Like mother, like daughter!

Not only is 10-year-old Kaia Gerber the spitting image of mom Cindy Crawford, but she’s decided to follow the supermodel into the family business.

Gerber is the new face of Young Versace, a new rock ‘n’ roll- inspired collection for boys and girls aged 0 – 12, that is debuting this spring.

“Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift. The camera really, really loves her,” said Donatella Versace, creative director of Versace.

“Having Cindy on-set for the shoot took me back to all the amazing Avedon shoots we worked on together. It was such a special treat watching Kaia walk in her mother’s footsteps!”

The campaign, which was shot by famed photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, features Gerber and several other young models wearing chic tops and bottoms featuring playful prints, bright colors, mixed patterns, as well as the brand’s iconic Greek key motif and Medusa head logo.

So how does Crawford feel about her daughter’s budding modeling career?

“I’m so thrilled that Kaia was chosen to be part of the first Young Versace Campaign,” she shared.

“I have so many fond memories of the times I spent with Gianni and Donatella. [And] being on-set with my daughter watching her in front of the camera was a fantastic experience. I am so proud of her.”
