Kaia Gerber or Cindy Crawford?
The 15-year-old daughter of the supermodel recently collaborated with celebrity photographer Brian Bowen Smith for a stunning new photo shoot, and at first glance, Kaia could totally pass as a younger version of her famous mama!
Kaia's undeniable beauty was perfectly captured in a black-and-white snapshot titled "Mother." The picture was inspired by one of Cindy's most famous shoots with late legendary photographer Herb Ritts, who introduced Smith to a career in photography before he died in 2002.
The print is part of a larger series called Metallic Life that will premiere at Art Basel, an international art fair in Basel, Miami Beach and Hong Kong, later this month.
"Cindy is obviously [Kaia's] main inspiration, and when we were shooting one day, she said, 'Oh, I know how to channel my mom,'" Smith explained to Vanity Fair. "I think one of the most beautiful things in the world is to see yourself in your children."
Ritts -- who was a close pal of Cindy's, even introducing her to her first husband, Richard Gere -- was the mastermind behind the iconic 1989 black-and-white shot of Cindy posing nude with fellow top models of the time, Stephanie Seymour, Christy Turlington, Tatjana Patitz and Naomi Campbell.
"A lot of people ask me what my mom has taught me about modeling," Kaia told the crowd at The Daily Front Row's Fashion Media Awards in September. "The truth is the things she teaches me go deeper than what pose to make or what my good side is."
"She teaches me to be kind, punctual -- if you guys know her then you know she's very punctual -- and to stand up for myself," she continued. "And when I think about it, aren't these [the] things every mother should teach their daughter?"
Back in August, ET caught up with Kaia at the premiere of her new Lifetime movie, Sister Cities, in Hollywood, California, where she detailed the moment she first realized she looked exactly like her mother.
"People have always told me that [I look just like her] and I never saw it," she admitted. "Until like a year ago and I was like 'OK!'" Now, Kaia admits that whenever she sees a photo of herself side-by-side with her mom, the similarities are "undeniable."
