Supermodel Cindy Crawford is an icon to the fashion world. From her unofficial title of Most Beautiful Woman in the World for the entire 1990s decade—not to mention her stint as the ORIGINAL host of MTV’s House of Style—she defined an era with her unconventional mole-infused beauty and athletic poise. Now it looks as if she’s ready to hand the torch to her 10-year-old daughter, Kaia, who was just photographed for the new Young Versace campaign. All we can say is, like mother, like daughter, because HOLY MOLY, look at those insanely long legs! Geeeeeez. It might be totally inappropriate to discuss the elongated ligaments of a child, but purely from a pretend modeling scout standpoint, this little lady looks ready for her close-up, Mr. DeMille. But, really, let’s talk about the clothes in this shot for a mo’, please. Pure and simple, we want this outfit.
Versace’s recent resurrection, courtesy of its H&M collaboration and dedicated devotion from one Lady Gaga, has put the House of V back into the mainstream. It only makes sense to start a children’s line and have it fronted by the preternaturally beautiful offspring of one of Gianni Versace’s most celebrated muses. Shot wearing the cutest black and white separates adorned in the signature Versace square swirl, we think the line looks promising. We’re into the idea of kids wearing motorcycle jackets, especially when paired with kicky yet ladylike skirts and a graphic white blouse. We’re not moms here by any means, but Kaia’s skirt could stand to be lengthened just a tad (*pushes glasses up nose*) purely for the sake of modesty for one so young, and we’re not super thrilled by the idea of black socks under black sandals. BUT other than that, Kaia is a lovely young lady with a truly sensational mane of hair (which might remind us, just a tad, of a 1970s Brooke Shields in Pretty Baby). We wonder if this is merely a onetime modeling campaign or if Kaia is poised to follow in her mother’s footsteps and have a similar career. We also wonder if her brother, Presley, who looks EXACTLY like Mama C, will ever take a turn in front of the lens. Seriously, these kids are ridiculously photogenic, right?
