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 thankful she never over-tweezed her eyebrows

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 shows off new ribcage tattoo

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.

Cindy Crawford fled her Malibu home during devastating wildfires

Cindy Crawford grabbed a few personal belongings before fleeing her Malibu home when the Woolsey Fire began raging nearby earlier this month (Nov18).

The blaze, one of two major fires to hit California in November, had a devastating effect on the area, with lots of people, including celebrities, losing their homes. There have also been more than 80 fatalities reported so far from the Woolsey and Camp fires.

While Cindy and husband Rande Gerber’s place was ultimately spared, she didn’t stick around when the flames got close.

“I’m not one to hang back with a fire hose,” she told C Magaizne. “You think, what do I need? I grabbed passports and birth certificates, some of my jewellery, a painting that my daughter (Kaia Gerber) had just done, and got on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway). I saw what looked like a tsunami of smoke coming over the mountains. It was ominous.

“We know at least 20 people who lost their houses. It’s a close community. Fortunately our friends are safe, and I think it’s a reminder to all of us that you are not the stuff you own. But stuff contains memories – that favourite Christmas dish you don’t know you were missing until you look for it.”

Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke both lost their houses in the fire, while Gerard Butler’s California pad was left badly damaged.

Cindy also wasn’t too far away when a gunman opened fire at the Borderline Bar and Grill, a popular student haunt in Thousand Oaks, killing 12, in early November.

“I’m so sad for this generation of kids that they have to hear about gun violence on a weekly basis,” Cindy, who also has son Presley, sighed. “I can’t imagine how their brains process it. We haven’t sat together yet and discussed it all as a family. It feels weird here – the energy is off in L.A. right now. We need to have that family dinner.”

Cindy Crawford stays up to date with current models thanks to daughter Kaia

Cindy Crawford loves how her model daughter keeps her clued up on the next generation of fashion stars.

Kaia Gerber, her 17-year-old daughter with husband Rande Gerber, has become one of the most successful models of recent years, and is a runway and campaign regular for the world’s most revered brands.

As well as sharing a passion for modelling with her teen daughter, Cindy is also kept in the fashion loop because of Kaia.

“In terms of the young models, I have a favourite, her name is Kaia,” she grinned to British Vogue. “But what’s been fun has been, before she was modelling, when she was 13, I was interested in who she liked and who she responded to. Of course, she looked up to Kendall (Jenner) and Gigi and Bella (Hadid), but also… I’m trying to think who else she loved, like Vittoria (Ceretti) is one of her close friends, I like Selena Forrest. It’s kind of cool being Kaia’s mum because I get to know the young models as well.”

Talking about her own mother Jennifer, Cindy revealed that they have an incredibly close relationship.

It wasn’t always the case though, with the icon admitting she would judge her stay-at-home mum when she was younger.

“Who do I put on a pedestal? Really, my mum, and I didn’t always. When I was young, my mum didn’t work and when I was young, I didn’t respect that, I was like, she’s just home, taking care of four kids and grocery shopping and cleaning the house,” the 52-year-old confessed. “She didn’t have a life that I aspire to. And also, I felt like my mum always would see the good side of everything and I was, ‘Urggh, she’s such a Pollyanna.’

“Only when I got older did I realise it’s hard to be… she’s choosing to be a positive person, because life throws curveballs at all of us all the time, not everything works out right.”

Kaia Gerber has been named as the new make-up ambassador for Yves Saint Laurent Beaute.

The model, who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, is one of the hottest young stars in the modelling industry right now and has walked the runway for big-name brands including Fendi, Chanel and Versace.

Kaia’s latest gig has seen her snapped up by YSL, and the teenager will be the face of the Rouge Volupte Shine moisturising lipstick from January (19), starring in a campaign shot by fashion photographer David Sims.

Speaking about the new honour, she told WWD: “To be the new face of YSL Beaute is an opportunity to write a new story full of fun, colour and make-up. I love the DNA of a brand that is so subversive, while being so luxurious and cool.”

