Like mother, like daughter! The Young Versace spring/summer 2012 campaign features 10-year old Kaia Gerber, the daughter of Cindy Crawford.
Well, you can definitely blame this one on genes.
Versace just revealed the face of their advertising campaign for the new Young Versace line, and it’s none other than 10-year-old Kaia Gerber, the gorgeous offspring of supermodel (and Gianna Versace muse) Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber.
"Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift. The camera really, really loves her," said Donatella Versace said in a statement. "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!"
Cindy seems just as excited to have her daughter follow in her glamorous footsteps. "There is something so very special about the House of Versace," Crawford said in a press release, according to The Huffington Post. "Being on set with my daughter, watching her in front of the camera was a fantastic experience. I am so proud of her."
The line, aimed at lucky (and affluent) little boys and girls up to age 12, will be available at the Versace Young boutique in Milan and in select stores.
Versace is just one of many high-end labels to tackle the childrens' wear market this past year. Lanvin, Stella McCartney and Diane von Furstenberg also announced plans to release lines for the little ones.
As Styleite pointed out, the best thing about this photo — besides Kaia's clear resemblence to her mother — is the fact that she's wearing socks with sandals. Can we expect a cozy summer sandal trend?
Kaia Gerber, daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, is quite the natural at modeling. Don't you agree?
