Kaia Gerber wasn't sure why her mom was getting more attention than Disney characters!
"I think it was only on my eighth birthday, at Disneyland, that I started to understand what was going on," Gerber reveals. "I wanted to take pictures with the princesses, and everyone wanted to take pictures with her!"
Since then, Gerber says that her parents have helped her stay down to earth by instilling self-assurance.
In addition to her mom, Gerber cites friend Karlie Kloss as a roll model in her life.
“I really look up to Karlie. She’s broken all the rules of what a model should be and uses her platform to benefit others," she says. "All my icons I look up to as people, not just their work. ‘Iconic’ is not a word I use lightly. You have to earn it."
Teen Vogue’s Volume III, the Icons issue hits newsstands on Aug. 22.
