Kaia Gerber stole her mom's look in the latest cover of ELLE magazine, paying homage to the iconic cover Cindy Crawford did back in 1994.

Following her mom's footsteps, Kaia has quickly become one of the hottest models of her generation. The 20-year-old beauty is the cover girl for ELLE's December 2021/January 2022 issue.

Kaia posed in the same fashion Crawford did when she was the cover girl in '94. They even wore similar sweaters!

Kaia's Rise To Fame

Blessed with supermodel genes, Kaia's direction towards the fashion runways was pretty much inevitable.

She made her runway debut at the Calvin Klein catwalk just a couple of days after turning 16, which is the legal catwalk age. But, even before that, Kaia had already been turning heads.

Her first modeling gig was for Versace's junior line when she was 10 years old. At 13, Kaia was signed by IMG Models, three years younger than her mom Cindy, who landed a contract with Elite when she was 16.

Cindy belongs to the era of original supermodels in the 90s. Along with Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista and Claudia Schiffer, Crawford conquered the runways with her big, bouncy hair and trademark beauty mole.

Some of her most iconic works include her Revlon campaign and the sexy Pepsi commercial.

Nowadays, Cindy is still as relevant as ever, gracing various fashion magazines in her 50s. She married businessman Rande Gerber in 1998 after her divorce with Richard Gere.

The Apple Doesn't Fall Far


A couple of days ago, Cindy posted daughter Kaia's ELLE cover photo, along with a photo of her own magazine cover from 1994.

"Baby stole my look! @elleusa now and then ❤️ #FBF," Cindy captioned the post.

Wearing a navy blue cropped Ralph Lauren sweater with an American flag detail, Kaia posed with her hands tucked in her jeans' pockets, revealing her flat tummy and copying her mom's pose.

The photos are taken 27 years apart but both highlight the same timeless RL style.

Like Mother, Like Daughter

In an interview with People, the mother-daughter duo dished on what makes them alike, and it's more than just their looks.

“[Our look] is almost the least reason we’re alike,” Gerber said. “That’s what people see because they don’t know us, but we react to situations the same way. I think we’re always really strict on time.”

“Kaia definitely has more of my husband’s sense of humor. And taste in music, probably. Actually, no, you have your own. That’s where you’re a total original,” Cindy added in.
