"I don't think you ever get used to it, because this isn't normal," Gerber told ET's Jennifer Peros of a life filled with flash bulbs and red carpets.
The teen, who has been making a name for herself in the fashion world, received the coveted Model of the Year honor at the Front Row Awards, and her was family there to cheer her on.
"It means so much to me that they came," Gerber gushed of her mom, Cindy, dad Rande Gerber, and brother Presley. "We live in L.A., so for them to fly to New York and it's a busy time this year [during New York Fashion Week]. So I am really honored that they came to support me."
Beyond being thankful for her family's support, Gerber revealed the best modeling advice that she's ever gotten from her supermodel mom.
"She told me to have a thought behind every picture, every expression, so that you are not just like, staring, [or] blank behind your eyes. You have a reason for what you're doing."
