Supermodel Cindy Crawford has put the kibosh on her 10-year-old daughter's modeling career. Last month, Kaia made her modeling debut in a photo shoot for Versace's new children's line.
Originally, 45-year-old Cindy was thrilled that her beautiful daughter was chosen to be part of the first Young Versace Campaign. She said, "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. She added that she was present throughout the shoot, describing it as a "fantastic experience. I am so proud of her."
Cindy says it's fine if Kaia decides to pursue modeling later in life: "If she's 17 and wants to try it, of course, what can I say?"
"Not only has lil' Kaia inherited her Mom's gorgeous genes, it looks as if she's also picked up her Mom's confidence in front of the camera. Wearing highlights from the designer line, which caters to children up to the age of 12, she stares boldly at the lens with her hands in her pockets."
"Given that her mother was a muse to the late Gianni Versace in the Nineties, it seems Kaia was a natural choice for the label - and Mrs. Gerber (Cindy Crawford) could not be more proud that her daughter is following in her footsteps."
Versace opened its first boutique in Milan dedicated to Young Versace, which made its debut in Florence last June.
Designer duds for kids under 12? Ugh ... gawd. Modeling at age ten? Ugh, again. I'm glad Cindy let the child try it out, but got real and put it on hold so the kid has a chance to grow up first. There's plenty of time later in life to be part of the grown up working world.
