Kaia Gerber did her first professional photo shoot for Junior Versace when she was 10 and made her professional catwalk debut a few days after her 16th birthday.

And on Thursday, at the Vogue: Forces Of Fashion event in New York, Cindy Crawford explained that she had no qualms at all about allowing her daughter to follow in her footsteps at such a young age.

‘I had no trepidation at all about saying yes to Kaia,’  she explained while taking part in the Vogue: Forces Of Fashion event in New York in October 2019. 

‘I felt comfortable and I was like, ‘Go for it, have fun and I’m always here if you have a question.”

As for some of the criticism she received for allowing her daughter to star modeling at such a young age, Cindy’s defense was that, thanks to social media, ‘everyone’s a model in their everyday life.’

As for Kaia, she has no issue with people wanting to compare her to her famous mom. 

‘If I have to be compared to anyone in the world, it’s the biggest compliment,’ she commented.