In addition, Kaia will appear in advertising shots for the Touche Eclat concealer/highlighting pen and Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils.

She currently boasts a following of 3.8 million on her Instagram page, with that number increasing on an almost daily basis.

And when it comes to her responsibilities as a model, the stunning brunette makes sure she takes that part of the job seriously.

“I think these days, everything you do has to be measured with a degree of responsibility,” the 17-year-old mused. “If there are people who view me as a role model, I really hope to be able to create positive images and messages that inspire others to feel confident about the way they look, to look after themselves and basically be kind to themselves.”

Cindy Crawford: ‘It’s never too late to start taking care of your skin’

Cindy Crawford is adamant that it’s never too late to begin investing in skincare.

The supermodel continues to ooze good looks and glamour aged 52, but she’s keen to insist that such fortune isn’t only the result of genetics.

As the face of anti-ageing skincare line Meaningful Beauty, Cindy believes a stellar skincare routine is equally as important as we age.

“It’s never too early, and never too late, to start taking care of your skin,” she told Byrdie.com. “Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh (the French anti-ageing specialist with who she collaborated with to create the skincare line) taught me the daytime is about protecting your skin and then the nighttime is about restoring it.

“I have learned that it’s like working out. You work out once – you don’t really see a big difference. But if you work out regularly for years, you do. I think skincare is the same way. I’ve made taking care of my skin part of my routine.”

The mother-of-two divulged that she cleanses her skin in the shower every day and calls on serums for their “potency” to boost her skin’s glow power.

At night, she religiously takes her make-up off, thoroughly exfoliates her skin and uses a night cream with retinol to promote cell turnover.

Naturally, she recommends a number of her own products – including the Youth Activating Melon Serum and Environmental Protecting Moisturizer, both of which carry hefty price tags.

But Cindy insisted that investing in quality formulas does pay off in the long run.

“I’ve learned that’s where you want to spend the money – anything that goes on your skin. So skincare and foundation,” she smiled. “You can get a less expensive mascara, you can get a less expensive lip gloss or nail polish, but anything that’s actually on your skin is worth investing in.”

Kaia Gerber was ‘enchanted’ by her mother as a young girl

Kaia Gerber was totally “enchanted” by her mother Cindy Crawford when she was growing up.

The rising fashion star, who is the daughter of supermodel Cindy and her husband Rande Gerber, is fast becoming one of the most sought-after names in the business, having landed campaigns for the likes of Versace, Calvin Klein, Marc Jacobs and Omega.

While Kaia didn’t fully grasp the extent of Cindy’s career when she was a child, she has now described how she was always fascinated by her mum’s striking looks and fabulous wardrobe.

“When she was getting ready to go out in the evening, I used to follow her to her walk-in wardrobe to see which dresses she would choose. Watching her getting dressed was like being under a kind of spell. I was enchanted by her beauty,” she recalled to Vogue Italia. “You won’t believe it, but when I was little I didn’t know she was famous. I didn’t even know she was a model. For me she was just my mum, and it’s still a bit like that today.”

Kaia, who appears on the cover of the July issue of the fashion publication in a pink Valentino suit, went on to explain that she admires how Cindy has always managed to separate work and home life. She also abides by her parents’ advice for when it comes to juggling modelling gigs and her high school commitments.

“The rule is to make sure you never get too little sleep for too many days in a row,” the 16-year-old said. “Then there’s always the eagerly awaited return home, the place where you can let yourself go, sleep, get back on your feet and stay in bed. My mother has always advised me to be conscious of how lucky I am, especially with regard to travelling.”

While Kaia is exited to hitting the runway for big brands, she also spoke about the downside of entering modelling at a young age. For instance, she has to complete homework online and she often misses birthday parties for her friends and family.

“Let’s say that while I’m travelling, my home is mainly inside the telephone, thanks to Facetime. Having video access to my family has changed my life, because even if our schedules are totally messed up… it makes me feel as if I were there drinking coffee with them,” she smiled.
