Cindy Crawford's 10-year-old daughter makes modeling debut
Cindy Crawford's 10-year-old daughter made her modeling debut for Versace's children's line, Young Versace.
Kaia, who is the supermodel's daughter with husband Rande Gerber appears in ads for the company's inaugural collection, which will cater to fashionable pre-teens. The first Young Versace boutique recently opened in Milan, Italy.
Crawford was considered to be a muse to the late Gianni Versace and said she was "thrilled" that her daughter could also model for the fashion house.
"I'm so thrilled that Kaia was chosen to be part of the first Young Versace Campaign," Crawford said in a press release. "I have so many fond memories of the times I spent with Gianni and Donatella. There is something so very special about the House of Versace."
Donatella Versace spoke highly of the young model, pointing out that her daughter inherited more than her mother's good looks.
"Like her mother, Kaia has a very special gift. The camera really, really loves her," Versace said in a statement. "Having Cindy on-set for the shoot took me back to all the amazing [Richard] Avedon shoots we worked on together. It was such a special treat watching Kaia walk in her mother's footsteps!"
Crawford, 45, and Gerber, 49, have been married since 1998 and have two children - son Presley, 12, and daughter Kaia. Crawford was previously married to actor Richard Gere for almost four years. They have no children together.
Crawford, known for her signature facial mole, was most popular in the 1990s and has graced the cover of magazines such as People, Vogue, W and Playboy. In 1993, Crawford, then 27 and a Revlon spokesmodel, appeared on the cover of People's "Most Beautiful" issue (see which celebrities were named "Most Beautiful" over the past 21 years).
She quit modeling full time in 2000 but still occasionally appears in ads. In recent years, she has made guest appearances on shows such as "According To Jim" and "Wizards of Waverly Places." She also launched her own home furnishing line and spends time doing charity work.
