Vogue’s Forces of Fashion conference on Thursday, as the pair began to discuss how the #MeToo movement has affected the fashion industry.

While the 53-year-old has willingly posed nude for the likes of late photography icons Herb Ritts and Helmut Newton, she shared one incident in which she was put under pressure to go nude during the shoot.

“I’ve done a tonne of nudes throughout my career, but I never ever felt bad about (it) except for one time. And it was because it wasn’t supposed to be a nude and I kind of felt like a little pressured into it,” Cindy explained.

She gave no further details about the photographer, or when the distressing incident took place, but insisted it didn’t happen when she was under the age of 18.

“I, even as a woman of 53, want to feel respected and protected in any work environment I’m in. But that one time with that guy, it just felt not right. Those are the only ones I regret. They actually are not even full nudes; they were from the back, sort of. But I didn’t vote myself in,” she continued. “Sometimes they don’t like when you say no, but now I think models feel more empowered to say ‘no’.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Kaia opened up about the challenges she faces as the daughter of one of the world’s most famous women.

“I came from an already known family so it was easy for people to have preconceived ideas about me,” the 18-year-old reflected. “The biggest struggle was proving people wrong. I almost had to go backwards before I went forward.”

Lila Moss offers mum Kate Moss make-up tips

Lila Moss has taught her supermodel mother Kate Moss how to use highlighter.

The 17-year-old, who is the daughter of the fashion icon and media mogul Jefferson Hack, landed her first gig as the face of Marc Jacobs Beauty last year, and her career has gone from strength to strength ever since.

And while Lila has learned a lot from her mother, she confessed in a new interview with InStyle that the 45-year-old needs her help when it comes to make-up.

“I’ve taught her how apply highlighter in the right places. Once, I noticed she did it completely wrong, so I had to correct it,” she told the publication. “(But) she’s shown me the best way to curl my eyelashes. She’s always used an eyelash curler, and I used to be so scared to do it.

“Start right at the bottom rather than in the middle so that the whole lash gets curled.”

The teen was on the receiving end of some wise words from her mum when she began shooting the Marc Jacobs Beauty campaign too.

“Before shooting my first campaign, she told me, ‘Listen and do what they tell you to do.’ It was intimidating, but it was amazing to know that I could trust Marc and the creative team. But I think the best lesson she has taught me is to, ‘Work hard, be polite to everyone I meet, and to always make sure you’re comfortable with whatever you’re doing,'” the rising star shared.

Elsewhere in the interview, Lila discussed how she and fellow model Kaia Gerber, who is the 18-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford, have had to work hard to make sure they have successful careers purely because of talent, and not a famous surname.

“Girls like Kaia Gerber, or Gigi and Bella Hadid are great examples. They are inspired by their mum’s legacies but have shown that they each have different and separate paths from their parents,” she added.

Alexander McQueen honours artisan traditions with spring 2020 collection

Alexander McQueen has paid tribute to artisan traditions with its spring/summer 2020 collection.

Creative director Sarah Burton unveiled her latest line at the Musee de l’Orangerie as part of Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday night, with the spectacle drawing in celebrities such as Naomi Campbell and Anna Dello Russo.

In her show notes, the British designer explained that she had been inspired by a recent trip to Northern Ireland where she had learned about the techniques used in manufacturing traditional linens and embroideries.

“Each look tells its own story,” she shared. “The connection between the clothes is the time it took to make them. I was interested in clarity and paring things down, in the essence of garment – stripping back to the toile. I love the idea of people having the time to make things together, the time to meet and talk together, the time to reconnect with the world.”

With members of the London Contemporary Orchestra playing a piece composed by Isobel Waller-Bridge, the show opened with model Vilma Sjoberg walking the runway in a puff-sleeve dress with contrast feather-stitch detailing, which was made from beetled moonlit ivory linen and accessorised with a black leather belt and boots. Beetling refers to the process of pounding linen or cotton fabric to give a flat, lustrous effect.

A series of black and white suits and dresses from the same material followed, with the garments interspersed with touches of white lace and grey suits featuring cutouts at the waist.

Partway through the show, Burton also incorporated abstract prints influenced by the work of fashion students who took life drawing classes at the label’s London flagship store, with all of the artists credited in the show notes, while the presentation built to a dramatic conclusion with the unveiling of a parade of dresses with sculptural sleeves and layered tulle, as well as models Kaia Gerber and Cosima Fritz sporting pink and ice-blue numbers which resembled blooming dahlia blossoms.

To conclude, Adut Akech wowed in a deconstructed tailored jacket in black garment beetled linen.

Stella McCartney has played with stripes and relaxed suiting for her spring/summer 2020 collection.

The British designer unveiled her latest line at the Opera Garnier as part of Paris Fashion Week on Monday, with celebrities including Paul McCartney, Anna Wintour, Natalia Vodianova, Maisie Williams, Ellie Goulding, and Vivienne Westwood in attendance.

Regarding her inspiration for the range, Stella explained that she wanted to honour “fierce women” who aren’t afraid to make the world their own.

