Kaia Gerber clocked herself over 100,000 likes in under 45 minutes today, taking to Instagram with an eye-catching set of bikini snaps showing her in a swimming pool. The 18-year-old model and daughter to Cindy Crawford has mostly been making headlines for her COVID-19 Instagram book club and double-whammy puppy fostering – Sunday bucked the trend, though, as the new Louis Vuitton face showed off her bikini body.
It’s worth noting that 2018 saw Kaia make headlines for having higher social media engagement than both Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid. That’s more likes and comments, both of which came in fast today.
Kaia’s photo-heavy update – keep scrolling for more – showed multiple images from the same setting. The model was face down in the water, seen glistening as sunlight caught her supermodel frame – a skimpy black bikini with a cheeky thong finish showed off the teen’s killer legs, toned back, and peachy rear as she swam.
Photos included Kaia shot full length, plus some focusing on her lower and upper half – regardless, the stunner’s 5.5 million followers were digging it, with two celebrity likes coming in before the post was 60 minutes old.
Comments threw Kaia the unequivocal thumbs-up.
“Just like a mermaid,” one fan wrote.
“Angelic,” another said.
“Imagine looking like this,” a third wrote.
Celebrity likes also came in from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna, plus deceased “Fast & Furious” actor Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow. Meadow also replied: “my girl.”
The update did, however, generate a damning comment:
“Living the rich life, thanks for sharing how well you resonate with the real America,” the user wrote. The comment comes amid Kaia appearing to make genuine efforts to connect with fans amid the global pandemic, also encouraging animal fostering via The Labelle Foundation.
Kaia has fronted media outlets over the past weeks for her high-profile quarantine friends. The model has signed up to the TikTok trend, with videos showing her joined by supermodel Cara Delevingne, actress Ashley Benson, plus “13 Reasons Why” star Tommy Dorfman – the openly gay and non-binary actor has somewhat of a BFF status with Kaia Gerber, with their platonic relationship making headlines earlier this year as Kaia split from 26-year-old comedian boyfriend Pete Davidson.
Kaia has also made quarantine headlines on the style front, having recently unveiled new blonde hair.
Kaia has regularly been shouting out The Labelle Foundation responsible for furnishing her with two foster puppies. Calling one “my three week-old baby Angel,” Kaia has been sharing snaps of herself cozying up to the canines – a popular one saw the model strip down to a leopard-print bikini as she reclined in the shade.
Kaia also boasts an impressive celebrity following on her Instagram. Her account is kept tabs on by stars including supermodel Kendall Jenner, actress Bella Thorne, singer Billie Eilish, and Justin Bieber’s wife Hailey.
