Glamour. Apparently it runs in the genes. Take it from Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber: Crawford shared a side-by-side photo of her and Kaia's high school portraits, and not only do they look unbelievably alike, but they also both look like they're posing for the after picture of a skincare ad.
Crawford posted the photo on Instagram on Tuesday. On the left is Kaia's portrait, a traditional school headshot in front of a gray-blue background. The 16-year-old wears a black V-neck top and a delicate gold necklace, lets her middle-parted hair down around her shoulders, and opts for minimal makeup with just a dab of lip gloss. On the right is one of Cindy's actual high school yearbooks from the 1980s, in which she also dons a black top and dainty necklaces, wears her dark hair down and loose, and sports almost no makeup. "School pics, now and then," Cindy captioned the Insta post, which proves, once and for all, that Kaia is truly her mini-me.
And speaking of school — Kaia recently opened up to Teen Vogue about how she's putting her studies before modeling. "I’m a junior in high school, so that's technically what I do. Modeling is really what I do during my free time. It’s fun for me, so it doesn’t feel like work. I choose to do it," the 16-year-old said. "It’s definitely a lot of work, but because I appreciate them both so much, I don’t let that get to me. It’s what I want to be doing."
Smarts also apparently run in the genes. Crawford graduated high school as Valedictorian and received an academic scholarship to Northwestern University where she studied chemical engineering for a year before deciding to pursuit modeling full time instead.
