Kaia Gerber‘s latest Instagram update brought a bikini and the sun – in a slightly unusual way. The 18-year-old daughter to supermodel Cindy Crawford wrapped up her Wednesday with a quick selfie, and it was a surprisingly bright one for a girl who was indoors.
The photo showed Kaia snapping herself from below as she modeled her slender frame in a leopard-print bikini top that showed off her small tattoo. The brunette had managed to snap the lens at the perfect moment – natural sunlight pouring onto her makeup-free face had caught a full spectrum.
Yup, there was a rainbow. The model even used a rainbow emoji to caption her pic.
Kaia’s fans were all over this update. The bare-faced beauty’s post had racked up over 335,000 likes by the time the sun rose on Thursday morning – model and wife to Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin even left Kaia a like.
Fan comments poured in.
“Just gorgeous,” one wrote.
“So lovely, Kaia,” another said.
Perhaps bizarrely for some, one user let the model know that rainbows wasn’t their jam (although there was plenty of love for Kaia).
“Not a fan of rainbows but this looks good on u,” they wrote.
Kaia made major headlines towards the end of last year for embarking on a relationship with SNL star Pete Davidson. The 25-year-old ex to Ariana Grande was spotted brunching with Kaia in October 2019, with Pete then being spotted leaving the model’s apartment.
A giant, giant poolside makeout session in Miami put this couple’s PDA abilities on the map, with the two also being spotted holding hands in the street.
Having dated women including Kate Beckinsale and Margaret Qualley since his 2019 split from Ariana, Pete has somewhat of a womanizer reputation – oh, and one of being a lucky guy.
Photos of Cindy and Rande Gerber “freaking out” outside Kaia’s apartment emerged just after Christmas 2019 – they’re reportedly not too keen on Pete and insanely worried for their daughter.
Rande was allegedly heard speaking about someone “upstairs” (possibly Pete).
“He’s got scratched out eyes. His face was like scared as if someone or a camera was on him. His eyes are very… and he’s like freaking out,” Rande reportedly said.
Meanwhile, a source told E! News:
“Cindy and Rande wanted to be there for Kaia and supportive of her. They are very involved and loving parents and they would do anything for her. They stepped in to try and guide her and to help Pete through a difficult time.”
Kaia is way less in-your-face than some of her celebrity modeling peers. She’s also younger. The model has a way to go before reaching fame on Kendall Jenner or Bella Hadid’s level, but this girl is going places.
Kaia recently featured in a high-end photo shoot while wearing a JW ANDERSON dress. She also walked the runway for luxurious brands including Givenchy in 2019. The model is currently fronting hip designer Marc Jacobs’ fragrances, specifically the Daisy scent.