“The free-spirits, the wild ones, the artists and the risk-takers,” the 48-year-old shared in her show notes. “True individuals with strength of character who shine their light bravely. As natural beauty meets modernity, fluid meets graphic and eccentricity meets simplicity, structure is built up and broken down, expressing strength of heart and the duality of the modern woman.”

The spectacle opened with model Krini Hernandez walking the runway in black and white striped trousers, a beige shirt, and a boxy beige blazer, with the look accessorised with gladiator sandals and bio-acetate sunglasses hanging off of oversized artful chains.

A line-up of separates in a palette of white, brown, and Oxford blue followed, while pops of colour were apparent in an orange dress sported by Anok Yai and a teal coat worn by Amber Valletta.

In keeping with Stella’s eco-friendly ethos, items were made from organic cotton, sustainable viscose, hemp, and sustainable raffia, while many of the suits were manufactured from Japanese recycled polyester fabric.

Alongside pieces with petal edging and denim-on-denim ensembles, the fashion star also introduced a series of floral dresses, with the prints inspired by photographs she had taken during bike rides through the English countryside.

Highlights included a floral print suit and shirt combo worn by male model Khadim Sock and a two-piece outfit made from the same fabric which was modelled by Kaia Gerber.

Valentino played with colour for its spring/summer 2020 collection on Sunday.

Creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli presented his latest line for the luxury Italian fashion house at Les Invalides as part of Paris Fashion Week, with celebrities such as Naomi Campbell, Amber Valletta, Alexa Chung, and Nathalie Emmanuel all perched on the front row.

The show opened and closed with a series of all-white looks reminiscent of founder Valentino Garavani’s 1968 All White collection, kicking off with Adut Akech modelling a wrap dress with billowing sleeves and white rope belt, and continued with starched bibs, voluminous sleeves, collars, and ruffs that evoked religious imagery.

Yet, according to editors at Vogue, Piccioli stated that there was no deliberate religious or historical referencing.

In the show notes, the designer explained, “By subtracting colour, shape and volumes come to the fore,” and that “the non-colour white is ultimately a sum of every colour of the spectrum”.

He went on to explore colour in the mid-section of the show by switching from white to maxi dresses in lime green and coral, and also unveiled minidresses in neon pink and green before a run of ensembles in an array of striking colours.

“The purity of shapes and volumes joins in conversation with an extravagance of colour and material for #ValentinoSS20, shown this evening at Hotel National des Invalides in Paris,” a Valentino representative wrote on Instagram.

The models, which included Kaia Gerber, Fran Summers, and Anok Yai, also wore dresses adorned with vibrant prints showing flora and fauna, inspired by nature paintings by 19th-century French artist Henri Rousseau, sheer material, and marabou feathers.

Looks were matched with flat rope sandals and bold gold make-up by Pat McGrath.

Naomi Campbell closed Saint Laurent’s spring/summer 2020 Paris Fashion Week show on Tuesday night.

The iconic supermodel wowed the crowd, which included models Kate Moss, Eva Herzigova, Cindy Crawford, and Amber Valletta as well as celebrities like Salma Hayek, Rami Malek, Andie MacDowell, and Ezra Miller, as she closed creative director Anthony Vaccarello’s latest presentation.

She strutted down the long runway in front of the Eiffel Tower wearing a black sequinned blazer jacket and matching trousers – a nod to the French fashion house’s famous Le Smoking suit – and black pointed ankle strap pumps with gold tips.

The 49-year-old shared footage of herself walking in the shimmering suit and wrote on Instagram, “Closing @ysl Spring Summer 2020 tonight was an honour! Thank you @anthonyvaccarello & @pg_dmcasting.”

Naomi had hinted at her appearance earlier in the day by sharing throwback footage of herself walking the YSL runway for the Couture Spring 2002 show and another snap of herself on the runway with Yves Saint Laurent himself.

“Mr. Yves Saint Laurent, you believed in me and stood by my side when I needed it most! Grateful for you and for all the memories we’ve made together over the years. Kind-hearted, creative genius and fashion visionary! We miss you dearly,” she wrote in the caption.

The show marked Naomi’s first appearance for a fashion house for spring/summer 2020. Earlier this month, she walked the runway for her annual charity event, Fashion for Relief, during London Fashion Week.

For his spring/summer 2020 collection, Vaccarello channelled rocker chic, festival style, and bohemian looks, with the collection featuring gold paisley embroidered dresses, chiffon blouses, and peasant-style smocks.

The models, which included Kaia Gerber and Stella Tennant, also donned micro shorts, cut-off jeans, waistcoats, cowboy boots, and tuxedo ensembles.

Kaia Gerber ‘liberated’ by her new Kurt Cobain-inspired haircut

Kaia Gerber felt “liberated” after getting her long hair chopped into a shaggy bob inspired by Kurt Cobain’s signature hairstyle.

The 18-year-old model decided to get rid of her long, flowing brunette locks after completing a job, as she felt pressure to keep her hair in a certain style to help her career.

“For so long, I felt this pressure to have the long, pretty hair that everyone expects you to have,” Gerber told Vogue Australia. “Then I asked myself who I was doing that for – I could cut my hair if I wanted to cut my hair. And I did.”

