Presley Gerber has denied getting another tattoo on his face.

The 20-year-old model, the son of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, came under fire from fans in February when he got the word “MISUNDERSTOOD” tattooed on his left cheekbone, and on Tuesday, it appeared that he had added a second one, of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ logo, on his right cheek.

However, after receiving backlash from his followers for getting more ink on his face, Presley took to his Instagram Stories and insisted the tattoo wasn’t real.

“It was a filter lol (laugh out loud) damn,” he wrote alongside a selfie which showed him without the second tattoo. “Also, I don’t ‘want to be hood’ wtf (what the f**k) u don’t know me chill I’m grateful if I wanted to I could be posting money n s**t but I don’t so stfu (shut the f**k up) please or imma delete my gram it stressful (sic).”

Presley, who has starred in campaigns for the likes of HUGO, Calvin Klein, and Topshop, got his ‘Misunderstood’ design from New York-based tattoo artist Jonathan ‘JonBoy’ Valena.

After fans criticised his decision, he said in an Instagram Live video, “If I thought this was going to ruin my face or I didn’t want this, I wouldn’t have done it. I think that’s a pretty obvious thing… It says misunderstood, because that’s how I felt my entire life.”

He addressed critics of his tattoo more recently on his Instagram Stories by writing, “Most and a lot of people can get a face lifts, change genders, lip injections, etc and it’s offensive to say anything in today’s day in age (sic). But I get a little face tattoo and now people love to hate.”

Kaia Gerber has landed her first U.S Vogue cover photoshoot.

The model, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, has been tapped to appear alongside Adut Akech and Ugbad Abdi on the front of the April 2020 issue of the publication.

Titled Beauty without Borders, the edition is focused on celebrating models from 26 different nations, including Fran Summers, Anok Yai, Liu Wen, and Vittoria Ceretti, and accordingly, Kaia could not be more thrilled to be in the mix.

“My first american vogue cover!” she captioned a photo of the cover on her Instagram page. “@voguemagazine april issue by the endlessly inspiring @tylersphotos. words cannot describe what this moment means to me, and to share it with women who empower me every day makes it even more special @iamugbad @adutakech I feel so lucky! thank you to everyone who made this happen! girl power (sic).”

Previously, Kaia appeared on the cover of the April 2016 issue of Paris Vogue alongside her supermodel mother and fronted the October 2019 cover of British Vogue.

The new photoshoot was helmed by Tyler Mitchell, with the models styled by Camilla Nickerson.

And in an accompanying article, the brunette beauty opened up about how she wants to use her public platform and large social media following to inspire young people to educate themselves about politics.

“With all the information that’s out there, we can’t claim ignorance anymore,” the 18-year-old insisted. “My generation sees it as their duty to educate themselves, to speak up – we won’t be silenced by anyone.

“When you have a big platform, it seems irresponsible not to use it for good.”

Kaia Gerber has shared a candid social media post about the realities of Fashion Month.

The model, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, has appeared in 24 runway shows over the past four weeks, including in presentations for the likes of Versace, Chloe, Bottega Veneta, Givenchy, Chanel, Alexander McQueen, and Miu Miu.

But to mark the end of the intense month, Kaia took to Instagram on Thursday to upload a slideshow of images with the caption, “Highlights from the last month.”

To begin, she posted a meme from the U.S. version of The Office which reads, “If I don’t have some cake soon, I might die,” a selfie of herself on a plane wearing a face and eye mask, and a close-up image of a pair of false eyelashes next her belly button.

Elsewhere, the 18-year-old shared a photo of the five painful-looking raw blisters on her right ankle and heel, a snap of two dressers trying to outfit her in a black Latex look from the Saint Laurent show, as well as a fun backstage Polaroid in which her head appeared to be out of proportion from her body.

Accordingly, the post soon racked up over 200,000 likes and caught the attention of her celebrity friends.

Alexander Wang wrote, “This is the kinda content we live for,” stylist Katie Grand commented, “Ouch,” and TV personality Lisa Rinna added: “THE GLAMOROUS LIFE!” along with a heart emoji.

Yet, most of Kaia’s five million followers were mostly worried about her blisters, with one remarking, “My God what happened? That must’ve hurt…. just wear sandals for a while!”

Presley Gerber has responded to backlash over his new face tattoo.

The 20-year-old model, the son of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, posted a video on Instagram last week which showed him getting the word “MISUNDERSTOOD” tattooed across his right cheekbone by New York-based tattoo artist Jonathan ‘JonBoy’ Valena.

