As one of the most sought after models in the world right now, the nearly-19-year old Kaia Gerber has modeled and walked for some of the biggest brands we know and love. With original supermodel mom Cindy Crawford and fellow model brother Presley, Kaia clearly has some great genes, but has solidified her place in the modeling world all on her own. The hard-working model has graced endless runways and campaigns, and has shown that she can rock any and every outfit. Now highly recognized for her effortlessly cool street style off the runway, we're here to celebrate the teen model's best off-duty, and a few iconic on-duty, looks, kicking off from when she was just a kid.