She added that her muse for the new look was late rocker Cobain, the lead singer of ’90s rock band Nirvana.

“I definitely feel more ‘me’. It gave me more individuality. It’s also just easier. I think every woman at least once in her life should feel the liberation of cutting her hair off. It felt very cleansing; it was actually a weight off my shoulders,” the daughter of famed supermodel Cindy Crawford explained.

Gerber debuted her new look on the runway during Milan Fashion Week, as she walked for designers including Alberta Ferretti, Max Mara, and Prada.

The star insisted hairstylist Guido Palau work his magic on her locks and told him that if he didn’t cut her hair, she would just go to a regular hair salon.

“I asked her if she wanted to save it for a show or an editorial, and she said, ‘No, if you don’t do it, I’m just going to get it done around the corner.’ She had a very strong opinion about (what she wanted to do),” Palau told the magazine.

And Gerber teased the possibility of more transformative looks in the future.

“Every time I see Guido, I ask him to cut it more, just a little bit. It’s so freeing and I love having it off my shoulders,” she gushed.

Jeremy Scott has paid tribute to Pablo Picasso for Moschino’s spring/summer 2020 collection.

The fashion designer unveiled his latest line for the Italian label as part of Milan Fashion Week on Thursday night, and true to form, offered up an extravagant spectacle.

Honouring the life and artwork of the Spanish painter and sculptor, the presentation opened with a model walking the runway in a brightly coloured dress which evoked Picasso’s early Fauvist-inspired art.

Brightly coloured printed suits and graphic coats with sharp shoulders followed, with dresses resembling the flowing curves and abstract shapes of the icon’s first Cubist pieces.

Referencing Picasso’s heritage, one model sported the red cape and black hat of a matador, along with blue leggings and shiny gold jewellery, while another carried a black purse with the words “Bull chic” splashed across the front.

Joan Smalls rocked a red and gold dress inspired by the embellished outfits worn by bullfighters, and another model showed off a red polka dot dress with ruffled sleeves, similar to the worn of flamenco dancers.

A highlight of the collection was a black gown dotted with sequin flower appliques, with the look worn by Stella Maxwell, as was a black velvet dress with architectural shoulders that was dotted with blue and green beads and had pink lining in the skirt.

Yet, somehow Scott managed to turn the theme up another notch towards the end of the presentation, having Kaia Gerber walk the catwalk in an outfit shaped into a guitar, as influenced by Picasso’s still life paintings, another model donned a sequin dress which referred to the artist’s groundbreaking 1907 work Les Demoiselles d’Avignon, and others sported pieces that looked like actual gold Baroque picture frames.

To conclude, Bella Hadid rocked a pink and blue sequin jumpsuit which alluded to Picasso’s paintings of harlequins, Irina Shayk dazzled in a gold and black dress with violin motif, and Gigi Hadid was Moschino’s “bride” in an over-the-top white dress with huge veil and dove motifs attached to the front.

Marc Jacobs has dished up a joyful yet nostalgic collection for spring/summer 2020.

The designer unveiled his latest line at the Park Avenue Armory as part of New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, with celebrity guests including Zendaya, Law Roach, Debi Mazar, Anwar Hadid, Dua Lipa, and Migos’ Offset and Quavo.

Regarding the inspiration behind the spectacle, Jacobs commented that he wanted to reflect on the past whilst also presenting an optimistic view of the future.

“This show is a celebration of life, joy, equality, individuality, optimism, happiness, indulgence, dreams and a future unwritten as we continue to learn from our past and the history of fashion,” he shared in the show notes, before going on to refer to major stars who passed away in the recent years who have influenced him. “From the genius of Karl (Lagerfeld), the cheerful and bright-eyed positivity of Doris Day, the incomparable timeless style of Lee Radziwill and the effortless coolness of Anita Pallenberg that endures a half-century later… As with closely guarded tradition, tonight is our reminder of the joy in dressing up, our unadulterated love of fashion and embracing grand gestures of unbridled expressions, reactions, ideas, and possibilities.”

After a diverse set of models flooded the venue while classic song Dream a Little Dream of Me played in the background, they then each took to the runway in the centre of the room, and the show opened with a yellow suit with matching hat, purple scarf, and lavender suede boots.

Jacobs proceeded to take fashionistas through a journey of fashion trends extending back through several decades, with highlights including a ’60s-inspired burnt orange dress with white floral appliques attached, ice-blue satin disco trousers, a green tweed suit paired with extravagant butterfly-shaped glasses, gold lame gowns, star-studded suede coats, floral print peasant-style dresses, and 1940s-influenced pinstripe suits.

Gigi Hadid walked the runway in a pale blue dress barefoot, her sister Bella Hadid sported a pink knit top, lilac jeans, and a grey hat, while Kaia Gerber made a splash in a flowing floral dress with dramatic sleeves.

And Jacobs also appeared to reference the costumes in new HBO series Euphoria, especially in relation to neon brights and shiny tights, as well as the metallic eyeshadow Pat McGrath swiped on many of the models’ lids.

Brock Collection and Badgley Mischka also presented on the final day of New York Fashion Week.