The fresh ink didn’t go down well many of Presley’s followers, who questioned why he would “ruin” his face with the design. One user wrote, “Why would you ruin your pretty face like that? Isn’t THAT the money maker?”

Now, Presley has addressed the criticism in an Instagram Live video, in which he made it clear that he had no regrets over his new tattoo.

“If I thought this was going to ruin my face or I didn’t want this, I wouldn’t have done it. I think that’s a pretty obvious thing,” he declared, according to New York Post’s Page Six. “It says misunderstood, because that’s how I felt my entire life.”

He reportedly grew increasingly upset about the negative comments and said, “Look at these f**king haters out here… F**k you if you don’t like it.”

His girlfriend, model Cameron Rorrison, also interjected, “His parents love it, by the way.”

Presley, who has starred in campaigns for the likes of HUGO, Calvin Klein, and Topshop, already has quite an extensive tattoo collection. He has floral artwork on the backs of both hands, words written across his fingers and multiple small designs on his neck, as well as his sister Kaia Gerber’s name on his left arm.

In January, he got the word “HAHA” written across his fingers, with one letter on each digit of his left hand, when he visited tattoo artist Evan Kim with Kaia.

Presley Gerber has debuted a dramatic new face tattoo.

The 20-year-old model, the son of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, uploaded a video on Instagram on Friday of him getting the inking from New York-based tattoo artist Jonathan ‘JonBoy’ Valena and then shared a picture of him with JonBoy after the session with the caption, “Thanks homie @jonboytattoo.”

The tattoo artist posted a close-up picture of his work on his Instagram page, showing that Presley had got the word “MISUNDERSTOOD” in capital letters inked along his right cheekbone.

Sharing the same photo of him posing with Presley, JonBoy preemptively apologised to the supermodel by writing in the caption, “Sorry mom.”

Many of Presley’s followers on Instagram questioned why he would “ruin” his face with the design. One user wrote, “Why would you ruin your pretty face like that? Isn’t THAT the money maker?”

In January, Kaia and Presley paid a visit to tattoo artist Evan Kim and had a joint tattoo session. Kaia, 18, came away with a small flower bouquet on her wrist, along with interlocking arms in the shape of a heart on her right shoulder, while Presley got the word “HAHA” written across his fingers, with one letter on each digit of his left hand.

Kaia Gerber can’t always tell herself apart from Cindy Crawford in photos

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.'”

British Vogue’s Edward Enninful is happy to see Kaia Gerber “in the trenches” with other models.

The rising fashion star, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, has already landed campaigns for the likes of Versace, Jimmy Choo, and Karl Lagerfeld.

British Vogue editor-in-chief Enninful also tapped Gerber to be on the cover of the October 2019 issue of the publication, and in an accompanying article, praised the model’s commitment and professionalism.

“That Kaia has become one of the brightest faces in modelling is a personal delight to me,” he wrote. “I have known Cindy Crawford, her supermodel mother, since the ’90s, so it’s wonderful to now work with her daughter, who is as driven, hardworking and beautiful as Cindy is. It always pleases me that, every season, despite coming from privilege, I see Kaia in the trenches with the other models, doing show after show, always on time and with a kind word for everyone. That’s the way to do it.”

In the cover image, Gerber poses in a black and white ensemble from Valentino. Guido Palau and Pat McGrath were behind her hair and make-up, Joe McKenna was the stylist, Jin Soon Choi was in charge of the manicure, with Steven Meisel helming the photoshoot.

And in a post sharing the news on her Instagram page, Gerber commented that the prestigious gig was the “best” birthday present, as she celebrates turning 18 on 3 September.

“October issue of @britishvogue by #stevenmeisel is out! thank you @edward_enninful for the best birthday present, and to everyone involved #joemckenna, @guidopalau, @patmcgrathreal, and @jinsoonchoi,” she gushed.

The October issue of British Vogue hits newsstands on 6 September.

Cindy Crawford is grateful she was never tempted to over-tweeze her eyebrows as a young model.

The supermodel was one of the stars who dominated the fashion scene in the 1990s, and along with the likes of Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, and Linda Evangelista, became part of the group of catwalk stars which crossed over into mainstream celebrity.

While thin brows were a major trend in the mid-’90s, in a new beauty tutorial for Vogue.com, Cindy shared that she is thankful that she always kept plucking to a minimum.

