Cindy, the mother, therefore gave the witness to her daughter, since it was that same year when she began working on advertising campaigns and made her first forays into fashion shows. Just two years later, she was awarded the Model of the Year Award at the British Fashion Awards.
Currently, and with only 20 years that she turns today, there is no parade of the main brands in the world of luxury in which Kaia Gerber is not present, no campaign or magazine cover. In fact, at 18 she got Vogue's 'The Big Four', that is, having starred in the cover of the American, British, French and Italian editions of the fashion bible. Only one model achieved it with fewer years: Karolina Kurkova at 17.
Kaia shares the catwalk with greats like Bella Hadid and her sister Gigi, Joan Smalls, Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner, Chrissy Teigen, Hailey Baldwin or Irina Shayk. A somewhat homogeneous group, nothing to do with the one her mother formed in the 90s, the one known as the first supertops.
And it is that these women -Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Tajana Patitz, Claudia Schiffer and Helene Christensen, in addition to Crawford- went a step further and became authentic characters. Immortalized by Peter Lindbergh, they were the first models with their own names.
Comparisons are hateful and for tastes are the colors, Kaia and Cindy, Cindy and Kaia. The two represent the bodies that were all the rage in the 90s, one and the other today. Her mother was the prototype of a voluptuous woman, with abundant wavy hair, a huge smile and a firm step on the catwalk.
Kaia, however, has practically no curves, she walks serious in the shows so that the spectators focus on the clothes and not on her, she has short and straight hair, and she has not inherited that mole on her mouth that was the saint and sign of his mother.
Two decisive careers for the world of fashion. Only the future will tell which of the two has reached higher.
