Like it or not: Kaia Gerber is currently the hottest in modeling. After a knockout show season for Spring 2018 and receiving Emmaneulle Alt’s seal of approval by gracing Vogue Paris, the daughter of Cindy Crawford flaunts her supermodel genes for the forthcoming edition of Love Magazine. The magazine has been teasing us for weeks for the upcoming Spring/Summer 2018 edition (available on newsstands February 5) and out of multiple previews, Kaia’s has us most excited for the issue to drop. Shot by photographic duo Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott and styled by Katie Grand, the 16-year-old does some serious late 70s/early 80s glam for the occasion, effortlessly channeling legendary model Gia Carangi.
New year with a new star channeling GIA with the most gorgeous KAIA for @thelovemagazine styled by @kegrand first time we met Kaia she was 10 years old and we photographed her for Versace kids adds she was the sweetest shy little girl and the moment we shot her I remember telling Cindy that she will be a star one day . Here we go @cindycrawford #mertandmarcus
The majority of our forum members were impressed with the young model and her resemblance to her famous mother, Cindy Crawford. “Kaia looks fantastic,” voiced apple at once.
“The Kaia cover is absolutely stunning. It’s definitely a tribute to Gia. I want a copy,” demanded liv4beauty.
“Kaia’s cover is amazing,” echoed 333101. “The closeup shot is so 80s and I really love that she’s emulating Gia Carangi! Really reminds me of a lot of her mother’s covers and that’s not a bad thing!”
As more previews appeared, everyone began to sing the magazine’s praises. “Kaia’s new shot is even better than the first one! Very glamorous,” voted Benn98.
Tigerrouge also showed Kaia some love also, saying, “If I can find a Kaia cover, I’d probably get this.”
“Over the years I’ve been vocal over how dreadful Love and Katie Grand have become but I am here for those Kaia Gerber previews! Wowza, she looks fantastic and there’s some serious Francesco Scavullo realness there, and I want MORE!” said vogue28.
But not everyone liked what they saw. “A teenager should not look older than her mother. That Kaia cover should just say Cindy,” critiqued mepps.
“Always thought Kaia looked more like Gia than like her mother. A lackluster version of Gia. This cover proves it. There’s nothing in her eyes, she’s completely empty. Gia had that innocence, sexuality and, many times, suffering in her eyes,” pointed out EstefaniaAbaddon.
