Early life[]

Kaia Jordan Gerber was born on September 3, 2001, in Los Angeles, California. She is the younger of two children born to supermodel Cindy Crawford[1] and businessman Rande Gerber.[2][3] She has an older brother, Presley (b. 1999), who is also a model.[4] Her father is of Russian Jewish descent.[5] Her mother, who is of German, English, French, and Danish ancestry, is a Christian.[6][7] When she was 10, Gerber landed her first modeling gig with Versace's junior line, Young Versace. Gerber took online classes at Malibu High School.[8]

In a 2018 interview, she stated "my dad is Jewish and my mom is Christian so we grew up doing both; we call it Christmas Chrismukah. I love learning about both of those sides of my life. We’d do Passover, Passover dinner and Yom Kippur. I love learning all of that, and learning the cooking."[7][9][10]

Career[]

Gerber made her acting debut at 15 in Sister Cities as the young version of Carolina.[11] Gerber made her runway debut for Raf Simons's Calvin Klein Collection at 16 years old in 2017, and then walked for fashion houses such as Marc Jacobs, Burberry, Alexander Wang, Coach, Prada, Chanel, Fendi, Miu Miu, Max Mara, Givenchy, Bottega Veneta, Stella McCartney, Isabel Marrant, Alberta Ferretti, Loewe, Chloé, Sacai, Michael Kors, Moncler, JW. Anderson, Longchamp, Tom Ford, Salvatore Ferragamo, Ports1961, Lanvin, Anna Sui, Moschino, Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Valentino, and Versace, alongside her mother, during 2018 Spring Fashion Week.

Gerber has made editorials and has been on the cover of fashion magazines, including The Love Magazine, i-D, Teen Vogue and Pop Magazine, etc. as well as different covers and international editions of Vogue, including Vogue Paris, Vogue Japan, Vogue Italia, Vogue British, Vogue India, Vogue China, Vogue Magazine, and "The Book edition" for Vogue Netherlands with her mother in Winter 2016.

Copperfield Crawford Gerber

Gerber and the rest of her family backstage in Las Vegas with David Copperfield after his show in March 2016 where he'd sawed Gerber in half.

On March 23, 2016, during a family vacation to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon, Gerber and her family attended magician David Copperfield's show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. In the mid-1990s, her mother had occasionally stood in for her friend and fellow model Claudia Schiffer as Copperfield's guest assistant when Schiffer was unavailable due to other work commitments. Having invited Gerber and her mother to join him on stage, Copperfield performed his Clearly Impossible version of the sawing in half illusion on Gerber. Commenting later on the experience, Gerber said "I knew that, when she was working with him, David used to saw my mom in half and chop her head off with a Guillotine. So it was kind of interesting to find out what it had been like for her. And I've got to admit that it was a lot of fun to do, even if it was strange and a bit scary to feel the saw slicing through my waist, knowing that it really was cutting me in half." Copperfield later invited Gerber and her family for a private tour of his magic museum, during which he performed additional illusions on Gerber and her mother, including guillotining Gerber and sawing her in half in a number of different versions of the trick.

In Spring 2018, she appeared in campaigns for Versace, Calvin Klein, and Saint Laurent fall/winter. In 2018, she and Sofia Mechetner led the campaign for Marc Jacobs's fragrance Daisy. In the same year, she was the star of the Chanel spring handbags campaign photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.[13] and Valentino[14] at the same time.

In 2018, Gerber collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld to create the KarlxKaia collection,[15] her first collection. In 2019, Gerber starred in Jimmy Choo's[16] spring/summer and fall/winter campaigns, the Stella McCartney spring campaign and the Fendi spring campaign.She also debuted as the new face of advertising campaigns and brand ambassador for YSL beauty.[17][18] In 2020, Gerber starred in the Louis Vuitton "Twist bag" spring summer advertising campaign photographed by Craig McDean.[19]

On August 14, 2020, Daily Front Row listed Gerber as one of a group of high-profile investors who purchased W magazine, a fashion magazine.[20] Gerber appeared in the tenth season of the FX horror anthology American Horror Story, as well as its spinoff, American Horror Stories.[21][22] In 2021, Gerber appeared on her first American Vogue cover, featuring on their June/July issue, and again on their September issue.[23][24] In 2022, she was cast to recur in the Apple TV+ miniseries Mrs. American Pie.[25]
