Kaia Gerber stepped out into the spotlight on Wednesday night as the official host of the 27th Annual LA Art Show — and she stunned on the red carpet looking like the twin of supermodel mom Cindy Crawford. The charitable evening was a major event for the 20-year-old model as she confidently carves out her own identity in Hollywood.
Gerber dazzled in her old Hollywood style (remember her outfit at the Met Gala?) with a sparkling black sequined dress by Celine. The white collar and cuffs and gold buttons added chic details to the overall look, which was matched with soft, wavy hair and natural, yet glam, makeup. She looked every inch her mother’s daughter while still adding her own spin to her life in the limelight.
The blossoming fashionista has been somewhat of a reluctant star due to her mother’s fame, so she’s taken the time to let her work speak for itself. “I didn’t want my modeling to be overshadowed by being a celebrity, or being some personality,” she explained to I-D in 2020. “There’s only so many times I can talk about my beauty routine, or the advice I got from my mum about modeling. It’s boring. I want to do what models do, and that’s modeling.”
Just a few years later, it’s evident that Gerber feels comfortable striking out on her own — and the entertainment industry is interested in what she represents. This is likely the start of big things to come for the young star, who is poised to become a second-generation muse for the industry that embraced her mother three decades ago.
