12 Reasons Kaia Gerber Is the Next Kendall Jenner

Posted on

If you aren’t familiar with Kaia Gerber, consider this your formal introduction. The 14-year-old daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber is on the verge of supermodel stardom. In fact, she’s basically everywhere and her career reminds us of another famous model we love: Kendall Jenner.

Kaia has so much in common with Kendall, we compiled proof that Cindy’s mini-me is the next big model of the moment (beware Kenny!).

1. She Nails Model-Off-Duty Style

Kendall is known for her effortlessly cool jeans-and-a-tee #OOTD’s, and Kaia has clearly taken notes.

2. Her Name Begins with a K

A very important fact.

3. She’s Landing Big Designer Campaigns
From Alexander Wang to Roberto Cavalli, the model’s impressive résumé is longer than Kendall’s was at 14.

4. She’s Already in “The Squad”

Of course we’re referring to Taylor Swift’s gang, which Kendall is also a part of. So is Cindy Crawford, in case you forgot about her cameo in “Bad Blood.”

5. She’s Also in Harry Styles’ Inner Circle

They go on family lunch dates together, hang backstage at concerts and he even visits her at home. In fact, there’s more photos of Kaia and Harry then Kendall and Harry.

6. She’s Part of the Balmain Army

Just like Kim paved the way for her sister’s relationship with Olivier Rousteing, Cindy introduced her daughter to the designer. (She also landed a new campaign for the high-fashion brand!)

7. She Has Kendall’s 2012 Hair

Kaia’s gorgeous mane reminds us a lot of the long hair Kendall rocked before she walked runways all over the world.

8. She’s Graced the Pages of Teen Vogue

The gateway gig to landing Vogue, Kaia posed for a gorgeous spread in the magazine earlier this year. Kendall landed two covers for the publication when her career was starting to skyrocket in 2014.
