Since Kaia Gerber first graced the runway in 2017 for Raf Simons’s Calvin Klein 205W39NYC collection, the comparisons to her supermodel mother, Cindy Crawford, have come thick and fast. Fast-forward to today and Gerber has walked for multiple household-name brands, including Versace, Chanel and Valentino. She was crowned Model of the Year at the 2018 Fashion Awards, appeared on the October 2019 cover of British Vogue, and has fronted major campaigns for Celine, Calvin Klein and Marc Jacobs Daisy.
As the 20-year-old continues to ride the wave of her career highs, one thing has remained constant: her mum’s unwavering support. Whether they’re attending the same industry events, or posting selfies on social media, they’re the living embodiment of the phrase, like mother, like daughter.
Below, Vogue takes a closer look at all the times the duo has looked more like sisters than mother and daughter.
Same pose. Same outfit. Same everything.
They’re even the same height in a pair of heels.
Nothing says it better than “Mom genes” emblazoned across a white tee.
They even like to match their makeup.
Brown tonal waves? Both say yes.
“School pics, now and then,” Crawford captioned a throwback-inspired post on Instagram.
“I just don’t see the resemblance,” Gerber captioned this Instagram post.
They share matching side profiles, too.
Is this Kaia or Cindy? The stunning shot requires a double take.
Crawford wore a Versace bondage look to the MTV Awards in 1992; while Gerber wore a similar ensemble on her 18th birthday in 2019.
They both like wearing shades and carrying the latest issue of Vogue.
They even wear matching robes while on a spa break. “Pre-holiday wellness retreat! No phones, no problem,” wrote Crawford.
