Kendall Jenner recently photographed Kaia Gerber, the teenage daughter of Cindy Crawford, for LOVE Magazine and has gushed about working with her idol’s offspring.
The 20 year old model found the shoot a hypnagogic experience because she has always admired the 14 year old’s mother and couldn’t comprehend she was working with her fashion icons child.
Speaking to LOVE magazine about the recent partnership, Kendall Jenner said: “This was so cool for me because it really does come full circle: her mom was my idol; I’m shooting my idol’s daughter.”
Kendall Jenner has revealed she has become a fan of Cindy Crawford’s brood since the pair collaborated with one another.
She explained: “I picked Kaia because I think she’s amazing and beautiful. I’ve gotten to know her a bit and she really is such a great young girl with such a good head on her shoulders. I think she has a very bright future. And for me to be able to say in the future ‘I shot the young Kaia Gerber’ will be so cool!’
“You could say I’m a fan of hers, and I would love to see her succeed.”
And Kaia has confessed she enjoyed working with the Estée Lauder ambassador. She said: “Working with Kendall was effortless, it just felt like two friends hanging out. Kendall told me that my mom is one of the people she looks up to most, and it’s cool to see it come full circle because Kendall is a role model for me.”
LOVE’s Editor-in-Chief Katie Grand explains how the 10-page story, entitled ‘American Beauties,’ came about: “I’d liked some of her [Kendall Jenner’s] Instagram posts where she had obviously ‘composed’ the images more thoughtfully than an average snap, so I asked her to take some pictures for the issue. She jumped at the chance, saying she wanted to photograph and style her friend Kaia Gerber. Kaia’s mum Cindy Crawford did the hair and make-up.”
