Kaia Gerber is solidly off the runway as she social distances – the 18-year-old model and daughter to Cindy Crawford did, however, share a racy throwback to her FW2020 Prada appearance at Fashion Week this year via her recent Instagram story.
Having found herself slammed for appearing to frolic around with high-profile friends including Netflix star Tommy Dorfman, supermodel Cara Delevingne, and actress Ashley Benson amid the coronavirus pandemic, Kaia has since made headlines for starting an Instagram book club. The modeling career continues, though – at least, via the digital space.
Kaia’s Saturday stories showed a backstage moment, also shouting out the novel Instagram account from 24-year-old supermodel Gigi Hadid – the elder sister to Bella Hadid was responsible for the shot. Seen striking a provocative and foxy pose by a sign bearing her name, Kaia was flaunting her supermodel body in a co-ordinating two-piece look – a ribbed bra in olive shades matched sheer clingy pants revealing white underwear beneath as Kaia threw out come-hither vibes with a hip-placed hand and a direct, piercing gaze.
Kaia has made headlines amid the global pandemic, both for encouraging social distancing and sharing her home time, and, as The Daily Mail wrote, enjoying her “fair share of social interaction.” March images of the brunette included a grocery store trip with Kaia seen grabbing Clorox wipes and wearing vinyl gloves, but group interactions with the model’s high-profile pals raised eyebrows.
Kaia is, however, in quarantine with “13 Reasons Why” star Tommy Dorfman, also having delivered a home-set TikTok dance featuring friends Cara and Ashley.
Kaia fronted media outlets at the end of March for kicking off an Instagram book club, offering fans a little something to do while leading new lives from home. The star chose Irish novelist, Sally Rooney’s hit “Normal People” book to kick things off, also making an announcement of what fans can expect overall.
“Every week I’m gonna post a book to my stories and the following week I’ll jump on [Instagram Live]—sometimes with a friend, writer, [or] guest—so we can all talk about the book,” Kaia wrote, adding:
“Make sure to set yourself a reminder: The first conversation will be taking place this Friday at 5 p.m. PST.”
Kaia is still rising on Instagram, having 5.4 million followers. While fellow supermodels Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have 126 million and 52.2 million followers, respectively, Kaia has an edge on her competition. 2018 saw the model make headlines for having higher social media engagement than either supermodel – that’s more likes and comments than the Calabasas-based reality star and girlfriend to Zayn Malik.
Kaia’s Instagram is followed by celebrities including Billie Eilish, Gal Gadot, Hailey Biber, and Vanessa Hudgens, plus models Kendall and Gigi.
