Fashion magazines all over the world talk about her, designers dream of seeing her on their catwalks. The whole world is eager to work with the 20-year-old daughter of the iconic supermodel of the 90s.
At 20, Gerber has a reason to be proud of herself: shooting for Miu Miu and Alexander Wang, work for Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Chanel, Prada and Versace, covers for Vogue and Love. Karl Lagerfeld himself adores her and she repeatedly receives offers of cooperation.
Over the past year, her career has developed exponentially. But the girl does not allow her sudden popularity to overwhelm her. She still goes to school, plays with her friends, thinks about her future and listens to her mother’s advice. Kaya realized at an early age that she would be a model. And when she grew up, it became clear that the girl could follow in the footsteps of the famous mother. In addition to her beautiful appearance, she received natural photogenicity from her parent.
At the age of 10, Donatela Versace invited Kaia to a photo shoot for the Versace children’s line, giving the world a glimpse of the future star. And then her photo shoot was a huge success. “After the shooting was over, I could only think about how it was,” the girl recalls. Three years later, Kaya signed a contract with IMG Models, a well-known fashion agency, and later appeared on the cover of LOVE magazine. Although she was still very young to walk the catwalk, the sophistication and charm of our heroine already attracted the attention of photographers working with her.
Kaia made her runway debut last year. She became a shining star at fashion weeks in the US and Europe, eclipsing many top models and attracting the attention of the entire fashion world. It was difficult when she and her mother took to the podium in Milan. The new Versace SS18 collection featured a new generation of models including Kaia Gerber. The highlight of the show was the appearance of supermodels of the 90s generation, one of which was Cindy Crawford.
Kaya always respected and listened to her mother, took her example. The daughter considers her mother a professional and absorbs her knowledge and her philosophy. Cindy advised her to always do only what she wants, follow her instincts. There is something that the mother did not teach her daughter – to walk the catwalk. Gerber smiles: “Of course, I watch my mother at work, but at home we don’t walk down the corridor like on a catwalk.”
Despite her success, studies always come first for the young beauty. She once confessed: “I want to study criminal psychology in college because it is a very interesting field. I don’t know what will come of it, but I love learning new things and surprising people.” That’s for sure, Kaya will surprise us again and again.