“Thank God I did not over-tweeze my brows when I was young, as I still have pretty good eyebrows!” she smiled while demonstrating she fills in her brows with a brown pencil. “One of my lessons that I’ve said to (my daughter) Kaia is, ‘Don’t over-tweeze your eyebrows – you will regret it later!’ Fortunately, that bushy look is in now, so she hasn’t been tempted yet!”

While Cindy is happy to pass on her best beauty tips to Kaia, who she shares with husband Rande Gerber, the 17-year-old fashion star also has lessons to impart. For instance, Kaia will offer her advice on new make-up techniques.

“Sometimes, to be honest with you, I do learn tricks from Kaia. I think the amazing thing about the young generation is stuff like this. If she wants to learn how to do a cateye, she learns. She just YouTubes it, and all of a sudden, she comes out (and says), ‘Oh look, I tried this new look today.’ And then I’ll be like, ‘Wait, how did you do that?’ And she’ll show me,” the 53-year-old explained.

For her daily beauty regime, Cindy will prepare her skin with a serum from her Meaningful Beauty range and some eye cream, and once that has soaked in, will apply two different concealers and some of her favourite By Terry foundation.

But the biggest lesson the brunette beauty has found when it comes to her go-to look is that less is always more.

“Definitely I have found as I’ve gotten older, I wear way less make-up. I would say that’s the biggest evolution for me which is kind of counter-intuitive, but that also means that taking care of your skin is more important ’cause you’re not covering it up with make-up,” she smiled.

Cindy Crawford’s son arrested

Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber’s model son Presley kicked off 2019 in trouble with the law following a weekend DUI arrest.

The 19 year old was pulled over by police officers in Beverly Hills, California early on Sunday (30Dec18) for speeding in his Tesla.

TMZ sources claim he failed a field sobriety test, was booked for driving under the influence (DUI), and released without bail.

It’s not clear how much the teenager had had to drink, but in the state of California there is zero tolerance for underage drivers who drink.

If convicted, Presley’s driver’s license will be suspended for at least a year.

The teen’s lawyer, Scott Spindel, tells the outlet his client has no criminal record and has never been arrested, adding, “Presley Gerber takes this very seriously and is taking the necessary steps to address the allegations.”

Like his little sister Kaia, Presley has made a big splash in the modelling world in the past 18 months – the IMG agency pin-up has appeared in campaigns for Calvin Klein, Dolce & Gabbana and Paris Vogue, among other big names.

He also joined Duckie Thot, Dilone, Birgit Kos, Cara Taylor, Adonis Bosso, Sofia Mechetner, and Gigi and Bella Hadid’s brother Anwar for Topshop’s new It campaign after the brand’s bosses insisted they’d selected the next big things on the style scene.

“We’ve called the campaign Topshop It to introduce our customers to a new kind of expression,” David Hagglund, creative director of Topshop and Topman, told Vogue last year. “Topshop It will mean different things to different people, but to us it means always experimenting, pushing boundaries, staying true to our roots and taking it to the top.”

Kaia Gerber has taken to social media to show off her latest piece of body art.

The model, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, uploaded a photo of herself resting in a bikini on a sunbed on Wednesday (26Dec18), and in the pose, she displays the ornately designed tattoo on the right side of her ribcage.

Kaia did not share any further details about her new inking, though she added the cryptic caption, “The holidays will do that to you.”

And it seems that the tattoo is pretty fresh, as the 17-year-old did not appear to have the design when she attended The Fashion Awards 2018 in London earlier this month.

For the event, where she was crowned Model of the Year, she sported a stunning black and silver side-baring gown from Alexander McQueen.

In spite of her age, Kaia is no stranger to tattoos. In October, she shared a selfie on her Instagram page in which she flaunted a tattoo on her inner arm, with the cursive writing appearing to spell out her middle name – Jordan.

Tattoo artist Rafael Valdez took credit for the model’s first inking, and wrote alongside a snap of their session on Instagram, “Fun session with @kaiagerber and my man @presleygerber always a good time!”

Rafael’s other celebrity clients include the likes of model Sofia Richie, and music stars Rita Ora and Iggy Azalea.

Previously, Kaia has given her Instagram fans a glimpse at what appears to be a rocket ship motif on her inner leg.

And it is not only the brunette beauty who is a fan of tats; her 19-year-old brother Presley has a number of inkings, including his sister’s name in cursive on his arm.
